Testimonials

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


Hi Andy,  

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! 

Irena
