Fabulous tour! We saw some of, undoubtedly, the most beautiful parts of the English countryside. Just the right amount of background info, then the freedom to explore on our own.

Great tour, especially the day in north Wales. Kevin, our guide, was terrific. Our only comment was it was not long enough. We would have loved more time in Lincoln and Cambridge. The accommodation was terrific and while we were busy, we were never stressed. I would highly recommend.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

have read so much about the small group tour and so we booked ourselves to join this new tour. was pleasantly surprised that there was only three of us in the first class minivan. our driver/guide Kevin was very knowledgeable and drove us very safely. he gave us time to explore and even drove along very scenic spots which i think a big bus wouldnt be able to go through. the places visited each had its own charm my only complaint is that there's not enough time in wales where you get to visit conwy castle. there's so much more to see but i guess we have to leave after an hour and a half to visit next destination. you get to go to 3 various places where you stop each day. we were able to see a lot in the limited time but had to sacrifice lunch and just eat sandwiches/fruits at the van. overall had a great time would recommend Rabbie's which is the operator of these small group tours,

It was a beautiful trip. I think it should be turned into a 5 day, 4 night trip so we would have more time. I felt rushed during the entire trip and we had to grab a sandwich to eat on the bus for lunch. The trip is very pamoramic and charming.. We were a mall group of 5 women and we got along beautifully.


4 star rating: Recommended August 2016

A lot of driving but the sites were very interesting. For a shorter trip the greater London area may have the essential touring stops you are looking for but perspective is broader, if similar with respect to cathedrals and castles however Conway has a flavor unique from the tower of London as do some of the cathedrals and Chatsworth has a garden transcendent of the Buckingham palace experience.

Great trip! I got to see many places.

Also, I was the only one on this trip. The tour company Rabbie's still let me go on this trip.

Our itinerary was wonderful. Barney, the guide, also did a great job, was lots of fun and helped develop cohesion in the group. The hotels booked for us were charming and better than I expected. Only complaint, we were taken to the venues and dropped off and picked up, given a little information on the sites, but not given guided tours. I did expect that at least at some sites there would be guided tours. But that did not happen. I would recommend this tour however. We saw so much and had fun doing it.

We thought my sister had booked the Cotswolds trip so we were a bit disappointed at first. But with our very effervescent tour and bus driver Barney we had a great trip. Always on time and cometary very very good.I rate him 9.
