it was a very long day but worth every penny
The Highlands tour was excellent - our guide Gill was wonderful, informative, and the ride was gorgeous! An excellent way to see a large part of the country.
A great trip. It was a wonderful being so close to nature. A spiritual uplifting trip that touches your soul. Great tour. Highly recommended.
The trip was great! We had Gill and she was fantastic and very knowledgable. She was able to tell us legends, talk about the history of the areas and played some local music. The scenery was beautiful and it was well worth the long day.
The best excursion and guide. Matthew was extremely friendly, full of interesting facts and stories, and made the excursion one of the best. The scenery was absolutely beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and recommend it and the company.
Our driver-cum-guide, AARON, was OUTSTANDING!!! We went on the Highlands-Loch Ness day trip on June 15, and every minute on and off the bus was well spent, because of Aaron's stories, anecdotes, lessons on Scottish history, etc. We have travelled the world, and very rarely have we come across such a guide, who has left a mark. We still talk about this trip as one of the most remarkable in our lives - and a major factor was Aaron. I'm tempted to give out some of his stories to my students in Texas, and will continue to do so ...
The sights are breathtaking! But the best part of the tour was our guide, Grant. He immediately put all of us at ease, made sure we were safely buckled in, and tailored the 12-hr tour to what we expected. His knowledge of history and local folklore is immense and entertaining. Trivia, theatrics, and a great personality/attitude rounded up this great tour.
This tour is really awesome! We really love our guide Duncan who was really good at his work and also had very good humours. We really recommend this tour to everyone who wishes to have a quick view of the beautiful highland Scotland
We loved this tour. Our guide, Dave, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. My 14-year-old daughter said this was the best part of our trip to Scotland, and I'd have to agree. It really makes the experience so much richer having all the stories to go with the incredible scenery.
If you are environmentally conscious, Rabbies is a great choice. While we were having lunch or taking in the scenery, Dave was out picking up litter. The company also contributes to environmental charities to help balance their impact on the environment.
I think it's a good sign to hear an employee speak highly of their employer, and Dave is obviously very happy working with Rabbies.
I would heartily recommend this tour and I hope you're lucky enough to have Dave as your tour guide.

So much beauty on this tour! Raw, wild and at times, unexpected. The folks at the tour company really know how to do this right! With many folks wanting to do this day tour, the small groups is absolutely the way to go!
Our guide was Johnathan. As soon as he realized there were 5 vans booked to do the same tour, he immediately asked us if he could switch the itinerary around so that we wouldn't have to contend with the crowds. We agreed and it was a wise decision. Johnathan kept up a steady stream of banter full of facts, stories, jokes and added a nice touch with musical interludes he selected to help us absorb the atmosphere of the sights and places we visited. He was also sensitive to when our group was tired and fell to napping in which case he would play soothing music and kept his comments to a minimum. Very professional, knowledgeable and a lot of fun! Thanks Johnathan and local tour copmany! Oh, and the coffee and pastries at the coffee shop where the tour starts are also v good so grab some while waiting to board your van!
At Loch Ness, though we had no Nessie sightings, my husband and I struck up a conversation with a man who turned out to be William Jobes, who has been visiting the loch for 49 years and has seen what he claims to be Nessie and published some photos he captured of the elusive creature. He shared stories of his personal experiences and even gave us each a laminated copy of his published photos. That was a unique, unexpected and enjoyable turn of events!
Had a great time, tour guide Alan was very informative and told us some great historical stories. Would highly recommend this tour.
This was a fantastic tour and Grant was an amazing tour guide and story teller providing us the history of Scotland and our stops along with personal insights. We stopped at a number of other sites not listed in the brouchre for pictures which were well worth it and/or rest stops and still stayed on schedule. The sights, especially Glen Coe are breathtaking. I highly reccomend this tour and you will be very lucky if you get Grant as your guide. After this I can't wait to come back and take one of the multi-day tours of Scotland. A beautiful country either lovely people.
Like always Viator organized perfect trip .Highlands day trip was perfect. Mercedes bus with 16 passengers. Our driver Jonnatan amaizing with 12 hours entertaining . Rabbies agency have done very good job. Thank you all. Gordan and Anita
I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a quick glimpse of all that Scotland has to offer! Grant was our tour guide, and he was hilarious and completely passionate about Scotland. He made it seem like the most interesting place on earth, and now I'm beginning to agree! The small tour was great, and my friend and I commented several times how glad we were that we chose this tour and not one of the bigger ones. We are going back soon for a second dose of one of the coolest places I've ever been.
Beautiful and entertaining trip. If all your tour guides are half as good as Grant, your customers will be very lucky. It's obvious he researched and shared his love for Scotland and her history.
Such an amazing tour! It really made my trip to Edinburgh that much more enjoyable! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is planning to visit!!!
Loch Ness Tour was excellent and total value for money. Did boating and soaked up all the beauty on the way both ways.
Although there was some rain, the guide, Eric, and the highlands were superb. Highly recommend this tour.
This tour gave a great view of the variety of Scotland, from Edinburgh city views to the scarcely populated highlands. Along the journey, Sandy, our driver/tour guide also provided a spectacular summary of Scottish history, including both facts and legends. He was also most willing to follow up in conversations started by the passengers, and to answer whatever questions were provided along the way.
The 12-hour drive was a long one, but split into convenient intervals. Also the bus was comfortable, as advertised, which made it possible to enjoy the whole journey. The optional Loch Ness boat trip was very nice as well, even though seating on the boat was a bit crowded somewhat due to weather passengers mostly preferred the indoors seating, and only briefly visited the sun deck.
