Private Lake District tour
Excellent tour of the Lake District with a very knowledgeable tour guide. Tim was quick to tell us the story’s, history and. interesting spots around the Lake District and answered our questions with keen knowledge that someone from the area would only know. Great scenery and roads that we would have not taken just driving about. Since this was a private tour, we were able to add requests for areas to the tour and Tim listened and accommodated the tour just to our liking. A full day for sure but with Tim’s insights and experience it was just right to get a full picture of the Lakes District. We would recommend the tour and Tim as well to all.

Best tour trip to lake district
Aug 2021 • Couples
Its been a wonderful day with tim. Was a bit of a panic situation at first, when we turned up late. But Tim managed to get us there just before the boat boarded.
Tim is very friendly and funny at the same time. The places we visited today had amazing view. We learned a lot about the place. Nice and smooth ride, Will definitely recommend Tim to my friends and family if they plan to visit the place.

Thank you for your review. Tim, like all of our guides, will always do what he can to sort out a panic and get things smoothly back on track so that you can enjoy your day. I am glad that you enjoyed the Ultimate 10 lakes tour and that you saw and did so much. I will pass your comments on to Tim who will be very happy. Hope you will come back one day.

Wonderful day
Aug 2021 • Couples
A brilliant day. Tim,our guide was really knowledgeable,friendly and entertaining. At every stop there was plenty of time to soak up the splendid views and take as many photos as you wanted. A wonderful way to see the Lakes without the stresses of negotiating the narrow roads and passes.

I am pleased that you had such a good day with Tim, he is a very welcoming and friendly guide. The Ultimate 10 Lakes Tour which you went on is good for seeing a lot in a sort space of time and Tim will be very happy that you felt that there was enough time off the bus to soak up the views and take lots of photos. You are absolutely right, taking a tour is the best way to see the lakes, find out about the area, ask questions and give your driver a day off. The roads around here can be fiendishly narrow and twisty so it sounds as though you did the right thing for a stress-free tour of the Lakes. Thanks for your review and I will let Tim know you enjoyed your day.

Aug 2021 • Couples
We went on a full day tour of the Lake District during our holiday and would highly recommend this to others! Tim was so knowledgeable and funny, we felt really comfortable and saw some beautiful sights. This tour was everything we hoped it would be and more. You are really well looked after on your day out, covid precautions are in place and Tim is on hand to answer all of your questions. We loved the stories and interesting facts. The scenery was beautiful and the boat cruise so serene. Thank you for a brilliant day!

I am very pleased that you enjoyed your Ultimate 10 Lakes Tour and that you had a very enjoyable day. We always try to look after our guests on and off the bus and protect them as much as we can with our covid procedures. One of the highlights of the tour is the boat cruise which is a very peacefull experience and, of course, the scenery is breathtaking. Glad that you enjoyed it all and thanks for your review.

Had a wonderful day across scenic valleys, mountains, lakes and villages! Interesting and informative tour with an amazing tour guide/driver, Tim! Lunch at Lakeside Cafe near Keswick was brilliant with a freat view and delicious food. It was my first time to have burger with avocado and its mouth watering!
A big check in my bucket list of places to visit in UK!
Thank you so much English Lakes Tour for an amazing experience.

Thanks for such a good review. The Ultimate 10 Lakes Tour is great for fantastic scenery and getting to know the Lakes a bit better as you found out. The Lakeside Cafe does do some delicious food and we always try to give our guests the opportunity to taste local variations of well known favourites using local produce. I will let Tim know that you enjoyed your day with him. hope you will come to visit the Lakes again soon.

My husband booked this tour for us. Tim met us at Windermere Station and off we went. Another passenger joined us at another pick-up point and off we went.
The tour was fabulous. Tim's commentary throughout was very informative and we saw a lot during this tour. Tim's driving was wonderful. I was glad that I didn't have to do all those tight roads and gradients.
The weather cooperated as well, which helped. Thank you for a wonderful day and good luck with your future plans.

Value for money. Great way of touring the Lakes without the stress!
Jul 2021 • Couples
All of it. I liked paddling in a lake. I think it would have been nice to have lunch included in the price maybe? Driver Tim was lovely and made it a relaxing experience. He answered everyone’s questions and is a very good driver too. The vehicle was spacious, clean and had good air conditioning and speakers in the back, so we could communicate with the driver. There was a transparent screen petition between the driver and the occupants of the car, to protect us all from Covid. There was hand sanitizer in the car, and the seats were all covered with washable covers. Bought some famous gingerbread at Grasmere, where William Wordsworth is buried.

We always try to make our Lake District Tours as varied and relaxed as we can so that everyone can enjoy them as much as possible. The small group of up to six people means that everyone can have a conversation and get to know each other and their driver and guide. It takes them years to get to know the lakes as well as they do and they will be pleased that you enjoyed your time with them on the tour. Thank you.

Fantastic guide and great tour
We are not the first to recommend Tim as a guide, he was great. Really knowledgable and with just the right amount of patience and energy to make this highly enjoyable and interesting even though the day we chose was not the best....cold and wet! But we would do it all again.
