The English Lake District is one of the most recent additions to UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Admire the rolling countryside and craggy fells whilst listen to your guide about the Lake District's history, geology and the people that have shaped this much-loved region.

Along the way, you will pass some of the region’s most spectacular sights, such as the Borrowdale Valley, Buttermere, Honister pass, Ullswater, and Grasmere. There are many stops on route; a highlight is the Castlerigg Stone Circle with its panoramic views. Our friendly driver/guide will provide an on-board commentary on this full day spectacular tour of lakes and mountains.

Gerry was an amazing guide. This tour was a highlight during our three week trip to the U.K. The history was fascinating and I am inspired to learn more about the local historical figures that are true heroines and heroes. The scenery was breathtaking. So glad we did this tour instead of touring around by car by ourselves. We would have missed out on so much. Thank you, Gerry!
