Arranging a meeting point can be confusing. You must be familiar with Euston station and initiative and very specific which ticket counter office they ( Local tour operator) meant. I had to stress to them was it the Euston station ticket office or the Virgin ticket office ?

Luckily it worked out fine and we were only a small group, hopped on the train followed their instructions and we were off to the magical Lake districts. Highly recommended. If I were to do it again, I'd stay at least 2-3 nights.

Great day all round.

We were confused about the itinerary of the tour, thinking we would see Wordsworth's.

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.

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.

This is a very long day, but very worthwhile. Very well organised with pick up and return at Lakes District Railway. Train trip from London was efficient and comfortable. A great way to see a beautiful part of England in a day.

Obviously the Lake District is not a place that one can fully appreciate in less than a day, but this trip was a very nice first encounter with that beautiful region. Everything went very smoothly the trains arrived on time, the guide was friendly and competent, and even the weather was pleasant most of the time. It's a pity that there was not enough time to simply explore the surroundings at a slow pace and find better spots for taking pictures, but as I said, there is not much one can do in a few hours. Highly recommended!

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.
