This trip was AMAZING and so was our guide Emily she was knowledgable, pleasant and did an excellent job with the tour. Highly recommended this tour to anyone who has not been to the Highlands or for those who would like to revisit.
Exceptional tour!! Words can not do this tour and this company justice. We were a small party of 5 and so had a bit more freedom. I went in the winter, which was wonderful got to see the Highlands in the snow, when Inverary castle is closed for tours. However, we you can still drive up to the property and get fantastic photos to fulfill all Downton Abbey fans dreams. I think what made it especially wonderful was our tour guide Gus. He was so friendly and knowledgeable. He invited all inquiries and I threw everything at him, history of Scotland from Jurassic to modern history he knew it. Also, if you're concerned about weather don't be, Rabbies has it covered. We drove through the snow with safety and ease. When we stopped for a picture at Kilchurn castle several other Rabbies tours that had faced greater weather restrictions had been promptly re-directed so that they could see as much of Scotland. I felt that I had ample time at each stop and simply communicating with your tour guide in my experience will help them to tailor the trip to everyone's enjoyment. I highly recommend this trip and will be using Rabbies again.
Great trip.. entertaining and laid back....safe driver and tour leader....lots of info and despite the milage covered ..it was not rushed...would reco this tour to get a glimpse of the Highlands
Beautiful scenery of the highlands. I went in winter, was a bit cold, but the views were definitely worth it!
HighLand in a day is impossible, but its unique experience, I came to know where to go next and for how long. Awesome Landscape, and with a guide who loves Scotland more than anything is just too much for a day. Though its a very short time to absorb so much but you can feel the freshness of highlands in this trip.
My husband and I had an incredible time on this tour. I had been to Scotland previously and had taken a one-day highland tour with a different company. This time around was so much better! Getting up to Inverness was one of the highlights! We loved our tour guide and our small group! The capital of the Highlands is a fantastic place that we'd highly recommend to anyone visiting Scotland. The B and B was absolutely lovely after a long day on the road. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Thanks so much Al!!!!!
It was a great trip! Be prepared for the 12 hours, but if you are, it's a great time. The buses are really comfortable and the guide keeps it interesting with stories and history and Scottish music! Great stops and a great way to see the highlands in one day.
We booked our trip through Viator because of a great two for one deal but Rabbie's was the operator. Our driver and guide was Jamie and he was really one of the best we have encountered. We learned more Scottish history from him in a relaxed and amusing way than on all the rest of our long weekend in Edinburgh. Jamie also tied in pop culture including modern movies like Mel Gibson's Braveheart and Liam Neesons's Rob Roy , Scottish folktales and fairy tales including Kelpies, and of course, whiskey. His conversational and engaging dialogue made the long drive great. He also gave us great insights like where to eat at Fort Augustine and where to avoid and was right on the mark. A couple of tips: Tip:#1: Rabbie's Trail Burners office is actually inside a No.1 Currency Exchange on the Royal Mile, across the street from Subway. Tip #2: The Ncek Deli, which I think used to be the Crown Deli, has quick and great lunches to go for the boat tour of Loch Ness. We tried the jacket potatoes with coronation chicken; absolutely delicious. Bottom Line: Great way to get out outside of Edinburgh and see some of the great Scottish Highlands and Loch Ness.
Fantastic.We had a young lady driver who comentated for the who journey there and back!! so much knowledge and a very good driver.We learnt so much about Scotland and the Highlands, and although the weather was not good we saw some spectacular sights and had a great boat trip which again was very informative.we will go back to the highlands one day and spend more time there.Trip also good value and well worth a whole day out thanks Rabbies and Laura
This is the second time I've used Viator for local touring overseas and cannot imagine a better experience. The local guide for the Highlands was fabulous, being very knowledgeable and energetic throughout the long day. Emily's enthusiasm for Scotland was contagious, and her answers to our group's questions insightful. There were plenty of photo, food/coffee and restroom stops. I highly recommend!
The best wishes and many thanks from our family to our guide/driver Emily. We booked the day tour from Edinburgh through the Highlands and Loch Ness. It was brilliant! Emily was our guide and we learned a lot about Scottish history. From start to finish Emily took great care of us and everything ran smoothly - even during the snowstorm! We will definitely recommend this tour to our friends.
During these past few years I have attended many guided tours around the UK. This one was absolutely the best one so far. Our amazing driver Tony entertained us through out the whole trip with his wonderful knowledge of highlands and its history. I would highly recommend this trip to everyone interested in beautiful scenery and interesting stories!
I loved the trip, our tour driver/guide Did an amazing job. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in the highlands and lochs
Our tour of the Scottish highlands was wonderful. The scenery was magnificent and we saw many places on the Isle of Skye and the highlands that would have been inaccessible without our knowledgeable tour guide. The highlight, however, for all our family (including our young children) was our tour guide - Don. Don was full or facts, amusing stories and care and concern for the welfare and comfort of all passengers. Don made the experience an absolute joy and his passion for the highlands was contagious! We have been on many tours in many countries and we have not yet encountered a tour guide as likeable as Don. This was a wonderful tour and a highlight of our Scottish experience!
The tourguide, Shelby, did not sound boring although she had done the tour many times before! Fantastic nature in the Highlands with waterfalls which had sprung forth since the day before due to heavy rainfall. Captain on the Loch Ness ship really believed in the monster, fascinating! Very satisfied
