Our family of four (13 and 9 year old) were delighted by Andy's driving tour of the Lake District. His local knowledge meant we could sit back and totally relax and enjoy the scenery, photo stops, historical and recent history. Wonderful meal at the Druncken Duck - a great way to experience this special part of the island!

Like so many other new visitors to the Lake District, I really didn't know where to go or what to see. Thanks to Rick Steves's advice, I booked a room at a b&b in Keswick and I then scheduled a half-day tour with Andy of Show Me Cumbria. Both pieces of advice were invaluable; both created the perfect first trip... More

We heard about Andy's tour at our hotel welcome meeting, by the time he was finished telling us about the tour I just knew we had to do it. Today we joined with the lovely Rosemary and John and had a great tour with Andy! What Andy doesn't know about Cumbria simply hasn't happened yet he's the father of tour... More

My sister and I booked a 3-day visit to the Lakes for some fell walking and were fortunate that our B&B recommended Andy. Coming from overseas and not wanting to rent a car or break the bank, it turned out to be the perfect solution. We contacted Andy in advance and were able to arrange transfers from/to the train station... More

Andy drove us through the Lake region and the Dales as requested. He was very knowledgeable and personable. The 5+ hours were enjoyable and informative. We highly recommend Andy. His fee for the trip was quite reasonable and he is great driver.

Albert N We visited Cumbria in February 2015 with my wife and son. As this was our first visit we were not sure of where to go and approached the reception guys who gave us Andy Jackson's number. I called Andy and he agreed to pick us the next day by the reception around 10:00. We were excited but unsure... More

I planned a holiday with my partner and was worried that it may turn out to be a damp squib considering that I had not planned where I should be visiting within Cumbria. I booked a tour with Andy but was not expecting the world as the cynical soul that I am but on the day Andy made all the... More

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
