Amazing Trip With The Best Tour Guide
Aug 2021 • Family
My 12 year old daughter and I did this tour in the summer and it was the highlight of our holiday. From start to finish we were made to feel welcome, and Frank our tour guide was absolutely lovely, funny and very knowledgable. Will definitely be trying the other tours Busybus offer when we are next up from Cornwall. Couldn’t recommend enough, brilliant day.

Amazing your highly recommended this trip
Sep 2021 • Couples
We had a lovely trip yesterday to the Lake District hosted by the lovely Shelley. She was polite, funny and very informative about the local area and history of the lakes. She took us to many beautiful spots and lots of opportunities for pictures. We both really enjoyed the trip and would highly recommend this tour if you want to visit the Lake District in a day. It was Really good value for money too.

Thank you Shelley & Busy Bus Tours

Beautiful day out!
Both the Lake District and the North Wales excursions were excellent. Our guides, Adrian and Frank, were both informative, entertaining and very skilful drivers. We spent 2 amazing days, and we warmly recommend BusyBus to anyone who wants to spend a pleasant day or two without the hassle of driving their own car.
Thank you very much again!🥰

The Tour that fits everything you need to know about the Lake District in one go!
Jun 2021
If you are someone who has no clue about the Lake District or even what's it all about then you should DEFINITELY book a tour with Busybus!

I went on the tour with Adrian as our host and a group of 7 others in a very COVID secure spacious minibus, I was temperature checked before getting on board and was given a full safety briefing including proposed itinerary before setting off.

Castlerigg Stone Circle was amazing and especially with the beautiful sunshine, Grasmere didn't disappoint with Sarah Nelsons Gingerbread and the walk along Blea Tarn was wonderful with so many opportunities to take pictures. The lakes at Ambleside and Windermere were stunning, and a boat trip is highly recommended if you want to get a better look at the scenery.

Adrian was a fantastic guide, he made us all very welcome and his sense of humour never failed to disappoint, the music and the stories all tied in nicely with the surroundings and I arrived home having a lovely day out with lots of memories and photographs!

Thanks again to BusyBus for making my week off an amazing one!

Excellent tour of Lake District with Frank@Busybus
Lovely scenery around the national park. Windermere was so serene and so the Grasmere and Castlerig. Frankly 1 day tour is not sufficient to cover this but we managed to have a fair view

Tour of the Lake District
We just completed an excellent 8.5 hour tour of the Lake District with our Busy Bus host, Shelly. We highly recommend the tour and Shelly. The 16 seater bus is very comfortable.
Shelly is punctual, professional and personable with an excellent knowledge of the Lake District including Lancaster, Ambleside, Grasmere, Bowmess, Windermere, etc. She delighted us with stories and local folklore of the places, sights and famous people such as Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth.

Amazing day out in Lake District
Jul 2019 • Family
We went to Lake District Adventure with my mum today, departing from Chester. I can't even express how great it was! All the stops on our way were really well-chosen. Breathtaking views, a walk near a little lake, some sweet villages, a boat trip and a group of very nice people travelling with us! However, our day wouldn't be that great if it weren't for Kevin. Thank you so much, Kevin! You're an amazing driver, guide, DJ and overall a very nice person. It was our pleasure to spend the day with you. Barbora & Blanka
