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

We spent 2 days with Andy and would highly recommend him for anyone wanting to make the most of their time in the area. Please see my comment for the Lake District Explorer tour for more details.
