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.
Itinerary was well planned and thoroughly enjoyable. Tour Guide was professional and knowledgeable.
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!
Our tour guide, Peter Fox, could not have been more pleasant and enjoyable.
I travelled to Lake District on the 29th July. Someone from the agency waited for me in the train station and handed me the train tickets to and from Oxenholme. There, a very friendly guide was waiting for me in the station. She drove to other locations to gather everyone from the group, which had 10 people. We covered everything listed in the trip details, and the guide was amazing, she had impressive knowledge on the area and the people. The landscapes were breathtaking, so I would strongly encourage you to take this tour.
This was a great tour! But not because the guide was good because he was not, I am use to learning many interesting facts he really had none to share? The coach had no air conditioning either. We were just lucky that the countryside was so beautiful and the towns so charming!
Great tour by Peter Fox. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and adept at getting us around the area without a hitch. The boat ride and the cream tea were nice features. It was a fabulous way to see this region in one day and still get back to London.
Highly recommend this tour! Peter was a great tour guide. I went in April and the weather and area was enjoyable. Not overly crowded or cold! If you're worried about taking a train to and from London... 3 hours really goes by fast on the Virgin trains.
The upgrade to first class was worth it. Even it is just a day trip , you get a taste of Lake District. There plenty of time on each location as advertised on trip. David was an excellent driver and got us on time and safely from 1point to the other. The tea was good. The lake cruise was enjoyable.
The Lake District Day Trip was a wonderful experience.
We loved getting to see Beatrix Potter's home, but the rest of the Lake District was also wonderful.
Having afternoon tea at the hotel was a wonderful experience.
What a beautiful area!
This was wonderful! We were met at the station and given our tickets and then relaxed on the train to the Lakes District. Leaving the train we were met by our guide and spent a lovely day! Our guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out many interesting sights along the way. I loved our time in Ambleside, particularly the old school which our guide had recommended we go to...Wonderful, wonderful day and it was one of my sons favourite days on our holiday! He is 6
Arranging a meeting point can be confusing. You must be familiar with Euston station and initiative and very specific which ticket counter office they ( Local tour operator) meant. I had to stress to them was it the Euston station ticket office or the Virgin ticket office ?
Luckily it worked out fine and we were only a small group, hopped on the train followed their instructions and we were off to the magical Lake districts. Highly recommended. If I were to do it again, I'd stay at least 2-3 nights.
Great day all round.
A great way to get a taste of the lake district in one day
Great trip. Saw a lot. Well timed. Enjoyed the comments from the driver. I would definitely take another trip with Viator.
We were confused about the itinerary of the tour, thinking we would see Wordsworth's.

This tour is well worthwhile and was thoroughly enjoyable. The two tour companies involved in this trip organised everything very well. Evans and Evans made the train journey very easy and we somehow ended up with first class train tickets and Mountain Goat the tour company who met us when we got off the train were fantastic. We had an awesome guide and the whole day was fantastic. Definitely recommend this tour as the scenary and itinerary are fantastic. Beatrix Potter's house a must for anyone interested in Peter Rabbit.
Tour most enjoyable and the guide very informative
We did think the guide could have a made good use of a microphone.

This was an easy way to see the Lake District for a quick, first glance. We know we want to go back now! The person who met us at the Easton Station and gave us our tickets was very informative, and the guide on the tour (we went in a mini bus because there was overflow ) was very informative on the area and very entertaining. I would give this trip an A.

This is a very long day, but very worthwhile. Very well organised with pick up and return at Lakes District Railway. Train trip from London was efficient and comfortable. A great way to see a beautiful part of England in a day.
Obviously the Lake District is not a place that one can fully appreciate in less than a day, but this trip was a very nice first encounter with that beautiful region. Everything went very smoothly the trains arrived on time, the guide was friendly and competent, and even the weather was pleasant most of the time. It's a pity that there was not enough time to simply explore the surroundings at a slow pace and find better spots for taking pictures, but as I said, there is not much one can do in a few hours. Highly recommended!
Loved the tour, guide really made the trip, very nice man.
