Eight new small group tours have been unveiled by Rabbie’s which take in some of Europe’s most scenic and cultural experiences.

Amalfi Coast, Italy

The three and four-day itineraries offer round-trip adventures from Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Milan and Rome. The tours begin in September 2024 and are available to book now for groups of up to 16 people.

Rabbie’s says that it specialises in small group tours guided by storytellers to ensure the journeys and experiences live longer in travellers’ minds.

In Europe, guests can sample Mediterranean cuisines, take in Alpine vistas, follow the footsteps of Renaissance masters, practise flamenco and more. 

Some of the highlights:
