Really enjoyed the tour to St. Andrews and all the stops along the way. Driver was very knowledgeable, helpful and courteous.
Nice combination of sights and free time. John was a great guide, with lots of knowledge, and lots of laughs. We enjoyed seeing Fife and St. Andrews, since it was so different from the Highlands.
Great Day and wonderful tour. Jamie was an excellent guide and made the trip more worthwhile. I am recommending Rabbies to all of our friends and to my travel agent!
Seeing the Old Course at St. Andrews was the highlight of my trip in Scotland. I wish I had more time to spend on the course but 2 and a half hour was pretty good though. Also, thumbs up to our driver who was funny and interesting.
Our guide for the day was Penny, she had great local knowledge and a great sense of humor. A nice amount of time at each stop. We would highly recommend this trip.
We had a great day going to St. Andrews and all the stops we made. Our tour guide Bob was extremely informative and funny. The single seating in the bus gave everyone a window seat.
Perfect balance in terms of distance to cover and time for sightseeing. It was a very informative trip. Lots of thanks to our guide Derek (hope I put it right) and his sense of humor.
Our bus driver, Mike, was fabulous. What an incredible experience. My son particularly loved the ongoing Mary Queen of Scots story as it unfolded when we came across historically relevant sites. I'd highly recommend the trip to anybody. Wish I'd gotten the fish and chips in Anstruther. My only regret...
Excellent driver/guide with good mix of history, culture and humour in commentary. Itinerary as described with a few extras.
Our driver was "unique", funny, different and a overall good driver. We enjoyed the tour and her history lesson.
good experience, Mr. Eric he is very good and cheerful, i will recommend for friend if they come to Scottland and to vist St. Andrew
Great small group tour experience, even though the weather was terrible. Bus was nice and small, not too many people on board. Our guide was great and very knowledgeable/helpful. We had plenty of time in the small village we stopped in along the way to get coffee and look around. Also had plenty of time in St Andrews to shop, get pics on the golf course, visit the castle and cathedral. My boyfriend and I are mid 20's, the group was primarily middle aged folks, but it was still fun!! Highly recommend, driving up there in terrible weather wouldn't be so easy if you are from the states.
One of the best tours, I have ever taken. Our tour guide was fantastic. Her knowledge of Scottish History was amazing. The scenery along with her naratives made for a very enjoyable day.
We had a great experience with Rabbie's! Alistair was a wonderful guide and took great care of us, giving us lots of information and advice about the areas we were stopping in and about shopping in St. Andrew's. Great day!
This was a fantastic day trip and I would highly recommend it for anyone with limited time in Scotland. If you are interested in a short history of Scotland, visiting the 'home of golf' at St Andrews and viewing some amazing scenery. Take this tour without hesitation. The guide was knowledgeable, entertaining and provided enough interesting Scottish history without bombarding you with too much information. I loved it!
Being a golfer this was the highlight of our trip to Scotland.
Really enjoyed the trip, also there was an air display on the day which added to the occasion.
The trip was perfect for my wife and myself, and the driver was first rate.
This was a very wonderful trip, very educational, besides the tour guide being very generous with his stops for photos. The places we visited were absolutely beautiful and to our surprise we even stopped in a little village named Falkland, which in our mind had to be the most beautiful gardens in Scotland. Fabulous. It was our favorite day!
I have seen this on tv so many times that it was actually surreal being there!!! Fantastic trip and well worth the time. St. Andrews is a beautiful place. If you have the chance, go and try to get Derrick as your tour guide!!!! Great sense of humor............
If you only have one day to visit St. Andrews, and you don't want to linger too long, this is a very good tour. Although, we didn't have a long time in St. Andrews itself, we really enjoyed this tour, especially the scenery driving through the little towns along the way in the "Kingdom of Fife". We had the opporutnity to visit the Falkland Castle which was our first castle visit in Scotland. Our guide "Ali" made the tour really interesting. We were amazed at his detailed descriptions, of historical events and memorable dates, as well as his wealth of knowledge about the Fife area. He also introduced us to Scotland's Celebrity - no ....not Sean Connery, but Scotland's hairy cow, "Hamish".

This is truly an old Medival city. The remains of the cathedral and the castle on the North Sea were amazing to see. Walking through St. Andrews University was a great experience. It was worth it to view the golf course where golf first began. We traveled threw little fishing villages on our way to St. Andrews with our guide, Ollie, giving us a history lesson.
