    David is a spectacular guide who is so friendly and funny. He's very accommodative too. My parents and I had a wonderful time going around the Lake District. The car was comfortable and we got very lucky with the weather as it was sunny when David drove us up to a fantastic view for photos. We also thank him a lot for introducing us to Grasmere Gingerbread - we went back the next day just to get more. Overall 10/10 experience and highly recommend David for a private tour of the Lake District!

    David was an incredibly informative guide who showed us so much of the beautiful Lake District. He has an excellent knowledge of the history of the District and of all the most scenic places to see. His tour really gave us an in depth introduction to the area, his car was comfortable and roomy, and David himself is a most personable gentleman. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    This is not a trip to be missed. Out of London, amazing countryside. David the tour guide was so knowledgeable and gave me lots of information on the district and Beatrix Potter. Thoroughly enjoyable and I would go again.
