In the Lakes District for a couple of days and the Ten Lakes Spectacular was the perfect introduction. Mini bus meant the group size was right and the driver/guide was knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommended.

First thing to note is we used the private minibus service as opposed to one of tours! We booked via a coach comparison website and everything ran smoothly. I then contacted direct to pay for the booking and spoke to a lovely lady called jane who confirmed everything and made sure everything was correct. We were collected last night and... More

We have just returned to our hotel after a day our touring the 10 lakes. Tony our driver is excellent and has a brilliant knowledge of the area and stops to point out interesting landmarks/sites along the way. We stopped often to jump out and take a photo or two. We also stopped at Keswick for lunch and Grasmere for... More

Many thanks to Peter our driver and tour rep for our mountain goat tour today. The tour picked us up on time and provided very informative and interesting information for a perfect day out including lake cruise. Peter went over above the call of duty even driving past a chemist so I could pop in for tablets for my indigestion!!... More

Joined this afternoon tour the other day and was very impressed. Peter, our driver guide was a real of source of information, and entertaining. It was great to travel down the Langdale valley for the magnificent views - especially as the mountains had a covering of snow! Peter stopped several times along the way & it brought back good memories... More

We took the goat tour on a very wet day, it was the last day of our trip so suited us well. Lovely to see all the scenery without having to get very wet. Would do it again when not out walking.

Our driver was Tony. He was extremely knowledgable and we really enjoyed his commentary. We were fortunate enough to have good weather and the rain held off. The bus was very comfortable and Tony explained that the buses are serviced every eight weeks to ensure they're in tip top condition for the hilly roads. We all felt safe and secure... More

We took the 10 Lakes tour and this one. This afternoon tour included the mountainous valleys of the Langdales, the Tarn Hows, and time for the medieval village of Hawkshead. The afternoon ends with a cruise on the longest lake in England, Windermere. Our guides we're excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed both of these days.

I did the 28.12.2016 tour of the 10 lakes, effectively you don't have the extra hour and a half you would in summer. Whatever time we had was well spent on seeing all the major points along the route, and we had enough time to get off and take photos, or experience the places. My shots came out quite well... More
