This was a fantastic tour that I highly recommend.
This was a great choice. Our tour guide was Audrey and she was fabulous. She made the trip so enjoyable with her stories and her wonderful sense of humor. The scenery was breathtaking, We would highly recommend this tour. Doing it on your own does not give you all of the little secrets that Audrey pointed out...the fables and folklore.
Our tour guide was Ewen and he made our trip so memorable. He did such a great job and worked so hard putting together a tour within his van! We can say enough about this man who was so knowledgable and filled with history, economics, folklore and delivered so many great moments listening to him and his music while on the beautiful van with about 16 persons. Our trip was amazing and the places he scheduled were beyond some of the most fantastic scenery we have ever seen. Thanks Viator and Rabbi Tours for this great vacation.

If you are staying in Edinburgh for any length of time, you MUST consider taking this tour! Mack was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, kind and pleasant. As an historian, I tend to brace myself for bad or overly simplistic history, but I was so pleasantly surprised! Mack weaves together fact, myth and legend to create a truly exceptional experience that leaves tour-takers informed about Scottish history and able to discern fact from fiction, while appreciating the latter. We saw beautiful locations, trekked up massive hills and worked out our mountaineering skills under Mack's careful guidance in order to get see the most breathtaking views! The B and B organised by the tour company was clean, comfortable and the breakfast was delicious! Mack's music playlist was spot on and he is a master of timing - all stories and musical interludes synced up perfectly with what we were seeing from the comfort of the mini coach. One second you're listening to excellent Scottish folk music, the next Mack starts a story out of nowhere - just when you begin to wonder why that tale at this time the coach turns a corner and the castle/topographical feature/monument at the heart of the story appears before your eyes.
The tour is fast-paced and can be a tiny bit physically demanding. Wear sturdy shoes with good grips, wear layers and prepare for the elements - it is absolutely worth it! If you are not one to be confined to the vehicle for long periods, no worries - Mack had us off the bus at comfort stops or great photo opportunities at least every 90 minutes.
The trip was conducted by Rabies Tour. It was the best group tour i had in my time in Scotland. Our driver guide, Nick was simply amazing! This young chap knows his stories, his landmarks and was very engaging throughout the trip. He was a very safe driver too.
We visited many places at Skye, namely Niest point, Glenn Fairy, The Quiraing mountains and many more sights. It was simply beautiful beyond words. Just dress right for the weather. Umbrellas are not that useful at skye. A windbreaker with your snow caps and waterproof clothing are definitely more useful. It will keep u dry and warm.
I stayed 2 nights at the Feochan B and B at Portree which was arranged by the tour. The hosts were very accomodating. The house was very modern and seemed newly renovated, with fresh and clean linen to sleep on.
I enjoyed the tour very much. 3 days was just too short on Skye.
OMG I got to see the sites of Outlander. Castles, stones, and Falkland where the story started besides other sites in Scotland. Would absolutely recommend and would do again. Our driver Andrew was excellent telling us stories, playing Scottish music, telling jokes and giving us great historical information. Andrew your a doll!!!! And Skye is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Nothing beats the Highlands---so clean, fresh, and wonderful people. Stayed at a wonderful B and B---owners were accommodating, room was clean and comfortable and breakfast was fantastic.
we had an amazing time on this tour, my fiance just can't stop talking about it, our tour guide alone made the trip magnificent, we would do this again in a heart beat! i would rank this as one of my best trips and believe me i have been on a few.
Great tour with Jude - just sorry we did get lots of rain on day we visited Neist Point!! Definately bring rain SUIT for those days but getting it on and off with small comfy bus could be tricky. Wonderful tales and photo stops.
This trip was the highlight of our 3 weeks in the UK. Our tour guide, Nick was amazing and made our trip so interesting and fun. He started by asking what each of us hoped to see and then customized the trip to make sure our wishes were met. The bed and breakfast we stayed in was amazing -so welcoming and comfortable. Do not miss this opportunity to see the most beautiful area of Scotland! Our day at the Fairy Pools, the picnic on the shore and the Fairy Glen visit were highlights. We would go again if we ever return.
There aren't enough stars for this tour! James, our tour guide was informed, helpful, and a delight to tour with. A million stars just for James!! He kept the tour interesting with fun stories, anecdotes and a great playlist. I enjoyed the loose, easygoing nature of the trip - decisions for stops were often made just in time to turn off the road! For those who've been on big tours with strict, nearly impossible time-tables understand the frustration of feeling pressed for time and often a bit restricted in movement. This tour was totally different. James would often make a stop just because he knew how much we liked cows, or waterfalls, or whisky! The tour was a wonder at every turn with not a moment of boredom. We had tons of photo stops, plenty of bathroom breaks and good food everywhere we went. Viator booked us into a very sweet B and B, where we were well looked after. Very Highly recommended indeed!
