    Thanks Hannah, we find that our passengers enjoy some independence so often give free time at the destinations themselves. This also means that our driver-guides can have well-needed rest breaks along the way. We're glad that you enjoyed everything overall, thank you for your feedback. Aimee

    About Rabbie's Tours

    Robin Worsnop started our tour company in 1993.
    All he had was an old sherpa van and a few people telling him it would never work.
    These days, Robin likes to think he started the company because he ‘saw a gap in the market’, ‘wanted to create an ethical way to travel’, and ‘knew what independent travellers wanted’.
    But we know the truth.
    He simply wanted to spend his time travelling around gorgeous places, discovering his homeland, and enjoying a dram with friendly faces from around the globe.
    And he could have carried on doing this forever.
    But there was a gap in the market; he had created an ethical way to travel, and he showed people a really, really good time.
    So, people started to talk about Robin’s quirky tours.
    Robin had to hire more people, buy more mini-coaches, start working with spreadsheets, and concentrate on building the company, so more people could live his dream.
    And now we have award-winning small-group tours departing from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, London, and Dublin.
    Sadly, Robin is too busy to see all these beautiful places as much as our guides. But he’s happy others are now seeing the places he loved in the way he loved seeing them.
    Throughout his journey, Robin has been guided by his vision to the make the world a better place through travel.

    Questions & Answers

    • Do you take children on your tours?

      Rabbies Tours unfortunately, do not carry children under the age of five on their scheduled tours.
    • How much time do I get off the bus?

      Rabbies Tours want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland and to do that they believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. You will have plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.
    • Are there toilets on the bus?

      Unfortunately, there are no onboard toilet facilities, but your driver-guide will make regular comfort breaks.
    • How much luggage can I bring?

      Passengers are restricted to 14kg (31lbs) of luggage per person on our tours. This should be one piece of luggage similar to an airline carry-on bag (approximately 55cm x 45cm x 25cm / 22in x 17in x 10in) plus a small bag for onboard personal items. Unfortunately, Rabbies are unable to store excess luggage, but nearby train and bus stations may have storage facilities for you to use.
    • When should I get to the departure point?

      Please arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions on the tours, they are unable to wait for you if you’re late.
    • Do you offer hotel pickups?

      The UK and Ireland’s historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, Rabbies only pick up from their central meeting points.
