Lake District Tours

Lake District Tours have been operating tours from Windermere 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. Meet the Lake District Tours team

Excellent attention! Although we had two hours delay with the train, they made it possible to show us Lake District, an awesome place to visit! We were coming from abroad so we are very thankful with this gesture of support! Excellent views, great van, the points we visited are a dream! We highly recommend Lake District Tours!

Tours are designed to make the most of your visit to Windermere, the Lake District and give you the opportunity to visit the most beautiful parts of the National Park.

Crucially tours are planned to arrive at popular spots during quiet times of the day – we believe it is how you experience the Lake District that makes for a memorable tour.

Hi Andy!

I wanted to let you know, today was great, a marvellous day thanks to Stephen and yourself! We are very thankful for your effort and dedication!

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.

'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.'

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”
