Description
From London, your five-day Devon and Cornwall tour begins with a relaxing drive through Wessex on your way to the famous stone circle of Stonehenge – your first stop on the tour. On Day 1, you’ll also visit the South Devon coast, where a stunning landscape awaits you, and Exeter, where you’ll stay for two nights in your choice of a three-star bed and breakfast or three-star hotel.

On your second day, visit mystic Dartmoor, where you’ll hear spooky stories from your guide, and Tavistock, a beautiful small town. Spend the afternoon and evening in Exeter.

Day 3 offers the beauty of Cornwall. Visit the civil parish of Launceston, the Bodmin moor, Golitha Falls, St Neats church and Tintagel Castle. End the day in Falmouth, where you’ll stay for two more nights.

On your fourth day, visit the island of St Michaels Mount and beautiful Minack Theatre. Also visit the white sandy beaches of Porthcurno and Penzance. Move on to Land's End, before you head back to Falmouth.

On Day 5, visit Glastonbury with its ancient, mythical connections to King Arthur before returning to London. Return to London in the evening.

Please note: Breakfast is included in your accommodation; you'll have enough free time to enjoy lunch and dinner on your own.

This is the second time we've done this tour--this time with friends--and it was every bit as good or better than the first time. We were able to do different things at the same stops which expanded our experience. Our guide, June, was wonderful! She was very informative and surprised us with a stop at Port Issac, which we didn't do the first time. Our van mates were all compatible and we left each other as friends at the end of the tour. I can't recommend this tour enough for a good taste of Devon and Cornwall.

This tour is delivered by Rabbies. Great experience in this whistle stop tour. HIghlights for me were the Minack Theatre in Porthcurno, and St. Ives. Wish I could have spent more time in Falmouth. A great introduction to the southwest of England. Excellent driver, commentary, and coach. Pack light, though. It helps getting around!

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide Hugh from Rabbie's was excellent. He was great about providing the history, enthusiastic about the stories he told, and seemed to care a lot about making sure everyone was enjoying themselves. The timing of this tour in October was also perfect. We had such nice weather and the places we visited were not very busy at least compared to summer. I certainly recommend, this tour, Rabbie's, and Hugh.

Very well planned and organized trip! Tony, our driver / tour guide, was a wealth of information, stories, personality and could even navigate the 2-lane country roads without incident -- my hats off to you! In Tony's words, this trip is a tasting menu of the incredible history of Devon and Cornwall. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and definitely recommend this tour for all who are interested in experiencing southwest England.

Tour was amazing. We truly enjoyed the history and stories that Dave and Nick shared with us. They were very accommodating and helpful throughout the tour. We would highly recommend this tour. Dave and Nick made it fun and interesting. Small group size just adds to the experience.

This trip was wonderful! We pack a lot of territory into five days and our very skilled driver, Geoff /Jeff, made it interesting and fun, and taught us so much history. While it was basically a taste of Devon and Cornwall I'm not sure I would have been able to see this part of England any other way so a little bit was so much better than nothing. We stayed in hotels and our accommodations were good. I would absolutely do a longer trip just like this.

Fantastic tour Rabbies UK thanks to Hugh our driver and guide. Small group of 14 with 3 solo travellers which I was one. I chose B and B which was comfortable and well located. Hugh was excellent so knowledgeable we all had a great fun holiday thanks to him, with a great group as well, made friends for life

We just loved this tour....our guide Jamie and his trainee John, could not have been more professional, knowledgable, and friendly. Great guys ! The guest houses we stayed at were just the type places we'd hoped for. All of the locations we visited and toured, were well chosen and our guides brought their respective histories to life before and after each visit. Along with pointers about local cuisine, the lore and fun of the trip made it the high light of our month long stay in Europe. We highly recommend this trip.....also, we met some really good folks on this trip from the land down under, and the land nearby ! Great trip !

We certainly enjoyed this tour with our guide/driver Kevin. He was very well organized and handed us a package when we boarded the bus with brochures and maps for all the places we were to visit. Our mini bus 16 people was brand new and very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed all of the places we visited especially Winchester, Boscastle, Tintagel home of King Arthur!!, the beautiful Minack Theatre. We would have preferred to stay at Boscastle or Glastonbury rather than Exeter and would have like to have visited St Michael's Mount instead of viewing it from a distance. That aside we had a wonderful time with very good B and B accommodation in Exeter and Falmouth. We enjoyed driving over the moors at Dartmoor and we saw the prison and the ponies. I would definitely recommend this tour. We have some lovely memories.
