I went on this tour with a group of six friends, all of whom could not have been happier with it. Audrey, our guide, was vivacious, funny, and enthusiastic, as well as quite knowledgeable not only about the sites we visited but also Scottish history in general. She told us stories about major points in Scottish history while we drove from site to site, and was happy to answer our questions as well. All of the castles and towns were very interesting and picturesque, and we felt that we had a good amount of time at each of them. We could not recommend this tour enough! Special thanks to Audrey, who we hope knows how much we enjoyed having her as our guide.
I went with a group of six friends, all of whom could not have been happier with the tour. Our guide, Audrey (an Edinburgh native), was friendly, enthusiastic, funny, and knowledgeable. She was able to tell us all about the sites we visited, and on the drives between them she told us stories of major events in Scottish history. She was able to answer the questions we and the other tour attendees had, and was attentive to what we wanted to know and see. The highlight of the day was Kilchurn Castle (or the ruins thereof), an old residence of the Campbell family, which we were able to explore and climb around. It was one of the best one-day travel experiences any of us have had, and would do it again in a heartbeat. We also hope that Audrey knows how much we appreciated what a great tour guide she was! A tip for travelers: if you go in October, dress warmly! We were comfortable, but only because we knew to plan ahead.
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!! Extremely interesting and our tour guide was awesome and kept us entertained with his great knowledge of Scotland. Got to see beautiful landscapes and the castles were breathtaking. Definitely worth it!
I would highly recommend this trip just the right number of people and Pete our guide was excellent.
The tour was great! Our tour guide Shelby was both fun and informative. She made the experience very enjoyable. The countryside was breathtaking and the castles and lochs were inspiring. I would highly recommend Rabbies Tours
My daughter and I spent a day touring the West Highland Lochs and Castles in October 2013. This tour was a highlight of my holiday in Britain. Allan was a great tour guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm for Scotland and Scottish history was astonishing. Allan spoke for nearly 10 hours (well perhaps not quiet that long!) with great humour and intelligence. I can't recommend this trip highly enough. Excellent!
Excellent day out led by 2 different Tour guides with very different styles but both very knowledgeable and engaging the whole group. Really good value with lots of different sites visited and did not feel rushed in any way. The main road home around Loch Lomand was closed due to a serious accident but over the lunch stop at Loch Fyne, the guides came up with an alternative route home and were very innovative to ensure our trip was not spoiled and in fact made it unique. I would definitely recommend Rabbie Tours, who were the tour operator, to anyone with a limited time in Edinburgh and intend to use them again for a longer trip. The Minibus very comfortable and spacious for the small group size.
The tour was great. I was impressed the morning of our departure, because our names were already on a list and there was a staff member to direct us. The van was comfortable (so much more than a bus), our tour guide was entertaining, the sights were exactly what I wanted to see. I liked the music chosen for the trip and I will never forget the guide's explanation of the song "Loch Lomond" . Even drizzle did not ruin our trip.
Very good in general Hard to confirm tour in Scotland by phone
Amazing trip! Our guide, Lora, was wonderful! She was very knowledgeable and had a bubbly personality. She played music of the Highlands during the trip and then recommended several local artists CDs and a shop where we could find them. I fell in love with the Highlands and will definitely be returning!
Our guide was entertaining and informative. It was a great tour and is highly recommended.
The driver/tour commentator (Shelby) was excellent. She had a great sense of humour and gave us lots of interesting information about the tour specifically and Scotland in general.
