An extremely well organized tour - all aspects of this tour occurred with clockwork precision. The travel in the Lake District was provided by Mountain Goat Tours with our guide having excellent knowledge of all aspects of the history, culture, geography and life style of the Lake District and the part Beatrix Potter played in that history. A great day.

A wonderful day trip from London. Clear instructions were provided on the ticket emailed including where to meet a representative from the tour company at Euston Station. The representative was excellent outlining the day trip and what to expect. Upon arrival at Oxenholme railway station, we were met by Peter Fox our tour guide for the day. Peter was very polite, informative, obliging and an excellent driver. The highlights for me were Beatrix Potters home Hilltop, Hawkshead and the cruise on Lake Windermere. Peter ensured we were back in time at Oxenholme to meet our train back to London. A beautiful part of the UK and would highly recommend the tour if you have limited time to visit.

The Lake District is beautiful and a few days there would be fun. But if you do not have that time this tour is a great way to see it. It is very doable in a day. The guide was very nice and full of fun interesting information. I would recommed this tour.

The day in the Lake District was the highlight of my trip to England. Everything, from the train trips, being picked up and returned to the station, and the visit to Beatrix Potter's cottage, went without a glitch. It's a long day, but it was thoroughly enjoyable!
