Traveler Tips

Even if someone is not familiar with Outlander, the TV series, this tour is worth experiencing.
Although it was an Outlander tour, even those who aren't familiar with the series can enjoy the interesting drive and stops.
Some seating had more leg room than others in the bus, but the ride was comfortable overall.

Great Outlander experience

My wife and I are “Outlander” fans and our guide Desmond did a brilliant job of explaining all our sites from the movie perspective. He was extremely knowledgeable about the series and overall history of Scotland- Highly recommend Rabbies and Desmond - vey enjoyable overall
Don't take the jump seat!
David_W, Jul 2022
Our driver and guide Willizm was great. My only complaint was that at 71 and handicapped I was the only passenger that was willing to sit in the jump seat. Quite uncomfortable for an entire day. No one should have to endure that for as long as I had to. Can't believe that you must have that one extra seat and force someone to sit there and pay full price.
Delivers all the feels.
Karen_S, Jul 2022
Where history, fiction and film collide to provide an awesome immersive experience of so many key places. Enjoyed every second… and Kevin was an exceptional guide and skillful driver.

A Wonderful Day. Tour Guide Ross was full of knowledge. Too bad a few places were closed due to construction, but worth the day!
A day in the life!
Josee_H, Jul 2022
Ray our driver kept us entertained with historical facts, great music and stories. The timing of each destination was perfect! Great day.
Very worth it
Angela_C, Jul 2022
This tour was more than worth the money. We went to 5 separate filming locations and had a knowledgeable and funny tour guide that pointed sights out to us along the way. So much fun packed into one day
Lots to see and learn!
Karen_M, Jun 2022
We enjoyed listening to the tales and history of our guide Jim Divine. The narration at the Blackness Castle from their guide was a hoot. The weather cleared for our remaining stops. Be had enough time to visit the other sites. Needed a little more time for Crainsmuir visit to see it all but all in all it was a great day and way to see outside of Edinburgh and those much loved Scotland sites in Outlander in the first seasons.
Outlander day tour !
Julie_L, Jun 2022
