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

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.

Wonderful way to see the sights with a knowledgable driver.

Robert was an excellent driver and guide helping us understand the Viking derivation of words, understanding the need for bathroom stops. We enjoyed the views from the road as well as the boat cruise. It was a relaxed informative tour of the area learning the geographical lore and cultural heritage. Pick up and drop off near our hotel was an appreciated feature.

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.

Great views, very knowledgeable and interesting guide.

Great trip right from getting picked up from my lodgings. Chris the driver/guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, took us to all the places we wanted and more. Got some great photos and had an amazing time, well worth doing!
