Our tour was led by Ian who provided insightful commentary about the history, landscape, culture and humor of Scotland. Ian strove to meet the requests of all participants and demonstrated great flexibility when weather prevented some planned visits. In one instance, due to inclement weather, he was able to secure a whisky tasting to replace a visit to an outdoor area we were all impressed and satisfied. All three members of our family were thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the tour and the clear effort to make this a memorable part of our visit to Scotland.
If you travel to Scotland, you MUST visit the Isle of Skye...and what better way to do this than with a private tour guide who takes care of all the details!!! We booked through Viator, which booked us with Rabbis. Our guide was John....very knowledgeable, professional, music connoisseur, and all around witty! My husband and I are already planning to tour Ireland next year and we will definitely be booking this through Viator and Rabbis. We literally showed up at the bus on day 1 and did not have to worry about ANYTHING...John took care of all the details. The money paid is very very very much worth the it!!! I am a very experienced global traveler and have high expectations....my expectations were definitely met. My husband and I will be going back to Scotland as well...please go to the Isle of Skye...you will remember the landscape views for the rest of your life.
One of the best tours! Will definitely come back to Scotland because of the people, the culture, the scenery and the shopping!
One of the best tours that I have ever experienced! Definitely will come back to Scotland! love the scenery, love the people, love the food and love the shopping!
We had the best time with Fraser! He was a wonderful storyteller! He found unique activities for us - the walk to Coral Beach and the Ferry crossing, the Isle of Skye Brewery. His playlist and history lessons helped Scotland come alive for us!
This tour was awesome! There is so much packed into 3 days, it's hard to even pick a favorite: castles, sea cliffs, whisky tasting, more! Even with wind and rain for two of the days, we still had a great time. The tour guide/driver, Grant, was fantastic and was very engaging with us in pointing out various things we passed, and providing us with history of the area. He also threw in a few jokes. Overall, the entire tour was amazing and I would do it again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to anyone looking to explore Scotland.
We really enjoyed this tour to the Isle of Skye. Ian our driver/guide was very, very knowledgeable of scotland history and of the sites we stopped to visit as well as of those we went through. Ian had interesting information about our surroundings as well such as the evolution of the vegetation and the forest and the geology of Scotland. He also shared with us Scottish music and poems. The topics he discussed were so varied that everyone could find something of interest for them personally. We had a good group of 12 adults and everyone was very respectful of others and of the schedule. Ian made many stops for pictures, food or toilet breaks. On a day when the weather was less cooperative, he had a plan to keep us busy and entertained. During the return trip, an accident on the motorway required Ian to find an alternate way back to Glasgow. Despite this inconvenience, he remained calm and took us through different towns than those initially planned. All in all it was a great tour which I strongly recommend.
The trip was one of a unique kind. The bus was comfortable. Window Glass is washed properly so you take photos while on the move. Should it get dirty with rain drops, the driver will willingly clean it for you. The Driver was amazing, very informative and helpful.
I never though of going on trip so far north in November 2016 but it was one of my best tours ever. Cold but the views just makes you forget. I highly recommend.
Absolutely loved it! Was very lucky with the weather too. Neil was a great guide very knowledgable and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this tour. I think the Isle of Skye is my favourite place that I have visited now so picturesque!
We had a great time, the weather didn't cooperate so some things we couldn't see. I'm still glad we went, the Highlands are gorgeous. Our tour guide Alex was amazing and made the trip!
It was all about Iain, our tour guide. He was awesome. The coach was comfortable. The stops were frequent. The scenery was fantastic and the stories and music just made it interesting. My only wish would be for wifi on the coaches so to be able to look up things for more information. Lunch breaks were sometimes a bit short when the villages were crowded. Our bed and breakfast was superb as well. Comfortable rooms, private entrance, delicious breakfasts at convenient times. This was Balloch in Portree. the whole process from booking the tour to return to our hotel was seamless and professional.
Our tour guide Alex, was very informative and helpful. He shared history, legends, and wonderful Scottish music. Judy and John Daugherty
Tour was fantastic. Our host John took was great as well. Everyone must get to the Isle of Skye!
This tour was fabulous! I was travelling with my son who is studying at the University of Glasgow. We each had a wonderful time. Our tour guide and driver was John. He was superb. We saw much more and learned much more about Scotland than I dreamed we would on a small bus this trip to Isle of Skye. The seats were comfortable and each seat offered an excellent view. The many stops provided us with opportunities to explore the area. Our favorite part was Skye itself and the lodging at the guest house. I would definitely do this trip again. I would recommend it to anyone.
It was a wonderful tour. The scenery was breathtaking, even in the rain! Our tour guide John was knowledgeable and fun!
My trip was amazing and our tour guide Ian was terrific I would recommend this trip to everyone I know Thank you Ian and the tour company
Great trip! Tour guide John was funny, knowledgeable, and engaging. Rode a great local ferry. Weather during our day on Skye was pretty gray, but we still had a great time. We saw a lot more of the Highlands on this trip than I expected, which was terrific. If you've never been, go with the local tour operator!
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Everything was great from start to finish. Our tour guide James was excellent. A highlight for me was feeding a carrot to a highland cow!
This was an amazing tour, only regret is that I wasn't on a 5 day tour. 3 days is not enough in the Scottish Highlands it is a beautiful and magical place. I highly recommend this tour with Rabbie's and our awesome guide Murray!
The landscape and town visits on this trip are outstanding. If you're visiting Scotland, don't miss this tour. The landscape and areas we visited are the most beautiful I have ever seen.
Our tour guide, James, was fantastic.
My daughter and I chose this tour following a 12 day tour. We really wanted to go to Skye and Eilean Donan Castle. We loved getting an opportunity to see more of the Highlands so beautiful. This was truly a highlight of our 18 days in the UK! Ian - our tour guide and bus driver was very good. He had many stories and lots of information to share about the areas we drove through and to. Skye was absolutely beautiful!!! The weather was perfect on our full day on the island. I took so many pictures! Old Man Storr, the beautiful Coast, The Quaraing, Neist Point, Kilt Rock and the Fairy Glenn! OH MY....it was all soooo beautiful. Portree was a friendly and quaint town and our Bed and Breakfast was very nice. I highly recommend this tour!
A wonderful three day trip not to be missed! Our tour guide was delightful and extremely knowledgeable. The accommodations were more than what we were expecting as our hotel was right on the harbor. The trip was well balanced and the scenery was spectacular. It was the perfect introduction to Scotland.
Ian was a fantastic guide with lots of historical knowledge and stories. He was a great story teller who knew when to start the story so that he finished it just as he pulled into the parking spot. Skye is beautiful!! Due to rain and winds we didn't get to hike as much as we would have liked, but that is no fault of the Rabbies tour company, If you go, I do hope that you are fortunate to have Ian as a guide!
This tour, locally run, was outstanding. OUr guide, John Wales, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area and really brought it alive to us, interspersing his narrative with very relevant music. The small group tour was an excellent way to go and I would do it again in a minute. The only issue I had was that it would have been nice to have just a little more time on the lunch stops in case you actually wanted to buy something other than lunch, but this was minor compared to the overall wonderful tour with a stellar guide!
