Dave was a wonderful tour guide and driver! Hugely knowledgeable, funny and wonderful driving skills! We really enjoyed our tour around the beautiful Lake District national park, which was made all the more special by Dave’s cheery manner, fascinating insights, and wonderful photography skills! The tour involves navigating some tricky roads, but Dave handled them with real aplomb. Would really recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience some of the Lake District’s most beautiful scenery, alongside some cheerful commentary. The tour was very well structured with plenty of comfort breaks, and a nice long stop in Keswick for lunch. We were picked up and returned to our hotel exactly on time! Thanks again, Dave, we had a great time! :)

We were staying in Bowness and we were picked up from our accommodation. We had pre-booked the tour to give us a greater insight of all the lakes in the region. Small group and bus were clean and comfortable. Our guide Jim was both very informative and entertaining with great insight into the Lakes history, geography and geology. The weather was less than perfect but to be honest this is a perfect time to do the tour as this tour is not weather reliant and did not take away from our enjoyment. We visited many lakes and had a lunch stop in Keswick. There is much more to see other than Lake Windemere and I found the tour very enjoyable and gave me a far better insight into the region.

We had a brilliant day on the Ten Lakes tour. Gerry, our driver/guide clearly enjoys his job, and is very good at it. He shared with us his wealth of local knowledge, good humour, and excellent driving skills. Also, the administration at Mountain Goat were very helpful, answering my queries promptly and effectively. Would highly recommend.

I was on a weekend in the Lakes as a sole traveller, so decided to do this full day tour rather than travel around on my own. I'm so glad that I did it. It was a wonderful experience and the places we passed and stopped at were amazing. I could never have done this alone and picked up on all of the interesting facts about the areas that our driver Peter told us. He was an excellent guide, so knowledgeable and friendly. I hope to do some more of these tours in the near future, I couldn't recommend it enough. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Peter was lovely and full of little tid bits about every lake we saw. We felt that money well spent.
