We spent a wonderful day in this beautiful part of the country with two kind experts and locals. Gillian and Sandra made a great team with lots of interesting history and showed us lovely highlights of the region. We will definitely be returning to check out some of their recommendations!

One tour not to be missed. Great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and went above and beyond answering questions. Very friendly, was like we was on a tour with a friend. View points were breathtaking

Had the best day with Tim on this tour. His company was fantastic only beaten by his knowledge of the area. Excellent way to see a large area of the lakes whilst learning the history and being expertly driven up some questionable roads to some amazing view points. Highly recommended

Tim gave us a fabulous day, calmly and expertly driving on hairy roads to gorgeous spots we would not have found on our own. Tim’s knowledge of both historical and current events and places of interest brought The Lakes alive for us. We had a real mix of weather and were lucky to see this beautiful place in a variety of conditions, all in one day. Note that the parking lot where you meet up does NOT allow for all day parking. You may park all day in another lot very close by, so arrive early enough to allow for a short walk over to the meeting place. I highly recommend this tour!
