Celebrating 25+ Years of Small Group Touring…
Rabbie’s Tour Company promises to deliver unique and memorable experiences to last a lifetime – and I could not agree more! My 3-day “Shakespeare’s England, Warwick Castle & Cotswolds” tour was truly delightful. Charles and I opted to stay at one of the local B&B’s (rather than a hotel) and we discovered gracious hosts, excellent accommodations, and heartwarming hospitality.
Robin Worsnop started the Rabbie’s Company in 1993. His goal was to spend time traveling, discovering his homeland, and enjoying a “dram” with friendly faces from around the globe. So, what started as a dream, grew into a highly successful venture and an award-winning small-group tour company spanning the UK & Europe. Kudos to Robin!
The Company’s unusual name, Rabbie’s (rhymes with abbeys and pronounced ‘ra-bees’). It is the affectionate nickname of Robert Burns, Scotland’s most famous poet. He told the tallest tales as he roved the land, loved nature, and embodies what Rabbie’s is passionate about. Rabbie’s guides are poets, the routes are inspiring, and they enjoy a little fun while exploring our beautiful planet.
Rabbie’s offers travel to small groups in 16-seat mini-coaches. Their philosophy is based on making travel more comfortable for clients, the ability to drive up easily to local venues, and to be able to navigate small backroads to hidden-away local treasures. Tour guides are knowledgeable “storytellers” filled with facts, quirky stories, history, and tales; our guide was no exception.
This award-winning company has been offering tours for over 25 years. It’s important to note that Rabbie’s guarantees departures! There are no required minimum numbers for any tours. Rabbie’s Tours range from one-day, half-day and city tours to 17-day traveling extravaganzas across Scotland, Northern and Southern England, Wales and Ireland. The Company is extremely flexible and will collaborate with clients to fit their needs – if you’re looking for exclusivity, private drivers and guides are available.
