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
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.
This was a wonderful trip through beautiful country. Our driver/guide, Jamie was knowedgeable, friendly, and patient with the group. He is a terrific person and he kept us going and kept us happy at all times. We would recommend this trip to anyone and hope to be able to do it again some day.
Our tour guide was pleasant, knowledgable and competent. It was a good pace and we saw many lovely places. The hotels were excellent, especially in Falmouth.
The tour was fantastic, 5 days of a grand tour of devon and cornwell, the weather was kind to us, 2 days of a slight drizzle of rain,and 3 beautiful sunny days, it was great to stay in Exeter and Falmouth for two nights and the hotels we stayed at were great, the highlight was going to St Ives, it was just beautiful, Lands End could be given a miss, it's just an amusement park, there was enough free time on the tour , to find your own places to eat, all in all highly recommended.
There's no other way I could have seen as much, traveling with a small bus tour like this is definitely the way to do it. I recommend being specific on your physical requirements when booking - you may not want to carry your suitcase up 6 floors like one couple on my tour had to do.
One of the best, well organized short tour we have ever taken.
The itinerary was just right, the bus companions all very compatible and enjoyable to be with and Steve the driver/guide did his very best to keep us all happy. He is to be particularly commended.
Finally, the accommodations exceeded our expectations.
A "well done" to all.

The trip was excellent. Transport was very comfortable, excellent driver/guide. Accommodation was also very good. The group consisted of 12 people in total - a good number to travel with for 5 days. Our guide was truly excellent in meeting everyone's needs, very informative with historical and local facts, interesting and funny without going over the top.
We were very lucky with the weather - dry, warm and sunny most of the time.
All our expectations were met. Geoff was an outstanding driver, especially down those narrow lanes. He was superbly efficient in managing us , our luggage and our accommodation pick-ups. He was enthusiastic, experienced and knowledgeable about the highlights of the trip without being too chatty. The organisation by Rabbies was thoroughly professional throughout.
Enjoyed the trip immensely. Nice sizeice group (15) and wonderful accommodations. Skillful driver. Only suggestion for improvement is that the tour leader give us a little more historical and other info before each destination and use the microphone.
What a tremendous opportunity we had joining this tour, guided by VJ/Dave, who is extremely knowledgable and passionate about history and the areas we visited. The days were chock full of wonderful learning opportunities and exquisite sites. The accommodations could not have been better. We are already planning our future tours with the provider. Thanks, Viator, for connecting us.
Lovely trip into the Devon and Cornwall countryside. Hotel accommodations were very good and the guide , Kevin, was outstanding. I liked the freedom and choices for lunches and dinners. There were opportunities for short hikes or to just watch others hike.
Looking forward to another trip on the next England visit.
This trip was excellent. Flexible enough so that if the Group wanted to see some thing extra. Time was there to do so. The accommodation was fantastic. Close to restaurants and the city in Exeter.
If you want to make sure you see more of England than just London, I highly recommend this tour. This is a small-group tour that is, aside from the bus rides, almost entirely self-guided. This type of tour is perfect for travelers (like us) who like to wander and explore independently. Our tour guide (Peter) was full of information about England in general, as well as the specific areas we were visiting. He was very talkative and funny, so that made some of the long drives go faster. The Devon and Cornwall regions are absolutely amazing, and this trip offers the perfect combination of English countryside and coastline.

It was wonderful! Was very enjoyable and had lots of fun and lots of ice cream! Owen, he is not just a guide, he was very nice, kind, helpful, humorous, an excellent driver, very accommodating, informative and lots of fun! Visited lots of beautiful places. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
Our tour guide was Peter and he made the trip very enjoyable! He was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited and he was an excellent driver. I have been on many bus tours within the United States and Canada and he was the best guide I've ever had! The scenery was so beautiful too and the bus was comfy.
The tour was outstanding. Our tour guide, Owen, made the trip memorable and enjoyable. His knowledge and spirit were amazing. Cornwall and Devon are beautiful, historic and intriguing. From Dartmoor to the coasts, we saw things we will never forget. Further, adding Glastonbury, on the last day, was great. Our traveling philosophy has always been, see a lot of a little. This tour certainly fit the bill.
