Alan, our guide, was extremely informative and patient and not overly-talkative or repetitive. Gave a great narrative of the Lake District with an 8-hour day tour full of hills and dales. I would be hard-pressed to say I've been to a more beautiful area. Lakes, rivers, streams, valleys and mountains in every shade of green dotted with sheep and cows... More

We had a private tour of Hadrian's wall with Derek. The coach, a Mercedes Sprinter, was comfortable and spacious. The tour guide was exceptional: Knowledgeable, pleasant, practical, informative, friendly and gentle - making sure we got the best of our $$ spent. Ask for Derek if you want an incredibly knowledgeable and informed guide! The trip to Hadrian's wall was... More

I was staying in Keswick and booked the tour to be collected from the Central Car Park in Keswick. This was where I had my only problem of the whole tour, although they say the Central Car Park it doesn't say whereabouts in the car park and the mini bus that collected me wasn't a familiar Mountain Goat sign written...

We stopped for linch, he pointed... More
