Had a really great day with Rabbie's Trail Burners and Jonathon the tour guide was excellent, friendly, entertaining and informative. I think I had a smile on my face the whole way there as such beautiful scenery, I have been around Scotland and in the Highlands twice but this was something else! First stop was Loch Lomond for some photographs, then a stop at Loch Tulla and then Glencoe. I have never seen Glencoe look so beautiful, black mountains net to sunlit mountains covered in snow and shrouded at the top in mist, so atmospheric and great for photographers. Then on to Fort Augustus for lunch and on to Loch Ness where some folk to a boat ride but I went with the tour guide and others to photograph Urquhart castle. We stopped off in Pitlochry for a wee dram and then came back via Aviemore and the Cairngorms, saw Stirling castle lit up in the distance and back to Glasgow. I am not one for long journeys but this was a breeze, it didn't feel one bit long at all, I enjoyed the whole day immensely. I will put some photographs up soon :)
This tour was amazing! It was great to see that much of Scotland and our tour guide Nicola could not have been better!
So glad we booked the tour, it was a fantastic day, worth every penny. So much to see. Learnt a lot of history from our great tour guide. Definately booking again in the near future. It also inspired my partner wanting to go up to Scotland for skiing in Ben Nevis! A beautiful part of the world. Going up to Scotland again in the summer. If any one reading this and is hesitating....don't , go for it you won't be disappointed.
Fantastic! Our guide, Jane, was so friendly and full of information. A great small tour with beautiful sites and interesting facts.
We loved this tour! Jane, our tour guide was amazing! As well as driving us around all day, she told us much of the history of the area and we learnt heaps! In-between, she played Scottish music from traditional to modern whilst still using the traditional instruments. We were given time to stop and take photos at the best places and had plenty of time also to have a walk and a nice leisurely lunch. We loved this tour so much that we were hoping that we would get Jane when we went on another tour a couple of days later - and we did! This tour comes highly recommended, especially if you don't have much time to get around on your own and have a nice leisurely look at Scotland.
excellent tour - a very educational guide/driver, will surely recomment this tour to other people
Awesome tour company and guide! Hands down Rabbie's Trail Burners is the best. We loved that we were able to do this in a small group and had flexibility to stop and take pictures.
The pace was good, made the most of a rainy day.
This tour was amazing, and was a great way to see Scotland in such a short amount of time. The guides were very knowledgeable and went above and beyond for all of us. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Both my dad and I enjoyed this trip immensely. The places we went were v interesting and made all the more so by our guide, 'Party Pete', as his passion and knowledge for the history of Scotland was contagious; he was also a most affable chap. We left wanting to know so much more about Scottish history and will no doubt come back and use Rabbies again.
Really nice tour, totally worth the money.
Thank you for this amazing experience!! The tour guide and driver were lovely people, providing us with very interesting and useful information about Scotland's history etc. Got to meet some nice people from other countries as well. A fun trip altogether!
This was one of these best tours I have ever gone on. If you are short on time and want to see the Isle of Skye in comfort then this tour is for you. For only 3 days you actually see a vast amount of Skye and the Scottish highlands, Loch Ness and many many other amazing places along the way.
Our group was only 10 people and we were in a medium sized bus which was very comfortable, the small group made it easy to get to know people and have one on one time with the tour guide, if you want to. There are heaps of photo stops, toilet breaks and places to get food/drinks. Eric, our amazing tour guide, had an impressive amount of knowledge on Scotland and it's history and information about each place we visited. He really made the tour what it is - a very personable, funny guy who accommodates everyone's needs and answers anyone's questions. He was so helpful, passionate and really made the tour exciting all of the time, even when we were just cruising for a couple of hours on the bus to our next stop.
The acommodation is in a town called Portree and the B and B we were put in was excellent. Fantastic view of the surrounding area and harbour of Portree, with a friendly and welcoming owner who cooked the most delicious breakfasts.
Overall this was a well organised, informative, fun and enjoyable tour conducted by a company called Rabbies. I highly recommend it and truly believe I got the most out of Skye and Northern Scotland etc in the short time I had. 5 out of 5!
It was a great tour which I would highly recommend to anyone that wants to get a taste of Scotland.
Wonderful day with breathtaking scenery and the history to give context to the events in Scottish history. I'm sure that if you did this tour in summer it would still be breathtaking, doing this tour in February (Winter season) gives you the chance to see Scotland at it's most beautiful and natural.
