This is a wonderful use of time when in Scotland, one I can't recommend high enough. You have to see this country anyway you can, and their vans are a very comfortable way. The itinerary was thorough and the guide's spiel is informative, to say the least. The only knock on the trip was the soundtrack of Scottish music played here and there. Quiet contemplation would have been as nice if not nicer.
Michael was our driver and guide on the Oban and Western Highlands day tour. He is engaging, eloquent, knowledgeable and entertaining. He is the best tour guide we have had to date. The coach was clean and comfortable and the tour was well organized. Great value for the price. A terrific way to see the beautiful countryside of the western highlands and learn the history.
This was a great tour led by Fergus. We got to see many places and were given just the right amount of time to spend in these places. Of course, now that I've seen them and heard some history about them, I will be returning some day in the future to visit again. Fergus was very knowledgable and friendly and a lot of fun.
Fantastic. The driver was very informative and fun. Beautiful scenery, good stops with plenty of time to see some highlights of that particular area. Definitely recommend. Only downfall would be the directions on the meeting point. The information from Viator says to meet at the Tourist information centre ... which I went to, but it wasn't the location, I then had to run about 2kms to the bus stop where they were waiting for me. Made it extremely stressful by giving the wrong directions on the meeting place.
This is a great tour! We loved our guide. He was interesting and informative. He told us stories and about the history of Scotland as we traveled between stops. We never felt rushed and always had plenty of time to explore and take photos. The bus was also comfortable and in great condition. We would definitely recommend this tour!
A power-packed day full of beautiful and diverse scenery with ample time to stop and enjoy every stop. Our guide was amazing! Not only did he prep us with information prior to each stop but he also gave us a complete and detailed history of the fight for Scottish independence while driving!
Comfortable pace, affable guide, lovely scenery…a pleasant and relaxing day.
Excellent trip, driver was very friendly, accommodating and very knowledgeable regarding local history and he even played some Scottish music to accompany the trip. would recommend to anyone.
A wonderful day trip that is perfectly paced with lots of nice stops. Definitely worth doing. Colin McNeil was a particularly good guide - great stories!
This is great tour.The guide was fantastic.I got to try some terrific Scottish seafood in Oban.I highly recommend this tour to anyone.
We had a wonderful trip to Oban. The sun shone for us too! Our guide Mark in his swinging kilt was a joy to listen to. Full of facts and great stories of the clans. His historical knowledge was really great, he told us just enough to give a flavour of each place we stopped at and made us want to cram in everything we could. All in all a fantastic day. Well done Mark!!! - MR AND MRS EKE, KENT.
I can't think of anything about this tour which wasn't of a high standard. From the tour guide Alexis to the fish and chips at Nories Fish Shop in Oban to the Highland scenery. Everything left a lasting impression and we were sorry that we didn't have more time to explore the West Highlands.
We love our tour guide she was very informative. Highly recomended.
My daughter and I can't say enough good things about our trip. The whole experience was enjoyable from beginning to end. Colin was a very knowledgeable guide, and kept everyone on schedule with his humour, and entertained with his amusing stories and anecdotes. His expert narrative brought Scottish history to life, making it ever interesting and engaging. Well done Colin! I recommend this trip whole-heartedly.
My favorite! Our stop at Luss on Lock Lomand brought back many fond memories. It would have been nice to have a bit more time in Oban, love that spot. John was very informative and took great care of us. I would highly recommend Rabbies Tours even in the rain

It was a great trip that covered a lot and that was well organized! Always again!
My husband and I very much enjoyed the Oban and the West Highlands Day Trip from Glasgow. We had a wonderful day with the host our driver "Steve" who provided us with excellent commentary throughout the trip. We were very impressed with his polite and friendly service to all on the bus. We shall definately book with you again. Thank you again.
Monday 23rd of July it was, surprise, raining cats and dogs. However, this gloomy atmosphere was quickly removed by meeting our driver/guide, Alistair (Ali). If you can talk about someone being well suited for his job, he is a perfect match. Super personality, pleasant, a splendid sense of humour, very well into every aspect of Scotish history and general information along the trip and with a natural talent for sharing this vast knowledge. Openminded and positive he made a blue Monday turn into a ray of sunshine. He even sang us a song to keep up the good spirit. No hesitation in going on a future trip with him. Please inform Ali, personally, about this review! Kind regards, Martin Loft
Our guide, Brian told very interesting stories and history of the Highlands. Our stop in Oban was very enjoyable next to the seaside and the shops were lovely to visit.
the best trip ever... recommends every one to experience oban and the highlands
Guide Michael of Rabbie's Tours was extremely good.Everything was wonderful, and believe me we are not that easily pleased.
Clean bus, considerate guide, well informed and entertaining in a positive way. .The rain only added to the ambience. So much beauty, such clean fresh air, friendly Scottish people.
One criticism. Oban trip took place on Thursday 11th August. When we confirmed our bookings a few days prior (from overseas) Rabbie's person on phone saw there are no Rabbie's Oban tours on Friday although they appear on Viator listings, and she switched 2 tours to correct days for us.
Great trip. Excellent guide. Only drawback was the bus originated in Edinborough and thus my wife and I were not able to sit together (we were the only ones getting on in Glasgow, taking the two remaining open seats).
