Geoff the driver gave an interesting comentary and clear instructions on how long we had at each stop, making sure we had enough time left for the final stop at Vindolanda. As the description says, this is still being excavated and is brimming with Roman history. Make sure that you have enough time left to enjoy the museum too.
We then had the added pleasure of coming home over Shap with the sun shining brilliantly on the snow'topped mountains.
An extra bonus was driving past five of the lakes.

As regular day trip tourists my wife and I had a wonderful 9 hour experience with Duncan.
He was a very careful and considerate driver with regular comfort stops. His on board commentary was clear and applicable to our trip.A highly recommended day tour!

I enjoyed the day. Derek was a good driver and very informative. I'm from Australia and have always wanted to see Hadrian's Wall - I'm very happy I picked this tour. It wasn't rushed, a very relaxing day. The Roman Museum was very well done and Vindolanda was amazing.
Thankyou Derek for making this a great day.
Sue.

The one star is because we actually liked the Driver Tess BUT we think she has never done this tour before. She was adamant that the parish church in Ambleside is St Katherines (it’s not). She got lost numerous times (including going via Gretna Green) leaving us with less time at the places of interest than we should have had.
Worst moment of the day was when she drove the minibus on the wrong side of the road into oncoming traffic when turning right because she “thought it was a dual carriageway”
The driver was a lovely affable lady though leaving me to think mountain goat had dropped her into this route without proper training. She was very stressed and I did not want to make a chaotic day worse by taking my own frustration out on her. I won’t be travelling with mountain goat again needless to say.

Dear Alison Thank you for your comments, it is the first time we have heard this feedback, and of course we are disappointed to read your review. We always advise customers to contact our office if they have any concerns about our service, either big or small, this can be done during all our tours as our telephones are monitored during our tour schedule. It would be unfair to comment regarding this tour and any individual without us investigating the matter fully. However, all our driver guides receive training on routes and tours before they ‘deliver’ them. We wish you had raised this review with us before posting on TripAdvisor so we could have tried to rectify the situation somewhat. I am sorry you left our tour feeling frustrated and didn’t have a good experience with us; this is never how we want our passengers to leave. Best wishes, Mountain Goat

Your tour guide and driver Derek was superbly informative. He was also very patient with me as I am a little infirm. Derek was careful to point out the areas of wall that remain and ensured we all appreciated the superb scenery in general. I was astonished by the area of the excavations at Vindolanda and with Derek's help in particular could readily understand the size and importance of this Roman outpost. Derek was also careful to point out the wild life and flowers as we went along. His obvious love of this part of the north of England game across in spades. The audio / visual earlier in the day was superb. I knew little about Hadrian before I went on this tour - I now know a lot more. Superb mini-bus by the way, with excellent seating and air con.

Great way to kill a few hours. The wall is there to walk and see. There is a cafe on site with clean toilets. The roman museum was interesting. The ruins and fort itself has a few boards dotting round, quizzes etc to make it more fun - for all ages

We toured from Windermere with our tour guide Derek and he did a fantastic job. He was so engaging and made a point of explaining everything that was available to see. Many spots of wall still visible. The archaeological site was fascinating. It was a fairly long drive but enough spots for Derek to point out along the way that it worked well.

The day trip to several sites along and about Hadrian's Wall was an excellent way to see quite a lot in a relatively short amount of time. The driver and guide Derek was interesting and informative and kept the group moving along on schedule while remaining utterly patient and without seeming to rush us. In addition to the information he provided about the Romans and Hadrian's Wall, I particularly appreciated the additional commentary about the flora, agriculture, and economy in the area.

We had no car on this trip to the Lake District, so this excursion gave us two for one — a great scenic overview of the Lake District and a taste of Roman Britain. The Mountain Goat driver was very knowledgeable and helped us understand how much has been reused from the wall in houses, even churches. The museum and (especially) the active archeological dig site at Vindolanda was a treat!
