It was an amazing tour! I was told one day earlier that I might be the only tourist in this tour but organiser offered me alternative dates/full refund or continue with the original plan options, and I chose to go as planned. It turned out to be a wonderful experience for me, and only me with the super friendly tour guide and driver! He is very knowledgeable and explained me every lakes (loches) or other sceneries along the trip, and helped me with photos. Really appreciate it that Rabbie gave me a private tour on that date! I would probably come back and take an another three day Skyi trip to appreciate more highland sceneries with Rabbies in the future when I had more time.

We drove today with Fraser and it was great! It was a rainy day but the sights were mesmerising non the less. Our driver even made an extra stop because the clouds were opening up and he wanted to give us a chance for a clear-sky picture! Would definitly recommend!

An incredible introduction to so many beautiful places in the Scottish countryside. Our guide Cameron was knowledgeable, funny and appropriately flexible to factors such as our tour group’s interest, the weather and avoiding traffic. A magical journey across Scotland in only one day.

Had a fantastic time with Ben as our guide!! His stories were engaging: full of history, facts and he brought the people an battles alive. His endless supply of facts made a long day fly by. His driving was smooth and professional especially during the poor weather we had at the end. I would gladly go on another tour with Ben as a guide. I highly recommended this tour with him as a guide. You will not be disappointed.

Outstanding tour with Cameron. The weather was ideal, which really helped, but the stories, history and music from our enthusiastic guide/driver kept us all engaged for the 300 plus miles. If you are only visiting Glasgow or Edinburgh this trip will show you some of Scotland's outstanding scenery. Speaking as an Englishman : the best in UK. The Loch Ness boat ride was optional and quite interesting. However if you stay ashore you have time for a decent lunch and I found there was only time for takeaway snacks in the busy schedule. I rarely come to Scotland and never before in winter. I just fancied getting out of Glasgow to see the landscape and this trip was ideal. The vehicle was top notch too. Very comfortable minibus not some clapped out old van.

Well done Cameron and Rabbies!

Fab way to spend a day in the Highlands (even though the weather was awful)! With our wonderful tour guide John, his wealth of knowledge (and humour) and outstanding playlist, made for a great day! Incredible views, lochs, waterfalls and even “hairy coos”! Would highly recommend - excellent value for money.

Everything was very nice, I will definitely do this tour again.

Everything was well organised and the music on the bus was Scottish and suited the tour.
