I live in Glasgow but hadn't made it up to Skye, and when a friend came to town it was the perfect opportunity. It isn't just Skye: the trips up and back down cover some absolutely stunning parts of the mainland that are hard to access without a car. We saw so many gorgeous areas and made some amazing memories.

Our tour guide, Cameron, was fantastic. He is clearly extremely passionate about what he does and his past work as a park ranger shines through when he points out the local flora and fauna. He made the best choices for the weather and traffic as it changed and was candid about why he made each change and really kept us in the loop. He packed SO much into each day without it feeling rushed- we still had plenty of time for photos, and there were well-spaced comfort breaks along the way. Beyond the logistics, he made every topic sound so fascinating, and was very funny (especially the terrible dad jokes). You can tell that he really enjoys getting to know the people on his tours, and he tries to accommodate the things that everyone is really excited about.

The accommodations Rabbie's booked for us in Portree was comfortable and really close to town. They recommended booking ahead of time for meals and DEFINITELY do that: Portree has a lot of people looking for meals around the same time and there aren't a lot of restaurants available, so it's very busy. My favourite booking was at The Rosedale Hotel. As for the stops, there is enough time to take a light hike at almost every stop (or to simply enjoy the view if you don't feel like a hike).

Just came back from the Isle of Skye 3 day tour. The driver made the trip as safe as he possibly could, covid-wise, with the minibus only taking 4 ppl to preserve social distancing. I felt safe and well cared for.

I have been to Skye before with Rabbies, as well as on several other trips with Rabbies, but our guide Alistair still managed to make the trip very interesting. His knowledge of geomorphology was much appreciated and so was his good humour. He still managed to find new things to show us and even arranged for us to go on the turn-table ferry at Glenelg on the way back, which was phenomenal. It was worth every penny, as Rabbies managed to somehow arrange reasonably priced accommodation in Portree in peak season, which was quiet.

Even if you live in Scotland, it's well worth considering going with Rabbies for the experience, local knowledge and a well organised trip. The roads up there were quite challenging, but the guide did amazingly well, being polite and careful with more vulnerable road users. Overall, I think I ran out of Rabbies trips I can do, but I will be back if they add new destinations.

MUST DO excursion - I wish I had done this tour on my very first visit to Scotland several years ago. Going from Edinburgh, we saw so many beautiful, historic places that I had not seen before and stopped in quaint towns for comfort stops and snacks that truly conveyed the culture and personality of Scotland in a way that I had not experienced. This was greatly due to our marvelous tour guide/driver, who gave recommendations for coffee, ice cream, or where to capture the perfect photo.

BEST tour guide/driver! Scott was safe, considerate and treated everyone like family. Our group, originally 7 groups of strangers, a total of 15 passengers ended by taking our meals together, taking group pictures and sharing the experience of a lifetime, the Isle of Skye. Scott made sure that everyone was enjoying their trip and customized the days to our group's preferences. I don't know any of the other tour guides, but when we stopped at a landmark, many tour guides would come to our bus to chat with Scott, I would recommend requesting his bus.

Our accommodations were clean and located right on the water. Perhaps related to post-covid, meals were sometimes a challenge on Skye, but one night, Scott just stopped at a Chippy so we could get take-away. I thought the tour was an excellent value and would use this company again in the future for a different tour.

Skye is a fantastic island to visit and Rabbie's provided an excellent all-around experience. Smaller groups make it more special. Everything was very well organised in modern minibuses driven by expert guides. Jenny, our guide, was both friendly and professional and ensured that everyone had a great time with safety above all. Highly recommended!

My husband and I took the Isle tour with Jenny H. and she was simply fantastic. Her warm and lively personality really helped knit our group together. She has exceptional storytelling abilities and fun asides throughout the trip. She hangs artistic towels in the bus stairwell that are cute in themselves, but really help you figure out which bus is yours after a stop. Her experience allowed her to be adaptable to the weather and to personal whims, and she had excellent musical mix tapes that she even would customize when she learned of your other favorite Scottish bands. We went a year ago and could not stop thinking of her and the people we met on the trip. We stopped in at a crofters place, which was a really essential way to get the island. I tricked the husband into watching Outlanders season 1 ahead of time, and she gave just enough info in the regular tour to not overwhelm the males but still let us fans understand much of its historical relevance. The vans have charging stations and are very comfortable. We had a few teens along with their parents and she worked to make sure she pointed out relevant things for them, taking us to a music video site they all knew and were glad to see. Parting was bittersweet, and we hope to do her Ireland tour once we are able.

Even though we are the only group who joined the tour that day, they did not cancel the trip. Our tour guide Jenny is amazing and professional. She knew that we want to see the highland cow and make a snowman so much and she made my dream come true. Going to Skye in winter is much less crowded with different scenery. Definitely will go to Skye again in summer via Rabbie again ;) Thank you Jenny so much by providing a VIP experience to us!

The trip to Highland is surprising good! I did not expect such a great trip provided by a local travel agency. They do care about everyone in the group and our driver, Cameron also as our guide was so nice. He is very knowledgeable, telling many stories in Highland that I did not approach. (I travelled with a Chinese agency before in highland) this trip was very safe, sensitiser is provided on the bus and everyone was wearing a mask. I can’t tell how amazing and comfortable this trip is, our guide organised everything very well. In addition, I did enjoy the Scottish music Cameron played during the trip. He is the most patient and knowledgeable guide I’ve ever met! This trip to Skye was absolutely worth!

The Isle of Skye is truly stunning - almost to the point of being overwhelming. If you fancy seeing the island you will not be disappointed.

Keeping this in mind, the true highlight of the trip was our Rabbie's tour guide Cameron. Cameron had an all encompassing knowledge of Scotland's history, culture, wildlife, folklore and flora of each region. His knowledge was shared through a keen sense of storytelling and he even had a hand-picked music playlist with songs that fit perfectly with each landscape we were passing through.

A highlight of our trip was making the Glenelg Ferry crossing from Skye back to the mainland on the way home - it gave our small group a true feeling of the pace of Scottish island life.

We had a great tour . Our tour guide Peter was friendly and very informative. We were also impressed w/ his driving skills . We encountered some severe weather w/ flooded roads and very high winds. Peter had no problem and transported us safely around the Isle of Skye . We enjoyed all the sights and wouldn’t change a thing . Highly recommend!

Very enjoyable tour. As a solo traveller on thos tour, I wasnt feel awkward or bored at all. Our your guide Ben has great knowledge about the regions and share a lot of interesting stories with us. The weather wasnt the greatest but Ben will add in extra effort to make sure we get to see the nice landscape and sceneies of Isle of Skye. The accomodation organised by Rabbie (Woodlands Guest house) was great. Clean and tidy.
DEfinitely recommended the tour.
