Day Tours in the Lake District and Cumbria - by minibus or coach

Organising a great day out for your group?

Have a look through the tours below and decide which one is most suitable for your group.  If you have a particular interest which isn't covered here, send me an email with your requirements.  Have a look at the section on How to Book to find out the next steps.  If you have at least 20 people in your group why not come out with me for a free taster tour?  You get to sample the day and we can discuss your particular requirements.  Naturally, as group organiser your place is free on the day as well.

Tour Operator?

If you are a tour operator bringing a coach to Cumbria, you can book me to hop on your coach and take you for a scenic drive around the Lake District. Send me a message with your requirements. Enjoy the reassurance of knowing that you have a qualified Blue Badge Guide on board and I won't take your coach down roads it isn't suitable for!

Please contact me to find out how your group could be having the best trip possible to the Lake District and Cumbria.

Individual or very small group?

Any of these tours can be run with a small group either in your own transport or I can hire a minibus.  See Private Tours for more details.  If you choose the private tour it can be designed around your own interests and the needs of your group.  

I also run some 'public' tours on certain dates where you can book as an individual.  Like my facebook page for updates on this.
