After 103 days closed, on 4th July 2020 we reopened our doors and our minibuses took to the road once again.
Reopening again after the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic meant we had to implement many new measures and procedures, and we were reopening with a whole new business model and plan.
Before reopening we were accredited by Visit Britain with the ‘We’re Good to Go’ kitemark which is a official UK signal that tourism businesses have worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidance on cleanliness and social distancing. A full list of the new measures and procedures we have put in place are available on our website under our Book with Confidence page. Measures include reduced capacity on our minibuses, increased cleaning, freely available free masks, and hand sanitiser on each vehicle.
We have reopened with a reduced tours to begin with, in the Lake District we are operating our full day scheduled Ten Lakes Spectacular and High Adventure tours daily as well as a half day scheduled Best of the Lake District tour. From Manchester, Liverpool, and Chester, we are operating a Lake District tour daily. In York we have the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors & Whitby tour available each week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday.
Our Private tours are perfect for you and your family bubble to explore our regions National Parks with our own exclusive driver-guide. We will create, organise, and make your dream itinerary a reality.

We are pleased to say, we are thrilled with how the ‘new normal’ approach has been received by our passengers and team alike.
