This day trip to Lake Mountain was one of the best tours we have experienced. Our tour operator (Lewis/ Louis) did a fantastic job of guiding us through the day. We were very lucky to experience an afternoon of falling snow and the scenery was breath-taking. Our driver was very calm, and showed great experience when driving home in icy conditions, I felt comfortable that he had it under control. Fantastic day, loved every minute and my husband and I agreed that our guide was one of the most competent, friendly young men we had ever met. He really made the day enjoyable and stress free. I would do this tour again in a heart - beat!. Thank you so very much for a great day.
This tour was amazing!
we all enjoyed the day trip to Lake mountain, the children were looking forward to seeing some snow and they were not disappointed to say the least. The bus driver was very helpfull and friendly and had some good advice to share at the snowl, we all enjoyed his company! as we did at the chocolate factory on the way home, hot chocolate was recommended and was a real treat! It was a very enjoyable day all round.
