My group of 4 found Andy Jackson of ShowmeCumbria via Trip Advisor. We had a single day in which to see the highlights of the truly beautiful Lake District, and Andy made the most of it. A native of the area, he knew of off the beaten track spots as well as the don't-miss sights. About a week before our arrival, he asked about our interests so he could customize a tour, which he did most successfully. Andy is available by the day or the hour; we hired him for 5 hours, and extended it to 6 as we were enjoying ourselves so much.
Most guide books speak of the beautiful hikes in the region; we were concerned that since we are not hikers, we'd miss out. Andy made sure that we didn't. As a free service, he also photographs you and the sights, compiles the photos on a disc, and sends it to your home after the trip. (He even returned a sweater (to the US) that we left behind!) We got way more than our money's worth from this knowledgeable and personable guide.
