This tour was painfully boring. Eight hours of our tour guide droning on about the most useless facts ever. I am not exaggerating when I say I slept through 80% of the tour and only woke up when we actually got off the bus. There were a few really beautiful sights, but besides that it was too long.
I absolutely loved the tour! Even though the amounts of rain there had fallen and was falling, it still was amazing. The stunning views and Tony who has the most perfect voice while giving all the explanations. Listening to him while driving through the stunning scenary, really lets you dream off. Really worth to do, certainly when it is, like me, the first time travelling to the lake district :
You stop at beautiful scenary places and picture perfect stunning views
great trip, fantastic driver who was very knowledgeable and clearly enjoys what he did. Recommend it to anyone going to the Lake District who want to see lots of amazing viewpoints in a very short space of time!
This was an excellent tour, and a great way to see a lot of the Lake District in one day. There were plenty of photo stops, for an appropriate amount of time, and the guide was very interesting and entertaining to listen to. Definitely recommend this as a way to get a sense of the area.
Tour was good, tour guide quite knowledgeable, scenery was spectacular with great photo opportunities. The lunch break was just a bit too long and could be shortened.
Lovely, guide was very knowledgable and interesting!! Covered everything the tour was supposed to and more! Ample time at all stops!!
The tour was amazing. The tour guide, Jerry, was so knowledgeable about places we visited. He cared for everyone in the tour and never shows tiredness even at the end of the tour when we were so tired already.
THIS WAS AN EXCELLRNT AND BEAUTIFUL TOUR WHICH WE THOROUGHLY ENJOYED. OUR GUIDE /DRIVER WAS PLWASANT, HELPFUL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE AND DID EVERYTHING HE COULD TO MAKE OUR DAY AS MEMORABLE AS POSSIBLE. A FIRST RATE TOUR LED BY A FIRST RATE DRIVER/GUIDE. MANY THANKS FOR EVERYTHING
It was a wonderful day out. Lot of scenic beauty and lakes all around. The driver/guide nicely made us familiar with the area, folklore and legends.
Great full day tour for those who have limited time or don't know the area well. Our guide Lisa, was very knowledgeable and friendly. A long day, but a worthwhile trip - highly recommended.
Very nice tour for those who want to visit Lake District in one day. Driver/Guide Tony was very informed and helpful and stops were quite frequent and we had ample time to take pictures and relax in the beauty of the lakes. Five Star
Really good idea, however would have liked to have more time at the lakes getting out and taking photos. Long day sitting on a coach, driver was lovely, friendly and very knowledgeable. The boat trip over Ullswater was a lovely extra, with stunning sites. If you want the best views get a seat on the right side of the coach. Really lovely tour if you only have a few days. Wouldn't do it again however.
Loved this one! Beautiful country!
Excellent driver, very knowledgeable. Some spectacular sights and the weather was relatively good
Excellent tour! It gives a nice overview of 10 lakes and mountain passes also! Recommended also in cases you have only chance for one tour!
Absolutely all I expected!
Full size coach with about 25 people. Local provider was Highlands Explorer Tours. Driver Tony and guide Grant were excellent. Both shared commentary. Tremendous amount of sites and fun were packed into a 12 hour long, but great day. Ted D.
Wonderful scenery especially the Secret View - truly magnificent tour of the lakes. Bob the driver was good and pointed out all the highlights. Easy pickup from the bus stop really close to our hotel. Wonderful trip on one of the lakes on a boat.
My tour was with Elliot and he was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. He didn't over chat. Plenty of stops for photos and to explore towns. The bus was small and he cleaned the windows while we were out exploring to make sure we all got a clear and clean view from where we were sitting. Very careful driver in those country narrow roads. Highly recommended!
I really enjoyed this tour. I booked the 10 lakes tour for the summer bank holiday Monday and really had fun. Our guide, Phil, was knowledgeable and kind, took good care of us and was very patient with the extra talkative people. The weather was kind to us most of the day, so the our finished with rain, not the tours fault. Phil went the extra mile and made sure that I got to my train on time and gave recommendations on where I could grab dinner to take with me on the train. The only reason why this is 4/5 stars was the legroom. I have long legs and they were shoved into the back of the seat in front of me for hours - major bummer and my knees were killing me on the walk to the train station. If you have long legs, make sure you get there early to get the first row of seating in the van, the leg room is better there.
Saw lots, guide informative, but not overly enthusiastic about what we were told.
The tour was very informative and interesting. We stopped in many nice places on the way. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. A bit more time for lunch would have been better we only had about 40 minutes.
