Amazing driving
Jul 2021 • Family
Excellent day out visiting some awesome places.
Our guide - Lisa - was fantastic. Excellent knowledge throughout the day, but her driving skills, especially getting the bus up and over Hardknott Pass, were exceptional.

Mountain Goat High Tour - Full Day Tour
Jul 2020
Highly Recommend! Fantastic Days Out! Socially distanced, even our masks did not spoil the fun! Having driven the route previously over the spectacular Wrynose Pass and Hardknot Pass (probably the highest roads in England at one in three!) we were a little apprehensive for being in a minibus, (comfortable as this was) on these steep and narrow roads! But it was wonderful being able to experience this as passengers. Plenty of stops for amazing photographs, amenities and sight seeing. Friendly humorous driver added to the whole experience. Loved the 10 Lakes Tour as well! 11 out of 10 for Mountain Goat Tours.You've got to do this!

Srunning scenery
Feb 2019 • Couples
We took the High Adventure tour with Tony as our guide. It was a fantastic day, with stunning scenery and plenty of photo stops. Tony has a great sense of humour. The minibus did develop a problem but Mountain Goat quickly provided another at one of our stops, so we weren't inconvenienced at all. Would definitely go on another tour with them if we return to the area.

We are happy you had a good experience with us and the tour went smoothly, even with the mechanical issues your bus experienced! We find that our team are very good at dealing with issues and we're happy you did too. Hopefully we'll see you again when you next visit the Lake District! Best wishes, Mountain Goat

Spectacular, intimate tour of the beautiful Lake District
Oct 2017 • Couples
My husband and I wanted to do a group tour of the Lake District but it was sold out by the time we went to book so we ended up doing a private tour instead. We spent the day with Jimmy, who was just the best tour guide! He was a local resident, so he knew all the ins and outs of the roads and the best places to stop for photos. We also loved his history lessons and his knowledge of all the various plants and trees! We didn't get the greatest weather for our tour but we really didn't mind at all! I highly recommend a private tour if you are a shutterbug who needs to take photos of everything.
