Had a great time' the guide was knowledgable, funny and managed to get us back to Edinburgh within a reasonable time when all the roads were closed. It was great
Jan was our tour guide and he was very accommodating to our needs. Highly recommended this tour.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Scotland and had a great sense of humor.
The lochs were gorgeous and the castles picturesque. The mountains and views were spectacular. Wonderful day!
This tour was outstanding! Gillian our driver/guide was great. Very knowledgeable about the history of what we were seeing. Lots of interesting stories about the history of the area.
I did two tours during my stay in Edinburgh, and both were from Viator. The coach is a very comfortable van, which is great for a full day of driving around, and my guide for this tour was Gordon. He knew a lot about the different castles we visited, and took us to the Campbell Castle ruin, Duone Castle, and Inveraray Castle, in addition to Loch Lubnaig, Loch Lomond, and through some truly picturesque scenery. Definitely recommend this tour!
We had a delightful and educational time while with Jillian. Took very good care of our group especailly when we had to change routes due to tragec accident ahead of us. We wasted no time. Well done.
My tour guide Alan was awesome! I was so impressed with his knowledge of Scottish history and his ability to tell amazing stories about everything we were seeing. Best tour ever!
The tour was exactly what I wanted and more. James was the perfect tour guide. He was funny, informative and a wonderful ambassador for Scotland tourism. I would highly recommend this tour and if you goask to be with James!
It was a great tour. Gordon was our tour guide. He's very knowledgeable and friendly.
This day tour was exquisite. Arron, our tour guide, was simply amazing. He regaled us with enticing stories and history of Scotland throughout the day. He was personable and efficient. We saw all the castles on the tour and much of the West Highlands. It rained on and off throughout the day, and Arron made the best of the conditions to ensure we had a high quality experience and that our time was optimized. I would definitely book another tour with this company. 5 stars!
Highlands lochs and castles with Gill was a wonderful tour. Gill gave us lots of information, stories and even music to illustrate Scottish history. She made the trip fun for all in a very relaxed and informative manner and was very flexible about how much time we wanted at each spot. The highlight was Kilchurn - slightly off the beaten track. The tour operator was very organized. It was a great day!
This tour was well worth the time and money spent. It was very enjoyable and informative. Our guide Peter C. was very plessant and entertaining. He really knew the history of the sites we visited.
Have waited a long time to actually visit Inverarry sp? and it was well worth it. A bit disappointed we didn't stop at Stirling Castle. Would have traded some of the stops for it.
This tour was breathtaking! From the castles to the lochs, the sights were fantastic. Our driver,Johnathan , was funny and engaging. He was also knowledgeable and provided a great deal of information to us. He was also accommodating. The visit to Inverary was amazing. If you are interested, there is a good BBC show featuring this estate that can really get you ready for this visit. Downton Abbey fans will recognize this location from the deer stalking episode, Outlander fans will love visiting the location used as castle Leoch. All in all, a fabulous tour!
Our guide Mike was a major history buff and a great storyteller! We had a great time! 10 hours total and it flew by. He gave us options at some stops and we didn't feel rushed at all. Would use Rabbies again for sure!
Driver Aaron made the trip informative and fun beautiful scenery.
Not a trip for children under 12 not enough for them and a lot of driving on small roads with turns and hills causing one child to get sick.
I just returned from the western highlands and castles day tour out of Edinburgh. What a great trip. Our driver Euan was wonderful and the places we stopped were beautiful. We stopped at the smaller out of the way spots that big coaches with 40 do not visit. And only 12 of us on the bus meant fast exits to see the attractions. I have been on a dozen tours in the past few weeks. This one has been the best by far.
Our guide was amazing! Douglas was so knowledgable and kept the history interesting and engaging. The route was perfect too! I saw so many lochs. I liked the pacing. Everything is so beautiful. The group size felt comfortable. Overall, this is a fantastic tour!
WOW!! Allen our guide made the West Highland Lochs and Castles very real and memorable. He answered all of our questions, gave us the history of what we were seeing and enjoyed what he was doing. Thanks Allen for making our first tour of Scotland so wonderful and wanting to return.
