The Lake District – Keswick Boat Trip from Liverpool

What are people saying about us?
Lake District *****
My husband and I had an amazing time in the Lake District. It is an area in the mountains with stunning nature, pure air and beautiful village. It is an opportunity to run away of the reality, get a lovely air and have fun with friends. Everything was perfect: the staff was lovely, good organization. I highly recommend this trip.
