I'm giving this tour a 5 star review because everything we saw was amazing and I would highly recommend everyone to go on this tour. Although I'm giving this tour a 5 star review, I do think there were two problems with the tour however, the two problems aren't large enough to warrant a lower star rating because everything we saw and everywhere we drove was amazing. The first problem was that the tour says it's a small group but in reality it was about 16 people, which is way too large of a group for me to be called a small group. We took another tour in England that was 5 people total which I would call a small group. There was a group of extremely loud and disrespectful people on the tour as well, but that doesn't reflect my value in this tour as I know that's not a representation of that tour. The second problem was I felt like we didn't get too long of a time at each location we stopped at. The tour should have been a 12 hour tour instead of 10 hours to give us more time at each location. Regardless of those two small problems, this really was an amazing tour and we got to see so many amazing things and places. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone if they're looking to see a lot.

A very enjoyable day trip from the city to see some stunning locations and scenery. The location of Kilchurn Castle was the real highlight for me - the scenery there is absolutely incredible. Also enjoyed the history and the guide was great.
Wonderful tour. Our driver/tour guide John was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. The places toured were gorgeous!
We had a fabulous time! I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide, John, was the best! He gave us a lot of history while we drove and kept everyone interested!

Gorgeous, interesting and fascinating. Loved this tour and will definitely be going on it again and other tours through Rabbies.
Our guide John was amazing! He gave us history, humor, music and went out of his way to accommodate everyone's needs. The trip was completely full, yet with only 16 people it was a very nice sized group. The weather was perfect, the castles we visited were all so different from each other....and the lochs were picture perfect. This is a great tour for those who want to see an overview of this beautiful country.

Loved, loved, loved this tour. Will definitely do it again, and also will go on other tours through Rabbie's tours.
My husband and I had a great time with Karen as our guide. The views were gorgeous. The weather didn't cooperate and the timing right before all the castles opened could have been better for our trip, but we enjoyed all the historical background I'm a historian and the beauty of the highlands. We'd love to do a longer tour next time!
Our tour was fantastic. Our guide Fran was knowledgeable and engaging. We had plenty of time to see each of the stops and she made picture stops for us along the way. I highly recommend this tour
This was a wonderful addition to our trip. Ally was an incredible guide and so knowledgeable on everything from ancient history, pop culture, to the landscape. We weren and #39;t able to go into a few castles, because we came during and #34;off season and #34;, but we still saw a lot. Highly recommend doing this day trip!
In spite of mist and rain, the day was a treat, with terrific commentary from Mac, whose litter collection at each of our stops was impressive as well. I will try the tour again in spring. Thanks for the information on where we were going, without the boring jokes and bad music that characterise many day trips.
This a must tour for everyone not familiar with Scotland. Our tour guide William was a descendant of Rob Roy and was truly knowledgable of Scottish history, particularly the Scottish highlands. his great sense of humor made hours seem like minutes---The Castle and church stops were awesome, but the Scottish Highlands dwarf everything in their beauty and majesty. William has a rare ability to help project you back to the time of Clans. But don't fail to ask him about the march of the penguins! This was a truly enjoyable day that I'd recommend to everyone---especially the Outlander fans like me! Enjoy!! By the way his driver was the best I've seen on my 10 day tour!
it was simply magical and excellent and I recommend it to everyone .. very nice tour and very comfortable :
What a great tour. I do wish we could have gone into more castles but the weather was difficult. Our driver/tour guide did an amazing job and we especially loved her stories and her enthusiasm for sharing Scotland's history was great.
Absolutely phenomenal! Our tour guide, Aaron Mohr, really made it the best! He clearly loves his job and his country and the tour reflects that. The weather throughout our day went from rainy to sunny and back to rainy, but he navigated it well and improvised with a delightful detour when we were unable to make it to one of our stops due to closed roads. This was definitely our favorite part of our honeymoon!
Loved the tour. Our guide was fabulous. Entertained us all day even through long driving periods. Scenery beautiful, stops great.
Nice tour! It was low-impact, with a lot of time in the van, but since we had arrived from the US the day before, we weren't in shape to do anything too taxing or time-consuming. This one, at about 8.5 hours, was just right. The driver, Duncan, was entertaining and well informed, and this tour got us into the Highlands, which our main tour did not. Good variety of scenery and history. We had decent weather, which makes all the difference.
Jonathan was an amazing tour guide! Full of great sights, great laughs, and great naps. I had a really fun time experiencing the highlands.
This was a wonderful way to see the highlands, lochs and castles!!! Yes, it was a cloudy, drizzly day in Scotland. But...our tour guide Alan was incredible. He had so much knowledge about the history of the area...and an incredible way of imparting that knowledge. He was quiet and let us relax when needed which was a huge plus!!! We got to see the most wonderful things....getting to wander around an ancient castle was so great. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Just be sure to dress accordingly and don't wear good shoes!!! It gets cold and muddy in November!!
I'm looking forward to doing other tours with this group in the future!!!!
My husband and I had a fabulous time on this tour. It is a long day, but such a wonderful way to see Scotland. We were only in Edinburgh for 48 hours and I am so glad we booked a tour otherwise we would have missed so much of what Scotland has to offer outside of the city. The bus is very comfortable, there are ample stops and Peter is an excellent guide, truly providing insight into the history of Scotland while being entertaining and personable. I would definitely book another tour when we return to Scotland!
I am so happy we decided to go on this tour! The castles were amazing! Unfortunately, Kilchurn castle was closed for the winter, but we still got to do a photo stop and see the beautiful exterior. Our tour guide, Peter, was very knowledgeable and made the trip enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves castles and lochs!
Go on this tour. You will not be disappointed. Our guide Aaron Mohr was fabulous. He was very knowledgeable on all the areas and castles we traveled to. I had one day for a day trip from Edinburgh and I am very glad I picked this one. Stunning scenery. Stately castles. Castle ruins. Lochs and a lake. Quaint Scottish towns. Morning mist. Evening sunset. What's not to love? I highly recommend this tour.
We only had one day to travel outside of Edinburgh and we are really glad that we chose this tour. Gordon, our driver and guide, was fantastic. He was entertaining and educational. There were 15 of us in a comfortable van and we were able to see the highlands, castles and lochs. The scenery was beautiful and overall it was a fantastic day.
