    Gillian was phenomenal and we learnt so much about the history of the Lake District & the incredible forward thinking Beatrix Potter. A font of as much knowledge we could absorb keeping us engaged through out the afternoon. Sandra’s expert manoeuvring of the mini bus made them a dynamic duo to be recommended to everyone. When we come back we will call them first to arrange another guided tour. Thank you 😊
