Excellent tour! The guide was well-informed and very friendly. We deviated a bit from the description in the brochure, but it was for the better! I appreciated that we got to stop and explore a bit, as well as pause for the occasional photo. I would definitely book with this company again.

I took the Beatrix Potter tour and found it really really really awesome. The tour guide, Elliot, was really great and friendly. I was worried before I came that it would be difficult to tour windermere since I don't have a car, but with Mountain Goat, I got a nice, satisfying tour and would really recommend this to others too!

We booked the Ten Lakes tour with Mountain Goat and had a memorable time with our driver Elliott. I would definitely recommend the tour for anyone who is short on time and without a car. For context, it was our first visit to the UK, we stayed two nights in Keswick and were without a car. Because the company is... More

There were just the two of us for the tour, but Mountain Goat still ran the tour and we felt like V.I.Ps especially the other half as it was his 80th Birthday!

Fantastic day tour. Our friendly informative guide Elliot filled us in on the local history in-between steering us over perilous passes, stopping for us to take in the full range of scenic views: characterful villages, rugged mountains, dramatic lakeside scree and the many Herdwick sheep. We even saw a birds of prey demonstration at Muncaster castle and still had time... More
