My 9 year old daughter and I took the small ferry from Bowness to Ferry House last Wednesday and then a 16 seater mini-bus from Ferry House up to Hill Top with the sole purpose of visiting Beatrix Potter's home. The boat ride across Windermere was beautiful on a bright sunny morning and Richard, our mini bus driver was particularly... More

I booked three tours to get the 10% bulk discount, reasoning that this was undoubtedly the best way to see as much as possible of the region. It is not cheap but, what you get, is pick-up from your hotel or guest house, a comfortable mini-bus with a group of typically 10-15 people and friendly service with many stops. The... More

On a recent camping trip to the Lakes I booked 2 seats on their "Best of the Lakes" tour. The bus itself was very new and very comfy; Jim our driver had encyclopaedic knowledge of the geology, geography, history and culture of the whole Lakes landscape. From 9.30am pick-up in Windermere to being set down at around 6 pm, my... More

My parents and I joined Mountain Goat's Ten Lakes Spectacular and The High Adventure tours. Both tours were very enjoyable. The trip plans were excellent. We had sufficient time to visit each place and the trips between places were not too long. Our tour guide, Eliot, was very friendly and knowledgeable about Lake District. He told us many interesting things... More

As two college aged girls, we were by far the youngest on the bus, but we had a good time. Our driver Derek was very knowledgeable and nice. We chose the Ten Lakes Spectacular Tour, and it was pretty pricey (£39 or ~$60). We only spent one day in the Lake District, so it was a good way to get... More

We did the high mountain tour and I'm glad I paid for Malcolm our tour guide to drive as some of bends are quite demanding and I think you would miss out on a lot concentrating on the road. Malcolm himself is a lovely fella who's knowledge of the area is second to none. If you like your views you're... More

We had a wonderful time on this day long tour and would definitely recommend it. The Ten Lakes Tour by Mountain Goat is a really good way of taking in the breathtaking scenery and rich history of the area in one day. We were fortunate to have a knowledgeable tour guide, Alan, who was very patient and accommodating. Being a... More

When driving on holiday I sometimes feel that I miss out on some of the sights so although not generally a fan of coach tours, with the often limited amount of opportunity to fully appreciate the destination, I chose the Ten Lakes Tour in order to get an overview of the east side of the Lake District. This full day... More

Malcolm our guide was informative and witty. We did the 10 lake spectacular and I couldn't fault him. Had a lovely day with even more stops than expected.

This was a great tour! Of course the scenery is breathtaking, but our tour guide Alan made the journey truly memorable. He was so knowledgeable about the area, its history, famous characters who lived or passed through the area, and curious or funny stories. Aside from being immensely entertaining, he was also very accommodating to everyone's needs. Would highly recommend... More
