This is not a trip to be missed. Out of London, amazing countryside. David the tour guide was so knowledgeable and gave me lots of information on the district and Beatrix Potter. Thoroughly enjoyable and I would go again.

An excellent day spent with David, our super knowledgeable and personable tour guide. We got to see so many fantastic places on our tour of the lakes, with & in depth commentary along the way, the time just flew by ! Could not recommend this tour highly enough. On our next visit we intend booking David for a walking tour.

Despite living in England for over 25 years, my husband and I had never visited the Lake District. David prepared a phenomenal tour giving us a broad and interesting overview of the area. He was knowledgable, punctual, friendly and accommodating. We will certainly be back to further explore this breathtakingly beautiful part of the country. And it will not take us 25 years to return! Thank you David for a wonderful and memorable day.
