Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Andy did an excellent job of showing us the best of the Lake District on a full-day tour. He was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable - and - a topnotch driver. We let him pick the itinerary, and he did not disappoint. I especially liked seeing and hearing about "The Struggle", the Surprise View of Derwent Water and the stunning Holehird Gardens.

Andy worked with us to customize a full day tour of the Lake District. He included the places we wanted to see, convinced us why we should skip a few, and included a couple of surprises we would not have known to consider. He showed us much more than we would have seen on our own - and we didn’t have to do the driving. A great day!

Andy knows a lot about the places we saw, their history, English history, and was able to answer any questions we had.

Letting Andy show you around would be a wise decision.

Andy made touring Cumbria easy and fun! We had an excellent day seeing all the sights we were hoping to see and more! Andy's driving skills were top notch on those narrow winding roads. His car was comfortable and clean and he is so knowledgeable of the area. We were so happy at the end of the day. We would never have seen so much without him.

Thank you Janice! When visiting this area with very little time, it’s important to make a list, which you all did. All I did was put it in to an order that fitted with your time available. It worked and I think we got it all done! It was a pleasure showing you the best route!

We couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide than Andy! We three women from Oregon had only one day to see as much as possible and Andy did not disappoint! Andy is a competent driver on those very narrow winding roads and told stories along the way! I would never have tried driving on my own! Andy gave us ample time at each stop to explore and we managed to see all on our list and even one of Andy’s favorite - Surprise View. Thank you Andy for a splendid day in the Lake District!

It’s always a pleasure when I tour with people who are receptive to learning about the area. The Fells, the Farms, the Countryside and the way of life! Hope to see you back some day.

We had a fantastic day tour of the Lake District with Andy. He was incredibly knowledgeable and made sure to accommodate all our requested sights. He gave ample time for stops, photos, and snacks, and was wonderful company along the way as well. Not to mention he’s an incredibly competent and confident driver which put my mind at ease through any tight squeezes on the road! Would absolutely recommend for any and all who wish to tour the area and are looking for a fantastic tour driver.

Andy looked after us for transfers and a full day of touring the Lake District, and you couldn't ask for a more helpful and knowledgeable guide. We had a slight mix-up with train arrival times which meant some confusion and extended waiting on the day but we were followed up and looked after beautifully. Andy is born and bred so knows everything there is to know about this beautiful part of the world. Highly recommend.

I hope you had no more ‘transfer trouble’ on the rest of your visit.! I enjoyed showing you our way of life and hearing about yours. I hope you get back some time and we can do the coast!

My wife and I spent a wonderful day this week touring the Lake District with Andy. He was charming and knowledgeable. He knew all of the nicest places in the District and the best routes to get us from place to place. We received an outstanding overview of the District and it was a pleasure to spend the day with Andy.

This company provides outstanding tours and service.
You will not be sorry if you book with them. We spent 2 days touring the Lake District with Andy. We saw areas we never would have found on our own plus we learned so much about the area from him. He is a great guide and driver plus he has a wonderful personality. He was very flexible when we had to change our drop off point on the second day. He is also very responsive. I highly recommend Show Me Cumbria.
