    A day to remember!
    What a day! Our tour guide Mark introduced us to a world of mountains and lakes, The views were spectacular, and the information Mark imparted was both interesting and educational. Mark never rushed anyone getting on and off the coach at each stop in our days journey, yet we still managed fill the day with magnificent views of the peaks and valleys of the lake district. But the highlight of the day for me, as I am an ancient history buff, was the final stop at Castlerigg stone circle. Wow! We can certainly say we'll be booking anotherMountain Goat tour on our next trip here. Thank you Mark for a day to remember!

    Wonderful Lakes tour
    We had a fantastic day touring the lakes. The guide/driver was extremely informative and interesting to listen to. The stops were well spread out and provided great opportunities for photos, food and drink and comfort breaks. We did this on our first day and it was a great preview to see which places we wanted to explore more during the rest of our trip. Highly recommended.

    Excellent tour of the Lake District
    We toured the Lake District with Duncan. He was personable and very knowledgeable of the area, it’s history, geography, and famous residents. The van was comfortable and we saw much more than we could have on our own. As it was a bank holiday, the roads were very busy, so it was nice to have someone else drive. Thank you Duncan for a great day.

    Another great stay at Brierholme
    Our third visit to Brierholme and it definitely won’t be our last. Jonathon and Adam are superb hosts and go out of their way to ensure guests are happy. The house is beautifully decorated and the rooms have everything you would need. Plenty of choice at breakfast and delicious food will set you up for the day. Really convenient for the town centre (5 minute stroll) and free parking is an added bonus. Highly recommended you won’t be disappointed.

    Excellent experience
    Great day out, beautiful scenery. Bus picked up at our hotel on time and we were met by our tour guide Mark. The whole day was interactive and very interesting, we were taken around the lakes which was amazing but the tour was taken to another level by Marks knowledge of the area and his approach to us and our enjoyment of the day. By far the best tour guide i have ever had the opportunity to meet. I would definitely recommend this tour to anybody visiting the lake district. Thanks Mark you made our tour enjoyable from start to finish

    I read the reviews before booking and can see why it’s been highly recommended. Our driver Duncan was very knowledgable and friendly. Full day approx 7.5 hours but worth it being able to see some sites you wouldn’t get to see without a guide. Just the right amount of breaks and stops. Stunning scenery with minimal walking which was good for us.

    Great tour around the lakes. Derek is a fountain of knowledge with great wit to make the day very enjoyable. Great way to see a snapshot of the Lakes which we will now use to help us choose what to do with the rest of our time in this beautiful part of the world.

    Fabulour Tour- highly recommended
    What a fabulous tour, I was just glad that I wasn't driving. We've had many trips to the northern lakes and have visited several of the places included on this tour but- not having to drive and listening to the interesting tour commentary provided another layer of detail to the enjoyment of all these lovely places.

    Great day out made the journey from flat Essex worth while
    My wife and I have just completed this tour with Peter Walker our guide. This trip far out weighed our expectations, we have been on many excellent excursions in Europe and this stands along with those. Peter was both an excellent driver on difficult roads and a great guide , his knowledge was excellent. The stops Peter took us to gave great vantage points for photos. The trip certainly settled our minds to come back again to the area and use this tour company. Thanks so much Peter you have made our day.

A fantastic day out learning about the history of the Lake District.

Kevin our guide and driver was very knowledgeable and took us on some beautiful scenic routes.
We stopped at various locations to get some beautiful photos.

We even stopped at Muncaster Castle to watch a bird show which was possibly one of the best bird shows I’ve seen.

A great experience and highly recommended.

We had a fantastic day on the High Adventure Day tour. We were blessed with both perfect weather and a capable and professional driver. Duncan had a wealth of knowledge to share and was very accommodating and friendly. We wouldn't have liked to drive on those skinny, bendy roads so it was wonderful to sit back and let Duncan worry about the reversing, passing and steep gradients. The bus was pristine and the route chosen took us to some very scenic locations. We had adequate stops for photos and comfort and enjoyed every moment.

This was our third trip on the Mountain Goat High Adventure tour and our first with Derek as our driver/guide. The whole day was excellent and we learnt a lot of new facts from Derek, particularly about the Roman Fort on Hardknott Pass. We stopped at the Brookhouse Inn at Boot for lunch (which was excellent) and then on to Muncaster Castle which, apart from the birds display, was a bit disappointing. Overall, an excellent and enjoyable day.

We started our day at930 am looking forward to an exciting time. Our driver Malcolm was very informative all day as we went over the high passes to breath taking views . We stopped for a quick lunch then boarded the steam train, we then stopped at muncaster castle watched a bird of prey display meandered through the gardens they back home through more passes a thoroughly great day . Will be using goat tours again thoroughly professional.

We spent a lovely day with Kevin our driver, who has rich knowledge of the district and kept us captivated by the unfolding history, pointing out places that were not easily noticed, and sharing lore and stories for every area we visited. Very high winds kept us off the highest passes today but the tour was modified by Kevin and included other delightful stops and a boat ride. We highly recommend Mountain Goat tours. There are never more than 16 people and the busses are small enough they can travel the smaller roads. There were plenty of stops and time for lunch. A great introduction to the Lake District and excellent value! We were picked up in Keswick for this tour.

This really was the most enjoyable day. Kevin the driver / guide was the perfect host. Informative with the right balance of humour to lighten the day. His skill at navigating the high passes was very impressive. They are not for the faint hearted and are a challenge in the car but he made it look easy.

This tour takes in some of the most stunning and remote parts of the lakes. Plenty of opportunity for photos too.

Even better was the opportunity to ride on the superb Laal Ratty steam train and to see the spectacular bird of prey show at Muncaster Castle - all included in the tour price.

Would recommend to friends...definitely!

Superb tour company that was recommended by our hotel host. Our driver, DEREK, was nothing short of fantastic. He was very personable in explaining things throughout the journey, offering personal insight and demonstrating precision driving that many wouldn't be able to manage. He was clear and concise to our fellow tourists in what time they needed to return enroute to our next stop. He's an asset to this business and you'd be fortunate if he was your guide. I think this tour exceeded our expectations and the views were extraordinary.

We did the High Adventure Tour and what a great day it was. I usually drive around these places but can miss a lot of the scenery, so this time we decided to take a tour. We met the mini bus at the central car park in Keswick which took us to the tours official start point at Windamere. This extra 25 mile journey only cost an extra fiver. Would have cost a lot more for petrol and parking. We also booked the packed lunch which was fine.our driver was a lovely chap, Tony ( Scott) I think, very knowledgeable and a very careful driver. He gave us plenty of photo stops and could answer all our questions. He knew all the best photo opportunities. After the high points we boarded the Ravenglass railway for a twenty minute ride and then reboarded the bus which was waiting. So off to Muncaster Castle, what a beautiful place. With seventy acres and the flying display we could have spent the day there. The cafe was very cheap compared to other similar ones and good quality food. We then stopped at Coniston although by then it was raining quite hard. All in all a brilliant day.
