“Our 9 lake tours experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

We were a family of four and booked this tour in advance with Andy Binns and made full advance payment. We did this tour on 4th of May. We were picked up from our hotel on time. It was a 10 seater and we were accompanied by a Japaneese group of 4. Our experience was just wonderful.
Steve was our guide and he did a wonderful job keeping us busy and entertained. The route was really scenic and we had a great time. This is the best way to see a good part of Lake District in one day. We did this tour on the first day of our itenary and hence could go back to some of the really nice spots like Grasmere Dove cottage etc later. During the the day my sister fell sick with motion sickness. It was a Sunday and most of the pharmacies are closed. Steve went out of his way to find one for us in Keswick and she got the medicine which was so timely. THANKS A TON STEVE....really appreciate this gesture.

Thank you for your review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your tour. I was sorry to hear your sister had motion sickness and hope it did not spoil her enjoyment of the Lake District. The roads in the Lake District are seldom straight and motion sickness sometimes can happen. Taking a seat up front and talking with your driver can often help and I am pleased Steve could help out on this occasion.
Thank you again for your visit.

“Lovely tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

This tour is a great way to see a good taste of the Lake District. Andy was our driver and was a great source of information. The tour size was small so great - the only thing was we picked a seat at the back of the van which can make it a bit difficult to see - but no major thing and I would still recommend them.

Thank you for your review. We try to stop as often as possible to minimise the 'back seat effect' and are experimenting with rotating seating between stops which can help where passengers are willing.
Thank you again and we are pleased you enjoyed your tour.

“Lovely day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

We booked an all day excursion and we were not disappointed, We were the only ones booked (early on in season) and we had to pay a supplement but it was worth it We had a great day out with our driver think his name was Andy, it was on March 22nd we had all weather types on that day rain snow hail and sun. He was extremely polite and helpful and knowledgeable about the area. As we were the only ones it was tailored to our needs. We have a great day out it was more like going out with a friend showing us the sights.It made a nice change for my husband who actually got to look at the views. I don't think we would have ever have found a place called surprise point? the view was awesome.

This is the right tour for exploring Lake district.

Although we were unlucky to arrive on a rainny day, this group is expert in finding the best way to explore the area.

From scenery to stories to mysteries......all these added up to make a great tour!
