    We had our trip canceled 18 hours prior to start leaving us without accommodations for four days as an option or join this above tour to give us a place to sleep. I don’t believe our Iona Mull trip was canceled for lack of accommodations on one of the nights. I think it was a low show as this 5Day Dales but us forced in made it financially acceptable to Rabbies. DECUSSATING, Our original trip was planned with purpose. To.capture that trip will cost us thousands of dollars. What a tragedy. Rabbies is off our list of usable contractors.

    This was a wonderful tour! Barney was our tour guide and he was great. Very funny, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the areas and the history. Saw some beautiful areas of England, just a small amount of Scotland on this tour. Would highly recommend!

    We could not have been more pleased with our Rabbie's tour. Our tour guide, Dom, was fun to be with, very knowledgable, and thoughtful. The itinerary was excellent, and we enjoyed everything we saw. I can't think of anything that could have been improved upon, except the weather--if only tour operators had some control over that!!

    Actually this was an 8 day tour from London to Edinburgh. We love Don our guide who told us amazing stories and was knowledgeable. we loved the timeline and the balance between activity and rest. of course we loved the itinerary.

    A wonderful 5 days where we were able to explore the country roads and villages not just drive on main roads. Martin our driver was very entertaining and informative and allowed the trip to be flexible wherever possible. Accommodation was first rate and we left the tour feeling it had totally met our expectations. The small group number was an added bonus.

    The tour was well-planned yet allowed for flexibility, and our kind tour guide Dom was full of fascinating information and entertaining, as well. For me, the highlights were York Minster, a cruise on Lake Windermere, and the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. I highly recommend.

    My daughter and I were on a 5 day tour in the Lake district and my daughter became very ill. We had no choice but to drop off the tour. I called Rabbie's for assistance to help us get back to Edinburgh since we were in a town 40 minutes from a train station. The staff was so accommodating and they were able to have another tour guide pick up us the next day. I couldn't have been more grateful and thought what great customer service. The tour guide Jeff was so kind to call us at the hotel and pick us up the next day. We were able to pick up our tour and arrive safely in Edinburgh. I will always recommend this tour company to any of my friends!

    Andy D. Was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable. York was beautiful. Enjoyed staying in local b and b places.

    Well organised with comfortable transport and a knowledgeable, witty tour guide/driver. Accommodation option of 3 star hotels was as expected - dated but comfortable and congenially hosted. A much better option than self-driving!!
