I was here with my friends last December and I must say, our expedition to Everest base camp was one of the most memorable moments in my life!

Suresh was very accommodating to us and he was a great host while we were in Kathmandu. I highly recommend getting Rakesh as a guide, he is the epitome of greatness!

I did a day trip to Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond from Edinburgh with Rabbie’s yesterday. The stops we made were stunning, but the best part of the trip was our driver, Jude. She was very knowledgeable and gave us a ton of information about the sites, Scotland and it’s history. And more importantly she made it fun and different with stories and sound effects and witty jokes. Best tour I’ve been on to date!

    About Sunrise Adventure

    Sunrise Adventures specializes in trekking tours in Nepal, but also offer trekking and sightseeing in India, Tibet, and Bhutan.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Nepal is a classic trekking destination and Sunrise Adventures local guides have years of professional experience guiding and walking challenging multi-day treks. They offer assistance not only on the trail, but pre and post travel as well, including visa support and hotel booking. 24 hour customer service is available during your travel - including safety support such as helicopter rescue.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Trekking is not for the faint of heart! Both literally and figuratively. Most of their trips are quite challenging, and you will be hiking in altitude. Most of their tours, if not fully focused on trekking, have an adventure component whether it be bungee jumping or whitewater rafting. These kinds of tours are most suited to young travelers seeking excitement with a dose of culturally enriching activities as well. Groups and individual travelers are welcome.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Primarily they are known for their Nepal treks, which range from the famous Everest variations to lesser known areas. However they also offer a variety of adventure trips in India, Tibet, and Bhutan.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Trips are all conducted by local guides, and they have many years of expertise leading the challenging multi-day treks. They are also an eco conscious tour company for those looking to minimize their carbon footprint while traveling. You can also feel good about helping the local communities as a portion of the profits when you book your trip go toward social services such as helping orphanages and local charities.

    About Rabbies

    Rabbies Tours - also sometimes called Rabbies Trail Burners, was founded in 1993, by Robin Worsnap.

    What Makes Rabbies Stand Out?

    When you travel on a Rabbies tour, you are whisked away in a comfortable 16-seater van, and immediately greeted with a friendly, local, and knowledgeable guide. Whether you are attending one of their day tours, or multi-day tours, you will come away with a rich and entertaining travel experience - and probably a few new friends!

    Coo on Scotland Rabbies Tour

    Groups are kept small - 16 max - and the focus is on ensuring you get to jump off the bus as often as possible for photo stops and occasionally longer stops for shopping, sightseeing, or hiking - all optional.

    Rabbies have carved out a unique niche for exploring the many sites in Britain with a sense of humor and extremely knowledgeable guides.  

    Who Will Enjoy Traveling With Rabbies?

    English landscape Rabbies Tours

    One of the most unique facets of Rabbies is their ability to appeal to a wide range of travelers - both in terms of budget and age range. Because of this, it is important to keep in mind that meals, excursions, and accommodations are not included in the tour price.

    While the guides are more than happy to provide suggestions for where to eat, and can help arrange reservations, you will be on your own as no meals are included in the itinerary. However the sense of immediate camaraderie created with your tour mates when you first strike out means you will rarely eat alone (unless you so wish).

    Stone wall in English Countryside

    Groups are international, and you’ll usually meet a smattering of single travelers, students, couples, and small family groups.

    With regards to accommodations, Rabbies provides several choices, from 5 star hotels to mutli-bed hostel rooms. Each is comfortable, but keep your expectations realistic.

    Because of the way Rabbie’s structures their accommodation booking, they need to satisfy several travelers in relatively small towns and villages, all who may have different ideas of what a Bed and Breakfast or Guest House is.

    On top of that, accommodation style in Britain does tend to be a bit quirky, especially for American travelers.

    So those travelers for whom a comfortable bed and some coffee in the morning are essentials - but can deal with odd showers and no elevator - are ideally suited to the Rabbies travel style.

    Country road in England

    A focus for Rabbies tours is on describing the culture and history of wherever you happen to be visiting. For younger travelers seeking a rolliking tour that involves a lot of pub stops, drinking, or partying, Rabbies might not be for you.

    But if you enjoy meeting fellow travelers of all different ages, and learning a lot about Britain’s sprawling history than Rabbies is the perfect fit.

    Top Destinations

    Rabbies are exclusively focused on tours around the UK. They feature everything from day tours, to a few longer two week offerings. Their sweet spot is with tours between 2-7 days.

    This means your tour can consist of everything from a few major sites in a concentrated area (such as the Cotswolds) to a more leisurely view including some off the beaten path experiences.

    English coastline

    Their multiple durations help travelers find the perfect way to check off their UK bucket list. It’s also not uncommon to meet tour goers who have been on multiple Rabbies tours in the same trip!

    Rabbies continues to add departures of various durations throughout the UK and Ireland.

    Rabbies Travel Style

    The Rabbies travel style is deceptively laid back. Each tour with them will be a little different depending on your guide. Guides are all locals to the UK, though they may not be specifically from the country or region of your tour.

    Rabbies tour bus in Scotland

    There is some potential for a tour with Rabbie’s to feel rushed - the guides are fairly structured about the amount of time spent in each destination, as they try to make sure you get to your accommodations at a decent time in the evening.

    Depending on your driver guides style, as well as the nature of the attractions on your itinerary and their distance from each other, the amount of time you spend in the van will vary widely.

    Castle in Wales

    While on the van, guides will commonly have a soundtrack prepared - playing music directly related to the tour. Such as local musicians from the Isle of Skye or a Shirley Bassey tune or two as you drive through Wales (known for excellent singers!). Do take note: there is no WiFi on Rabbies vans.

    As mentioned above, Rabbies provides several accommodation styles. During the booking process, you select which one you’d prefer (offering a first choice and a second choice) and Rabbies will make the booking for you.

    You will pay the hotel / hostel / or guest house directly upon your arrival. Note: if you book through a travel agent, this process may have already been taken care of.

    At the end of the day, your driver will drop everyone off at their accommodations, pointing out potential eating venues or nearby places of cultural interest for you to explore on your own.

    The following morning, your driver guide will pick you up and you’re off to explore the area for another full day!

    Most Rabbies tours don’t involve any strenuous outdoors activities - so you don’t need to go prepared for hiking or cycling. Do be prepared for the weather however. Especially for traveling in Scotland, the weather is extremely unpredictable - have a solid rain jacket and / or windbreaker and be ready to deal with the rain at some point or another.

    Why Choose a Tour With Rabbies?

    Fairy Glen Scotland Isle of Skye

    If you want to see the UK from a local point of view, learn in depth about the culture and history that has shaped Britain, then Rabbies is the perfect choice. They are accessible to a wide range of budgets and ages, so if you are after a tour specifically designed for your age group, Rabbies probably isn’t for you.

    Tours with Rabbies are great for exploring the UK, both for new visitors as well as repeat travelers. You’ll visit classic sites, as well as hidden spots, completely inaccessible to large tour groups.

    Most stops are kept short (anywhere from a 10 minute photo stop to a 2 hour lunch stop), ensuring that you cover a lot of ground, while also having ample time off the bus, if just to stretch your legs.

    Rabbies tours are small - 16 people max, which is great if you are less interested in a large group which has the potential to feel impersonal. In large part due to their spectacular guides - it’s practically impossible to leave a Rabbie’s tour without a few new friends.
