It was spectacular. As some one new to area I would have struggled to choose where to start. This was brilliant.

It was unfortunate that we met with a whole day of rain and wind. Even with the rain and strong wind, the scenery was beautiful. Going to these places without the tour and coach is unthinkable. The tour director was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and he knew the best stops for photo taking.

The tour guide is very friendly and well prepared.
We have enough time to stay in each sightseeing spot.

The ten lakes tour was a happy trip. It gave me enough time to see the lake via cruise. The customer service of the company was good.

We had a really memorable day out. The tour co were very accomodating in that our booked day had to be changed due to inclement weather on the original booking date.
From the moment we joined the tour, Jim entertained us with witty anecdotes and pertinent facts about the area we were treavelling through. We learnt much and were astounded by breathtaking scenes of natural beauty.The best of which had to be the views from Castlerigg Stone Circle. Particularly as the sun shone through the clouds casting light and shadows across the landscape giving it a special beauty. The day will live on in our memories helped by the lovely photos we have of the day.

Our guide was Jim and he was very knowledgeable about the area. We had a wonderful day even though the weather wasn't brilliant.
We were in the lake district without our car and needed to see the area. I am glad we left our car behind as we wouldn't have seen so much. Thanks Jim and viator

What a wonderful way to see the highlights of the Lake District! Our guide was interesting, informative and an excellent driver. Considering some of the narrow 'sheep paths' and hedge rows the driving is best left to this company! We only had two days in this area, but this tour made the best use of one, then we had the second to supplement the tour. A great dollar value!

This wonderful tour is perfect on a nice day. We were lucky with no rain and I would not drive and be able to see the wonderful views on winding, narrow and sometimes very steep roads. Take extra camera batteries, there are lots of picture opportunities.

Gorgeous, gorgeous scenery! I loved the passes, the meres, the slate mine, the boat ride on Ullswater! Our guide was so gregarious and knowledgeable. Because I am a language and literature major, I appreciated his explanation of the Viking origin of so many of the place names, the detour he asked our coach to take so I could see Wordsworth's house, even his explanation of the sorts of sheep we were seeing. The day flew by. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat!
