The trip was very nice, and with good weather we enjoyed it even better.

Please no more. Thank you.
Doing what: 4-Day Lake District Discovery
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!
We missed the start time due to parking difficulties but the tour team swung into action and shipped us to a meet point with the tour adding the commentary we could have missed. A very good trip that showed the high passes of the Lake District to the best advantage, giving a very informative commentary on history and local knowledge of the area and adding stops with other enjoyable interest. An excellent day indeed!
Excellent driver, very knowledgeable. Some spectacular sights and the weather was relatively good
The upgrade to first class was worth it. Even it is just a day trip , you get a taste of Lake District. There plenty of time on each location as advertised on trip. David was an excellent driver and got us on time and safely from 1point to the other. The tea was good. The lake cruise was enjoyable.
Doing what: Lake District Rail Day Trip from London
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!
Spectacular! Should also do ten Lakes to see the diversity of the slake District. We had sunshine in mid-September.
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.
This tour is a fantastic way to see the Lake District. We had an exceptional tour guide/bus driver who knows his stuff. He was able to maneuver the tight corners of the tiny roads. He made many stops for pictures beautiful scenery and I could not have been more pleased. This tour is a great experience and must do.
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.
Amazing views coupled with a very knowledgeable guide made this an unforgettable tour. Despite the weather!
Fantastic tour ,driver / guide was great The roads are a bit hairy but with the experience of our driver we had no fear.
Chris exceptionally good guide. Beautiful country! Great food at this hotel.
My friend and I absolutely loved this little trip, when you don't have your own transport it was the perfect way to experience the lake district scenery which was breathtakingly beautiful. And the tour guide was very knowledgeable I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to explore this area.
Doing what: Best Beatrix Potter's Lakeland Tour
Lovely tour and boat trip. Super tour guide, Elliot. Full of humour, knowledge of the area and its history and interesting anecdotes. Great day!
Outstanding tour. The best in the Lake District. Highly recommend.
Chris, Bob, and Tony were great drivers and guides. Four nights of very formal dining at Lindeth Howe House got a bit tedious. Otherwise, everything was fine. For the the Beatrix Potter tour, I suggest adding the Amrit Library in Ambleside.
