Book A Tour


A wonderful tour from the Lake District through Yorkshire to the city of York -  deep dales, romantic castles, market towns and waterfalls to finish in the magnificent city of York.


This private tour links two of the most beautiful areas of England and travels through the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are many scenic highlights on the drive through Wensleydale characterized by typical Dales scenery of moors, dry stone walls and fields dotted with barns and ancient trackways. The villages with their cobbled streets and market greens are a delight. Lunch can be taken in a traditional Yorkshire pub,the Black Sheep brewery or tea room along the way.

This is a full day tour and we aim to be in York by early to mid afternoon finishing at your hotel in York. We recommend spending at least one night in York and taking time to walk the walls, visit the Minster, shop or explore the hidden Snickleways of this medieval city in more detail. The tour can also be taken in reverse with a pick up from your hotel in York, and finishing at your hotel in the Lake District. We can assist with any sightseeing requirements in York and if you wish to extend your tour to Edinburgh, Yorkshire and beyond we are happy to discuss what is possible and what is best for you. York is also a convenient departure point for trains to Edinburgh or London and this tour makes a convenient one way transfer from the Lake District to fit in with an extended itinerary.

Why Lake District Tours?



Lake District Tours start with an unfair advantage. The Lake District is one of the most sublimely beautiful places I’ve seen.

Their service is attuned to the scenery. Rather than travelling in big impersonal coaches, it’s as if you’re being driven around by friends who’ve been looking forward to your visit so they can show you, and share with you, the special places they’ve come to love.

After five memorable and varied weeks overseas, we’re telling family and friends how the Lake District tour was the highlight.

 Thanks again – Don & Judy Lipscombe

thank you very much for the great day out!!

Lake District is an amazing place, and am sure we will be returning there at some point :-) 

The tour was well organised....and your extra service of finding way with the delayed train especially appreciated.

Thank you once again!
