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.

It was a very memorable trip for us. We were the first to be picked up from Oxenholme by Mike the narrator with Andy driving the mini van. They were a wonderful team showing us and explaining everything. They patiently answered every question of ours. And since we were the last to alight, they even dropped us at our B&B. Thanks to both for giving us a wonderful tour.

The driver who made the countryside come alive. Pointed out interesting points of interest and the backstory or lore about each.

Jane was very knowledgeable and experienced. The tour was well worth it as we saw things in the Lake District we wouldn’t drive to.

Fantastic tour of the Dales. Our guide John was amazing! Everything you would want in a guide and more. Taught us so much about the Dales: history, culture, nature, and people. Thoroughly enjoyable and informative day. Cannot wait to take our next tour with Mountain Goat Tours.

Absolutely loved this tour! It took is over some roads that I probably wouldn’t have driven myself! But the driver was so skilled and knowledgeable about the area that I didn’t even think twice about the crazy windy single track roads (except to be glad that it wasn’t me driving!) It really was a great tour, well worth the money! Took so many beautiful photos, saw so many incredible things, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Would recommend and would do again!
