The trip was beautiful. I would definitely recommend it. Both Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond were breathtaking. Ewan, my tour guide, was very entertaining, knowledgeable, and personable. He added a lot to the overall experience. I will definitely go again when I come back for vacation.
Overall great tour. The castle was a bit bare as castles go, but the details they have and are adding were well explained by great castle staff. The driver/guide was awesome. She stopped to feed some highland cows an apple and we got to pet them like they were big puppy-dogs. Also had a few stops in small towns where the people in the pubs and shops were lovely and the food was great.
Myself and my partner booked on this trip as part of a long weekend to Edinburgh . Our driver and Guide was Karen who was very informative and friendly . The scenery once the mist had cleared was amazing . I would go again without a doubt and would recommend anyone else visiting scotland to try one of these tours
Great tour, wish we had more time in Sterling Castle, but it is a long day trip anyway. Neil our guide was exceptionally intelligent and really made the tour outstanding
This was the perfect day trip! Eric, our tour guide, was excellent - I wish I could have kept him along for the rest of our time in Edinburgh. His wealth of knowledge about his home country from a cultural, historical, geological, and political perspective is what made this day so special. I hope other tour guides and people can learn from his knowledge.
The sites are impressive too, even in winter. Stirling castle was everything we expected it to be and the quaintness of the Highlands was the perfect contradiction to our city visit. Viator and Rabbies made this incredibly easy and I would travel again with these organizations.
The tour guide, Kevin, was excellent! Made the tour so enriching and interesting, with his stories and sense of humour.
It was absolutely amazing! Our guide was great - very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and attentive! Thank you very much!
Excellent tour. Guide was great! Would recommend to anyone who wants to see Scots history.
We really enjoyed this trip, the guide was very informative. we also did a bit of hill walking which we also enjoyed very much and the sight seeing was amazing.
Abosolutely amazing! I chose this tour first because I wanted to go to Stirling Castle so badly. I wish we had gone to Wallace Monument and spend some time there as well. Loved it so much!
The site mentioned a discount card for attractions, restaurants and shops but we never received it! But we did pay less to go to Stirling.
Loch Lomond: I didn't go on the cruise but I didn't have to! I ebjoyed the beautiful landscape from land. Absolutely amazing and well worth it!
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.
