We recently spent a full day on the High Adventure trip, which was excellent. Our driver Graham was very knowledgeable and a considerate, careful driver. The roads were very narrow with very steep inclines but Graham handled them perfectly. Leaving before 10am and returning after 5pm we all felt that the day was excellent value for money.

I had so much fun on this tour. I think it is the best way to spend your time there. I really saw so much of the area. The tour guide was joyful and insightful. Even though high winds cancelled our boat cruise, a museum tour was organised. Autumn/October is a great time to go as the trees were in... More

This was a very good tour. We learned a lot about Beatrix Potter as a person and as an author, and we learned about the other talented members of her family. We traveled to the locales that many of the stories were based on and saw some of her original sketches. The small bus was the right size for the... More

We spent the day with a superb guide, Peter, on the high adventure tour. He is knowledgeable and very personable and shared just the right amount of material. The tour covered a great deal of area, and if you at all have reservations about driving in the Lake District (and it is often very challenging) then this is the tour... More

Booked a full day 10 lakes spectacular tour, I was a bit skeptical initially due to a bad weather forecast, but a bit of a rain in the morning and a sunny afternoon made the trip more awesome. The views were truly spectacular. Lisa was very kind and refreshingly cheerful as a guide and made sure we all had a... More

A tour bus for about 14 will pick you up from the hotel or accomodation you are staying in. Or you can join them at the Windermere Train station. The driver is a knowledgeable guide. You visit and stop off at 4 or 5 places in a day. You have a boat trip and visit Keswick for a lunchbreak. Really... More

We went on a 10 lakes on a one day tour with Mountain Goat. Our guide, Lisa, was so knowledgeable. We visited almost the main 10 lakes and a few pictorial villages around the national park and she explained us every little story and history about the area. We stopped frequently on different spots where we could take pictures and... More
