A great, complete and fun tour

We had Carl as our tour guide and he was just amazing. I went on this tour by myself and to be honest, I was a bit nervous. But Carl made me feel very comfortable and he involved everyone in the bus. I found the tour not to be too long or too short but just right. You get enough time to explore the viewing points and with every point there is a little background story. I would definitely recommend it if you are new to the Lake District or don't have a lot of time spend there.

Great view of the lakes in a day

Our day tour of the lakes was a wonderful snapshot of a large area over several hours. Our guide, Elliott was very knowledgable and friendly and gave us some interesting facts on our journey. The views were spectacular and despite the freezing temperatures , we thoroughly enjoyed the day and the mountains looked very spectacular in the snow.

Awesome experience

It was a fantastic tour which covered almost all the famous lakes and there was enough time to stop at the areas of beautiful landscapes to take photos. Also the transportation was very comfortable and our guide, called Malcolm, was very cheerful and friendly having a lot of interesting information.
