Once you escaped the screaming kids, the lake is magnificent

Sorry badly behaved, no one in control of children, people were intimidated as such large rowdy groups

Having dithered around for a day trying to find our own way around The Lakes District, Supertours came to our rescue. We took Tour A & were impressed with Andy, our tour guide, as well as all the out of the way places we got to see. Andy was informative & funny & his driving was impeccable. He knows how... More

A great tour at a great price. The highlights advertised were Dove Cottage, Wordsworth Gardens, the boat ride across Windermere. My friend had come a long way for this and was eager to explore and experience anything that was to do with her favourite poet. Unfortunately the tour guide seemed to decide what was worth doing or not. He let... More

We had such a wonderful day out with andy. Our afternoon tour was cancelled so they booked us into the full day trip with no extra charge. Andy picked us up at our b&b and we started a great day. The bus unfortunately blew its turbo at the top of wrynose pass which was an unforgettable experience but handled very... More

We booked the Rock Mountain Tour which is an all day tour. The weather was rubbish unfortunately, but as we got to the top of the Rhino Pass, the fog started to break up and the resulting views were stunning. The journey through the Hardknot pass and onto the Eskdale railway were on some of the steepest roads in the... More

Great tour. Ticked all the boxes on the list and good commentary along the way. Have learnt some Viking words thanks to Andy and had a thoroughly enjoyable day. Arranged for us by the tourist information board at Bowness as the other company - goat something - we had seen with a winter tour told us they didn't run that... More

This winter special tour starts from Windermere. Andy, our guide picked us straight from Glenville house where we were put up. The tour was very comprehensive starting right from Kirkstone pass, lake district's highest road culminating to the stunning waterfalls of Skelwith force. Overall this has been a fabulous tour and Andy had been very helpful with his knowledge of... More

We took two tours, tour F with Edwin and tour A with Andy. They picked us up from our b&b in Bowness, and dropped us back off there at the end of the day, so we didn't have to navigate those narrow winding roads on our own. Tour A took us through Kirkstone Pass, past Brothers Water and to Ullswater.... More

Despite the tour we had booked (F Rocky) being cancelled, we decided to take the alternative (Tour A Lakes). The cancellation was no fault of the tour company, rather some silly people who thought there was to be a storm (it didn't happen). Tour A took in much of the Lake District, through mountain passes, via many lakes and also... More
