A day with Mountain Goat formed part of our Lake District tour with Eastons Holidays. We were taken from our hotel and proceded to the high ground of the Western Fells where I'd think twice about driving. Chris is an excellent driver and guide, very knowledgeable, and provided hot drinks high up at Blea Fell. Hardknott Pass and the Roman... More

My mom and I booked the high adventure tour from the tourist information. It was a great pleasure to travel together with Mark! He is an experienced driver and a funny tour guide. He told us a lot about what he's known about the attractions we would never find in our own and he always answered questions patiently! Because the... More

Just spent a few days in the Lakes at Bowness On Windermere and took two of your tours to see the area. The Ten Lake Spectacular was Spectacular. I was picked up at my B and B by your lovely driver Kevin, the area is stunning and so was the cruise on Derwent Water. The information along the way was... More

My husband and I popped up to the Lake District during our trip back to the UK to visit family earlier this month. We only had a couple of days and wanted to see as much of the area as possible. After reading the reviews for Mountain Goat Tours, we booked the 10 Lake Tour and it lived up to... More

Mountain Goat do several different tours, this one was really good all day tour of the Lake District which includes a cruise on one of the lakes, we had Derwent Water. A really really excellent way to... More

We stayed in Windermere for 3 days and on 2 of those days we took Mountain Goat tours. First day was the Beatrix Potter with Robin. Robin was an excellent guide and incredibly informative but we were very disappointed that we only had 20 minutes at Hill Farm. This was the main reason we took the tour, and it was... More

Our High Mountain tour with Chris was a major highlight in our recent trip to England. My husband and I typically do not care for tours but this one with small group and excellent price attracted our attention and we decided to try it. Our driver guide proved to be outstanding in every way--from slowing down or stopping to call... More
