We signed on for the Mountain Goat Tour as a party of ten. It was very good! Our guide, Derek, was very knowledgeable - so much so we can now tell the difference between a swaledale and a herdwick! Haha. Thanks for the great day out! :)

I went to the 10 lakes tour with my sister in March. The tour was very good. We saw a lot of lovely scenery. The driver picked us up at our b&b and arrived on time. He was very friendly and helpful. It was a great tour.

We have taken most of the Mountain Goat day tours over the last three years (and the Lakes in Autumn holiday!) and have enjoyed all of them. They are a great way to see areas of the Lake District that only the most confident of drivers would otherwise attempt under their own steam! It is great to get off the... More
