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!

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.

Gillian was awesome. Weather didn't cooperate but we still had a great time. Saw so much of the countryside, with Gillian's historic narration as we drove around. Plenty of time to get out and do things too!

Besides the glorious Scotland scenery, our guide Jonathan made it all come to life with his narrative. He must be an actor at heart, lovely, amusing, entertaining. What every tourist wants with the bonus of a new found friend. Thank you
