English Lake District Tours
Welcome to the web site of Blue Badger Tours, a small company specialising in tailored tours of the English Lake District and its surrounding area including Hadrian's Wall. The company is owned and operated by Tom McCafferty
- a registered Blue Badge Driver Guide. The company's aim is to combine the sheer beauty of the Lake District landscape with the history which lies within the area's many magnificent buildings, quaint villages and historic sites. By offering guided walks and luxury tours, we hope to share our enthusiasm for one of the most idyllic areas in the country at a price which is surprisingly affordable.
Tom is available to drive and guide groups of all sizes in either a luxury MPV or a minibus for larger groups. For those parties already with a coach and driver, Tom can also guide from your own transport.
Please browse through our pages to learn more of who we are and what we can offer. Alternatively you can e-mail any queries or telephone Tom on 01229 774939.
