We very much enjoyed our tour. The countryside was beautiful and we took some great photos. Trevor really knew his stuff and told us many interesting information. He is an excellent tour guide. The stopovers at Grassington and Hawes were memorable and we had enough time to eat and to look around without being rushed.

My husband and I toured the Yorkshire Dales yesterday with John and John. (We picked up the second John in Hawes to return him to York from the Lake District.). What an amazing day in the Dales! We visited castles, villages, a creamery for yummy cheese, waterfalls, and an ice cream stop. The most beautiful part was near the Buttertubs Pass. Spectacular! Both gentlemen were excellent guides and great drivers. We highly recommend Mountain Goat!

Fantastic day in the Yorkshire Dales with our Driver/Guide Mark Shipley leaving us with many happy memories we shall always treasure. His knowledge and history of the Dales, from its geology to the origins of the names of the many villages and towns we passed through bought our tour to life. Likewise Mark provided an insight to the people themselves who live and work in the Dales and how the environment has shaped their lives on all levels from cultural to spiritual. Throughout the day we paused our tour for breathtaking views providing opportunities for some amazing photo shots. In particular the Edwardian rock garden was a sheer delight, a gem of a location tucked away in plain sight…..I won’t give any more away but let you all discover it for yourselves. Best of all we all got to meet Wallace and Gromit and had a photo shot with the connoisseurs of cheese themselves whilst stopping off at the Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes. All in all the whole day was filled with laughter and a good time was had by all of us. We were only a small group but by the end of the day we were all sorry to part. Mark was a joy to be with and the trip to Bolton Castle where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned was one of his many jewels in his crown. Mark’s passion for the Yorkshire Dales inspired all of us with his enthusiasm. Mark is a true Yorkshireman full of spirit and kindness and generosity. As a Yorkshireman myself all I can say is “By gum lad that was a Grand Day Out”!

A really good day out, Mark Shipley our guide was very informative and very entertaining. He took us to some truly hidden gems and has definitely given us a keenness to visit the Yorkshire Dales for a break. There were many highlights but one of our favourite aspects of the trip was the visit to the Wensleydale Creamery, we got to sample the various cheeses before buying, just delicious! In summary, it was a thoroughly enjoyable day with amazing scenery which was made all the more better with our fabulous guide.
