A great tour. A special shout out to Ewan B. our tour guide for being helpful, informative and a fantastic tour guide. The bus was comfortable, clean and made for a very pleasant journey. If you ever get chance, take this tour! The only way it could be better would be more time at Stirling Castle.
A most interesting, scenic and educational tour. Our tour guide, Ewan B was outstanding in giving us the history and tales of the region. Would strongly recommend.
Really enjoyed the tour. Lots of time to see the castle and get wonderful pictures of Loch Lomond. Our tour guide Ewen kept us entertained with Scottish history while on route. All in all a most enjoyable day.

Jan our tour guide makes this trip very informative and fun. I like the way he plays music related to historical information that he provided.
You can not expect a day trip more relaxing than this. When we arrived sterling castle it was raining heavily. The weather got better in the end of castle visit. The rest of the day was rain free and we enjoyed it. Gordon was very friendly, funny and very knowledgeable guide. We liked the way he introduced Scottish history and music. He also recommended us food and drinks in local restaurants, which was worth tasting. If you are looking for a day trip, i will definitely recommend it.
It was a very nice tour, Our tour director, Ewan was the best ever, He helped to make it a very good tour in that he related many interesting events in the history of scotland and was very entertaining. my best to him.
It was a beautiful Summer day and this enhanced the day tour. The guide/driver was very knowledgeable and her commentary enhanced the drive. There was ample time allowed at Stirling Castle so you could explore all areas. The drive from the Castle to Loch Lomond via the Highlands was beautiful and we stopped for lunch at a very picturesque village which had plenty of options available to purchase food.
Overall an excellent day was had and I would highly recommend it.
A wonderful tour with an enchanting guide from Rabbie's Tours. Stirling Castle was all I imagined a castle should be. I do wish we had a bit more time to take some pictures in Sterling, but it was a full day. Loch Lomond was beautiful as was the drive to and from.
Ewen was an excellent source of knowledge and history though out the entire day. He also showed kind patience in dealing with people who constantly arrived back to the van late. I would highly recommend the trio and with Ewen in particular. I learned so much about Scottish history Craig Bruce
Of the tours that we took from Edinburgh, this was by far our favorite. The castle staff was pretty incredible and were able to demonstrate an abbreviated knowledge of relevant history. We had great weather following a week of rain--don't know how you were able to arrange that but THANK YOU! The bus tour operator was genuine, funny and knowledgeable! Loved it!
I would recommend this day tour. Our driver Richard was very knowledgeable and interesting. The small buses are very comfortable and can go on narrow roads so you are not on the highways all the time. We had plenty of time at Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond. A really relaxing day.
Great tour ....Peter was a super guide and incredibly knowledgable . Despite the rain we had a wonderful day
Grant was an excellent guide for our day trip. His stories and friendly nature made the day one to remember!
The castle was small but very lovely. I wish I had more than one and a half hours there to see more of the surrounding town. Loch Lomand was very pretty. The short hike and stop at the pub made it a great day! Jan is a terrific guide with wonderful stories of Scotish history and music!
This was my favorite castle of all the ones I visited in Ireland and Scotland. You must do this! And our tour guide was very enthusiastic and told us interesting information about the history of Scotland. He even took us on a personalized walk to view Loch Lomond. I highly recommend.
The tour group was not too big , the mini bus driver / tour guide Sarah was friendly, humourous and knowledgeable . My son got nauseous during the winding drive at Loch Lomond and the bus stopped by the side right away for a few minutes .
Highly recommended !
The tour was great, and our tour guide (Bob) was so fun! He made the tour really interesting and made it a point to give us ample photo opportunities. It's a nice group size as well, as a small group makes timing more flexible. The views you get on the tour are amazing too. We really enjoyed it :)
We had an awesome trip with tour guide Ewen! He was very knowledgeable and funny! Look forward to another trip with you.
We could not have asked for a better tour guide. Aaron provided wonderful stories about Scotland I never would have learned without his commentary.
I enjoyed the trip a great deal. I thought the tour guide, George, was excellent. He seems very knowledgeable about everything, and had a great personality and voice. The transport vehicle was very comfortable, and Stirling Castle was especially interesting to me.
Wonderful trip. Our castle guide, Brian, really made the castle come alive
