This was the best tour of our trip!! Bob our tour guide was the best. The bus only had 16 people and he took us on the most intimate view of the east coast of Scotland with the small villages and the most interesting town of St Andrews - not lonely golf but more history and antidotes of this area. He entered St Andrews drove us around to get the lay of the land so we could navigate and see everything. we even were able to get a picture on the Swilken Bridge at the course. A huge thank you to Bob and Rabbies tours for one of the best experiences.

This was our 2nd Rabbie's tour and it was as good as the first. Jan, our driver, was excellent. He had great stories and made an extra stop in a cute little town because he said it was his favorite. I really appreciate that Rabbie's gives the tour guides flexibility to customize the tour. After stopping at 2 cute villages in Fife, we had 3 hours in St. Andrews. It was a beautiful day and we had plenty of time for a nice relaxed lunch outside, a little shopping and sightseeing at the castle and cathedral. We are not golfers, but others in the tour had plenty of time to see the golf course, also. We stopped to see Falkland Palace and were back in Edinburgh by 6pm. In early July, that gave us still 3 hours of daylight to walk around Edinburgh before heading back to our hotel. A great tour!

My family and I just concluded an awesome tour of Fife, St. Andrews, and a few others areas. The tour guide/driver, Derrick, was amazing! He provided hilarious insight into each location while expertly establishing the historical and modern context of each place. I only wish I had more time to experience other tours by this well-organized company.

Our tour guide was Jan. He was informative and funny. I find that the Scots recount their history with a sense of humility-- very refreshing.
