Touring with no more than 16 passengers gives you more personal attention, more time with the locals, more time off the bus, more time on the back-roads and just more of an all-round memorable experience.
Rabbie’s promise to get you in touch with the people, places, history and legends of the country and deliver you a unique and memorable experience to last you a lifetime. The local guides are your hosts; each hand-picked for their pride and passion for the areas they tour and dedicated to delivering outstanding travel experiences.
