Derek, very funny, informative and entertaining. Trip was very good too.
This tour is a fantastic way to see the Lake District. We had an exceptional tour guide/bus driver who knows his stuff. He was able to maneuver the tight corners of the tiny roads. He made many stops for pictures beautiful scenery and I could not have been more pleased. This tour is a great experience and must do.
Spectacular! Should also do ten Lakes to see the diversity of the slake District. We had sunshine in mid-September.
We missed the start time due to parking difficulties but the tour team swung into action and shipped us to a meet point with the tour adding the commentary we could have missed. A very good trip that showed the high passes of the Lake District to the best advantage, giving a very informative commentary on history and local knowledge of the area and adding stops with other enjoyable interest. An excellent day indeed!
Fantastic tour ,driver / guide was great The roads are a bit hairy but with the experience of our driver we had no fear.
The tour guide Elliot was informative and friendly. Was delighted with the tour. Thanks.
This was an outstanding and well balanced tour. We saw and experienced a lot of different things, with full marks going to our guide and driver for driving up and down the passes for a large part of the day. Amazing work.
A minor glitch with the microphone at the beginning but soon solved.
Would recommend it.
Very friendly and knowledgeable driver and guide including knowledge on ecology of the area, history, farming, buildings, sheep, etc. Very good driving - especially when having to maneuver or squeeze by oncoming traffic on the numerous single track roads with 2 way traffic. Really enjoyed how many sites we got to see on the tour and how far we went around the Lake District. We could never have seen as much or driven as far on our own. Tour is highly recommended especially if you don't have many days in the area or are first-time visitors to Cumbria.
Amazing day, very knowledgeable driver/guide called Peter, you see different angles /aspects of the Lake District, highly enjoyable, breathtaking views, enjoyable ride in steam train- a fun filled day.I was not aware of the passage of time, incredible experience.
Welcoming, friendly and knowledgebale tour guides. This tour allows you you see the countryside, small villages and history. I enjoyed the option to either be picked up or meet at the main location.
the high adventure trip was superb 1310 ft high not for the faint hearted,
tour driver was excellent friendly and great bloke
all in all we thought it was good value for money for a whole day trip around the lakes and trip to muncaster castle
A most enjoyable day. The driver/guide was most informativend helpful
Our tour company from Windemere picked us up on time. Peter was a very professional guide. Very accommodating to our needs, informative, and, considering the roads on the mountain tour, a safe, efficient driver. We had a flat tire which he handled well, listened to us, and completed the tour. He was spot on in his assessment of our lunch stop. This was very much a highlight of our two weeks in UK.
And, I think viator's customer service was wicked good-phone calls were promptly answered by humans, help was pleasantly offered, and the information was accurate.
Two reasons above for us to highly recommend viator, and consider it for ourselves, in the future.
What a beautiful part of England. Just wished we had more time to explore. The tour was amazing and we just loved it.
The tour was excellent and our driver Mike was outstanding he made the tour more interesting and was professional guide
This was my most spectacular trip yet. In nearly a year of travelling I found this trip to be the best. The scenery was amazing. Every corner turned meant a new vista that was breathtaking. I highly recommend this trip. The Mountain Goat driver was very nice and an excellent driver, on some quite hairy roads! If you only do one trip in the Lake District, then I recommend you do this one.
The day was amazing - a mix of minibus, steam train and the castle, with stunning scenery. The weather on the day we went, was warm and sunny, Tony the driver was informative and amusing. Unfortunately we didn't have time for the tea and biscuits as the train was due to leave when we got there, but would still highly recommend this tour to anybody. The castle grounds were beautiful and the owl show was great! Would not hesitate to book another tour with this company.
The high mountain adventure was exiciting. Though the weather was not very good, the scenery was great! And the introduction by the tour guide Tony (I am not sure if I have mistaken his name) was comprehensive. This gave me a sight of another aspect of lake districts. Highly recommended!
The trip was good and adventurous, but the weather is very critical at the lakes. our driver and guide (Mike) is an exceptional person. He knows the place, it's history and most of all he is very polite, conservative and his English is very good most especially for the foreigners.
