I was on my way to a holiday on the Shetland Isles, and as I was able to start my vacation a few days earlier, I stayed two extra nights in Glasgow and did this tour on one day through the Highlands.
Normally, I'm very apprehensive about "organised group travel", but the indication of "small group" did convince me to try it, and I was not disappointed.
The driver, John, was friendly and welcoming and did know lots about the history and stories of the places we saw and passed by.
The places we saw were just stunning in scenery, and John's knowledgeable comments added another perspective to the area, one it would have been impossible to get if I had taken a self-drive tour.
The tour is a long nearly 12-hour program, but I can't understand comments I read from people who complain about that, because if you're unhappy with a 12-hour tour, why book it then instead of choosing a shorter tour? I thought the duration was great, especially as you get breaks and possibilities to stretch your legs and get some food.
I would certainly recommend this tour, and also would consider doing another tour with this company on my next visit to Scotland.
Very nice day tour from Glasgow. We visited so many beautiful places in Scotland in only 12 hours- Highlands with magnificent mountain views, Loch Ness with one hour cruise to Urquhart Castle, Loch Lomond, Inverness and two small scottish villages. We had lot of fun, took lot of pictures and had also time for shopping. We were back at George Square at 19.30. The weather was fine, it was sunny all day. We had a great guide, John, who was very helpful and funny. In my opinion, this trip is a must do when you are in Glasgow.

Partimos desde Glasgow porque imaginamos que las distancias se acortarían para realizar el recorrido. Es una atracción que tienen bien merecido el día completo de duración.
El guía del operador del tour (Rabbie's Trail Burners) reservado por este medio fue EXCELENTE. En todo momento nos entretuvo con la historia de cada uno de los lugares frecuentados, la historia general de Escocia y particular de las Highlands.
A cada pregunta realizada, encontraba una respuesta acertada. Durante todo el viaje buscó hacer que el grupo participe de las atracciones, ademas de hacer entretenida la jornada, sumando comentarios y chistes.
La navegación por el Loch Ness es opcional y por ende tiene un costo adicional que se abona en el momento. Realmente a los fines de la navegación en sí, no la realizaría. Sin embargo, para obtener unas bellas vistas del Urquhart Castle realmente lo recomiendo.
Al momento de parar a almorzar y previo a llegar al Loch Ness, recomiendo mirar con cuidado el restaurante al cual ingresar.
We had a fantastic daytrip into the highlands . We had several longer and shorter stops to take pictures. The sightseeing and views are fantastic. The driver was very friendly and told many things about Scotland and his history. I can recommend this trip to everybody who is visiting Glasgow
This was an amazing trip. I was in awe of the magnificent landscapes and sheer beauty of the places we visited. I feel so lucky to have gotten the tour guide we did, Michael from rabbis, he was such a nice friendly guy and extremely knowledgeable in Scottish history and facts about the flora and fauna around the sights. I would recommend this tour for anyone who wants to pack in loads and only has a short time to do it.
awesome and our guide john was just fabulous.would recomend this tour as a must if you visit scotland
Extremely fun and enjoyable, this trip was worth every penny, great value for money and our guide, Michael, was a fabulous storyteller and super informative, not boring at all (as some guides can be) he kept us entertained with the intense history of Scotland . I cannot recommend this tour enough. Gorgeous scenery, we did the boat tour of Loch Ness, and were blown away by the beauty of the highlands. The BEST way to see Scotland when you aren't renting a car. I will be sure to choose viator again when visiting other countries. No doubt.
Rabbie tours, and our driver were excellent! Absolutely beautiful drive to the Highlands, lots of Glencoe history, boat ride on Loch Ness, and a great visit to Pitlochery! Harris Tweed sales abound!!! Only downside was the first part of the trip along the West Coast of Loch Lomond was a repeat for us, as we had driven part of that route earlier to Oban, but was still very nice. Highly recommended!
The trip was really well organized (do not be late for meeting point ! they leave on time !) the guide excellent, and the fact to be in a minibus is a plus too. Nice landscapes, my son and I did really enjoy Scotland Highlands and Lochness...Good value for money considering that the tour last 12 hours !
This was a very well organised trip. John, the guide, was very knowledgeable and kept everyone interested with stories and anecdotes on the way. He managed to pick ideal stops for photo opportunities whilst avoiding the convoys of other coaches and tours on the road. He was helpful at all times, accommodating most requests within the busy time schedule for the day. The music quiz on the latter part of the journey was very enjoyable, and everyone appeared to have a great time. I would thoroughly recommend this trip.
It was absolutely awesome, I would definitely recommend it to my friends. John you were great......keep the hard work!
This tour was FABULOUS! Tour guide John McDermott was incredible! He was knowledgeable, funny, patient, and full of life! He was equally as entertaining as the beautiful and captivating landscape! I highly recommend Rabbie's to all who visit Scotland.
Great guide, interesting and funny. Tour was very well organised. A great way to get an overview of the Highlands.
We enjoyed this trip. We recommend it. George our tour guide was amazing!
Everything was lovely.
The history, the transport, the guide.
Thank you for the beautiful experience.
One of the best sightseeing tours I have ever made. Thanks to Rabbie's Trail burners.
Crabbie's was absolutely fantastic! There was a fair amount of sitting on a bus but our guide made up for it by telling us a lot of Scottish history and showing us amazing scenery. Even in the middle of winter this tour was fantastic.
Booked this trip for my little sister who had never been in Scotland and wished to visit Loch Ness. Service was great, driver/guide was lovely and she had the best time. Will be booking again for the rest of the family as we were quite jealous!
Fantastic tour. It was the off season so there were only 7 of us and I bought my ticket 2 days before. Our tour guide Nichola was great, lots of knowledge and SUV made everything flow great. Even with the tunes! The snow on the mountains was beautiful, we saw so much i one day. Definitely recommend.

I really enjoy this trip and recommend it to everyone going to Scotland! Our tour guide, John, was so funny and nice, he told us some of the of the best Scottish stories, and selected music to go with what he said!
Great time, absolutely loved it!
The tour was fantastic, the guide was very knowledgable and great fun. Would highly reccommend this if you only have a short stay in Scotland.
It was by far the best tour we did. George the tour guide is the best and funniest in the business and really made our day. Long tour but well worth it. Awesome A+++++++++++++
Amazing 1 day tour of the Highlands and Loch Ness! Very entertaining, energetic, bouncy (and safe) bus driver, who knows the best stories about etymology, fairies, 'wee disagreements' and picknicks of the old clans, geographic, historical and cultural backgrounds and cracks the funniest jokes. ever!
