Great day out, beautiful scenery. Bus picked up at our hotel on time and we were met by our tour guide Mark. The whole day was interactive and very interesting, we were taken around the lakes which was amazing but the tour was taken to another level by Marks knowledge of the area and his approach to us and our enjoyment of the day. By far the best tour guide i have ever had the opportunity to meet. I would definitely recommend this tour to anybody visiting the lake district. Thanks Mark you made our tour enjoyable from start to finish

I read the reviews before booking and can see why it’s been highly recommended. Our driver Duncan was very knowledgable and friendly. Full day approx 7.5 hours but worth it being able to see some sites you wouldn’t get to see without a guide. Just the right amount of breaks and stops. Stunning scenery with minimal walking which was good for us.

Great tour around the lakes. Derek is a fountain of knowledge with great wit to make the day very enjoyable.
Great way to see a snapshot of the Lakes which we will now use to help us choose what to do with the rest of our time in this beautiful part of the world.

I was very happy to seize the opportunity to explore the beautiful view of the lakes. I am grateful to the tour guide, Peter who was very helpful, knowledgeable and very polite and friendly. Windermere is very far from London. However it was worth travelling there to see the different lakes. It was also a great opportunity to meet other people from other countries.

My wife and I have just completed this tour with Peter Walker our guide. This trip far out weighed our expectations, we have been on many excellent excursions in Europe and this stands along with those. Peter was both an excellent driver on difficult roads and a great guide , his knowledge was excellent. The stops Peter took us to gave great vantage points for photos. The trip certainly settled our minds to come back again to the area and use this tour company. Thanks so much Peter you have made our day.

We did the ten lakes tour with Mountain Goat from Keswick on a Sunday early in the season. We booked on Trip Advisor, and had no problem with the e tickets, and we're picked up promptly from the central car park.

There were just three of us on the trip, so plenty of space on the minibus. The trip comprises two loops, which can be taken separately if preferred, so we did the morning section and returned to Keswick to start the afternoon tour. Lunch was taken in Grasmere, where we had ample time for a pub meal. There were plenty of other stops for photo opportunities, or coffee / bathroom stops.

Included was a short boat trip on Windermere from Ambleside to Bowness. Other highlights included Suprise View, and Castlerigg stone circle. Our driver was very friendly and full of useful information.

We would use Mountain Goat again, and found them a very professional organization.

We had a wonderful day out on this tour. Our driver/guide (whose name I've forgotten - sorry!) was great fun while driving us out to the different spots. It was actually a well planned day, not too rushed, and with a lunch stop in Grasmere. We were especially lucky to get a beautiful and sunny day which only made the day better. I highly recommend this tour, particularly to anyone who is unable or not up to hiking the heights themselves. Really brilliant day spent!

Mark from Mountain Goat took me on a great tour of the Ten Lakes. Collected on time from Keswick Central Car Park, Mark responded to local conditions (it had snowed overnight!) to reorganise the order of the day tour to make sure all destinations were available and achieved. Marks knowledge of local roads,driving skills, history, his stories, geology and the famous people and places was was excellent and his manner friendly, interesting and very professional. I had a great day out for what could have been cancelled given the weather and that I was the only passenger that day! But with Mountain Goat, the show must go on! This was critical for me because i was here only a couple of days. I had a car but the tour took me to great places i did not know existed.

What a great day, with a great guide. Carol was knowledgable and funny. The weather was perfect in the morning, clouded over in the late afternoon, but the views and "photo opps" were terrific. Thanks for a lovely day, capped off by an Ullswater cruise.

It was our first time to the Lake District and we wanted to get a good overview of the area with our limited time. We don’t normally like tours, but this day tour was perfect! We boarded at a convenient location in Keswick, and our friendly tour guide Meryl was an excellent guide and driver, navigating tricky roads that we most likely wouldn’t have tried. Spectacular views all day, with many photo opportunities, some time to explore during lunch and also an amazing lake cruise. We saw all places as described, and kept to the time scheduled. Keep up the great work. I will definitely recommend Mountain Goat Tours to my friends!
