Did the above Tour with 2 Greek visitors. We all had a fabulous day. Richard, our driver was smooth, courteous and full of interesting local knowledge. After 50 years driving for a living, it was pure luxury to be taken around a beautiful part of our country. Try it, you wont be dissapointed.

A perfect guide and experience for a short visit to the lakes. We were part of a group taken in a minibus tour around the lakes and what a great tour. The bus was well equipped to get us safely around despite the ice and snow in one or two places. The driver gave a fabulous commentary as we went... More

These tours are not the cheapest but are one of the best ways to see Lake District. Extremely good variety available. We did an all day tour including the little Ratty Railway which was fantastic. It rained most of the day but that never spoilt a thing. Driver had a coffee or tea on board mini bus for us all.... More

Very good. Friendly staff and friendly drivers. Visited every year for last ten years. Good for getting around the lakes especially if you don't drive or have limited mobility

I would recommend this tour if you are short on time and are unfamiliar with the area. My husband and I took the whole day tour which covered 10 lakes/meres and allowed plenty of short stops to stretch your legs and take photos. The driver made us feel very safe on the narrow roads and was knowledgeable and pleasant.

My wife and I booked through Evan Evans tours and enjoyed the most memorable of days, courtesy of our fantastic Mountain Goat tour guide, Malcolm. We enjoyed the Winter Southern Lakes Highlights tour with cream tea included at the Lindeth Howe Country Hotel. The tour was pitched perfectly both in terms of places visited, content and knowledge imparted by Malcolm.... More

With a limited amount of time available, I packed in one full day tour (10 Lakes Spectacular) and a half day one (Southern Lakes & Fells.) I actually felt blessed that as a 'mature' (though not infirm) solo traveller, this company was just around the corner from Windermere Station, and 50 yds from my chosen cosy B&B (the Lingmoor, 7...

Unfortunately, I think I picked the worst day in early November to take this ten lake tour but it was still worth it. First, Windermere is a really quaint little town with lots to see. If I could do it all over again, I would spend a full day there. As it was, I took the train from Manchester in... More

Our driver picked us up at the train station in Oxenholme and brought us to Windermere. He was very courteous and knowledgeable. We took a tour on the lake via the ferry and the driver picked us up on the other side of the lake and drove us through the mountains, stopping for some AMAZING pictures every so often. Had... More

My sister and I went on the winter 10 lakes tour today, with very friendly and knowledgeable driver Malcolm A fantastic trip, a great overview and introduction to the Lakes which neither of us had visited before Malcolm combined very skilful and patient driving ( some of the lanes and turns are incredibly tight) with a commentary that was full...
