We did the Isle of Wight tour (with Dan), which was nice, and them the Cornwall & Devor tour (with Nic) which was fantastic. Nic was actually a highlight of the trip, being both knowledgable and providing intersting stories, and we loved the placed we visted, especially Dartmoor and our coastal stops. The trip (and our accomodation) were arranged perfectly, and it was a very interesting and enjoyable tour of England's south.

Great tour and a very professional, attentive, properly informed, scrupulous and fun driver/guide, Rob Walker. Beautiful stunning places to see. As far as the accomodations, the Townhouse 54 in Exeter a very charming and lovely guest house and the Membley hotel in Falmouth had a very nice and comfortable sea front bedroom and else.

The whole tour was wonderful, from the guide Rob who was kind, funny, to the places where we slept, Guest House 54 was impeccable in cleanliness and attention and the breakfast. The location of the hotel in Falmorth: Membly Hall allowed us to enjoy the sunrise and sunset overlooking the sea. Every place we visited was delightful, and Rob's passion for showing us every secret and hidden corner of Cornwall helped make this an unforgettable trip. Thanks

The tour & our guide John were terrific. We really liked that we had the choice between hotels or bed & breakfast places. Also, it was nice that we stayed in towns more than just one night so we had a chance to get comfortable. Additionally, we had the opportunity to see a lot (and we did); however, other people on the tour didn't want to do everything, and there were cafes and shops they could visit if they wanted a different experience. Great guide/driver, super hotel choices and lots of interesting sites. We will be back to tour with Rabbies!

We really enjoyed every minute of this tour — the hike in Dartmoor National Park, the visit to Stonehenge, seeing Tintagel Castle & learning more about the King Arthur legends, charming Boscastle Village, the amazing Minack Theatre, & St. Ives. And there were special moments along the way, where we stopped to experience when something really interesting was nearby - like the ladies in the horse carriage raising funds for Ukraine, the new age group at Gwennap Pit, the Daphne du Maurier history at Jamaica Inn, or the Abbey in fascinating Glastonbury. Our guide was terrific, & we loved having Draco as a mascot!

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.
