A lifetime experience to cherish for ever

On August 14, 2018 we joined the "Lake District Tour from Manchster", organised by Mountain Goat Tours & Holidays. We had booked the tour online from “Get Your Guide”. The tour started at 9 AM and lasted around 7 PM. Our first stop was at the tourist office of the organizers at Windermere, a small but beautiful railway station. Next stop was at hill top and then visited Beatrix Potter's 17th-century farmhouse and gardens. Potter a writer, illustrator, natural scientist, and conservationist best known for her children's books featuring animals, such as those in The Tale of Peter Rabbit. She is credited with preserving much of the land that now constitutes the Lake District National Park. Lunch time was at a village Hawkshead , famous for its Old Grammar School where William Wordsworth was a student. Finally, but not the least, the cruise in lake Windermere. All in all it was a lifetime experience. The whole tour was well organized and our guide Carl and Mathew mesmerized everybody p

Made me fall in love with the Lake District

When Tim arrived at the meeting point at King Street, he smiled and said "it's just you today, so we're off!" The tour could have easily been cancelled, so greatly appreciated that they honored the booking! Tim is incredibly knowledgable about the entire area and history, and the many layers that play into the Lake District and the sites we visited. My brother-in-law grew up in the Lake District, and appreciated Tim's perspective and information - as well as the times he would stand back and just let me drink in the scenery. We were able to accomplish so much in a day but it didn't feel rushed. Thank you for such a wonderful introduction to the lakes and villages - we'll be back and for the Beatrix Potter tour!

Scenic Tour of the Lake District in Winter Reviewed by Brooke, 11/26/2018

an awesome way to discover the Lake District

I read the reviews prior to booking my tour, i can assure you it was excellent, even on a rainy day... wow. Clear, informative commentary through-out; talking about the historic events etc and the destinations are very well structured showing awesome views across the Lakes. You have plenty of stops to take photos and a lunch hour in Keswick, what more could you ask for? The boat ride was a great laugh too with an odd shower of water for front seat passengers hahaha. The views of the area are stunning. and i would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who visits the lakes, a grand day out and a SPECTACULAR host-driver Anne was a star. An unforgettable experience, thank you.

Phil is an outstanding and delightful guide

We could not have imagined a more knowledgeable and accommodating guide as Phil. He tailored our tour to meet our specific interests in literary figures. His pleasure in sharing his unique details of the authors’ biographies and their creative processes brought their lives and their contributions to our culture alive for us. We recommend him to anyone who wants their experience to live on.

A great day out- saw lots of beautiful places and had time for walks

Our tour guide was friendly from the moment we met which helped make the day run well. Despite the rain at the beginning we made the most of the day. My only regret was not having more time at Muncaster castle. Otherwise all the other stops were relaxed and enjoyable, and very very beautiful.
