What people are saying about Windermere
I read the reviews prior to booking my tour, i can assure you it was excellent, even on a rainy day... wow. Clear, informative commentary through-out; talking about the historic events etc and the destinations are very well structured showing awesome views across the Lakes. You have plenty of stops to take photos and a lunch hour in Keswick, what more could you ask for? The boat ride was a great laugh too with an odd shower of water for front seat passengers hahaha. The views of the area are stunning. and i would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who visits the lakes, a grand day out and a SPECTACULAR host-driver Anne was a star. An unforgettable experience, thank you.
Let someone else do the driving. An enjoyable trip with a driver full of local knowledge
Mathew was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable and informative every where we went. Learned so much and seen so much that you could never do in a day on your own. Great value for money.
We covered a lot of ground with contrasting scenery and weather conditions. When the weather brightened the views were magnificent. It was such a pity that the cruise on the way back was extremely wet.
On August 14, 2018 we joined the "Lake District Tour from Manchster", organised by Mountain Goat Tours & Holidays. We had booked the tour online from “Get Your Guide”. The tour started at 9 AM and lasted around 7 PM. Our first stop was at the tourist office of the organizers at Windermere, a small but beautiful railway station. Next stop was at hill top and then visited Beatrix Potter's 17th-century farmhouse and gardens. Potter a writer, illustrator, natural scientist, and conservationist best known for her children's books featuring animals, such as those in The Tale of Peter Rabbit. She is credited with preserving much of the land that now constitutes the Lake District National Park. Lunch time was at a village Hawkshead , famous for its Old Grammar School where William Wordsworth was a student. Finally, but not the least, the cruise in lake Windermere. All in all it was a lifetime experience. The whole tour was well organized and our guide Carl and Mathew mesmerized everybody p
