    I really enjoyed the 5 day trip to Wales! It was my first tour with Rabbies, and I couldn't be happier. the small group size was great and we all got along super well by the last night... we didn't want it to end. Rob and his trusty sidekick Draco was helpful and full of so much knowledge! I would travel with them again!

    My boyfriend and I were on tour together and afterwards I'd say it was an interesting experience yet it was not spectacular. I've been to Costwolds and Cheltenham and also travelled around Europe and I believe the villages are quite the same. There were only 5 people in our group and Marc -the driver, so the trip was quite comfortable and the guide told us couple of jokes and interesting things while traveling. However, it was not very easy to find the right car at the very beginning of the tour as there were no signs or people waiting for us. And I also wished to hear the schedule as we set off however it was a big surprise for me to realize we were coming to Avebury first. So here's my schedule. 9:20 leaving Victoria 11:45 reaching Avebury 12:45 leaving Avebury 13:00 r. Lackock 14:00 l. Lackock 14:30 r. Bath 16:30 l. Bath 20:00 r. London I'd say there was a lot of time driving and we didn't know what to do in the villages - there were only stones and bars, and one museum.

The tour was very nice, the problem we had was that the other tourists were Americans and Australians (therefore native English speakers), the guide, very good, however, spoke very quickly and our school English did not allow us to understand almost anything. We would like to repeat another experience with your organization perhaps always in England, do the guides always speak only English? Thanks Raul Sandro

Outstanding cultural and historical tour of central and western Wales

Dan provided an outstanding cultural and historical tour of Wales through his witty humor and vast knowledge of the area. We enjoyed soaking up the scenery from picturesque back country lanes to villages bordering the sea, castles, manor houses, and quaint market towns. Dan was not only our guide, but a new found friend!! It’s a tour we’ll never forget and will cherish always.

Excellent!

Liked the idea of travelling in small groups, as allows more flexibility and personal attention. Our guide from Rabbies - Russel, was knowledgeable and kept us informed and entertained throughout the tour. Look forward to the next trip with them soon.

superb day Marc the driver/tour guide made the whole trip enjoyable.
