      Great Highlands tour with John
      Great tour made better by a great guide (John from Rabbies tours). Had a wonderful time viewing the northern countryside of Scotland and the lochs in a comfortable 16 pax Mercedes van. Enjoyed the playlist of music and the guide’s humor along the way…a great guide makes the trip so much more enjoyable, and John delivered. Short visit at Loch Ness with a boat cruise that was informative and enjoyable. Overall, this trip is a must do, if visiting Glasgow. Thanks John!

      Best tour and tour guides ever.
      This is one of the best tours I have done and is my third time going. Rabbies is always so relaxed and professional and the guides are hilarious and well informed and will ensure you don't miss a thing. This time we had Allister and I can't say enough, he was funny, well spoken and told so many interesting facts. He made every member of the tour feel included and we'll taken care of. So incredible 🤩

      Don't miss the chance to take a Rabbie's tour.
      This was one of the best things we did on our trip to Scotland. I can't believe how much was saw and did on the tour of Loch Lomond, Glencoe, Loch Ness and more. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable making it a great day. Don't miss the chance to take a Rabbie's tour.

      Awesome tour!
      Our tour guide Bobbie was very friendly and knowledgeable. Told about the clans and how power came to be. Took us to the loches and spoke about the different areas and what they were know for. Answered any and all questions. Had plenty of time to see everything. Definitely the highlight of my vacation. Would recommend this tour 100%!

      Great tour!
      We had a great experience on our Rabbie's tour. The small passenger bus was very comfortable. Our driver, Dave, was knowledgeable and lots of fun. While in Falkland, he took us around and pointed out places where scenes from Outlander were filmed. The tour began with a visit at the Kelpies, which was very cool. The drive through the kingdom of Fyfe was beautiful, as was the town of Falkland. St Andrews was amazing. The cathedral and the ruins were really cool to explore. We really enjoyed this tour.

      Great Guide, Great scenery, Great Day!
      The tour guide Grame ( and his assistant Steven) were prompt, informative, helpful and good tour guides! Grame was a wealth of historical and local knowledge, and just a delight! The Castle visit and commentator was good ( just wish there was more time (an hour) to explore more! Lunch stop was a nice respite, and it was a nice town to stop at! Lake cruise was relaxing and informative, and a great view of the Hills (Highlands)! Enjoyed the day!

      Great day trip to Stirling Castle and the Highlands.
      If you’re looking for a day trip to get out of the city and see the Scotland countryside this is the trip for you. Vans are very comfortable. Tour is very chill and laid back. Graeham was an excellent guide and was very knowledgeable about the history of Scotland. You will not be disappointed with this tour.

      An enjoyable day out
      An amazing full day trip with Rabbie's tours. Definitely recommend as you get to see a lot of Scotland's Lochs and castles. Weather was very good. Outer guide, Jeff, was very knowledgeable. Trip was value for money.

      Highly recommend the Rabbie's tour
      I am so happy that we took this tour, it couldn't have been better. I'm amazed at how much we saw in one day. Our guide Grahem was so knowledgeable and terrific at giving us history and context all along the way. Seeing Glencoe was a high point. I'm so glad we also booked the boat tour on Loch Ness. We got to see a good bit of wildlife on the northern side where the captain kept close in for part of the trip. Enjoyed the stop at Pitlochry and the single malt ice cream. Looking forward to taking another tour with them!

      Fun in the rain
      It was nice to be in a van, instead of a sixty-passenger bus. Our guide, Graham, was fun and informative and made the tour enjoyable in spite of the rain. He played great music!

    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!

    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!

    Wonderful tour with a great driver guide Cameron. Would recommend this to anyone wishing to visit this part of Scotland. The Rabbies vehicle was perfectly suited to the tour getting to places larger vehicles couldn't reach. Our Driver guide was knowledgable, a great communicator and a consumate professional. Excellent value for money and communication from the company was clear and timely.

    Only one adjective is enough to describe this experience: excellent! It's the best tour I've ever done in my life. Everything was perfect: the organization, the places visited, the comfortable minibus and the guide. Cameron, in addition to being a very punctual driver, was our history teacher, dj, entertainer with a great culture and sense of humor. In short only one adjective: excellent!

    Crikey, small tour excellence does not get any better! My friend and I joined the 3 day Skye tour in September with Alastair, what a hoot! His natural connection with people, his knowledge, his genuine care and concern for all guests to get the most from their experience, his ability to steer us through multiple narrow roads and access ways, so impressive! Even after the 3 days, he managed to pull a hat out of his bag initiating the best-est sing-along EVER for our drive back in to Glasgow! All the usuals re the comfort in the bus, the accommodation (superb, as is the liaison between the B & B’s and Rabbies) and Alastair’s passion for his country and its history helped us all connect so much with the beauty of Scotland. Yes, storytellers for sure, but delivered with great personable care and wonderful humour! The only thing left to do is articulate that Rabbies knows their business, their staff go beyond and this totally special tour is now enshrined in a very special place in my heart. 20/10 Rabbies and Alistair - thank you! Yep, if we’re back that way, without a doubt Rabbies would be the top pick and we highly recommend this tour company!

    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 journey both to and back from the Isle of Skye provide magnificent scenery and sites to view. Once on Skye, we stayed in Partree, a quaint town with a beautiful bay & both the hotel accommodations and food are very pleasing, and the townspeople are friendly. There is so much to see on Skye, a 3 day tour only provides a nice introduction, but it will make you want to come back.
    In total there were 13 of us traveling with Rabbee’s Tours and and our guide/driver was Cameron. Cameron is a wealth of knowledge and he conveys stories and information in a pleasing, and at times humorous, way.

    This tour was fantastic and greatly organised! All staff from Rabbies was friendly and helpful, and available even at late hours. Isle of Skye is one of the most beautiful places I have been (and I have been in many stunning places). The Highlands are a very special and unique place.
    Our tour guide, Cameron, was great – always careful with anyone in the group – he is a very knowledge man who clearly loves his country. He made our experience more interesting and fun by sharing stories about the places we were visiting. His playlist was fantastic with very beautiful songs, always related to a story he was telling and / or a place we were visiting. The whole experience was excellent!

    I will use Rabbies again when I go back to Scotland.
