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.
Really enjoyed this tour, it was everything I imagined and more. Great tour guide and information, beautiful weather and scenery. Thanks so much!
This was a great tour. It would not be possible to see and do so much doing a self drive. Good value.
This was fabulous tour taking in so much in regards to beatrix potter... it was the driver/guide first tour and he did a great job!

Fantastic tour! Our tour guide was amazing, picked us up right on time at our B and B which was so helpful since we had no car on this trip. He took us to several spots for photo ops which were breathtaking before we even got to Hill Top. The ability to be taken right to the front of the line at Hill Top and straight in was very convenient. The drive to our boat ride was gorgeous and I really enjoyed being able to get on the lake and see the lush scenery from the water. Again, our tour guide kept us on track, on schedule and showed us a terrific amount of places, my camera was overflowing with photos! So glad I was able to add this to our Lake District visit, very convenient, comfortable, relaxing and affordable.
Very enjoyable, great driver- skilful driving down narrow lanes, good knowledge, friendly and interesting.
Beatrix Potter's house amazing, being able to wander around and closely examine everything.
I took the Beatrix Potter's Lakeland Tour with driver Chris on Saturday 9th August 2014. Chris was a most interesting and informative guide and the trip was most enjoyable.
The tour staff was friendly and helpful. The scenery in the Lake District is both rugged and peaceful. I especially enjoyed the drive from Hilltop Farm to Coniston Water. The guide was able to provide just the right amount of information about the history and place names to give a perspective. It was interesting to learn about Ms. Potter's agricultural acumen. But in the Lake District, it is definitely the scenery that is the star of the tour. This is a place I want to return to and spend more time in.
This tour was spectacular! Our guide, Derek, was so knowledgable about the region! He gave us plenty of picture opportunities and even took pictures of us. The lakes were gorgeous and the scenery was beautiful. Fantastic tour!
This tour went above and beyond my expectations! Our tour guide, Peter, was friendly and knowledgeable. I was lucky to have perfect weather on my tour which made the experience all the better! I didn't think I would see as much as I got to see with a half-day tour, but they pack a lot into that time. I was very happy to get to see Wray Castle as well as Yew Tree Farm which was featured as Hill Top in "Miss Potter". The whole tour was phenomenal and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
An excellent tor and great value for money. Chris our guide and driver was both very informative and very obliging. All in all a tremendous experience. I would have no hesitation recommending this tour.
Loved it all, packed in a lot of sights in short time
Beatrix Potter's Lakeland Tour was one of the best tours we took on our triip to England and Scotland. The driver/tour guide was so nice and knew so much and took us to so many places around the lake district. What a beautiful place even in the drizzley rain. If you are anywhere near the Lake District for a holiday you must, must, must take this tour.
Very informative and we had a good afternoon tea arranged by the tour director. Fortunately we had this tour to bring us to the various tourist attractions, going to these places on our own is almost unthinkable. The tour director is extremely familiar with the best photo stops to get the best views
Very enjoyable indeed. Driver was very helpful and polite. Will use this company again. Highly recommended
Excellent trip, guide/driver was superb, his local knowledge was superb, nothing was too much trouble.
Had a good trip with Jim. He was informative, easy-going and kept the group on track easily. Liked what he took us to see, talked about and the little walk he included.
Fantastic! Every aspect of this trip was great - from journey, boat trip to tour around Beatrix Potter's home - brill! Would definitely recommend this. Seemed to fit a myriad of wonders in to the few hours given - but didn't feel at all rushed! Super!
Loved the tour, guide was super, very informative, tour . Vans need air condtioning and decent sound systems, people at the back could not hear or get fresh air.
An excellent excursion and a very good guide. I really enjoyed the afternoon visit to the Beatrix Potter House, the cruise on the lake and the visits to the beautiful villages. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable about the Lakes District.
I enjoyed the tour immensely. Mountain Goat provided a wonderful service, with a driverguide whos' knowledge of the Lakes District reflected many years of personal experience and a genuine affection for the area. The trip included many highlights within a remakably convenient perid of time, and all connected by drives through scenic countryside and picturesque villages. A delight from beginning to end. Thank you.
Fantastic! The bus was excellent and the ride superb. The detailed knowledge of the area by our driver and guide made the day for us. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and would make a hasty return.
