We just took the Bath, Cotswolds, Oxford 2 day tour with Dan and it was fantastic. Dan was both informative and entertaining and did an excellent job both driving and talking us through the journey. We learned a lot of history and fun facts along the way and the bnb we stayed in was excellent. Well worth it to see... More

Forget all you know about old style bus tours. This is aimed at younger people and those young at heart. The twelve hours just flew by in an atmosphere that was cheerful, friendly and very informative. As I have lived in Scotland for many years, I can vouch that tourists got solid information from the driver guide. My teenage German... More

We took the one day Whiskey tour. We were around 5 people in a very comfortable Mercedes Van. We started from the Rabbie's cafe, close to the Royal Mile. Our guide and driver was excellent. His knowledge of Scottish history was amazing and his sense of humor was to die for. He kept us entertained and laughing all the way.... More

Full day bus tour was worth the price. Great way to see the countryside - 5 different castles, lochs and cute towns. Nick (and Jim) were great historical storytellers. We never felt rushed and had many photo opportunities all day. If you only have one day to see the countryside this is a great way to do it.

We started our Isle of Skye 3 Day tour in Edinburgh, where we met our guide Arron. From the start, he would make every effort to ensure our trip was an enjoyable one. With humour and knowledge, he made everyone feel welcome. I would definitely recommend going on tour with Rabbie's, and would particularly like to thank Arron for making... More

Wow!!! Our guide Arron was AMAZING!!! The trip takes you through various stops around the highlands and off to see Nessie. Unexpected highlights included a sip or two of whiskey and a chance to meet a highland cow among other things. Arron's excellent commentary, story telling and personal approach (he knew all passengers names and interests relating to the tour... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
