Optez pour un surclassement et voyagez avec style grâce à un billet de train en première classe.
I had to wait for 2 hours approx to start the tour. Called up agent but was communicated that agent is coming but the person came after 2 hours. There is no professionalism in the people operating the tour
An extremely well organized tour - all aspects of this tour occurred with clockwork precision. The travel in the Lake District was provided by Mountain Goat Tours with our guide having excellent knowledge of all aspects of the history, culture, geography and life style of the Lake District and the part Beatrix Potter played in that history. A great day.
Booked first class rail on Saturday. Breakfast -sandwich??, dinner Muffin and cup of tea, no wine??. Comment from Virgin train staff - first class is 'rusbbish' on the weekends' At least in first class we were away from the drunks in stanard class.This train is the London to Glasgow and return so shall we say a wide range of travellers
As for the tour - Mountain Goat Tours, Peter our guide was execellent, very knowledgable, took us to all the key locations, lake cruise was good. Would recommend Mountain Goat tour, suggest do first class rail but not on weekends.
I could not take the tour due to work reasons. Called to try and re-schedule and was told not possible. Said that I am happy to pay for my own train tickets and would only like to be taken around by the bus / coach once in Lake District and still told that was not possible. In the end, had to lose the entire amount paid for the tour without a minute of the tour. A
A wonderful day trip from London. Clear instructions were provided on the ticket emailed including where to meet a representative from the tour company at Euston Station. The representative was excellent outlining the day trip and what to expect. Upon arrival at Oxenholme railway station, we were met by Peter Fox our tour guide for the day. Peter was very polite, informative, obliging and an excellent driver. The highlights for me were Beatrix Potters home Hilltop, Hawkshead and the cruise on Lake Windermere. Peter ensured we were back in time at Oxenholme to meet our train back to London. A beautiful part of the UK and would highly recommend the tour if you have limited time to visit.
The Lake District is beautiful and a few days there would be fun. But if you do not have that time this tour is a great way to see it. It is very doable in a day. The guide was very nice and full of fun interesting information. I would recommed this tour.
The day in the Lake District was the highlight of my trip to England. Everything, from the train trips, being picked up and returned to the station, and the visit to Beatrix Potter's cottage, went without a glitch. It's a long day, but it was thoroughly enjoyable!
