David is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about this beautiful region. The tour is a perfect length and good pace. David will take you to see some of the best views with excellent photo opportunities, and you will learn about the history and hear stories the lakes and fells along the way. Ideal for newcomers like ourselves, or those who have already discovered the area and are returning for more. At the beginning of your stay, it will provide you with ideas on where to explore further, or at the end it will give you an incentive to return, we certainly will be back. Thank you David.

Our Driver David is what made the tour. His knowledge is excellent and you can tell he loves the area. We went to places we never would have know existed had it not been for David. We stopped at some amazing picturesque viewing points that just take your breath away. I can highly recommend this tour.

An absolutely brilliant private tour. The knowledge and friendliness of our guide David was second to none. We loved learning the history of the area and nothing was too much trouble going out of his way to show us the best photo opportunity. Would highly recommend to anyone.

A great tour, thoroughly worth the money. David was punctual, friendly and so knowledgeable on the whole Lake District region. He kindly adapted our tour to suit our needs. We had a brilliant day and saw so many interesting places and fantastic views that we would never have experienced.

Amazing day out! David was a great guide, very knowledgeable but also friendly and funny. Been to places we would never have seen or found. He took us to great parts of the lakes that we all loved and kept the kids also very much interested. Highly recommend this private tour. Thank you David
