About Us


We’re Gillian and David, owners of Bluebird Tours, Coniston and How Head holiday cottages.

Having worked in and around the Lake District collectively for over 40 years and now residing on the east side of Coniston Water, we love exploring the incredible landscape on our doorstep; the Lakeland wildlife, forests, lakes and mountains.

Inspired by the ever-changing seasons, we take full advantage of the delights on offer in this most beautiful corner of England.

David’s passion for local history, sailing, fishing, exploration, and travel makes him the perfect local tour operator and guide. He relishes every opportunity to share his vast knowledge and experience with others.

Gillian is an artist who also enjoys working in the tourism and hospitality industry. She runs their successful holiday cottage business and takes care of Bluebird tour bookings and accounts.

Together we share an unbridled enthusiasm for this area and would love to discuss your Lake District and UK travel requirements with you. Get in touch.

Our Services

Bluebird Tours commenced operations in 2012 with an aim to provide high quality, value-for-money, informative guided tours around the Lake District.

We now offer a full range of services including executive travel, corporate outings, rail and airport transfers, as well as providing convenient transport for wedding guests and those celebrating a special occasion.

We're the experts at people moving!

Our Tours

We are specialists in Lake District Tours and can prepare a Bespoke Tour for you and your group for up to 16 people.

Design your own Lake District Adventure!

Our Bespoke Tours are perfect if you have places that you want to visit or if there's somewhere that holds a particular interest for you.

Want to go further afield? Just ask, we arrange tours across the UK too.

Our Vehicles

We are particularly aware of the environment within which we operate, and we strive to protect it for the future.

Hybrid and electric vehicles are not viable for us at present, but we do everything we can to minimise our carbon footprint including using vehicles with highly-efficient diesel engines and systems to reduce engine pollutants.

When clients utilise our services, they too are helping to protect the Lake District by leaving their cars behind and letting us take the strain of driving.

Here to help...
