    Lee, John and Matt were excellent! Lee had a game with a prize which warmed up the trip. We learned about the Lake District as well as having fun. We had time exploring the towns. I like the most was walked/hike to the top of a hill in Keswick. I learned from John the plant Nettle, can be used medicinally, ceremonially and as a highly nutritious food source. Roots, seeds, stems and young, tender leaves are all edible. Native Indigenous people use stinging nettle for medicine, ceremony and as a food source. Mature fibrous stems have been used to make rope, cloth and fishing net. As you can see, he has good knowledge of variety of subjects. All in all, I highly recommend this tour.

    It was cancelled by operator day before trip. I did read other reviews about the same thing from this company so i wasn't surprised by what happened. We had a backup plan.

    Had an amazing experience. The busybus was on time for pickup. Fortunately the entire bus was just for us. We were a group of 10 friends. The driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. Really would recommend to anyone. Worth booking it.

    Our guide, Stuart, met us exactly as planned, in time, and fully prepared for the day. The Busy Bus was clearly marked and immaculately clean. The ride was comfortable, and Stuart had every stop timed perfectly. It was a beautiful tour, and we learned a lot. It was a great balance between natural beauty and time to explore shops, cafes, and restaurants. We made it back to Bay A at the airport in a timely manner, and Stuart helped us find transit back to our hotel. A great day, over all.
