Myself and six other friends took the Lakes Tour and loved it. We didn't want to have to drive on the narrow curvy roads and have the driver miss the sights. This way all of us could take in the sights of the beautiful Lake District. It was a lovely day and we enjoyed the cruise on the lake, as well.

It's hard to ruin a small bus tour of the Lake District - but the 10 Lake Spectacular Tour we took with Mountain Goat Day Tours out of Windermere on June 1st was really a disappointment. First the sound system on the bus was nonexistent - or the guide was mumbling so badly that we could only hear about 1/2 of what he was saying. Compared with other tours we took in the UK this guide seemed incredibly indifferent. There was no suggestion that people on the bus refrain from using their cell phones, turn off the pinging of incoming text messages, or turn off the sound of iphone games -- all of these distractions combined to make this the worst tour we took during our 2 week trip.

My mother and I did the whole day Ten Lake Spectacular tour in early June 2011. We were blessed with a lovely, sunny day which enhanced all the views. Our driver (and guide), Peter, a resident for 40 years who is a rock climbing instructor and keen fell walker, was wonderful. Peter kept up a continuous, informative and funny patter throughout the tour that was never boring or repetitive. It was a great way to see the Lake District. We went to a number of remote places on roads that I would have hesitated to drive myself. Thank goodness for Peter and Mountain Goat tours. I'd happily go on another of their tours - and they have many so there's something for everyone.

We booked a bespoke tour for my 40th with 11 friends and were completely taken away by how well planned this tour was. We know the lakes very well but our friends visiting do not so we wanted something that would show off this lovely place to its true potential. We were not disappointed but overwhelmed by the views we were shown and the knowledge of out tour guide Jim. My day was made spectacular and I can not recommend this company enough. Thank you, it was brilliant
