Made our trip to the lakes
We’d booked the afternoon 8 lakes tour for our last day in the Lake District as we wanted the opportunity to see a bit more than just Windermere/bowness and Ambleside and it was the best thing we did!

Our tour guide Tim was fantastic and very knowledgeable. We were very lucky to have the tour to ourselves (so essentially ended up getting a private tour experience!)

Tim answered all our questions and took us to various places of interest where we were able to get out of the minibus and have a look around.

Our favourite spot on the tour was the beautiful view over Derwentwater.

This tour was well worth the money and I’d recommend it to anyone visiting the lakes.

Excellent Tour!
May 2021
We had a wonderful day with Tim, our host from English Lakes Tours. He is quite knowledgeable about, well, pretty much everything in the Lake District! We did this tour and the Beatrix Potter tour with Tim and he provided great commentary, history and other tidbits about all of the places we visited. It was raining most of the weekend, and Tim made it pleasant and informative despite the poor weather. Tim also did an excellent job ensuring the vehicle was sanitized by adequately adhering to COVID requirements. We highly recommend this tour.

Awesome experience!

The half-day tour actually made our day, and the trip to the Lake District. Our tour guide, Tim, was really great and kept us fully engaged throughout. The tour was an awesome and memorable experience. Would totally recommend it for all visitors to the Lake District.

Thanks Rahul, Tim said he had a great time with your family yesterday. He particularly enjoyed talking to you about your flying experiences with the Indian Air Force! We hope that this short taste of the Lake District leaves you wanting more. Enjoy the rest of your holiday before you return to London.
