    Took the 6 hr Lake District your from Windermere station. Our tour guide, David is one of the best guys I have met. He gives lot of historical information , does not hurry , ensures that you get enough time to click pictures. In summary, he takes very good care of customer interests. Would highly recommmed this tour with David if you want to see Lake District

    David was a brilliant guide and we all thoroughly enjoyed our day out with him, and also learnt alot! His local knowledge is second to none, and he shares this in a really entertaining way - not like being at school! He knows so much about the area and its history and he loves to share this knowledge. He even found us great coffee and lunch stops (the Kings Head near Grasmere was particularly good, with friendly staff and quick service). He has a great sense of humour! We definitely recommend his tours and will use him again.

    Made our journey delightful, he was thorough yet not in school fashion but in story teller way, he was funny and interactive with everyone. We admire how considerate he was coz one of us wasn't speaking english so David would tell a fact or story and ask us to transelate it to him every time we forget (even his jokes he would ask us to transelate them to him so he would laugh too) I've never paid attention to much informations and fact for 6 hrs but I did this time. I tried to upload beautiful pictures but sadly an error prevented their upload
