        Excellent lakes tour!
        Yesterday, I thoroughly enjoyed the full day tour around the lakes with Tim, our tour guide/driver. Tim was very knowledgeable and kept us informed of interesting points and stories during the course of the drive. He had an enthusiastic demeanour and his love of the beautiful surroundings shone through as someone who genuinely enjoys their job. As a solo traveller, Tim’s friendliness made me feel looked after and at ease. We had sufficient breaks for photos, refreshments and toilet stops. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour, as you will get to see and learn far more than touring in your own car. Many thanks Tim and Mountain Goat for a memorable day out!!

        Wonderful way to explore the Dales
        I treated my mum to the Yorkshire Dales all-day tour from York for her birthday and we had a lovely day together. Our driver Trevor was incredibly knowledgeable and his love for the area was palatable. He did all he could to make it a pleasant experience, stopping at various points for photos (also taking some for us) As a non-driver it was a fantastic way to explore this area of the world, knowing we were in experienced hands. We enjoyed various stops along the route, so plenty of time for refreshment and to stretch our legs. A particular highlight was a 12C church at Hubberholme . Thank you Trevor for a great experience.

        Awesome tour
        This is an unmissable tour if you are interested in Roman history or archeology. It's especially good if you don't have a car and still want to see Hadrian's Wall. Seeing Vindolanda was amazing. Duncan was a great guide!!! If you go in Spring, wear good footwear you don't mind getting muddy!

        Awesome day
        My sister and I had an awesome day touring the Lakes District and learning so much along the way .... even in the rain and wind ... which just added so much atmosphere to the experience. Tim was an excellent guide - so knowledgable about the area, and also funny. He also recited some wonderful poems from English authors along the way. All in all we recommend this trip.

        Great day out
        Mark Shipley is very knowledgable and energetic guide. He is most considerate of his passengers. Despite the weather being rainy and windy, we had a great day and comfortable ride on a near new bus. highly recommend.

        Best of the Lake District...
        It was the best decision we made! With the limited time that we had, the only logical way to have an imersive experience was to get on a tour. Mark did a fabulous job, entertaining and keeping us safe throughout the journey. Highly recommend anyone to get on one of these tours to maximise the experience.

        Fabulous and great value for money
        Had the absolute pleasure of a trip with Gerry on the Mountain Goat today(April 6th). Gerry’s humour warmth and incredible knowledge made the trip very special. The day was carefully planned to ensure we saw so much with the best views. Would thoroughly recommend this trip for an overview of the beautiful and spectacular Lake District. Thank you Gerry ! We loved it! Tony and Sharon

        Ten day lake tour spectacular
        I highly recommend this trip of the Ten Lake spectacular with Mark Shipley. It was thoroughly entertaining and informative with visits to out of way places that I certainly wouldn’t drive to. Thank you Mark for a wonderful day out. I really enjoyed everything. Wendy from Yorkshire

        A memorable full day tour!! Amazing!!
        We recently took the “Lake District: Western Lakes Full Day Tour” with the lively and amazing guides Tim and Ted. It was such a lovely and well planned tour. My mother and I had a blast with Tim’s witty jokes and photography expertise (perfect for social media posts .’D) and Ted’s well detailed explanations on the locations as we passed by them. We highly recommend these fun filled adventures with Mountain Goat, they are thoroughly thought out and are very enjoyable and entertaining. We hope to visit again soon. Thank you Tim and Ted!!!

        A grand day out.
        We took the North York Moors/Whitby day long tour from York, and it exceeded expectations. John, our driver and guide, was knowledgeable and presented everything excellently, he made all the difference to the tour. Although we are York born and bred, there were quite a few things that were new to us, and we had a wonderful day.

      We did the winter version of the 10 Lakes in a day tour. Our driver for the day was Tess and she was brilliant. Her commentary throughout was informative and entertaining. At every stage her focus was on us and getting the most from the day. This is the second Mountain Goat tour that we’ve done and I’m sure it won’t be the last.

      Mountain Goat Tour lived up to its expectations. They greeted us, through Mark, at Windermere Train Station and made their very best efforts to provide a brilliant service - and I must say that Mark did a very fantastic job whilst he drove us through such an amazing place with brilliant scenery. THANK YOU MARK!

      I sincerely recommend the tour to potential visiting tourists. *Just in case you were wondering why there is no tour including the Lake Cruise during winter times, that is because it is not possible and that service only resumes during summer time.

      Once again, thank you Mountain Goat, thank you MARK. FULL MARKS!
