Andrew was a excellent and informative guide who shared his extensive knowledge of the northern lakes with us. We ended the tour feeling that we had been shown this beautiful part of Lakeland as only a native of the area could have done. Thank you, Andrew, for a wonderful day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Pasherin, Thank you for your feedback and touring with me. It was a wonderful day and great to be able to get off the beaten track in the north Lakes.

If we could give more than 5 stars, we would. Our guide, Andy, was friendly, knowledgeable, entertaining, and he even laughed at our jokes. The route he took us on and the stops he suggested made our trip through the Yorkshire Dales everything we had hoped it would be. Great fun.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words! It was a pleasure to meet you all and share this beautiful part of the world.

Andy was an outstanding guide! Exceptionally informative, wonderfully helpful, and a pleasure to spend the day with. It's absolutely worth it to have a local show you around where they live and let them worry about the driving and parking. Gives you a chance to look out the window at the beautiful scenery. And he took us to so many great vistas! Beautiful area (and great food stops, too)! Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Shannon, Really pleased you enjoyed the day, what glorious weather we had! Great to meet you both and thank you for visiting All the best Andy

I never could have imagined such a great experience at Hill Top, one of the busiest sights in the Lakes. I had imagined crowds upon crowds of people, but it was exceptionally pleasant and peaceful. I'm sure some of this was mere luck or that it wasn't full summer season, but Andy's inside knowledge certainly had a part in this great experience! Also went to other excellent sights I would otherwise not have known about. Great experience with an outstanding guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Shannon thank you for your kind comments. You certainly picked a great time of year and it was a pleasure to help you make the most of the day. Safe travels and thank you for visiting. All the best Andy

My sisters and I, one of whom is a rabid Beatrix Potter fan (she named her country property "Hilltop") had a most enjoyable tour of the sites and the district with Andrew. He was a fountain of knowledge about Potter's legacy in the district and the district itself. He is a very pleasant and instantly likable fellow with a relaxed manner and had a gentle but firm way of keeping us on schedule. Our van was spacious and impeccably clean. I wouldn't hesitate to engage him for another tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Deborah, thank you for your comment. Keeping you all on schedule was certainly a challenge! No seriously it was a pleasure to meet you all and have the opportunity to show you my home area. Best wishes to all Andrew

My husband and I hired Andy for two full days - one day was the Beatrix Potter tour and the other was the Lake District Explorer tour. There is no way that we could have possibly done all that we did with Andy in those two days if we had tried to do it on our own. He tailored the days to our particular interests, which included some hiking and some amazing sites. We were able to really enjoy and get the most out of our short visit thanks to Andy. We highly recommend him!

Andrew was very easy to get along with and explained everything we visited very well. He was flexible with customizing our tour to suit things we specifically wanted to see. The tour was conducted in a laid back casual pace.

Andy was a fantastic tour guide. Not only was he able to keep me away from the masses of tourists, he showed me tons spectacular scenery. He also knew copious amounts of the history of the areas he took me to. I would wholeheartedly recommend him as a tour guide to anyone who truly wants the Lake District experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Herb, It was a pleasure to meet you and I am pleased your experience of the Lake District with me more than lived up to your expectations. It was a wonderful 3 days. Thank you for your feedback and all the best Andy

Superb day out! We wanted to go off the beaten track, to all the hidden places that a coach can't reach and where you wont find crowds, and Andy certainly did that! He drove down roads that were so narrow I would never take my car there! We found all sorts of hidden and wonderful places. Andy was attentive, knows the area like the back of his hand, pointed out all sorts of interesting things to us and was a careful and considerate driver. It was the highlight of our break. Thanks Andy

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Pauline, Thank you ever so much for your feedback and for touring the Lakes with me. It was a great day out and a pleasure to show you some of the less visited sights. I hope you can visit again! Best Regards Andy

A great experience and Andy was good plus friendly. He gave us more than we expected and was flexible to adjust to some changes in the timing/schedule. The tour itinerary is excellent and the coach is comfortable. Well done, Andy.

Andy made certain that I got to see the places I wanted to for as long as I wanted to, out of the norm taking me to Ruskin's house, Rydall Falls, Dove Cottage exhibition as well as the places artists painted in the breathtaking environment of the Lakes District. I highly recommend Andy and his ability to shape your personal tour as you wish.Also he is knowledgeable, friendly and a good traveling companion. Was well worth the $$ and I got a full day's tour with no omissions. Wonderful person and great guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Janice, Glad you enjoyed it and it was a pleasure to meet you. I hope you can visit again. All the best Andy

Andy is a great guide! Our day with him was definitely the highlight of our time in the Lake District, worth every penny. We had the opportunity to see some real hidden gems off the tourist trail, we had the opportunity for a few nice walks, a great boat trip -- a million times better than the small group tour we took the following day, where we felt like herded cattle. I highly recommend private touring and Andy specifically!
