Tony picked us up exactly on time from our hotel and took my wife and I, together with 4 other passengers, on the 10 Lakes Tour. His bus was comfortable, clean and tidy and he drove steadily throughout the day whilst giving an excellent running commentary. This was our second trip in 3 years with Tony as the driver and...

Our party of 4 were picked up from our hotel, which was great. I'm a nervous passenger after a mountain trip in Spain 35 years ago. Well I had no need to worry, Tony our driver/guide put me at ease within 15 minutes, a voice made for the job, pitch was calming and clear. Tour coach was clean, comftable, and... More

Last Monday (20th March 2017) my family and I took the Yorkshire Dales tour with Lee, our friendly driver/guide. The tour proved to be both visually breathtaking and informative. Although we visited and stopped at numerous locations the pacing of the tour was not rushed thanks to Lee's professionalism. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we would definitely recommend it... More

Tony took us on a wonderful tour of 10 lakes of the Lake District. We went up some narrow little roads and got some great views from high up. He's very knowledgeable and went beyond the "call of duty" to show us things we'd never have seen otherwise.

Pick up at your accommodation is very handy. The driver/guide had an extensive knowledge and the lakes/villages visited are beautiful! You get time to take some photos and 1hr lunch (we went to have tea and cakes after walking around for a bit) Really enjoyed the tour and would not have been able to do it on our own in... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our 10 lake tour. Tony out driver was friendly and knowledgeable and made sure there were plenty of stops for photo opportunities. Tour goes places i would never find myself on roads that I wouldn't want to drive on so well worth the outlay! Thank you

Our family had organised a personalised trip for my wife and myself to celebrate my 70th birtjhday. Having been on many sightseeing trips this was by far the best. Our driver was extremely knowledgable but didnt overload you with too much detail.This meant that you actually took things in. He added little bits of info which only he knew and... More

Joined the half day winter Southern Highlights tour in February and had a fantastic day out with our driver/guide Peter F. The tour took in some beautiful scenery including, the Langdale Valley, Tarn Hows and Hawkshead village. There was also time for a refreshment stop at the Bluebird cafe in Coniston. Peter made plenty of stops for us to take... More
