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.

I went to Lake District after spending time in Edinburgh and the highland. So I thought I have seen it all but I still find Lake District is stunningly beautiful, with lakes and pretty building dated as far back as 1200s. The town where the Windermere train station is located is simple but you can walk further down to see the pretty Windermere lake or choose to live in other town of Lake District. I had only 2 days 1 night there so I engaged a private tour. My guide, David is very knowledgeable as he shared history of the various lakes, towns and off the beaten track area that we visited. Allow him to lead and he will bring you to the best places. I really enjoy my tour of Lake District and plan to return again with a longer stay.

I recommend a visit George Fisher shoe shop (I got a pair of very good shoe there) and the Grasmere famous gingerbread shop (I am not a fan of gingerbread cookies but theirs is so special). And do consider to visit the stone ridge which predated as far back as the Stonehenge.

I will recommend at least 2 nights stay.

Thank you for your positive review and comments. The George Fisher shop is an excellent shop for outdoor clothing and hiking shoes. We look forward to welcoming you again the next time you visit the Lake District.

David is a spectacular guide who is so friendly and funny. He's very accommodative too. My parents and I had a wonderful time going around the Lake District.

The car was comfortable and we got very lucky with the weather as it was sunny when David drove us up to a fantastic view for photos.

We also thank him a lot for introducing us to Grasmere Gingerbread - we went back the next day just to get more.

Overall 10/10 experience and highly recommend David for a private tour of the Lake District!

David was a terrific guide - very informed and informative, a nice sense of humour and a clear passion for ensuring his passengers gain as much as possible fom the tour, whatever their age or mobility. He's knowledgeable about the area, its history and landscape and it was a treat to spend part of our day with him.

This was a terrific experience! David has great knowledge of the Lakes Region, a pleasant personality and we thoroughly enjoyed our full day with him. David adjusted our itinerary based on sites we wanted to see and eliminated stops we had already visited. This was a very personalized tour and we had the opportunity to see gardens, waterfalls, and homes off the normal path. We had the opportunity to visit popular Wordsworth sites as well as less common sites. As seasoned travelers, we highly recommend this tour and tour group. Excellent!

Very relaxing and informative way to see highlights of the Lake District. Highly recommended if you’re on a short break and never been before as there’s a lot of beautiful places to see, or if your family aren’t much for walking of course!
David knows his stuff and loves the area so is always very positive about where he takes you and despite doing these tours many times remains very enthusiastic about ensuring you get to see the best of the area.

First time visiting Windermere, hotel booked us a private tour with David of Brooklyn Tours. We couldn’t have been more pleased. David was extremely knowledgeable about the area and took us to places we could have never accessed on our own. Because of the rewarding experience we were truly able to experience the Lake District!

Excellent day, David was very knowledgable about the area and tailored the trip to suit our needs on the day, with history and tidbits of information, as well as the odd joke, to keep us informed and entertained for the whole day. The vehicle was immaculately clean and tidy and David was very helpful in arranging to meet. Would highly recommend.

Four of us did an eight hour tour with David and it was fantastic. Being intimidated by the narrow roads, British driving, and an over reliance on Google Maps, we were so pleased to have David in charge. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the Lake District and took us everywhere. What a great introduction to this beautiful area. David really made our visit special, we can’t wait to return.
