Keeping in line with all previous five star reviews, the ten lakes tour of Windermere was pretty amazing. Our driver and guide Matthew picked me up right at my hotel doorstep, as planned and then we picked up the rest of the gang from the information centre. Matt, while driving us thru the countryside stopped in places for photos as... More

The weather had forced our hands, however; we were delighted to have taken this tour. If you want to avoid the hassle & stress of driving around the peeks, then we'd recommend this tour. The preceding days rains meant local knowledge and know how of driving is an asset though it's not essential. It's a skill driving through the peeks,... More

We visited quite a number of scenic spots with some time spent on an inclusive cruise trip on the lake. Since this is a one-day trip, we are only allowed to spend quite short time in each spot but this is understandable. The guide is knowledgeable and told us quite a lot of history around the places. The lakes are... More

We wanted scenic panoramas and the opportunity to visit specific places of cultural interest. Phil, our calm, confident, careful, informative driver delivered in full on all we had asked for and showed us far more besides, driving us along tortuous routes we would not have found for ourselves and in any case would not have dared to use. It was... More

Mountain Goat tours organized three day tours tailored to our specific needs and wishes. We, a group of 14 ladies, had an absolutely fantastic time. Both our driver/guides took us safely over the many passes, allowed ample time for walks, introduced us to original pubs and cafes, answered our questions patiently, pointed out the magnificent scenery, showed us all the...

Thanks first to Bob, our driver for the day, who had to keep us happy even though the rain didn't stop the whole day. The 10 Lakes tour is great as a sampler for the lakes, and has given us some ideas of where to visit when the rain stops!. Bob was knowledgeable and humorous, and drove comfortably and safely....
