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 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!
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.
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!
Great tour, nice castles. Ewen hope I spelled it right is a great story teller and told us a lot about what to do in the city on our way back. Thanks!
Beautiful country plus castles, can't really go wrong with that. I really like that these are small groups. Makes for a more personalized experience.
Wonderful. Our driver , Ally was the best! Told lots of stories and kept us entertained. The highlands are beautiful and played traditional music. Trying to describe the trip I was speechless.
Our tour guide Gill was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Highly recommend this tour to everyone!
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!
What a great tour! Our guide was very interesting, the Mercedes van was extremely comfortable and the small group size was just right.
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
The tour was fantastic! Our guide/driver John was outstanding - very knowledgable and entertaining!!
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.
Fabulous tour! Tour guide knowledgeable, entertaining, very nice. Good mix between providing history and playing music. Tour was interesting, stops frequent, van comfortable.
This tour is a great way to get to know a few of the castles in Scotland if you're visiting for a limited amount of time. James, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and a great storyteller. I highly recommend this tour!
We were able to see some amazing areas and views that really showcased Scotland's natural beauty. Our guide as also fantastic. James was full of stories and facts about the history of Scotland as well as the country in modern times. It was obvious that he loves his country and his job. You couldn't have asked for a better guide.
The one disappointment may have been that the site advertised being able to see Inverary Castle when really all you could do was take a picture of the house through the fence from the far end of the drive. Overall though, I don't regret in the least taking this day trip. It was well worth the time and money.
Excellent tour. Thoroughly enjoyed this day trip. Tour Guide, Mac was brilliant with his many historical facts and tales to add to the whole experience. I also appreciated how he cared for his country personally both in story-telling and being willing to keep Scotland clean and green through his own efforts.
This tour was fantastic , our guide was extremely knowledgable and friendley . Would defiantly rebook
