To start and most importantly, the guide Franziska was superb and made it that more interesting. Her intellectual explanations and stories did not become boring at any time, on the contrary we looked forward to her explanations.
The sites were all to our liking and very interesting. Maybe the walk to Kilchurn Castle was a bit too far especially since it started to rain heavily and we all ended soaking wet. It was a fantastic tour and would recommend it to young and old alike.
I absolutely loved this tour. My driver, Eric, was a huge delight and very knowledgeable.
Our tour guide was absolutely hilarious. He performed excerpts of Monty Python's movie at the castle that was used in that film. He also did Sean Connery imitations. Very quick witted and unrehearsed funny quips along the way. The lochs and scenery were outstanding and of course the castles were too. I would take this trip again in a heart beat!!!
Our tour guide Paul was fantastic and very informative. We kept to time tables and saw everything we were scheduled to see. And somehow, it managed to rain while we were on the bus, but not when we were touring. Unlike other tours, this didn't feel as rushed - almost enough time at each stop to actually enjoy what we were seeing, although we could have used more time in Inverary.
We really enjoyed our day trip to the West Highland Lochs and Castles. The trip was very comfortable in the van and our guide Nicky was very personable, knowledgeable and provided a wonderful day trip for our family. We will definitely book another trip with you when we come back to Edinburgh.
This trip was the highlight of my whole vacation! We learned SO MUCH from our awesome guide Craig. He was so much fun and truly enjoyed his job. He offered to take photos of us so we'd both be in the shot and took the extra time to make sure we got the most out of each site we visited. I can't recommend this trip enough. Great variety of sites, gorgeous scenery and a true Scottish experience. Thanks Craig for a great day!

Our tour guide Jody was unbelievable! She really knew her history and had great stories and was super accommodating! This tour was one of the best, even though it rained we still got amazing castle and scenery pics! Jody is the best!
The guide with only about 3 month's experience was excellent. She was able to maneuver the vehicle and talk about the tour at the same time very well.
Our local contact was Rabbies Trail Burners out of Edinburgh. We toured on a comfortable mini bus with Gillian guide and Craig driver learning the route. It was a super awesome day! We learned so much, saw so much, and felt complete reassurance in our decision to visit Scotland for our honeymoon.
Gillian played Scottish music from time to time on the bus to help set the tone before arriving at locations and to help us understand Scotland's history, culture, and context. Craig gave us additional insight at the tour locations. Both were super friendly and enthusiast to introduce us to this region of Scotland. For instance, Craig told us to make sure we tried an Irn Bru before we left Scotland, and we did. : It tasted like pink bubble gum to our American tongues, but we noticed it everywhere and felt like insiders rather than tourists having tried it.
We visited Doune Castle, St. Conan's Kirk to wait out some rain, Kilkurn ruins, Inverary Castle had lunch there too, so cool!, Loch Lommand, and viewed Stirling Castle on our way back to Edinburgh.
We are Outlander fans so visiting Doune castle Leoch was very cool! And having lunch at Inverary was a special trip. Even our small stop to view the old military road at Rest and Be Thankful was beautiful. The whole feel of the trip made me feel like I was driving along just like Clarie and Frank, and Clair and Jamie while we walked along lochs and through old churches.
This was our favorite tour, mostly because our guide Greame was funny, personable, and full of information about all the places we went. This is a Rabbie's tour, we took three of them, and all were great fun. The scenery was beautiful and the castles very charming. So, sign up and do it.m
I loved the small group aspect of this tour. Our guide Craig was fantastic! It felt like going on a road trip with an old friend. He was full of information and seemed to have a personal connection with everything we saw. I went on this tour to see the castles- and they were great, but I was really in awe of the West Highland Lochs. Everything I saw on this tour was beautiful. I went on the Loch Ness tour, as well, and in case you are wondering if the two tours would be redundant, they are not. We saw completely different things on both tours.
We had a great day on this tour. John, our tour guide, was excellent! This was a great way to get out of Edinburgh and see some of the countryside.
Great tour and the guide was extremely knowledgeable.
Lots of things to see--although I would have liked more time to see Invaray castle. Maybe the tour could be extended slightly so people would have more time to eat and go to the castle. As it was, you had to choose one thing or the other.
Our driver/guide Jude was amazing. Multiple extra stops for photos etc and lots of breathtaking views during the tour.
Ewan B. was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. We enjoyed our day with him seeing the lochs and castles in the West Highlands.
Bruce was an amazing tour guide who knew everything about the area and castles. Would definitely recommend
We loved this tour! Roger, our driver , was fantastic---funny, VERY knowledgeable of Scottish history and all of the destinations we went to, and very personable, as well as a great driver on these narrow UK roads. 100% great day!
I took my daughter on this trip. It was her first time in Scotland. Our guide Paul was amazing and the trip exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to get an overview of the Highlands without the hassle of driving.
I had a great time, Im glad i chose this tour, the guide Jude is very nice and funny, she made us laugh the entire trip, I highly recommend this tour.
