This was an amazing tour! Definitely worth the time on the train from London to Kendal and back. Our tour guide, Peter, was very friendly, passionate and well-informed about the history of Beatrix Potter and the Lake District. We were taken to a few breathtaking destinations around Windermere with just enough time at each spot to take photos and walk around. Lunchtime is spent in Hawkshead and if you’re not hungry you should check out the Beatrix Potter Gallery where you can view some of her original illustrations (there is a fee to get in). And it was a perfect ending to a perfect day with the ferry across the lake and finishing up with tea and scones at Lindeth Howe – just enough of a pick-me-up for the train back to London.

Overall, this is a wonderful tour. We had a good time riding on Virgin train and seeing the landscape. When we arrived, Peter our tour guide was very visible and we all gathered promptly. He was very nice and explained what was going to happen for the day. The weather was not so cooperative. It rained all day making the boat tour miserable. Tea at the end of the day was delicious and allowed for us to connect with our fellow tour mates. Peter our tour guide with Goat adventures was a plethora of knowledge and was doing a splendid job. I would definitely recommend staying the night so as to get more out of the trip.

We were so very lucky to have a "no rain" day in the Lake District. We were picked up at the train station by our guide and were the only ones that day so had a private tour which was nice. We headed off to see the sights. Our first stop was a little village with shops and small restaurants/cafes. I immediately asked where the restrooms were and our guide said "There are none" WHAT??? He said the only bathrooms were up the hill 10 minute walk each way??? I have 2 knee replacments and walk with a cane. He made NO suggestion to drive us up the hill and back. I could not believe it. Fortunately I asked a couple of places and finally found one kind enough to let me use their bathroom. Unfortunately that really put a damper on my opinion of our guide! I am retired from the National Park Service with 33 years of working with the public. The 2 most important pieces of information you relay to any public group is #1 the itinerary for the tour/walk with times at each location and MOST Importantly - where and when there will be be restroom facilities!!! Otherwise the tour itself was spectacular and we loved every minute of the area itself. I urge this tour company to review how they deal with this necessity!

From the moment that Peter of Mountaingoat picked us up at the train station to to time he returned us there a few hours later there was never a dull moment.
His tour guide comments about the Lake District were informative, delightful, and entertaining. His historical knowledge of the Romans and Vikings and how they connected to the Lake District was awesome. Thank you to Evan Evans for such an excellent day tour and an extra special thank you to PETER for a wonderful day.

My mother, daughter and myself traveled to London for a three generations trip. We booked this trip before leaving the US and were not sure what to expect. We could not stop talking about how much we enjoyed this trip. Even though there was a light rain most of the day, we did not care. We were enjoying ourselves so much! We met the agent from Evan Evans group and received our tickets and instructions. Everything went smoothly, just like the agent explained to us. When we arrived at Oxenholme we were met by Peter, our guide from Mountain Goat tours. He was so knowledgeable about the history of area. He was funny and took his time with us. We did not feel rushed at all. The lake cruise was nice too. My 78 year old mother said she would definitely do this trip again. I agree with her. This was the best part of our trip to the UK.

Our guide was nice enough but was very disorganized. We wasted so much time with checking people in, her talking to the other driver or buying our tickets. There was hardly any time at each stop, especially at Beatrix Potter’s house. No one asked any questions or even spoke on the ride, which is so unlike any tour I’ve taken. The boat ride was a complete time waster. Instead of doing the boat, we could have more time at the other stops. The highlight of the day was the tea & scones. Thumbs down on this tour, I wouldn’t recommend it.

So glad we took this day trip, although this is a long way from London! Our Trip Advisor/Evan Evans rep met us with information that told us exactly what to expect once our train arrived in the Lake District at Oxehholme Station. The subcontractor with Mountain Goat Tours was EXCELLENT - very familiar with the area, a good sense of humor, and we had plenty of time on our own for a quick meal and shopping. The trip included the lovely Hill Top Farm (think Beatrix Potter) and a short trip across Lake Windemere. This was a highlight in our trip of over 3 weeks in the U.K. and Ireland.

This was a great day. I was promptly met at the train station and given direction on where the guide would meet me.
Virgin trains was incredibly comfortable and clean, made the 2.5 hour ride a joy.
Meryl our guide with Goat adventures was professional and pleasant. Answered all questions and was very friendly.
Definitely would recommend this tour!!

Although trip advisor members were quick to jump on the don't go if you only have one day bandwagon when I originally inquired about this trip it was a lovely trip, only about a two and a half hour train trip. It was nice to see outside of London and the Lake District was stunning. While I would certainly love to spend more time there most likely I will never get to the UK again so I am very glad I went and Mountain Goat who does the tour in the Lake District does a fabulous job.
