Friends & Family

A private tour gives you and your friends the space and freedom to do what you want to do in the way you want to do it.

Work Days Out

Be more creative with your team-building days out. Forget the pubs and paintball and go to a famous castle or take a gin-tasting trip around Edinburgh instead.

Heritage Journeys

Trace your family story and discover the castles and landscapes your ancestors once roamed.

Why would I want to create my own tour?

Our scheduled trips leave on set dates and are available to anyone. Whereas a private tour is exclusive for you and your chosen group. It’s perfect if you’re wanting to go when we have fewer tours running.

Where can I go?

You can go anywhere in the UK and Ireland. If you need inspiration, look through our other tours, add the ones you like to your ‘favourites’, and imagine how you could join them up.

How much will it cost?

Prices depend on the length or your tour and what you want us to book for you. A simple 8-hour 100-mile day tour in the UK with a driver-guide and a 16-seat vehicle would cost around £465.

If you want overnight accommodation, meals and entrances included, the costs will be different. Just let us know what you're looking for and we'll work out the right price for you.

What’s the accommodation like?

You can stay in castles, country houses, budget hotels, B&Bs, boats, or hostels: anywhere you like. We’re friends with a lot of the local accommodation providers, so we’re happy to help you find the most memorable places to stay.

Private Tour Consultant

"I’ve been with Rabbie's quite a number of years now, but I’ve been a planner for a lot longer.

My family struggle with making decisions to say the least. So armed with dad’s credit card (and his blessing), I put myself in charge of planning family holidays from a young age.

Then in university, I helped organise hill walking holidays. Which was amazing fun, but sometimes a challenge given the budget for any trip was a shoe string, a bag of beans, and whatever change we could find down the back of the sofa.

Now with a whole fleet of Rabbie's buses to call upon, I find things a lot easier.

At the end of the day, I just love a good plan when it comes together, so I keep making them."
