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!

I really feel amazed on the trip.the tour manager come along with the trip and the tour guide is also nice.the tour guide woman can explain the interested legendary along the trip with clear voice .it is me who speaks English as second language understand her voice well. The tour is perfect.

Daniel is an excellent guide. My only regret is that we didn’t have him plan our whole trip. It was like seeing Stonehenge with a friend albeit an extremely knowledgeable one.

Enjoyable trip. Stonehenge is a bit lack luster. But the trip up there was very comfortable and Bath was spectacular. Would recommend!

Excellent experience, Daniel is an outstanding guide!
