Before booking this trip I did a lot of research on which Cornwall tour would hit most of the places I wanted to see. Not only did this tour meet my expectations but it exceeded them. I can't believe how many great places and things we saw. In addition, our driver Kevin was superb. I felt completely safe on the tiny roads as he was a careful driver. And a great guide. Both informative and humorous at the same time. If you have only 5 days and want to see this area of England, book with Rabbie's.

My wife and I just returned from a terrific tour of Devon and Cornwall. Our guide (Lord Kevin) was very knowledgeable and fun. He had lots of information about the area some factual and some legion, but all worth learning about. We particularly likes the personal touch of the tour. If we had a special request, Kevin would do his best to provide the opportunity. We also liked the flexibility of the itinerary. At any stop we would be given a number of options to pursue on our own or as a group, so we weren’t tied to a particular schedule other than when to get back on the bus. This tour is a great introduction to Devon and Cornwall. We hope to return for a longer stay.

The trip was fantastic! We love every minute of it. Our driver/guide Dean was amazing. He gave us all kinds of information about the country, the local site and folklore. He was very considerate of our needs: driving us as close as possible to the sites, picking us up in the same spot that we were dropped off, reminding us of how much time would could spend and what we would be seeing and doing next. Dean was always ready to answer questions and was great at letting us know where we could get the best food at reasonable prices. The trip itself was wonderful. We loved the pastoral scenery and visiting such places as Stonehenge and Doc Martin's village. I would definitely recommend this trip and this particular tour guide.

This is the second time we've done this tour--this time with friends--and it was every bit as good or better than the first time. We were able to do different things at the same stops which expanded our experience. Our guide, June, was wonderful! She was very informative and surprised us with a stop at Port Issac, which we didn't do the first time. Our van mates were all compatible and we left each other as friends at the end of the tour. I can't recommend this tour enough for a good taste of Devon and Cornwall.

This tour is delivered by Rabbies. Great experience in this whistle stop tour. HIghlights for me were the Minack Theatre in Porthcurno, and St. Ives. Wish I could have spent more time in Falmouth. A great introduction to the southwest of England. Excellent driver, commentary, and coach. Pack light, though. It helps getting around!
