What a wonderful tour. Samuel, our tour leader/driver is fantastic. Samuel is super friendly and very likeable. He has a great knowledge of all the places you visit along with immense personal knowledge of the area. It really made a difference to know where you were and the history associated with that place. Before booking we were going to self drive but changed our mind to take the tour. Something we don't regret one bit. The tour takes you to places you wouldn't normally see if driving on your own plus the advantage of being in the comfort of the mini bus. The accomodation was also ideal for our needs. We highly recommend this tour will forever have fond memories of the experience.

We never got to experience this tour as they cancelled the week we were signed up for one month before our date. We had booked this tour almost 18 months ahead. They gave no reason. Just cancelled it. You would think that the middle of May would not be a date that would be unattended so we think that maybe they had a large group came in and wanted that week and would pay more so they bumped us out. They offered earlier and later week but we had other reservations and airline tickets etc. We had to scramble to fill the week with something. This was so despicable we can hardly find the words. Shame on you Rabbies.

We really enjoyed our 5 day tour of Devon & Cornwall with our tour guide, Christo, departing from London. Christo is polite, patient, knowledgeable, provides a lot of helpful background information and even took the time to create a playlist for each of the locations to help enhance the drive-time and give additional context to each location. We also enjoyed the two B & B's that were arranged by Rabbies- especially the Exeter Townhouse. There was a nice mix of ages and backgrounds on our tour, with plenty of space in the Mercedes touring van. Christo made everyone feel welcome and we all appreciated his knowledge level with a touch of humor! There were several amazing spots that we saw, such as the Minack theatre, area that was the setting for Poldark (Masterpiece series), and Stonehenge.

I seriously cannot rate Rabbie's highly enough. If you're considering taking one of their tours, please do!! I took another tour of theirs in Scotland in 2019 and had such a good experience that as soon as I booked another trip to England in 2022, I knew I had to travel with them again - and they did not disappoint! I haven't taken any of their day tours, but both multi-day tours I've taken were fantastic. The guides are so friendly and knowledgeable (the guide for my tour was Christo, and he was awesome!), the days are relaxed while still fitting in more sights than I could ever fit onto a self-made itinerary, and there's a friendly atmosphere on the bus. These tours are especially good for a solo traveler! I don't have a single complaint! I'll never go to England or Scotland without taking a Rabbie's tour. Thank you for all the memories!
