Lake District & Afternoon Tea (Escorted, 1st Class)

Service rating : The tour group Mountain Goat was brilliant. The guide's knowledge was thorough and his care of us and our comfort was impeccable. I would suggest that taking the train in First Class was the nicest thing I could have done for myself. Virgin Trains service was amazing.
