I love this trip to Loch Ness. The guide and driver is very very experienced and humorous.
We had a full day of fun. The companys name was Rabbies and our guide Jim? was a absolutely wonderful scottish man that had big knowledge about Scotland and entertained us with his stories during the day. He told us about Scotlands history freedom battles and screamed freedom! after every story. Its a full day of seeing beautiful highland landscapes, meet the Loch Ness beast, eat whiskey ice cream. Enough time was given on each stop to take pictures and enjoy the scenery. The small group were perfect, max 16 people. We can really recommend this trip, it was the highlight of our trip to beautiful Scotland.
The tour was a really enjoyable way to spend the day. The bus was easy to find in Glasgow, the pick up and departure process was very efficient. Graham, our guide, was phenomenal -- he shared all kinds of information about Scotland and mixed in humor too. I particularly enjoyed that he played music throughout that tour that specifically supplement the Scottish history and stories he told and I especially loved that he played Skyfall as he told us about and drove us on the road used in the Skyfall movie I'm not a big 007 fan, but I had seen Skyfall. That was one of the cool an unexpected things about the tour, it covered both historical Scotland and locations that have been used in movies. Personally, I got a little bored with all the stops along the way I got to a point where I was like 'more mountains, lakes...got it but I will admit it was pretty. Our tour was also in December so we working with limited daylight and Graham adjusted to that, particularly on the way home suggesting that we stop at a closer town on the way home while there was still daylight rather than spending a lot of time at a town farther along since it would be completely dark when we got there and everything would be closed our tour was on a Sunday so many shops and eateries in the small towns we stopped in throughout the day were closed. At Loch Ness, my friend and I decided not to take part in the add on castle or boat tours they weren't really ideal options in December due to the weather, instead we had lunch at the café in Loch Ness which overlooked the Loch. There weren't a lot of food options but so it's not good if you're on special diets, etc. which I'm not, but it was relaxing. The gift shop there is huge --we spent a good amount of time shopping and then walked down to the Loch. By the time we did that, it was time to get back on the bus and head back. I have taken several Viator tours in different countries and they never disappoint, this one was no exception. The tours are small, personal, and fluid meaning they fit the crowd --for instance, during the drive I asked Graham if we'd see hairy cows --we'd seen a lot sheep, horses and normal cows but not Scottish hairy cows. Graham said there were sometimes cows out near the road and if that happened and there was a place to stop, he'd pull over so we could get out and see them. He would also call out if he saw them as would other passengers on the bus. Unfortunately, all of the ones we saw were not close to the road and there was nowhere to pull over so we didn't get to stop but I appreciated that that was an option.
I went on a 30 day holiday across 7 countries and this tour was hands down the best guided tour we had. Not only that, it was also the cheapest. Frasier was beyond informative, able to give an entire wealth of information on a moments notice, fantastic guide (deserves a bonus ;) ). More than 5 stars
Amazing experience professional driver/guide, also very friendly, comfortable vehicles and good value for money. Surely will use same company next time highly recommended
This tour was great! John (our driver and guide) was both hilarious and interesting. The tour was well executed and planned. There are USB plugs for charging which is great. The one downside is no WiFi on the bus when it’s dark out and you can’t see anything. The views were amazing and such a fun trip
John my driver cum guide was amazing, though quiet senior he is very friendly. He made sure we all had a good time by cracking jokes, games etc. Also the Views were amazing, Scotland is Awesome
The tour covers quite a few miles and is a long day, but a great way to get a view of the Highlands in a day. Our guide, Alex was knowledgeable and kept the trip interesting throughout--despite a cold and rainy November day.
It was a nice trip with Rabbey's travel team.
Our guide, Graham was just amazing and so knowledgeable, he explained the history so well and it was really interesting, I enjoyed every moment of this tour. It was raining a bit the young undistilled wisky :D but, still the place was incredible and the stunning views along the drive route was just perfect. The songs and Scottish music in between the history details by Graham made the trip more fun and interesting. The highlands was the highlight of our trip to Scotland! I would recommend this tour for all who visit Scotland and Thanks a lot Graham for showing the amazing places. I loved it :
