Excellent tour and I enjoyd every single moment. Take the 10 lake tour or the adventure. They're fun with more excitment for the 10 lake. Ask for Elliot he was an amazing guy and very expert. Very cool person. If he will accept my offer, I will pay him twice his salary.

My daughter and I booked this tour prior to our visit to the Lakes and it turned out to be the highlight of our stay. It was great, even better to sit back in the mini bus and not have to worry about negotiating the narrow roads over the passes! Mike our driver was very friendly and very knowledgeable which...

We went to Windermere and opt for the tour from Mountain Goat. It covers a large part of lake district. I really appreciate Phil, who was our guide on the tour, for giving us few moments, which we could cherish life long. Lake Cruise at Ullswater was the best part of the trip. Thank you Mountain Goat.. :-)

I wasn't in the Lake District for very long and decided to do a whole day's tour. For me it was a great decision. Our guide was Tony who was brilliant. Very knowledgeable and funny. We had lots of stops including an hour for lunch in a village. It was obviously a long day in a minibus but I feel... More

I joined two day tours with Mountain goat. Graham and Phil are really great tour guide. They are very experienced. If you dont like bumpy ride, dont join the high adventure day tour. I personally like it as it is more exciting than a roller coaster ride. The tours cover most of the popular stunning scenes at lake district. I... More
