We didnt do a tour and probably missed a lot, tours are great but we were limited by time, maybe next time But we loved the lakes district and would easily go back foa longer stay. My partner didnt like the ducks and pidgeons but they were harmless and we had a good laugh out

Taking a tour will maximise your time in the Lake District and also take you to places you would probably not find or know about on your own! We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit to the Lake District.

Yesterday our family throughly enjoyed an 8 Lakes tour with Tim. We enjoyed magnificent scenery and a very informative commentary from Tim, our tour guide. This was a wonderful way for our family to relax, enjoy the scenery and learn about the amazing sights we were seeing. Tim

We will pass your thanks on to Tim. He really enjoys taking people on tours in the Lake District and showing them hidden gems. Our small group sizes make us more flexible than the bigger buses to enable us to tweak the tour to match your interests.

Tim was right on time to pick us up. Very pleasant fellow but unfortunately the weather was not pleasant. He somehow managed to take us to every stop, advised us on photo opportunities and had an entertaining banter along the way.

Sadly the weather is something we have no control over and it can be very changeable in the Lakes. Having said that though there is still beauty to be seen even when it rains. Glad you enjoyed the tour.

This tour has been a highlight in our holiday. Our tour guide Tim took us to many scenic lookouts which we would never have found on our own and was very knowledgeable about the areas. Also it meant we could both enjoy the scenery without having to concentrate on navigating some

One of the big advantages of small group tours such as ours is that we all get to talk to each other. On bigger vehicles it is much harder to hold a conversation with the guide. It is really the best way for you to enjoy what you are seeing as you can easily ask questions and discuss things which hopefully makes the tour all the more interesting.
