Huge thank you, the tour was simply incredible and we had the best time, really informative and the views were mindblowing - we got so many nice photos which we've looked back on so many times already of our tour. We can't wait to plan another weekend away and will definitely be contacting Mountain Goat when we do! Also wanted to say Tony our tour guide was the best tour we've ever had, such a nice guy and really made the tour an experience - Honestly can't recommend him enough!

We are so glad to have picked Mountina Goat to take us around the beautiful lake district. A special mention to Mark who kept us entertained, drove us around safely and planned the day so well given the weather was not necessarily perfect through out the day. Do lend an ear to him while he throws some really interesting facts and legends your way apart from those funny jokes regarding his driving test and more...

An interesting and enjoyable tour, thanks a lot to the tour guide of course. Lake District was truly spectacular even in the winter with the picturesque views of lakes and white snow-topped mountain. However, if you travel in winter time, do check the weather forecast carefully. We were lucky to be in the most beautiful winter day, which made the trip so pleasant.

We booked the 10 lakes tour. This is an all day tour. You have to book in advance. The minivan that took as around looked brand new. Lovely and clean and the seats spaced out for the 11 guests on the trip. Pick up was on time. Gerry our guide was a star. Full of good stories and obviously knew the area well. We went to parts of the lakes we had never heard of. How he managed to get the minibus round some of the roads made me glad I wasn't driving. He changed the itinerary of the tour to take advantage of the different weather conditions of the day to get the most out of the scenery. Well recommended.
