It was excellent. Peter arrived at the hotel exactly on time to collect us. It was a shame that we were the last pickup, as my two American friends, who are elderly, had to sit on the left of the coach in single seats. They would have preferred sitting together. Peter's knowledge of the area was really good, and he was a relaxing and very pleasant guide. The only caveat is that I thought a sandwich lunch was included in the tour. We had sandwiches in Keswick, and Peter made a special effort to drop us closer to the cafe, as my friends couldn't walk very easily. He also collected us just before everyone else, which we very much appreciated. The tour was brilliant for visitors who don't have much time in the Lakes. It really does cover an amazing amount of the area, and we were lucky with a beautiful day, so it was really delightful. And Peter couldn't have been more accomodating as our guide. We enjoyed it all hugely, and I was thrilled that my two friends saw so much of this exquisite area. They particularly enjoyed the boat trip on Derwentwater.
It was spectacular. As some one new to area I would have struggled to choose where to start. This was brilliant.
Bob was great; he was very kind and knowledgable; I can advise this tour to everybody !
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.
Last time I came to the LD, we had a car so we could get around, but we missed some of the incredible views that we saw on this tour. I highly reccomend ths tour to new and frequent visitors.
Very good,enchanting, scenic and informative tour!!! Excellent host(Jim) and commentry!! All of us were taken care of really splendidly.
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!
Wonderful experience. Driver/tour guide was very informative and familiar with the area and made the journey enjoyable. Good value for money
Excellent visitor experience. As an amateur photographer, I would want to have a few more photo stops, particularly at the points where the panoramic scenery was so beautiful from the tour bus.
Well worthwhile and well planned. Boat trip was an excellent break from travelling by road. Good weather helped!
Really enjoyed this trip. A very comprehensive tour of many of the lakes in the Lake District. The driver was excellent, a mine of information.
An excellent day. The driver helped make it more special (TONY) he cheered us up on a very very wet day.I don't think we have ever seen so much rain. However we loved the trip thank you.
The ideal way to see the area, good informed information from the driver, photographers considered e.g. stopping at beauty spots.
An excellent trip with a very informative guide. An excellent driver. Fantastic scenery - just a shame about the weather! Thank you.
We have taken many Viator tours in the past, all of which we have enjoyed, but this one would be one of the very best. The tour guide, Peter Walker, was exceptional because of his extensive knowledge of the area and his personal approach to ensure we enjoyed every minute. The day was long but it was worth getting up very early for the three hour plus train trip to Windermere where Peter was waiting right outside the station. We highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I took this tour on our 9th wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the breathtaking mountain views and lake cruise. Our tour guide was knowlegleable, personable, and went out of his way to make our tour enjoyable. I would recommend this tour to anyone in a heartbeat!
We saw some beautiful country on this trip. Our guide was interesting and informative. Our boat ride on one of the lakes was relaxing. We would definitely recommend this tour.
