TOUR D – The Lakes Insider Tour

Book Now!

A selection of our favourite views linked by a scenic tour through South Lakeland


Tour Description

Whether you are in search of spectacular landscapes or a stunning backdrop to a family photo this Windermere tour has you in mind. We have collected not only our favourite views but those that inspired the very first Guidebook to the Lakes into a stunning tour.  The Lake District of William Wordsworth is linked with the Lake District of Beatrix Potter via inspirational viewpoints and some of the prettiest villages for a great day out.

This is a leisurely tour from Windermere where you will  appreciate that great views can be seen from the roadside, but truly stunning views that make you stop and exclaim 'wow!'  require a little effort. We encourage you to join your guide on short walks to experience those 'wow!' views that you will not see on any other tour.

Sharing a wow! moment above Grasmere

Early explorers in the Lake District followed guidebooks that identified viewing stations where truly 'wow!' views were found that showed the Lake District at its most picturesque.

The finale of our tour is a visit to the recently restored Claife Viewing Station above Windermere before taking the ferry across the lake in the footsteps of those early pioneers of Lakeland tourism.


Dear Andy, 

Thank you for your guidance yesterday, the tour is really very great and we did have lots of "wow" moment as mentioned in the description. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery.

Why Lake District Tours?


I took Tour D on 14 May 09, and had a wonderful time. We had a wonderful guide and a lot of fun.  I plan on returning to the UK in a year or two, and will spend 2-3 days in the Lake District next time and most certainly will use your tour company again.  I will also recommend you to anyone I know planning on going to the Lake District.
