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.

I have used Viator for a few years and have always been pleased with the level of service. I have recommended your website to other people, and they have had equally excellent results from your company. Thanks for all you do.

We loved the beauty of the lake tour, and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a great time. We were happy it did not rain!

A great tour. Went to small villages and along roads that I did not have on my map, so saw lots you would not normally see. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable on geography but did not really seam very interested in Beatrix Potter except for going to Hilltop Farm. Still a great trip, but you may be a little disappointed if wanting more Beatrix Potter and Miss Potter film locations pointed out to you. The company changed the day of our trip with out any hassles and picked us up and dropped us off at our B and B.

Very beautiful tour. Guide was a little difficult to understand. Not sure if this was due to mumbling or the quality of the sound system. Bus was late due to train problems but there did not seem to be any contingency for this.

Very enjoyable. Knowledgable and pleasant driver Peter made the tour interesting and easy. Nice length of time for that tour. Would like to have had a little more time in the village to see related buildings. You can't go wrong choosing this tour.

Most enjoyable tour--
Was longer than I thought it would be.
Worth the cost.
Don't bother going into Potter's cottage.
Beatrix Potter Gallery in Hawkshead is worth the time and nominal cost.

The tour was great! Our tour guide was friendly and informative. I would have appreciated a bit more time at Hilltop and Hawkshead, instead of the Coniston Water Cruise, but otherwise - wonderful.

Did the tour in winter which meant the itinerary was changed. No mention of this when booking, but cruise on different lake and Beatrix potter house not open. It was still a good tour but wish I knew the real itinerary before hand as I ended up repeating other things I had done. Some amazing country

TOny was excellent. He did the best with what he had. Unfortunately Hill top and the Beatrix potter galleries were both closed on the day we toured (They are closed every Friday). We would have changed for the ten lakes, high mountain for Friday and done Beatrix Potter on Sat or Sunday since we did three different trips with Viator

I went on the trip with my mother and she really enjoyed it. Our guide was really nice and informative. We didn't go into Hilltop but the garden was good enough for me, and mum went into the Beatrix Potter Gallery in the village we stopped in. It is a good way to see a bit more of the Lake District if you don't have a car.

This was a very enjoyable tour, despite the early rain. The information given by our driver was really interesting, and helpful for those of us who had only that one day in the Lake District. The visit to Hill Top Cottage was diminished somewhat by the large crowd. I would recommend the tour to potential visitors to the UK.

Good trip in spite of the weather. Guide was helpful in several ways but a bit thin at times on information.

A lovely short tour with some very pretty stops. We greatly appreciated the hotel pick-up in Ambleside. We were slightly disappointed to miss out on our pre-paid cream tea due to the time constraints imposed by a lengthy wait for serveral "no-shows" who were meant to be waiting at the Windemere train station. This is such a beautiful area, I would recommend an all day tour if time permits, but if not, this "capsule" tour is a good choice.

Very nice tour taking you to most of Beatrix's sites, but unfortunately you have to pay extra for a lot of things--her house, the gallery--and do them in your own time.

Our tour was impacted by the terrible rain we had so a lot of the tour was somewhat washed out, even though they did cover everything they promised, it was quite disappointing for a few reasons. The tour director we had did not have a working microphone so if you were not sitting up front with him you could not hear the limited commentary he did supply. We took a boat cruise on lake Coniston, it was so foggy and raining, you could not see anything. In good weather this would have been a very good tour and while the weather was terrible the tour guide did not contribute much to this day. I do think they are a good company because they did cover all of the lakes thoroughly but certainly the guides need a louder microphone and when the weather is not conducive they should offer a different day or a money back offer.

Trip to Beatrix Potter's was good, but I wish we had a chance to have some decent food on the way. The restaurant we stopped was a cafeteria next to or in the shoe store! There were many other options I believe.
