My husband and I thought that this was one of the best castles that we had seen. Loch Lomond is a beautiful, restful place. We saw amazing countryside with our informative guide, Sarah; plus, it was a sunny day. This tour is worth taking if like castles, lochs, and beautiful countryside.

Our guide basically knew everything about everything. He could tell a tale or facts about pretty much anything in the scenery around us or anything to do with Scotland, Scottish history, Nature, plants and much more. His name was Mac. When he wasnt reeling out the facts he was playing traditional highland music which related to something he was talking about. He was also traditionally dressed which if im honest i think he wears that even when hes not doing the tours by the sound of his own interesting expeditions. We went on a 40 minute or so mini hike up to the top of a hill looking down onto Loch Lomond. When we got to the top despite the rain our guide just perched onto a rock and whacked out his bagpipes and started playing away. Everything was so chilled. Youll enjoy really enjoy this tour if your not a boring sod.

The tour was wonderful in every way. The driver/guide was knowledgeable and pleasant and an excellent driver. The tour operator was the best from a clean, comfortable coach to changing our date at no charge due to a flight problem. We were amazed by Stirling Castle, about which we had no real expectations, and the countryside through which we drove was beautiful. It was a perfect tour choice for our day out of the city.

Rabbies tours were fantastic. If you are lucky enough to get Mckenzie as your driver you will have a sensational time. He will have you in fits of laughter with his story telling. The tour through the higlands is magical. The histo ry and exterior of Stirling Castle was also great but I will leave it up to you of what you think of the restoration of Stirling Castle inside!!! A great day tour!!!

The trip was excellent! The bus was full abd comfortable. Our driver/guide (Richard) was friendly, safe, knowledgeable and kept the tour on schedule. The views along the route were awesome. Stirling Castle is a must-see piece of history. And how amazing is it to stand on the "bonnie banks of Loch Lomond" that I've sung about all my life! Thanks for a memorable and enjoyable day!

We had a great day!
We didn't know what to expect and thought we had signed ourselves up for a granny day trip but no, it was fantastic!!
Ewan (our guide and driver) was brilliant, he was full of information and very funny.
We are from Edinburgh but still found the tour very informative and enjoyable.
We will recommend Rabbie's to our friends and family and will be booking again!!

What a wounderful day. Our driver/guide James passed on his passionate love of Scotland to us. Stirling Castle is amazing and getting out at Loch Lomond to walk in the beautiful setting was a joy.
James was very helpful and gave us some great ideas for other things to do. He advised if you wanted to see scottish dancing and hear traditional music to go on Tuesday evening to the Bongo Club in Edinburgh. We went and had a great night.

We were all very happy with Michael as our driver and tour guide. As the weather did not allow us to do the set itinerary, he made sure we still had a very full day and included some extra things not on the original itinerary. Very informative and also enjoyed the humour.
