Millennium Travel is a fantastic tour operator. We just booked the tour one day before our trip to Lake District. Before booking we call there office at Lake District to check if there is any car available for four of us on our proposed date. Their guide Andy Binns received our call and he is a very polite person who gave answer of all our query and arrange a car for four of us within very short notice. Thanks very much Andy.
On the day of travel, their car reached our hotel in exact time. More of it, we become delighted when we saw the car…it was an 8 seated car for four of us. OMG it was amazing. Steave was our driver cum guide. He was a kind, polite person with full knowledge of Lake District. He knows every nook and corner of Lake District…he knows all the point of LD from where it looks most beautiful. He took us to all the beautiful places of Lake District and give ample time for photo shoot. He was very happy to stop everywhere we wanted. Thanks Steve we enjoyed a lot…Thank you very much. Our overall experience with Millennium Travel was excellent...we are very very happy!

We could never have seen what we did in 2 days on our own! Andy was an excellent tour guide. He picked us up from our B&B on time each day. His knowledge of the area was so valuable and not only did he give us a wonderful tour but was helpful in giving us some options to do on our own. We did not have a car but even if we had we would not have known (or wanted to drive) the lovely little roads he took us on. Thank you Andy!

Lake District is a wonderful place if you decide to walk, hike, climb etc. Obviously this requires time. We had only a couple of days, so we booked a guided Tour with Millenium Travel. They picked us up at our B&B. On Time. Visited several Lakes (sorry Meres!) from their most scenic view. Taken directly and confortably to Wordworth's Dove Cottage, ancient sites, waterfalls and finally a cruise on Windermere. Andy, the guide, is very friendly and prepared and answer always precisely to your questions.
So, if you want to bite all you can in the Lake District, for me, this is the cleverest way.
Thank you guys.

Last Sep I made a very last minute booking for a couple to visit Lake District on an overnight package consisting of accomodation and certain tours covering the trip. We were extremely grateful to Andy/owner of Millennium who accepted our booking, went over to help us to secure discount for the accomodation (really last minute, i.e. following day). on the arrival date the train that was supposed to bring the couple from London to Winderemere had been delay which will cause the couple to have missed the pm tours. Extremely helpful Andy gave an absolutely gorgeous alternative to seek help from one of his buddies to bring the couple for an equivalent tour exclusively. All not for a penny more. Clearly in any Terms n Conditions, if you miss the tour for whatever reason incl a national train delay, the penalty is on one own's accord. Andy had a great heart and felt for this couple and took upon himself to deliver an exception. Truly no words can express this touch except to keep them in your hearts to be eternally grateful and pray for his business to bloom - which basically an honest businessman deserves!!! 3 big cheers for Andy's exception, beautiful memories in Lake District - which i myself will plan a day soon. Understand the place is simply therupeutic and one of the best place in the world to unwind. Best of luck Andy!!!
