A fantastic value for money tour !

This excellent value for money tour takes you to some of the best highlights and high points the Lake District has to offer. Derek was an excellent guide and superbly skilled driver. Although there was a packed itinerary the tour never once felt hurried. There was plenty of stops providing the opportunity to photograph the stunning views. The birds of prey flight display at Muncaster Castle was a real bonus ! The perfect tour if you want to make the most of a short stay in the Lake District. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your review of our High Adventure tour, I am pleased you had a fantastic day with Derek and though the tour was value for money. I am pleased to read you enjoyed the itinerary and a firm favourite of ours, the bird of prey show. Hope you can join us again soon. Best wishes, Mountain Goat

I am so glad I booked this tour! It was a great way to see The Lake District as a first time visitor, my partner thoroughly enjoyed the day too even though he has been to The Lake District before. We saw the most amazing views. Malcolm, the driver was so informative, he was a great guide and very skillful and calm driver, especially on the steep, narrow roads! We had every confidence in him. The tour was great value for money fitting lots in but it didn't feel rushed. The train ride was fun with very pretty views and the castle grounds and bird of prey display was brilliant. The beautiful weather was the icing on the cake. Being picked up in Keswick was very convenient as that's where we were staying. We will definitely book a tour next time we come, probably the 10 lakes tour. It's such a great, hassle free way to see so much in a day!
