Jane, the driver-guide, took us on an all-day ride about the stunning Lake District. Wow! very knowledgeable and confident driver, Jane shared her love of this beautiful part of the Earth. No need to go to the Canadian Rockies when you have these picturesque passes and pristine lakes --in the rain and fog. From 10am-5:30pm, we had an enjoyable thrilling... More

Went on this with 3 other member of my family. Was brilliant and our driver Elliott was very informative and took his time with everything. I loved Sarah Nelsons gingerbread shop which I didn't even know was included on route and Elliott got us there before they closed. The slate mine was a nice treat as well as visiting ullswater...

In the second week of August, while on a short break, I took advantage of two tours, the Beatrix Potter with Hilltop farm, and the 10 lake Spectacular. They were both wonderful. I was astonished that I saw so much on each tour, and the drivers/tour guides were full of information, and so helpful. On Beatrix Potter we drove round... More

I did the Beatrix Potter Tour which visited Hill Top- the home of Beatrix Potter, Hawkeshead (Beatrix Potter Gallery), Conniston Water and Yew Tree Farm- used in the movie- Miss Potter as Hill Top. The tour was really good- I would have preferred more time at Hill Top as I had to rush through the house in order to have... More

My wife and I booked 4 tours with Mountain Goat, Yorkshire Dales, Hadrian's Wall, Ten Lakes and the High Adventure between end of July and beginning of August. All these tours were great and through them we got to know more about life in the Lake District, its history, traditions, culture and obviously enjoyed the scenery, even though it rained... More

Our Highland Pass Tour turned out to be excellent! Our knowledgeable guide Tony drove us around safely and smoothly, cracking jokes all the while. The tour encompassed fantastic views along winding mountain roads, and the mini steam train ride was a real treat as well. All in all, we had a wonderful time and definitely got our money's worth!

The drivers of the minibus kept us informed of all the places/history and general info as we were driven up the hills on narrow roads. The views were spectacular and we had many photo stops, one highlight was drinking coffee& biscuits looking down into the valleys. Wonderful! We also had a short ride on the Ravenglass & Eskdale steam railway... More

I've thoroughly enjoyed my getaway in the Lake District with the Mountain Goat company & staying at the Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel i.e. a packaged tour of 3 day tours + 2 nights, and additionally, I extended my stay for another 2 nights! The organised break did justice to the beauty of the Lake District & really provided a... More
