The next day he took us around the lake starting with a visit to the stone circles and visiting Beatrix Potter's farm. Andy had a lot of historical info about the area. I didn't realize... More

It was a pleasure to show you some of the highlights of the Lake District which could just as easily have been called the Mountain District but it is the blending of the two that makes the Lake District such a magical place to visit. All the best and thank you for touring with us, Andy More

We had two wonderful days touring with Andy of Lake District Tours. Saw the Roman fort at Hardknock Pass, the Viking cross in Gosforth, Wordsworth's home and so much more. Andy was so interesting and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend.

Couldn't have had a better time on our tour with Andy. We was informative, friendly, a great driver, and an overall excellent guide. This being said, he gave us enough room to experience the incredible beauty of the Lake District on our own a bit as well. We only had one full day to tour the area and thanks to... More

We did the Beatrix Potter Tour with Andy from Millennium Tours. We took the Virgin train from London Euston to Oxenholme Station, where Andy was waiting for us. He was an excellent guide - informative and interesting while letting the sublime beauty of the countryside speak for itself. Thanks to Andy I learned that Beatrix Potter was much more than... More

We spent a week touring with Andrew (and another guide Stephen) with two other couples after completing the Hadrian's Wall Walk. We were picked up at Bowness-on-Solway by Stephen who gave us an insight into the Lakes for a couple of days before we had five days with Andrew at the wheel travelling through the Yorkshire Dales and Peak District...

My friend and I arrived from Liverpool for the day and Andrew Binns met us at the train station. We enjoyed a small group minibus tour. We could have never done it on our own. My pictures and memories are amazing. Andrew knew just where to go and where to stop for the best views - including some dirt roads.... More

It is amazing what you can see in a day with a local guide. I am pleased you enjoyed the photo stops and whenever possible we like to take visitors to places they would not easily find on their own especially where delicious local food is concerned!

We took a tour because driving on narrow roads on the "wrong" or "opposite" side of the road is harrowing. However, this tour told us much more than we would have gotten from a tour book. We had many great views of the fells and lakes, learned about the history of the area, saw Wordsworth's tomb, ate local ice cream... More

We could not agree more! As any local will tell you the 'real' Lake District is waiting to be discovered beyond Windermere where some of the best views/experiences can be gained with a little effort. Glad you enjoyed getting off the beaten track with us and thank you for visiting. Best wishes, Andy More
