Just completed a great day around the lakes of this district with an informed, entertaining and complex tour by this company.
Thanks Derek. Your knowledge and expertise made the tour very enjoyable despite the narrow roads, silly drivers and walkers who have little care for their safety.
The narrow roads and the complexity of the travel required to visit all the lakes added to the need to have such an experienced guide as Derek.
Thanks for the tour!

My wife and I took the Ten Lakes Spectacular tour and were most impressed. The mini coaches used are very comfortable with the seating high enough to give great views. As someone who has visited the lakes often but always as the driver I found the experience great and saw much more of the beautiful scenery. The tour included a 50 minute cruise around Derwentwater and frequent stops for photography, comfort stops and lunch. An extra touch is the pickup and drop off at hotels and guest houses around the Windermere and Bowness area. A fantastic day out which will leave lasting memories.

Had a wonderful time on this tour with the friendly and knowledgeable Ian, despite the best efforts of the English weather.
The scenery was spectacular, and we covered a big area of the Lake District, seeing, as promised, 10 lakes and many other lovely sights. Highly recommend this tour.

This High Adventure tour is quite boring. I had been on Ten Lakes tour that is far more better and driver also was very good. At the end of our High Adventure Tour we cleared all our rubbish. But Driver(African Origin) asked my wife "did you clear your rubbish?" She said "yes." But the Driver told his friend to go and check again! His friend checked our seat and said "yes there is nothing." Then the driver let go out my wife and son. I was not really happy but I had not enough time to argue with him. Anyway there is not much to see on this tour.
