An absolutely stunning day from Windermere to the most gorgeous scenery I've seen this week. Booked on a whim but turned out to be the best thing we did and we are going to come back and do it again in the summer. The scenery is amazing! Tim and Jill were fantastic and even the minibus was top-notch with phone charging and wifi as well as nice, cosy seats. Yorkshire Dales are the Best!

We had a great day out in the Dales on this tour. We were staying in Windermere in the Lake District and discovered that we could get a tour to see some different scenery in the Yorkshire Dales. It was absolutely breathtaking! The lakes are lovely but the Dales are just as spectacular and if you like scenery, don't miss this opportunity to see some gorgeous places which are so close geographically to the Lakes but so very, very different and beautiful as a landscape. We didn't know how easy it was to get to fab places outside the Lakes area. The tour itself was very interesting, and everything looked great in the snow and frost. We were lucky that the sun was out for most of the day but the wind was cold so hats and gloves are a must. The van was warm, cozy and a lovely place to have conversations with Jill the guide and other passengers. Tim was an ace driver and drove some really scary roads without flinching! What a hero! All in all a brilliant day and would recommend.
