Amazing tour and an even better guide! Robin was the perfect guide! From the history, stories and music our group got an unforgettable tour. Thanks so much!
This tour was terrific! Our driver/guide Górdan was highly knowledgable and was able to impart a lot of information about Scotland and the Gaelic language to us. Being only a small tour of 16 makes a noticeable positive difference. Sit in the front seat for the best uninterrupted view!
Absolutely fantastic tour. Eric, our guide was wonderful-full of information and has a wonderful singing voice. Beautiful scenery and Loch Ness was great. Would highly recommend the boat trip over Loch Ness-it is extra but very inexpensive and well worth it. Boat trip is a full hour on the Loch
Great trip, despite the rainy weather. Jonathan, our guide, was fantastic. This was one of the highlights of our two week trip to the UK.
We absolutely loved our trip. The only drawback was that we realized that there was so much more to see and maybe should have looked at a longer excursion. Jonathon was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed his commentary. Well done!
Our guide was wonderful, felt we truly received a quality overview in a short time
excellent trip with really great driver-guide! Johnatan was an excellent!
Wonderful tour, excellent tour guide Joe I think - worth every penny! When the bus stops at the first stop and you have the opportunity to go to the town bakery to buy lunch for the trip - do it! Great food and you'll be happy to have lunch with you, particularly if you go on the Loch Ness boat tour.
Our tour was excellent! It well exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Dave O., provided the knowledge and experience that made our trip so enjoyable. His personality, knowledge of history and the area were what made the excursion. Cheers to Dave O.!
The tour was amazing. Beautiful scenery with a personal touch. Jonathan is the absolute best tour guide. Would recommend Rabbie's and Jonathan to everyone..
Just an incredible experience! We travelled in early July, the scenery and the weather was perfect. If you want to see large rolling hills and mountains of green, then this is the tour for you! Glencoe was amazing. We also stopped at some other lochs since, Jonathan, our amazing tour guide and driver led us up to Loch Ness in a different direction so that we did not hit it when all of the other tour guides were present. Ate amazing fish and chips lunch at the boathouse. Did not take the boat ride so we had time for lunch and looking in a couple of shops. Jonathan was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. He made everyone feel right at home from the get go. We were also able to see a ruined castle which was not on the itinerary. Loved it. Thanks so much victor, Rabbies tour company and Jonathan for a great tour experience!
We really enjoyed it. Arron was our driver and he was really safe especially since I had motion sickness and his playlist was great! Definitely a great experience

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.
