We so enjoyed our tour experience with Rabbie’s. Our tour guide Ben was excellent. One of the best tour guides I’ve ever had, really made the experience special. Ben filled the tour with musings on history, humor, and personal experience. He showed us the sights along with playing us classic songs from the country of Scotland. It was a classic scotland rainy and windy day but we were warm and cozy in our bus in between stops. All Covid precautions that were noted on the site were in place to keep us feeling safe and responsible with our decision to do a full day tour. Sterling castle, loch lomand, and Glengoyne whisky tour were all worth the trip. I highly recommend this day tour. Cheers.

It was a cold day in November when Alistair drove up to greet us, and take care of us for the day. We signed up for the "Outlander tour" and he adroitly assessed our varying levels of enthusiasm for the sci-fi historical adventure soap opera.
and so we launched on a historical tour of royalty, war, clans, castles, and TV production locations.
As you can read from the other reviews, all the guides are great. Safe, courteous, considerate, funny, and attentive to the locations of rest rooms. We felt his enthusiasm for his discourse.
Alastair (not sure how he spells it) added to that with a wonderful map session to help us plan the rest of our trip. This was clearly exceeding expectations.
Did I mention how cold it was (and I live in New England!)?

A fantastic day with our driver Ben, filled with interesting history, funny stories, random Scottish facts, and great places. One of the best day tours we’ve done—way better than driving to all these places yourself.

Loved Stirling Castle . Our guide Steve was very knowledgeable and good fun.
Would have happily missed the lunch stop in Aberfoyle to allow more time at Loch Lomond.
Really enjoyed learning about the art of Whisky making . Would definitely recommend this trip

Such a wonderful tour, our tour guide Steve was amazing at keeping us entertained and informed on the scenery around us, which was beautiful by the way. A many variety of sights and opertunities to take photos of your surroundings. The distillery at the end is also very interesting, as you walk through the process of how they make the whiskey and obviously at the end of the tour is the whiskey tasting, very enjoyable and a great day out.

My friend and I (in our twenties) wanted to see a little more of Scotland before I head home to the states. We were on a Rabbie’s tour last year which was hands down the BEST day I’ve had in Scotland yet so we wanted to take another tour through Rabbie’s. We’re so happy we did!! Stevie was our tour guide for this trip and he was absolutely fantastic. He had so many facts to share (which I love) and stopped to let us get a picture of some Highland cows (which I also love). We had plenty of time to enjoy each of the stops. I’m not a fan of whiskey but my friend and I did the whiskey tour for the fun of it and it really was an enjoyable time. We also toured the castle. The weather was very rainy but that didn’t stop us from having an awesome day! I highly recommend this tour if you want to see a lot of Scotland in a short amount of time. You learn about the culture/country from knowledgeable and friendly guides who love what they do. Thanks very much Stevie!

Though it was raining cats and dogs, the trip was fantastic. We started our day with a visit to the Sterling Castle, where we had an extra ordinary view of the city and historic information about the castle. A quick yet scenic tour of the Loch Lomond became more pleasant with a drizzle. Glengoyne Distillery visit was very informative, though I could not taste the whiskey due to health issues, but understanding the whiskey manufacturing process was amazing.
Last but not the least our tour guide from Rabbies Tours "Stevie" made it more enjoyable with his Glaswegian accent and Scottish Humor. A big thank to you Pal, you made our day very special.

A very well organized trip, a beautiful route and a professional guide who gave us a lot of knowledge about Scotland. It traveled safely as the minibus was exceptionally clean and well prepared for the trip in terms of disinfection, which is very important to me now. A wonderful trip that I can recommend to others who want to experience the beauty of Scotland.
