Our driver Tony was very knowledgeable and expertly navigated some very bad driving conditions. Delivering everyone safe and sound. The tour was great and obviously we visited many beautiful areas of the lake district, but unfortunately, the weather was terrible, limiting the views and the experience.

Stunning scenery, with plenty of stops and time for taking photos. Elliott was a skillful driver, provided interesting commentary, and treated his passengers with a high level of care and thoughtfulness. I would absolutely encourage anyone to take this tour -- a fabulous day out!

We picked the High Adventures tour and it was amazing. Kevin the driver was brilliant, and the places we visited were so picturesque. Would recommend to anyone to do this tour, and saves on the stress of driving very narrow, very steep roads!!
