This is a long tour with many hours on the bus. You will see lots of sights and the countryside. October 2018

I took this trip in October of 2018. Our tour guide in Spain spoke very poor English, and it was very difficult to understand her. She also did not know much about Spain (she was from Cuba), so we got very little information from her. This was very disappointing. The local day guides were better informed and easier to understand. Expect very long hours on the bus, with short stops along the way. Scenery will be spectacular. Lunches will frequently be at truck stops where you will line up with busloads of other tourists for bathrooms and pre-packaged sandwiches. Day tours will be very crowded, and you will often be herded like cattle through the streets. The ferry ride to Tangiers was fun, but getting on and off the ferry would be difficult for someone who can't get around easily. We saw two people fall and get injured. Our tour guide in Morocco was excellent, and very well informed. We had local guides for the excursions in places we stopped. Expect to be guided through the Suk in Fes to four designated places to shop, and you will not be allowed to shop anywhere else in the Suk. The same is true for the tour of the Suk in Marrakech and the old city in Toledo. Shopping was allowed only at high end places. If you aren't interested in shopping, this will be a big waste of your time. Your main meals will mostly be at mediocre buffets in the hotels you stay in. Drink only bottled water, lots of people in our group got sick, mostly in Morocco. You will be given the opportunity to pay extra (around $110 Euros) for a dinner and show in Fes and Marrakech, both of which were enjoyable, but if you choose only one, do the one in Fes. You will see a lot of both Spain and Morocco. The buildings are breathtaking. You will have both panoramic (bus) tours and walking tours. Walking tours are long, varying 1 - 2 hours. My favorite places were Ronda, Seville, Granada and Toledo. Take advantage of free time in Granada to see the Cathedral. If you do this tour, invest in a guide book to read along with way.

We left London and travelled through the Cotswolds toward Aberystwyth, our destination for two nights. We stayed at the very comfortable and centrally located Bodalwyn Guest House B&B (scrumptious breakfast). For the next two days we toured the Welsh countryside to places such as Beddgelert, Harlech Castle, New Quay, Llandeilo, Laugharne (Dylan Thomas home). St. Davids arriving at Tenby and staying at the centrally located Myrtle House Hotel for two nights. Both Aberystwyth and Tenby had good choices of restaurants within easy walking distance. Also visited castle ruins in the Tenby and Llandeilo areas and toured seaside areas. On return to London we visited St. Fagans Natural History Museum outside Cardiff and toured the restored Cardiff waterfront .Our Driver / Guide John was safe, excellent and very knowledgeable and humorous. The 16 passenger bus was very comfortable and perfect for off the beaten path forays. Read more

It was our first experience with a guided tour. We didn't know what we could expect.
We came back with wonderful memories. Matt, our guide was marvelous! He always took the time to explain the details of the day, see if it suited everybody. For some attractions he gave an alternative for people who didn't want to join. At check-in in the B&B's he always came in with everybody to be sure that everything was ok with the reservation.
He had a great humor, put on some Scottish music along the journey to really put us in the mood and culture. He has a really good knowledge of his country, its myths and stories, it was a pleasure to listen to him.
The advantage of those small (16) groups is that you really have a contact with each other and you don't have the feeling to blindly follow your guide like small kids.
And of course the views were breath taking, we couldn't have seen all of this on our own. We would definitely recommend Rabbie's tour to anyone.

The tour was comfortably-paced tours and covered most of the best sights around the Isle of Sky. It was better than expected because our guide had us experience bits of local Scottish culture through music and story-telling. Read more

I just got back from a 3 week trip in the UK, where I actually took two Rabbies tours. The Isle of Sky was my first tour with them, and it exceeded my expectations. I really can't say enough about how great the experience was traveling with Rabbies.

One of the things that stood out to me about them, and why I decided to book with them, is the fact that I could make the experience fit my budget.

Rabbies lets you select your desired accommodation style, from hostels all the way up to nice hotels, and then they book it for you. And no meals are included during the trip, which again, for me, worked out really well, because I could seek out meals within my budget.

Our guide, Matthew was fantastic (if a bit of a fast driver!!). He had a great sense of humor, and was enormously knowledgable about the area - providing tons of historical and cultural context to what we were seeing, which was a huge plus for me. He also stopped frequently to let us take photos and stretch our legs.

The group was what really made this trip extra special though. We had travelers from all over the world, and a very wide range of ages. Several single travelers, a few families, and a smattering of couples. Everyone got along famously, and it was a shame we were only together for four days.

I can't wait to take another Rabbies tour when I go back to the UK!
