We didn't have a car while staying in the Lake District and we wanted to see more of the area. Andy's tour was perfect. I had asked to see lakes, high mountain passes and a special request to go to the World Owl Centre at Muncaster Castle near Ravenglass on the coast. Andy picked us up in Keswick and took... More

We went on a 1 and a half day tour with Andy around the end of July. We were flexible with the tour schedule so we let Andy decide for us, and he certainty did not disappoint! He picked us up at Penrith station and first took us to his favourite castle and then a boat trip on Ullswater with... More

Andy reacted quickly and was able to pick us up at the Penrith train station when we called same day. Since it was a beautiful day and he was free, he drove us around the northern Lake District all afternoon, including a castle I haven't seen in any book and a boat ride on Lake Ullswater, and dropped us at...

We arrived by train at Penrith, but wanted to see the Lake District. Andy picked us up in a comfortable 'people mover' that was perfect for the country roads. We were the only passengers. He took us all through the lakes, with a very interesting and informative commentary. He tailors the tour to your exact taste, and I could ask... More

My daughters (ages 14 and 11) and I spent two days touring the Lake District with Andy Jackson from Show Me Cumbria tours. I wanted to really get out and see the area, but I am afraid to drive on the left, and I also wanted to have someone guide us who really knew the area. Andy fit the bill... More

The Lake District is a nearly perfect destination. Picturesque lakes and valleys, a pallet of nearly every green imaginable, meandering stone walls, and lots of sheep. The roads are narrowing, winding and can be quite daunting. Andy Jackson owner of Shw Me Cumbria tours has the perfect solution. A custom tour by Andy- this is a one man operation and... More

I booked Andy from his website a couple of weeks before; we emailed each other and arranged a tailor made experience. He picked us up from our B&B and set off on a truly awe inspiring 8 hour tour of the Lakes and surrounding countryside. Andy knows the lanes like the back of his hand and drove us off the... More

Andy helped us with station transfers and a day out in the Lake District. He made our travels very comfortable. Andy knows the area very well and despite the bad weather ensured we got a good look at what the Lakes have to offer. Andy also took care of our daughter' sensitivity to motion sickness and drove with care. I... More

We had checked out Andy's tours from Australia and were not disappointed. We spent a wonderful five hours with Andy, taking up his suggestions and also fitting in our own wish to visit Beatrix Potter's home. As Andy knows the area so well we saw lots of highlights of the Lakes District and he also acted as photographer. Highly recommended.
