Solo college student from America. Had the absolute best time on this trip and highly recommend. This is a great company and the guides are not only amazing, but are passionate about what they do and their company.

A very amazing and interesting tour of the beautiful Lake District from Manchester. The duration of the tour was about 9 hours. This tour was an ideal way to see such greenery and great landscape along the way to Lake District. The tour takes us to visit the medieval village of Hawkshead where we had a light lunch. As we move on, we travel through incredible Landale Valleys and it's really beautiful, indeed a breathtaking scenery of the landscape. A very different environment from the busy city life. The whole journey was comfortable, smooth and a joy as the weather was great, though a bit cold as we get off the bus to take photographs. As we reached the Lake District, we had a cruise ride which is really enjoyable across the Lake and get to see the cozy surrounding areas. The Tour Guide was very experienced and knowledgeable. She was very accommodating and helpful, giving us sufficient time to move around to see the surrounding places. All in all, the entire journey was excellent with a good insight of the English Villages as we pass by along the way to the Lake District.

Excellent trip, good driver. Just enough info, without being too detailed. Wet and windy, but that's part of going in January. Beautiful scenery and quaint English villages.
