This is a great way to experience the Lake District - you visit/pass lots of attractions and views that you’d never know about otherwise! Our driver was great, giving us lots of historical information along the way, and there were lots of opportunities to get off the bus and take some pictures, as well as some stops to walk around the beautiful villages within the lakes. Would definitely recommend!!

We had a New Year all day trip. What a fantastic experience and a day was fabulous with a blue skies and sunshine. It was the best way to have a fantastic experience to visit Lake District. Our driver Pete was very informative, had plenty stopovers for most picturesque places, postcard worth views and coffee shops. We were absolutely safe with him driving upright, tight and narrow mountain roads. Absolutely made our day!!! Truly recommend to visit Lake District with Mountain Goat!!!

The Ten Lakes tour provided a nice overview of what the Lake District has to offer. Despite very rainy and windy weather, we were able to see everything on the itinerary. Kevin did a great job informing us about the history of the area. He also shared many interesting stories associated with people and places he talked about.
