Had such a wonderful time exploring the beautiful Lake District by minibus. This tour is perfect for two travellers visiting the area by train for an extended weekend - would happily return to Windermere even just for another tour. The planned route was partly closed (only seeing one or two lakes in the end), but we ended up going on a customised tour of various tarns, viewpoints and villages - with plenty of local knowledge from our friendly and welcoming tour guide. Would highly recommend!

Amazing views and locations. Tony was very helpful in providing alternative routes and locations (due to road closure) and providing insights on various locations we visited and passed by.

An excellent half day adventure (10am-2pm) which explored some of the most beautiful areas of the Lake District. Our tour guide, Tony, was superb and made it a wholly enjoyable experience.
