My husband and I loved the tour. The hotels were very nice and convenient to walking places. Never felt rushed. We had beautiful weather. Our driver and guide - Barney was very interesting in his commentary and he was lots of fun. We're thinking about going to Scotland with Rabbies maybe next year. We liked the fact that is was a small tour group. Great vacation. Charlene Wertz
nice tour !
Everything went smoothly and I enjoyed every part of the trip. Most particularly, I was extremely pleased with our guide, Jeff Cormack, who was very informative, funny, and who made the miles fly with anectodes of particular places along the way. I will recommend the tour to my friends in the US.

Great tour in spite of heavy rain at the start of the first two days. Great driving Geoff and I really appreciated your informative commentary. B and B s were excellent especially the Ivanhoe in Falmouth. So welcoming and helpful. Loved Cornwall. The drive from Lands End to st Ives quite beautiful. The last day was very long, another night would have broken the journey and improved the trip. All in all, an excellent tour, highly recommend it.
Excellent tour with excellent driver/guide...could not expect anything better. Strongly recommended.
Ambrose did a great job managing an eclectic group of people. He used good judgement for our stops and did a good job gauging the interests of the customers. There was a dropping of the ball on someone's part regarding my reservation in Falmouth, but Ambrose sorted it out efficiently. The Falmouth-Cornwall leg of the trip was superior to the Exeter-Devon leg in my opinion. Overall a good experience and plenty of opportunities for exercise and being outdoors.
Super tour! Lots of fun, wonderful tour guides, well planned and orchestrated, fun people, with lots of laughter and by the end of the tour felt as if we were all friends. The places were so exciting to see that there wasn't nearly enough time at each place but on a 5 day tour what else can you do...I highly recommend this tour and if they ever increase it to 7/8 days definitely go for it! Thank you for such a wonderful experience.
We enjoyed every minute of our yourney, our quide was a good driver and excelent quide.
The trip was a whirlwind of delights...from Dorset to Devon to Cornwall and all the places before and after. We really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend this tour as a way to enjoy the English countryside with a super safe driver and excellent running commentary, coupled with helpful kindness along the way. Thank you all.
I would highly urge you to take this tour. Our guide Kevin was great. He told us interesting facts along the way plus gave us plenty of time to explore each site. We saw so much of Devon and Cornwall. It was beautiful. The B and Bs were nice, especially in Exeter. The days just flew by. You will love this tour.
