Tour the Lake District with Lake District Tours

Lake District Tours are the specialists in guided sightseeing tours of the Lake District. We provide driver guided small group, half and full day sightseeing tours from Windermere, with time to enjoy the breathtaking scenery, take spectacular photographs and breathe some of the purest air in England!

The Lake District National Park is one of the most beautiful places in England and a ‘must see’ destination. Our driver guided tours follow carefully designed itineraries to make the most of your visit yet our guides do not follow a script; instead they tailor their tours to each individual group creating a memorable experience every time.

So on your visit to the Lake District don’t just see it - experience it with the original Lake District Tours!

Over the winter season from Nov 1 to Mar 14 we offer only private tours - roads and weather can be unpredictable so the flexibility of a private tour allows for maximum enjoyment. With a bt of luck the sight of snowcapped peaks reflected in the still lakeland waters can be truly magical.

Why Lake District Tours?



Blue Badge Tourist GuideTour the Lake District with a Blue Badge Tourist Guide,
an official, professional tourist guide of the United Kingdom. They are recognised by local tourist bodies throughout the UK, and by Visit Britain as Britain's official tourist guides.

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

Lake District Tours Excellent service

“Four days of sublime scenery, most of which we would have missed had we not been guided by Andy.  He was generous with his exceptional local knowledge, was a considerate and careful driver, but mostly was a most enjoyable travelling companion.  Highly recommended.  Tim & Gethyn Prior”
