Great tour, experienced guide. It takes you beyond the usual touristic spots. Definitely worth the price paid.
Lovely scenery, a lot of sitting

Had no idea what to expect on this tour and was blown away by the beauty of the lake district. We drove a lot as the lake district is quite a ways out of Manchester and we even stayed on the bus through many places I would have loved to stop. I felt as though we didn't have much time to explore off the bus or we stopped in places where I felt as though we didn't need as much time. Overall a great 10 hours of sightseeing nature's beauty.
Breathtaking sceneries

A very relaxing tour around the Lake District visiting a lot of different places. The scenery is beautiful and relaxing. Tour leader was really friendly and customed the stops to the group that we were. The group is limited as well so easy to agree and feel as a family. The tour also includes a boat trip. Really enjoyed the day and will do it again in the future.
A very pleasant experience.

A great day at the Lake District, especially with our excellent driver Mike, was up to expectations and even more.
Beautiful trip, better than expected, with a very kind guide

The journey takes place in a comfortable minivan (15 people). The guide (in my case a very kind woman) made everyone comfortable and helped with suggestions as much as she could. The trip stops at many different points along the way to Windermere. The house of Beatrix Potter is shown only from the bus, but it is not a big problem - you can take some beautiful photos of it also from the bus). The stop at Wordsworth school is a treat - the visit at the school (2.50 pounds) is optional but I suggest to do it. You are given free time at this point, for lunch. The village is very pictoresque and worth walking around it (it is very small). There is a country church and churchyard right next to the school that is worth visiting (even if it will take away all the time for lunch). Other stops along the way are really nice (very beautiful landscapes). Maybe the most disappointing part is the Lake Windermere cruise: you just go by boat from a dock to another of the lake in 20 minutes. The landscape isn't that special and I guess that time could be better used to see other places (or views). Overall a highly recommended trip.
