Matt, our guide for the day was excellent. His knowledge of the area left us feeling we really knew about all the places we visited. The size of the bus meant we could get around easily.
I left a package on the bus and Eas able to collect it the next day.I would not hesitate in recommending Rabbies tours to fellow travelers

Eoin our tour guide was funny, happy, informative and nothing was any trouble. He even sang for us which was not so great ... maybe he can work on that. The day trip was excellent and I loved it.
