We took three tours, HIgh Adventure, Ullswater, and Ten Lakes. They were all wonderful, fast-paced tours that showed the full beauty for the Lake District. Carol, Tony, and Derek were wonderful guides that shared loads of information. Loved every minute!

Kevin was our driver. A really personable driver. Knew the roads and sights well. Nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend him and Mountain Goat who drove us to Hilltop and back.
