Did the overnight 2 day tour into the Highlands from Edinburgh with Rabbie and #39;s Tour Company. My trip to Scotland wouldn and #39;t have been complete without it. I and #39;m actually glad I did it in the winter as the snow on the mountains in the Highlands made it even more beautiful!

Very well rounded trip that included the Dalwhinnie whiskey distillery, stunning nature walk in the Hermitage forest, overnight stay in Inverness, time to do a cruise on Loch Ness and tour Urquart castle on the lake, and lots of photo ops in Glencoe and the Highlands. It was enough time to see all the highlights without feeling too rushed.

Our tour guide was Alan and he was phenomenal! Besides being an all around nice guy and knowledgeable tour guide, he has a gift of bringing his love of Scottish history to life via storytelling at its best. You not only feel like you just saw Scotland but that you traveled through Scottish history. Listening to Scottish history was like listening to a soap was that good.

This trip should not be missed!

Dave is an excellent guide. B and B Inverness was lovely. Arrived at 5pm and left the next morning at 8am. Dave went out of his way to accommodate what we wanted. Took us up to see snow, then a lovely sunset on a beach. The Loch Ness boat ride was sold out so face arranged a private boat. Amazing.

Fantastic tour that covers a lot of ground in two days. Our tour guide Stevie was great - very informative and witty. Flexible itinerary as we stopped at a few places along the way at the request of tour group. The guest house was very good - great breakfast and friendly hostess. If I could change one thing it would be the inclusion of admission to a few key attractions on the way, especially the Loch Ness cruise.

This was an excellent tour with a small group. Our tour guide/driver Chris was very helpful and made us all feel at him. HIs entertaining commentary, Scottish stores and music added to,the experience. THe tour took us to some well known places as well as those not so well known that are just as special. I would recommend this Rabbies tour to anyone

This is a very well organized trip.
We were given exact instructions about meeting place and time. Our driver cum guide was Paul. He was very knowledgeable and good company. This trip is highly recommended especially for first time visitors to Scotland and for those that are there for a short time.
