Our tours are designed to make the most of your visit to the Lake District and give you the chance to visit the most beautiful parts of the National Park. Tours are planned to arrive at popular spots during quiet times of the day – we believe it is it is how you experience the Lake District that makes for a memorable tour.
Lake District Tours are informal, relaxed and informative with plenty of photo stops – many of these are planned but many more are unplanned to take advantage of spectacular weather conditions, local events or wildlife sightings.
We have been operating tours in the Lake District for 20 years. In that time we have remained true to our belief that small group tours provide a more personal and enjoyable way of experiencing the area. We are large enough to handle most requests but remain small enough to care and are able to go that extra mile to provide a personal service that our guests appreciate.
'Thanks so much Andrew. Steve was wonderful. He took us to the camera store in Kendal first where we found out that Hope's camera problem was the new card she had put in. Since then, the camera has worked fine. The tour was great! If the weather had been likewise, it would have been great photographic experience. As it was, we really enjoyed the scenery and Steve's wonderful knowledge.'
Should you tour with us you are never just a number, a colour code or 'another bum on a seat' but a valued visitor who is deserving of the best possible experience. Our driver/guides are friendly, knowledgable and enthusiastic.
If you are spending a large part of the day in a vehicle it should have comfortable seating, leg room, air conditioning, good visibility and above all be safe and reliable. Our vehicles of choice are VW Transporter 8 passenger minivans with elevated seating and superior suspension to give you a more comfortable ride.
On larger tours we work with our friends at Heron Travel who share our philosophy in providing the most comfortable transport possible with their range of 16 seat Executive minicoaches.

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!
