      Great Highlands tour with John
      Great tour made better by a great guide (John from Rabbies tours). Had a wonderful time viewing the northern countryside of Scotland and the lochs in a comfortable 16 pax Mercedes van. Enjoyed the playlist of music and the guide’s humor along the way…a great guide makes the trip so much more enjoyable, and John delivered. Short visit at Loch Ness with a boat cruise that was informative and enjoyable. Overall, this trip is a must do, if visiting Glasgow. Thanks John!

      Don't miss the chance to take a Rabbie's tour.
      This was one of the best things we did on our trip to Scotland. I can't believe how much was saw and did on the tour of Loch Lomond, Glencoe, Loch Ness and more. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable making it a great day. Don't miss the chance to take a Rabbie's tour.

      Fantastic tour with a great guide
      The tour was really wonderful. Caitlin was our driver and guide, and she did a great job of showing us local highlights with insightful explanations about the rich history and culture of the locations. There's plenty to see on Skye and you can definitely spend more than three days here, but Caitlin did a great job of picking out the best bits that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. This is a fantastic tour for anyone who is looking for an introduction to Skye, or who is looking to get the most of out a quick trip there.

      Great tour!
      We had a great experience on our Rabbie's tour. The small passenger bus was very comfortable. Our driver, Dave, was knowledgeable and lots of fun. While in Falkland, he took us around and pointed out places where scenes from Outlander were filmed. The tour began with a visit at the Kelpies, which was very cool. The drive through the kingdom of Fyfe was beautiful, as was the town of Falkland. St Andrews was amazing. The cathedral and the ruins were really cool to explore. We really enjoyed this tour.

      Great Guide, Great scenery, Great Day!
      The tour guide Grame ( and his assistant Steven) were prompt, informative, helpful and good tour guides! Grame was a wealth of historical and local knowledge, and just a delight! The Castle visit and commentator was good ( just wish there was more time (an hour) to explore more! Lunch stop was a nice respite, and it was a nice town to stop at! Lake cruise was relaxing and informative, and a great view of the Hills (Highlands)! Enjoyed the day!

      Great day trip to Stirling Castle and the Highlands.
      If you’re looking for a day trip to get out of the city and see the Scotland countryside this is the trip for you. Vans are very comfortable. Tour is very chill and laid back. Graeham was an excellent guide and was very knowledgeable about the history of Scotland. You will not be disappointed with this tour.

      Highly recommend the Rabbie's tour
      I am so happy that we took this tour, it couldn't have been better. I'm amazed at how much we saw in one day. Our guide Grahem was so knowledgeable and terrific at giving us history and context all along the way. Seeing Glencoe was a high point. I'm so glad we also booked the boat tour on Loch Ness. We got to see a good bit of wildlife on the northern side where the captain kept close in for part of the trip. Enjoyed the stop at Pitlochry and the single malt ice cream. Looking forward to taking another tour with them!

      The Guide Makes the Ride!
      The entire trip was great! Our guide, James, provided facts, stories and even a few well-placed jokes. I’ve been on these types of excursions before, and the guide’s attitude and knowledge are the two defining factors. James’ attitude was confident, competent, and one of service to others! He made the experience great!

      Amazing Stress Free Way to See the Sites
      This tour was everything I hoped it would be and more. Nick was an exceptional tour guide. He was really lovely, friendly, and informative. The tour was so well executed from start to finish. The structured day was great. Nick had a wonderful playlist that accompanied the journey and it really added some Scottish atmosphere and fun to the day. My partner was hesitant to book this before we came to Europe because he said he disliked how in tours you’re tied up all day. But after the tour he emphatically expressed how glad he was we did it. He said we covered so much ground and it was all stress free. I agree. It was really convenient and stress free to see all these beautiful sites in Scotland. This tour is well worth it.

    This is one of the best tours I have done and is my third time going. Rabbies is always so relaxed and professional and the guides are hilarious and well informed and will ensure you don't miss a thing. This time we had Allister and I can't say enough, he was funny, well spoken and told so many interesting facts. He made every member of the tour feel included and we'll taken care of. So incredible 🤩

    An amazing full day trip with Rabbie's tours. Definitely recommend as you get to see a lot of Scotland's Lochs and castles.

    Weather was very good. Outer guide, Jeff, was very knowledgeable.

    Trip was value for money.

    Incredible tour! Our tour guide Grant was so friendly and knowledgeable, we couldn't have asked for a better day tour. We asked if we would see any highland cows and Grant not only stopped at a location so that we could see them, but also showed me where I could enter the field and get closer to take photos. From the interesting stories and historical facts to the traditional Scottish music, everything about this tour exceeded expectations and I cannot recommend it enough.

    Amazing tour through the Scottish Highlands. Our tour guide, Jeff C was humorous, knowledgeable and has a great taste of music with perfectly complemented the sites we visited. He knew everything and had fun facts about every aspect of the Highlands. This with his great capability of storytelling made it a wonderful trip through this beautiful part of the world.
    We were very lucky with the weather during our visit, therefore we made the most beautiful pictures. Talking about pictures Jeff C knew every good sport along the trip to make photographs. It was a long and extensive day but didn’t once have te feeling that we were on a long drive and at the end of the day I was not completely baked after the drive. Would definitely recommend doing this trip if you are in Glasgow.

    Darn - the sun is shining in Glasgow!! I am tempted to book the tour again!
    This tour ticks all the boxes in what you can do reasonably in a day trip from Glasgow. It was raining a lot of the day, so the views can’t be as good as a clear day, but the rolling mists make it magical - in a different way.
    Our guide John was a great source of information, banter and humour and kept us entertained through the day. The small group size is a BIG PLUS.
    I seriously would do the tour again today because of the sun; but with a limited time slot and never any guarantee of the weather, it is still a great day and amazing scenery. Just remember, as the the great Billy Connolly paraphrased, “There is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes”.

    This was a spectacular day trip, and some of the most gorgeous scenery I’ve ever experienced! Ian, our guide, was so friendly and full of great stories (and had an excellent playlist that provided a perfect soundtrack. I highly recommend booking a tour with Rabbie’s, especially if the thought of driving yourself around the Highlands (justifiably) freaks you out.

    The lochs and historic buildings and monuments are every bit as beautiful as you could imagine!
