High Adventure tour - driver Chris By far and without question THE best way to experience the Lake District. The tour takes in some of the the most breathtaking views I have ever seen, all expertly pointed out by our driver, who despite some of the narrowest, steepest and windiest roads I have travelled on, managed to make the tour...

We recently did the Yorkshire moors tour, it was a great day out but we found it a little long winded. The highlight for us was the visit to the wensleydale creamery but was a little dissapointed that we only stopped there for 30 minutes so the visit felt rushed and there was no time to do the tour of...

The last Thursday in July and a VERY hot & sunny day. We had booked a "High Adventure" tour from Windermere as we arrived on Wednesday and were leaving that weekend so unfortunately could fit in a start from Keswick. (Hint, Park in Windermere Station car park - it's cheaper than the ones in town and closer to the start... More

Gosh Mountain Goat were amazing from our online booking, confirming pick up the day before from our Hotel at the end of Windermere. Peter our driver of a modern 16 seater minibus was also our guide he was so courteous and passionate about The Lake District we were hooked. An 8 hour tour taking in 10 Lakes, a boat cruise... More

Booked on the 10 lakes tour and had the most wonderful time with our guide and driver, Peter. I had met Peter the day before on a pick up from Hawkshead and was absolutely delighted to see him again! He was friendly, knowledgeable and patient. The tour is a great way of seeing the lakes and villages in the most... More

We did the Ten Lakes and Highland Pass tours.... both were excellent and our guide on both days was Tony Scott who was very knowledgeable, witty and very helpful; always happy to take photos for people and gave us a great recommendation for dinner. These one day tours (approx 9.45 - 5.30) are a great way to see a lot... More

A whole day tour of 10-lakes in a mini-bus with up to 16 people from 10 different countries made this trip a very nice day out. The driver/guide Derek kept his humour up with almost non-stop commentary, which can be either very interesting or annoying depending on your own mood during the day. Overall, a great introduction to the area... More

We made 3 trips with Mountain Goat. The High Adventure and Ten Lakes Spectacular were really good and was quite scenic along with boat and train rides. The Beatrix Potter one was not so good as these two but those who are interested in B Potter history would enjoy it. If you only had time to do one of the... More

Took the Ten Lakes tour. Lisa, our driver-guide, was helpful, informative, friendly, amusing and accommodating. A full bus, but all 16 seemed to enjoy the trip immensely. The scenery is, of course, spectacular, but also learned to distinguish several interesting species of sheep and cattle! We had time to stop for photos, a meal, shopping, etc., without feeling rushed. The... More
