Hi Andy, We are a group of 4 (Me, my wife and her parents )and my 20 months old daughter. We are planning to visit lake district on 29th Aug 2016 (arrive around 1PM at windermere) and leave for London on 31st Aug by evening train. Since we have under 2 age child with us I can not find any tours which will accommodate us for a day tour. We would really like to make the best of our time in lake district and explore this wonderful place as much as possible. we will be happy to join other people for day tour If that's possible. Could you please suggest me 1 day and 2 days private tour pricing. we are more interested in photo shots..scenic places..mountain views and lake trips..

Hi, we are a middle aged (mid-70s) couple from Australia visiting Scotland in July 2015. Our Scottish tour ends in Edinburgh evening of Fri 17th July and we need to be back in London by evening of Tue 21st July. If possible we would like a trip/tour of the Lake District in the intervening 3-4 days. We are interested in photo-shots, historic places and lake trips (not too much walking). What would you suggest? We'd go back to London by train. Thanks
