After doing some research, my daughter and I booked tour with Andy from Show Me Cumbria Tours. What a fantastic decision! Andy picked up us from our Penrith accommodation, and along with a lovey American couple ,we set off on a most memorable day. We travelled along narrow, stone-walled roads through gorgeous towns and villages, around the many beautiful lakes... More

We went to Center Parcs near Penrith and were searching for good sight seeing information in a day to explore Cumbria. Found Anthony's /ShowmeCumbria contact details and he made our family day out!!!

After reading many reviews about Andy on Tripadvisor and Rick Steves blog, we contacted him and were lucky to book a five hour tour of the Lakes District, just my husband and me. We gave Andy a general idea of the things we would like to see, and the things we are not interested in, and also asked him to... More

We've stayed at B&B in Penrith In April 2014. I was really lucky to find out a great way to enjoy our trip. A half-day drive tour with Andy in this small beautiful countryside was specious and great experience for me and my parents. ペンリスという小さな小さな湖水地方の町で何をするか途方に暮れていた私たちですがAndyに出会えたお陰で短い滞在を最大限有意義に過ごせました。ツアー内容はアンディに相談しながら行きたい場所を決めていきます。約5-6時間のツアーで10箇所以上のの町や湖を回りました。写真はCDに焼いて後日宿まで持ってきていただきました。是非おすすめします。

After hearing him do a presentation, we were sufficiently charmed to take a five hour tour of the Lake District with Andy on a lovely sunny day in September, 2015. He picked us up at our remote accommodation in a modern and comfortable car. During the tour we visited a lot of sights Andy thought we should see but also... More

Our family of four (13 and 9 year old) were delighted by Andy's driving tour of the Lake District. His local knowledge meant we could sit back and totally relax and enjoy the scenery, photo stops, historical and recent history. Wonderful meal at the Druncken Duck - a great way to experience this special part of the island!

Like so many other new visitors to the Lake District, I really didn't know where to go or what to see. Thanks to Rick Steves's advice, I booked a room at a b&b in Keswick and I then scheduled a half-day tour with Andy of Show Me Cumbria. Both pieces of advice were invaluable; both created the perfect first trip... More

Today we joined with the lovely Rosemary and John and had a great tour with Andy! What Andy doesn't know about Cumbria simply hasn't happened yet he's the father of tour... More

My sister and I booked a 3-day visit to the Lakes for some fell walking and were fortunate that our B&B recommended Andy. Coming from overseas and not wanting to rent a car or break the bank, it turned out to be the perfect solution. We contacted Andy in advance and were able to arrange transfers from/to the train station... More
