The tour was well worthwhile. Amazing scenery and Beatrix Potters House is a must see. Tour bus could have had better air con and an integrated sound system and guide could have been more enthusiastic
I wish I could have rated the tour and the hotel separately. The hotel was wonderful. The staff was very polite and attentive. The food at the award-winning restaurant inside the hotel was top notch.
The tour was a waste of time. We did not even stop at The Roman Fort, which was what we were looking forward to the most and the reason we took this tour (this even makes me angry when I think about it). WE COULD NOT EVEN SEE IT FROM A DISTANCE BECAUSE OF THE FOG. We were running behind schedule and the tour guide wanted to make sure we did not miss the train. The steam train ride was not very interesting. Muncaster Castle was only average. We paid the 3 GBP per person extra to go inside the castle. Only a small portion of it was opened to the public and it was not worth it. Moreover, no photos are allowed inside which makes it even more forgettable.
FYI- the reason we were running behind schedule was because the tour guide was suppose to pick us up from the train station when we arrived to go directly on the tour. However, the tour company sent us both a taxi to take us to the hotel and the tour guide. The taxi arrived first. We protested to the taxi driver and even had him drive down to the tour office and they even confirmed we were suppose to go with the taxi to the hotel. So in the meantime the tour guide along with his van full of tourists waited for us at the train station for 20 minutes while we were waiting at the hotel. Finally they had to get another taxi to drive us to the tour van.
Had a good trip with Jim. He was informative, easy-going and kept the group on track easily. Liked what he took us to see, talked about and the little walk he included.
Excellent itinerary spoiled by poor a-c in bus on very hot day. Very knowledgeable guide.
Not much to see. The boat trip is not a cruise but it's like a shuttle boat droping people off along the way.
This tour is well worthwhile and was thoroughly enjoyable. The two tour companies involved in this trip organised everything very well. Evans and Evans made the train journey very easy and we somehow ended up with first class train tickets and Mountain Goat the tour company who met us when we got off the train were fantastic. We had an awesome guide and the whole day was fantastic. Definitely recommend this tour as the scenary and itinerary are fantastic. Beatrix Potter's house a must for anyone interested in Peter Rabbit.
An outstanding experience. Far better than I had expected. Magical! Thank you.
Tour most enjoyable and the guide very informative
We did think the guide could have a made good use of a microphone.
I went on the trip with my mother and she really enjoyed it. Our guide was really nice and informative. We didn't go into Hilltop but the garden was good enough for me, and mum went into the Beatrix Potter Gallery in the village we stopped in. It is a good way to see a bit more of the Lake District if you don't have a car.
I have already sent you a separate E-Mail to which I didn't get a reply. I stated that the trip was fine apart from the fact that we didn't get our lake cruise, the lake was too windy apparently. This was approx my twentieth trip with Viator and like all the others very good, Obviously you can't be blamed for them cancelling a lake cruise.
Our tour guide Bob was very pleasant and knowledgeable. We appreciated his willingness to answer questions and share information.
Going to Hawkshead and seeing Hill Top Farm was a good experience. However, We felt the boat trip on Coniston Lake was a waste of time since people were crowded onto the boat and the acoustics were so poor. We could not hear a word the boat guide was saying. That was a disappointment. The audio equipment needs to be improved and fewer people should be on the boat.
On the whole I think the only thing really provided was transportation to the sites.
Very disappointed paid for a three day tour and only received 1 day as the tour operator forgot to pick me up on two occasions I will not be using your service again
Tour was very good . the driver cum tour guide was excellent ,
This was an easy way to see the Lake District for a quick, first glance. We know we want to go back now! The person who met us at the Easton Station and gave us our tickets was very informative, and the guide on the tour (we went in a mini bus because there was overflow ) was very informative on the area and very entertaining. I would give this trip an A.
Fantastic! Every aspect of this trip was great - from journey, boat trip to tour around Beatrix Potter's home - brill! Would definitely recommend this. Seemed to fit a myriad of wonders in to the few hours given - but didn't feel at all rushed! Super!
