    What to Expect
    If you have time for only one tour then this private tour is the most varied and complete exploration of the Lake District possible on a one day tour with high mountain passes, stone circles, spectacular waterfalls and ten lakes - a tour to remember!

    Never ones to follow a crowd your driver guide will make sure the tour is full of unique and special moments such as walking amongst ‘Wordsworth’s daffodils’ or standing below Aira Force. Your local driver guides add that extra something to make your tour unique to you with a flexible itinerary that takes account of local conditions.

    The tour will not ignore the deservedly popular beauty spots such as ‘surprise view’ and Grasmere but mix this up with hidden gems that will take your breath away.

    Refreshment stops on this tour are equally special and you are offered a chance to experience a true ‘taste of Lakeland’ whether it is homemade ice cream or traditional Herdwick lamb stew – did you know the best homemade scones and cakes are made in the Lake District? On market days and when group size dictates you may stop at the market town of Keswick for lunch. Lunch is not included in the tour fee but wherever you go it is available at excellent value for money!

    This tour gets off the beaten track on a breathtakingly beautiful drive that clings to the lake shoreline of Buttermere and Crummock Water.

    More lakes, Grasmere, gingerbread and the option of a cruise on Lake Windermere finish a remarkable day out.

    To get the most out of this tour it helps if you can walk on uneven ground for 15- 20 minutes; please do not wear high heels and it's recommended to bring a windproof jacket.
