A wonderful day. Everything ran like clockwork. The guide was interesting and knowledgeable. Trains on time. Plenty to see and do. Just wish it had lasted longer. A wonderful 'taster' of the area.
A rewarding trip covering the key scenic viewpoints.
We loved the beauty of the lake tour, and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a great time. We were happy it did not rain!
The tour was fantastic, and I would definitely do this again; however, I feel the company was disorganized and, although extremely helpful, made a few mistakes that were to do with organization. The employers, I felt, were not altogether behind their company. The accommodation was wonderful, but the communication about where and when the tour was to start was confusing. However, the company management accepted responsibility immediately for the mistakes and was quick to rectify them.

Doing what: 3-Day Lake District Discovery
All arrangements as promised - great hotel and food, friendly staff. Will definitely book another trip with this company.
Well organized, enjoyed the scenic drive through the Langdales valley, the scenery along the river cruise is breathtaking & the afternoon tea is so relaxing & fantastic.
Very nice tour taking you to most of Beatrix's sites, but unfortunately you have to pay extra for a lot of things--her house, the gallery--and do them in your own time.
Absolutely fantastic! The train was at a good time, not too early, allowing for a good arrival time in Oxenholme at 10am. We were picked up at the station and taken to the mini bus. We saw a lot of the Lake District and also had plenty of free time. A lot was included in this tour, more than the other people on the tour who had booked elsewhere. Included was entry into the World of Beatrix Potter, Hill Top and an afternoon tea, whereas others had to pay extra. The tour was long enough to see plenty of the lakes without being too long a day. Definitely recommend this tour to all ages. Well worth it!
We were lucky to have a nice sunny day, and the whole tour was very worthwhile. Loved Beatrix Potter's house "Hilltop" and found the countryside enchanting. A lovely day.
Well organized,tour leader excellent.
The perfect tour for the Lake District. Slow paced and interesting, I give this one VERY high marks!
A great tour. Went to small villages and along roads that I did not have on my map, so saw lots you would not normally see. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable on geography but did not really seam very interested in Beatrix Potter except for going to Hilltop Farm. Still a great trip, but you may be a little disappointed if wanting more Beatrix Potter and Miss Potter film locations pointed out to you. The company changed the day of our trip with out any hassles and picked us up and dropped us off at our B and B.
Our tour was impacted by the terrible rain we had so a lot of the tour was somewhat washed out, even though they did cover everything they promised, it was quite disappointing for a few reasons. The tour director we had did not have a working microphone so if you were not sitting up front with him you could not hear the limited commentary he did supply. We took a boat cruise on lake Coniston, it was so foggy and raining, you could not see anything. In good weather this would have been a very good tour and while the weather was terrible the tour guide did not contribute much to this day. I do think they are a good company because they did cover all of the lakes thoroughly but certainly the guides need a louder microphone and when the weather is not conducive they should offer a different day or a money back offer.
