We recently completed a visit to England, spending five days in York for part of our trip. As we had a rental car, I contemplated undertaking a driving tour of the Dales ourselves—but I am so glad we did not. We had a wonderful experience on the day long Mountain Goat tour of

Hello ramueller23, Thank you for your lovely review of our Yorkshire Dales tour. We're very happy you had such a fantastic time out in the national park with us and that you enjoyed Lee's company and commentary! It's always brilliant to hear our passengers rate our tours so highly and we're honoured to be one of the "most memorable" highlights of your visit to the UK. Hopefully we'll see you again if you visit England in the future. Best wishes, Mountain Goat

The tour is in stunningly beautiful rural landscape. It was well worth doing. The tour guide (JJ) was knowledgeable about a wide range of history and geology and did so in a very interactive way without relying on a monologue type of presentation.

Small group size made for an almost intimate guided tour. Our driver / guide (Lee) was a wealth of knowledge and provided a comprehensive commentary throughout the day. Being a smaller group, people felt comfortable asking questions and Lee was able to answer them all ranging

The reason I booked this tour was because many of the reviews on here mentioned how great it was to have a local driver who could share a wealth of knowledge about the area. As the tour departed the driver informed us he was called in to cover this tour from the Lake District.

Hello Stephanie R, Let me start off by saying we are sorry you felt as though you had such a poor experience with our company. It is our policy that if a tour is booked by even one person, we send it (unless we have absolutely no choice). In response to your comments about your driver, Geoff, we simply cannot believe that "no local info" was shared as not only does Geoff know an awful lot about the Yorkshire Dales from living on the border of the national park, he also regularly drives our Yorkshire Dales tour from Windermere which leaves every Wednesday. Also, had you let us know you would have preferred to take the tour on a different day we would have done everything we could to accommodate you. However, as nothing was brought to either ours or Geoff's attention at the start or during your tour we sadly could do nothing. Our drivers are all notified about road closures and traffic issues by head office, however, as they are constantly evolving due to different areas flooding it is impossible to keep our drivers up to date during their tour. This is because they could be driving and cannot legally or safely check their mobile phones. Having spoken to Geoff he has told us your tour had one necessary diversion which had no drastic effect on the time schedules and you still had plenty of time to stop at different places, including; Ripon Cathedral for 15 minutes, Jervaulx abbey for 30, Reeth for an hour, Castle Bolton for 20, Aysgarth Falls for 15 and Grasington for 30 minutes. He has also said that the majority of his passengers enjoyed the tour, even giving him a round of applause at the end. It is regrettable you feel as though your day panned out differently to your fellow passengers, but as mentioned, without us knowing on the day we cannot attempt to rectify any issues. Best Wishes, Mountain Goat
