I cannot say enough about our trip, it was everything I expected it to be and more. Our tour guide (Alan) was so entertaining and looked every bit the Scotsman right down to his kilt. He chatted with us the entire time, keeping it interesting and informative and he had a terrific sense of humour. My two sons (25 and 27) accompanied me they groaned when I had first told them we'd be on a 'bus tour' over 12 hours long. Like me, they were thoroughly entertained and hated to leave Alan and the other new 'friends' we made on the tour. Mother Nature didn't co operate completely but heck, I was expecting that. I was pleased that for 3/4 of the day, it was warm and sunny and I was able to see the white capped mountains in the highlands. I would love to return and go when the heather is bright purple. When we were there, it was dark brown good thing I have a vivid imagination) Anyway, I would highly recommend this wonderful day trip. Go for it, you won't be sorry!
Lovely day, stayed sunny for most of the day which is somewhat rare it seems..!! Scotland is indeed beautiful, see my review on Trip Advisor, will use Rabbie's again next time in Edinburgh.
We enjoyed the tour very much, really does give you an idea of what the Highlands are like in one day, if that is all the time you can manage, you will want to come back for more though. Enjoyed the small groups.
This was a wonderful taste of the Highlands and our guide was terrific - Ian, I believe. His narrative and descriptions were entrancing and he was very responsive to our group's questions and interests. We would highly recommend this tour - the scenery was unbeatable and we liked the inclusion of the little nature walks on some of our stops.
A definite must do !!! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny !
Our guide Duncan was FANTASTIC! True Scottish charm and amazing knowledge, his story telling was WORLD class and he made every single mile memorable!
This is an excellent tour - very interesting, great guide and spectacular scenery. It was a little difficult to find the tour start area as the streets in Edinburgh are numbered differently from ours in the US. Other than that, the trip was perfect. Thank you.
With two other friends, we went on the day trip to the Highland Lochs, Glens and Whisky on the 21st August 2012. It was simply superb, and my friends and I recommend it unreservedly. The tour guide, Al, was excellent and very very funny. And, the same was true for the driver, Steve. Great day, trip and people.
It was a lovely trip and just what we were hoping for. Our driver Jonathan was fun and full of information. We're very glad we took this tour.
Great day with a fun tour guide. Nice size group and fun stops. Good way to see some of the country.
It was a very good experience. My guide, Duncan, was a very knowledgeable and nice guy Definitely recommended.
The day long trip was very enjoyable. Our driver/guide, Mike, was entertaining and educational. A great Scottish story teller.
Mike walked the trails with us, explaining the history, sights and folklore.
Great scenery, fun and knowledgeable guide made for a fantastic day trip! Thank you.
This was excellent. The guides were fantastic. I loved the smaller size of the tour. You should offer more small group options.
This was a wonderful trip! The company was excellent and we all loved our tour guide, Sarah! I am so glad I took this trip; if not I would have missed a fab experience, seeing the Highlands and all its beauty! It was a worthwhile trip and I am so glad I booked it your company.
This day gives you Scotland.... With a guide as Shalby you have a beautiful day !!!!! This trip is THE trip from Edinburg. Thanks Viator...

cant wait to come back to scotland so much too see and do .
thankyou for a really great day
Our guide James was terrific.He was fun and most knowledgeable in Scottish history. I wish you had a day trip that would include the Great Glen.I would recommend your tours highly.
We really loved this trip. Our guide was fantastic and seem to have a world of knowledge. He was friendly and we enjoyed the local Scottish music that filled in the rare moments when he wasn’t educating us on Scottish history!! Would do this trip again!!!
We took this tour on a somewhat rainy September day and it was fabulous. Our guide, Dave, has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things Scottish. He shared many stories during our drives to each stop which made the day whiz by! First stop, Dunkeld, included time for tea and scones or just exploring the quaint village; next stop at Hermitage Park and hike to the waterfall was a great diversion. Dave was able to answer every question my tree-loving husband had about the forest; the distillery stop was fun and educational, quickly followed by a lunch stop in Pitlochry - we dined at the Old Mill Inn - good burgers. Next stops included fabulous overlook of Loch Tummel and Glencoe Mtns and a stop in a village with time for more tea and scones! This trip was the highlight of our 9-day Scottish vacation. Our 21-year old son was with us and he loved it! We highly recommend!
This was the high point of my 12-day vacation in Scotland, without a doubt. Ian, the driver, was a truly talented storyteller, both for Scottish history in general and the specific sights we visited. The walk in the Hermitage was simply breathtaking and a perfect balance to the time spent riding. Being at the Queen's View is like standing inside a postcard. The whisky tour is a fascinating insight into the business. I took four separate tours with Rabbies and thought this one was by far the best.
