Thanks to Derek for this tour which was really good, informative and I must say the way he dealt with the vomiting child was exemplary - he really did look after his passengers. The blue roll for wiping the windows of condensation was necessary and useful, and worked well. There were 2 downsides were their sound system frequently suffered interference... More

As my first time visiting the Lake District, I was looking for a tour to enjoy as much as I could from my 2 days stay. The 10 lake tour was a great option. Was able to visit several places, and the tour guide took us to amazing views. The driver was on time early in the morning and did... More

Both me and my boyfriend enjoyed this tour. We were very lucky with the weather so were able to enjoy some fantastic views of the lakes and countryside. Chris was very knowledgeable, friendly and a very good driver. We would definitely recommend this tour.

This tour was my best in the UK. I did the day trip up from London and was met at the station by my tour guide. I was lucky enough to be the only tourist that day and to have good weather for the whole day. Not sunny but clear enough to be able to enjoy the views of the... More

I took the ten lake tour with Tony as our tour guide, it was a fantastic tour. I got picked up from my hotel around 9.15 and spent the whole day being driven around by the very knowledgeable Tony who allowed up time plenty of time to take pictures and to stretch our legs.

妻との新婚旅行でかねてより行きたかった湖水地方に行き、 アンディさんのガイドで湖水地方を回りました。 景色、動物について解説してくれたり、 ウィンダミア湖を一望できるスポットを教えてくれたり、 とても良くしてもらいました。 このツアーは心からおすすめします。 I visited Lake District that we had hoped to visit as honeymoon in February and looked around with Andy-san's guidance. He explained us about lovely animals and showed us wonderful suprise-view on Windermere. We highly reccomend you to join this tour.

We had a great tour through the Lake District in Northern England. It was a perfect way to see many sites in that area without any stress. We were allowed time to have lunch in a local village and the tour also included a boat tour around one of the lakes. If you want a nice day out, without having... More
