This tour was fantastic and our guide, Jann, was exceptional. Stirling Castle had special significance for me since my great grandfather was a Stirling from this region and this trip has been on my bucket list forever! Jann was very knowledgeable and made this one day excursion informative and fun...offering us lots of opportunities for great photographs and a quick hike on the West Highlands Trail. Highly recommend!
Really good tour. Usually tours can get a bit boring..but our guide was chirpy and kept us entertained throughout. Stirling castle is a must visit..even 90 minutes did not feel enough for the place. The loch's were also amazing.
This tour was OUTSTANDING ... primarily because of the tour guide Graham. He is a real treasure and made Scotland come alive for us.
We couldn't have asked for a better.
Thank you so much!
The day trip to Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond was a really great experience. The bus was new, modern and comfy, which is not unimportant when you're spending several hours in this vehicle. Our tour guide Graeme was not only a very nice man, he was also funny and really entertaining. During the tour he gave us much interesting information about scottish history, scottish society and mindset and about culture. For example I learned and saw where Sean Connery was born and raised. Although the tour was about 8 hours, it was not too exhausting, because there were several stops in the Highlands for taking pictures. And the two main stops at Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond were long enough to explore the grounds. Altogether it was a really good day trip, perfect choice, when you're visiting Edinburgh just for a few days and want to see a little bit more of Scotland. I highly recommend it!
The tour was great and made particularly special by our guide Bob who recounted many tales of Scottish history throughout the day. The scenery around Loch Lomond was breathtaking and the walk along the shores was the highlight for us. We travelled with a 14 year old and a pensioner and we were all entertained and enjoyed the day. I would thoroughly recommend this trip to all ages.
A guia foi excelente! Muito divertida e sabia o q estava falando, apresentando as histórias de uma forma bastante descontraída. Excelente forma de conhecer os arredores de Edimburgo. Recomendo!

A worthwhile tour. The stop at Sterling Castle is timed such that we could take the docent led tour - definitely recommend this tour of the Castle. The stop at Loch Lomond was good, but the highlight of this tour is Sterling Castle. Both the driver and tour guide were excellent and attentive.
Excellent guide and a nice view of some of the Highlands in just one day. The Rabbie's tour outfit is excellent. Mi did a second tour with them as a result!
We had a wonderful day with Jody and Norman, the sun was shining and the day was everything we expected it to be, which was a lot :- Lots of information and laughs, enough time to see everyting and comfortable bus.
Well worth the trip. The castle was amazing so were the 150 steps good for my leg muscles. View was worth it. Loch Lomond was wet so not so good but local pub was.

Seamus MacG really made the trip worthwhile. My wife and I enjoyed his thorough knowledge of history and his tremendous presentations. It would have been nowhere near as entertaining and informative without his insights and stories.
The tour guide James is fantastic. He explained the history in an interesting way like story that come alive! Great job!
Paul was a terrific guide and driver. There seemed to be no end to the information he had about the areas we were travelling through, and he is a natural born story teller. The pace of the trip is excellent and even the weather couldn't dampen our enthusiasm or Paul's!.
A wonderful Tour with two fantastic Guides. I enjoyed every minute. Stirling Castle is a spectacular Place to visit and Loch Lomond is so beautiful.
Great experience and fab guide wearing the traditional kilt! I highly recommend this tour of course!!!
We had a wonderful tour, thanks to out driver and guide Steven, who delighted us with humor, history and local and traditional music. He put right any misinformation that Hollywood may have exagerated and confirmed their historical accuracies Braveheart/Rob Roy. He organized the trip to avoid crowds while making the most of the good Scottish weather. Loch Loman was a little overcast but by the time we got to Trossachs National Park and the Hairy Coos, the sun was shining brightly. A lot of information was given and absorbed. Stirling Castle is a must see as well as the Kelpies. We had plenty of time to hike, refresh and explore. I highly recommend this tour. Oh, they have nice coaches too.
We were very pleased with our tour. Our guide was excellent and tried to overcome the inclement weather. Possibly the only drawback was that the meeting place was closed when we returned due to the late hour and there were no refreshments or facilities available. I would choose Viator again.
Pete was an excellent guide. A very enjoyable day!

This was a fantastic trip. The guide was excellent and knowledgeable. We got to take a short hike down to the water's edge at Loch Loman. Nice van and friendly group of tourists. Rabbie's Cafe where we me the van was incredibly convenient a block from the Balmour Hotel and 2 blocks from Waverley Station.
This tour was excellent. The tour guide made it very interesting. We saw a lot in a short time but I didn't feel rushed at any stage. Well recommended
Tour was wonderful...my favorite part of the trip! Our guide Jonathan was very knowledgeable, friendly and personable! We ran into fog when heading to our first stop, Stirling Castle, so we were not able to get a lot of pictures, so Jonathan stopped back by on the way home so we could take a few! We made a few extra stops along the way to take pictures and get up close and personal with the Highland Cows!! They are a must...quite adorable!! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone...and especially having Jonathan as your guide!
Very nice experience, Organizers were very helpful
Driver uncle was very sweet person and he knew every bit of history. Forgot hi name Thoroughly enjoyed and will definitely recommend to friends :
