    Well planned and well executed tour. Our guide, Heather, was excellent. She was knowledgeable and a great driver. She provided history and context for the places visited, and answered questions well and thoroughly.

    5.0 - Excellent

    The tour was well planned - the travel time between locations was in short enough lengths to allow for comfort stops yet long enough to cover the distances required. Nick was well versed in the history of the sites we visited and was a congenial driver/guide. The B&B's were extremely well run. The rooms were immaculate and breakfasts were made to order and delicious. Some adjustments were made to the itinerary to fit the group on tour although every place listed was visited as well as a few extras. I would recommend Rabbie's for their small group tours and the training of their drivers/guides.

    5.0 - Excellent

    We visited hidden places that would only be known to someone with an intimate knowledge of the locale itself and also of the historical and cultural environment in which it finds itself. I got the impression that, while we visited the more well-known and popular sites, we also visited places that the guide himself felt empowered to add to the itinerary. B&B's were somewhat eccentric but very satisfactory. The itinerary was well planned and executed.
