The 2-day Loch Ness and Inverness tour with Rabbies tours was fantastic. The driver Doug also made it a memorable occasion.
We went and viewed Castles and did a whisky tour, saw snow and got to meet great people.
I have since been on a different tour in Ireland and due to Rabbies tours setting the bar so high, with great sights, history and at a great price.... it will b a hard experience for others tours to beat. I will definitely be recommending Rabbies to friends
It was all we expected and more! The tour guide, Mac, told the group tons of stories about the clans and battles in the highlands, making the tour even more fascinating. The scenery was breathtaking. The highlands, Glencoe and Loch Ness were simply beautiful. We had the chance to make a boat tour on Loch Ness and try to find Nessie. No luck this time, though... We definitely recommend this tour so that you can fall in love with Scotland as we did. Being from Brazil, Mac was even nice enough to say some words in portuguese!
Great trip and our guide was very knowledgeable. We stopped at many sites along the way to take pictures and the guide was more than helpful taking our family photos. The Loch Ness site was awesome and the food at the restaurant was delicious. The bus was comfortable and the driver allowed us to take many "pit" stops to get a drink, stretch our legs or use the bathrooms. Only con of the trip was if you get the least bit car sick when travelling, do not book this trip as the roads through the highlands and the lochs navigate closely to these geographical features and there are many twists and turns which made me queasy. But overall, great experience.
The tour guide was very friendly and professional and he played the most fantastic music on the bus!!! He stopped as often as he could, which was wonderful. He could have told us more about the Loch Ness and its history because we didn't all go on the boat trip. We drove home in the dark and would have liked to hear more about the little towns which we drove through. All in all, the day tour which was rather long, was well worth it and was thoroughly enjoyed by us.
Lovely trip to highlands with a very nice tour guide in comfortable van. Optional cruise at Loch Ness is worth of doing even though I didn't see anything. The beautiful scene of Scottish countryside is another bonus.
This was a great tour, it's a long day but you see so much it goes quickly. Nicola is an excellent guide providing insights on everything from local history to the meaning of popular songs, even after 12 hours she is still going, an awesome effort. If you have one day and want to see a lot of Scotland this is the ideal way to do it. Left on time and was back on time. Even includes time for an optional and good cruise on Loch Ness, only thing it didn't provide was Nessie.
Me and my wife were a wee bit late for the tour but our tour guide waited for us, as we took off John our tour guide give us insight and history on all the glens and played music that worked well for each spot, He stop at spot that normal big coach tours could not go to, Our lunch break was a quiet town near loch ness and less busy then if again we stopped with other coach, We opted in for the one hour cruse on the loch and it was amazing mother nature was kind to us on that day and it was only windy. The tour in all was relaxing and very insightful I would recommend this tour to anyone and if you get John McDermott (not sure if his last name is spelled properly) You will not be bored he is an amazing tour guide.
I really enjoyed my three day tour of the Highlands, specially Portree, Isle of Skye, I thought the B and B was also excellent, the Rosemount, family very warm and welcoming. The train over the viaduct, was really enjoyable, lot of fun, in Mallaig and just the drive through the Highlands, can't wait to return for a longer visit. Tour guide was excellent and informative, I will have to have a family member show me how to log my photos on, took excellent photos of the train coming around the via duct, thanks to a staff member on the train, in the gift shop at the time, and he told me I had a perfect photo opportunity,that was nice of him,he was very informative and friendly too, also my photos of Glencoe. Looking forward to a return visit, Loch Ness, Callander and Blair Atholl on my list to do now. Thank you. ,
Frank and I were so looking forward to our tour of Skye Isle and Loch Ness...but we had no idea how wonderful it was going to be...talk about exceeding expectations!! The group of travelers was perfect...just enough and our guides suggestion that we change up seats our three days was right on...speaking of our guide...Roland was excellent!! EXCELLENT!! He had just enough narrative to keep the tour interesting...his knowledge of the history, culture, even economy and geology of Scotland was amazing. Also, his stories, including appropriate voices for his characters was wonderful. In addition to that, he was a responsible tour guide, took care of our needs and anticipated our wants. He was kind, considerate respectful and amusing. When he picked us up on our last day, after changing the tire on the van as aggravating as that must have been for him, as soon as we got on the bus, he was back to his entertaining, amusing self! Obviously we would recommend this tour to anyone!! Thank you so much!! Madeline Dougherty
It is a long day out, but one gets to see a lot of the Scottish countryside and a bit of the Highlands. The vehicle was comfortable and there were a sufficient number of planned stops to stretch the legs. The tour ran on schedule. The tour guide was informative and we had a safe driver behind the wheel. PS. It was a good idea to do the hour long boat trip on Loch Ness.
Fantastic experience - brilliant guide. Comfortable sized group and bus - not to small for such a long journey. Only tour company offering this route - felt very personal as this company does not follow ALL the other tour companies to Loch Ness. Great value for the length of entertainment you get. 100% recommend this company for comfortable midi-coach (appropriate for the tour) excellent guide, unique route and the ticket price.
Our experience of recent trip to Loch Ness, Glencoe and highlands was fantastic. My family members and I agreed that it was value for money to join this day trip. The tour guide / driver was dedicated to his work to introduce the scenery and history of the places of visit. We covered 550 kms in a day! So you can imagine how tired it could be for our tour guide / driver but he performed so good that he carried his smiles all the time until all of us got off the bus at the end of the day.
Loved this trip. Not only are the highlands beautiful, but you get to see so much of the country in such a short amount of time (not to mention Loch Lomond AND Loch Ness). Definitely take the optional lake cruise... there is nothing to do back at the shore except buy Nessie souvenirs.
Excellent highland day trip you can have. Worth every penny!!Although it's rainy during the day. But we do have the rain stop during the loch ness boat trip. Driver is a kind lady. Very nice introduction from her.
It was a very long day but we had a great day the weather was lovely and hot, Also Norman our guide was very informative Not sure the boat trip at Loch Ness was worth the £13 but still very enjoyable.
