When I booked this tour I expected to drive an hour away to pick up the bus. The day before, Harry emailed me to offer to pick us up at our hotel. The tour was an easy day with plenty of stops and lots of information. As it is a small bus there was no problems waiting on tardy people... More

We happened upon a brochure promoting Bluebird Tours during the latter part of our weeks stay in Ambleside, and managed to get aboard the trip incorporating Ullswater and Hadrians Wall. Harry picked us up promptly from outside our hotel, and we set off on a drive along country lanes, and some of the most spectacular but less congested parts of... More

We took tour C including the miniature railway, castle with bird display and the remotest and deepest lake. A good commentary, nothing too much trouble for Harry and it takes away the strain not having to drive so you can concentrate on the scenery. Good value for money and I would happily take another tour with Bluebird.

It was a wonderful chance to observe the countryside without the worry of driving around the narrow roads. We were picked up from our accommodation and along the way saw little gems... More
