I know everyone thinks their tour guide is the best but ours truly was!!! Roland made the trip absolutely magical. He is incredibly well-read, articulate, funny and engaging. His commentary was interspersed with lively Scottish music, ballads reflecting the stories he was telling or, at one point, his own rendition of You take the high road- he can even sing beautifully. I was traveling with my 20-something year old daughters and he made everyone on the tour feel welcome and comfortable. He truly has a gift for bringing Scotland to life. And we were impressed with the tour company, Rabbie's, overall. The accommodations were exactly as advertised and the company seems very well run. We met different guides on other tours during the 3 days and they all seemed to have great personalities! Having been on a tour where the guide turned out to be nothing more than a glorified bus driver, I can appreciate a company that seems to value quality tour guides.

I will definitely be back for another tour!

If you're not driving yourself around Scotland this is a great tour to see the Scottish Highland and the Isle of Skye. My sister and I visited in the middle of Feb right in the smack of winter and many of the tours weren't running. This tour to the Isle of Skye run by Rabbie's was just what we needed. It gave us the opportunity to see so much more of the Highlands and visit areas like Glencoe and Fort William that we may not have seen otherwise. The Mercedes van was very comfy and I enjoyed having a smaller tour group. Bruce our driver was information and a great driver. He was pretty chill about each of our stops and giving people time to explore on the Isle of Skye. It's a beautiful island even in winter. We had people of all ages on our tour and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Rabbie's was great to tour with and I would definitely book with them again in the future.

I am now completely in love with Scotland. I cannot wait to come back. We were fortunate enough to have Pete as our guide. I don’t even have words to tell you how spectacular of a guide he is. He is a gifted story teller and his knowledge of the areas and histories seemed limitless. Thank you Pete!!

It was a wonderful trip indeed. The scene is totally breathtaking, and we are lucky not to have too much rain, thus I was able to take hundreds gorgeous photos. Michael, our driver and tour guide is the best ! He has been a safe driver, and showed his care every step away. In lots of occasions, he will get down the coach first to try the road, just in case its Not too slippery or too muddy. He is a good story teller as well. I start to like his strong Scottish accent after three days trips. Thank you Michael for a good job ! I will definitely recommend this trip to my friends whoever want to visit UK.

This was an awesome tour, the tour guide/driver was the best he talked a lot about the history and saw many sites, had plenty of time at each location, saw several castles and had plenty of time to take a boat ride on the Loch Ness and have lunch on the last day

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The weather was less than perfect but our guide David was so knowledgeable about the history that we did not mind. The B and B we stayed at was incredible. We had a gorgeous view out our bedroom window. And the owners were welcoming and more than gracious. We had a problem with our train tickets and they went out of their way to help us solve it. Would definitely recommend this trip.

This tour was amazing, the guide and driver was awesome and attentive. Truly informative and clearly loved his country and showing it to people. This tour was worth every penny and truly lived up to its billing. I'd happily do it all over again. Outstanding start to finish!

This tour was AMAZING! Bobby is such a great tour guide - he was so genuine and you could tell he loves what he does. The Fairy Pools were a highlight and our B and B in the middle of Portree was great! Portree itself was nice -- the only disappointing part was that there was ZERO live music but we were able to find some cool bars our favorite was Isle to get some sort of nightlife. This is a great tour to get out of hustle of Edinburgh and spend a lot of time outdoors. Bobby catered to everybody's needs, but you will get a lot more out of this tour if you are healthy enough to walk/hike a bit through the beautiful scenery. Enjoy!

This tour was very comprehensive. The driver/tour guide was a local Scotsman and was informative on many topics and history of the region. The sight seeing was well organised by the driver around the some times inclement weather of Scotland. Over all this tour was well run.

Magnificent magical Skye and the Scottish Highlands! The scenery and history on the whole trip is outstanding. Our guide was Doug and for 3 days he entertained and educated us. We loved the music and the stories! We laughed and we marvelled. Doug is a resourceful guy, we got stuck behind a wide load travelling 30m/hr so he whipped around and took us over on the ferry from Skye to the mainland to get round it. Loved it, one of the highlights for everyone. Our accommodation was plain but comfortable and there's plenty of places to eat. On our last night in Portree, the Skye Pipe band turned it on for the crowds. Easily the best tour we have ever done.

This was an excellent tour, largely in part to our driver/tour guide Eric Murdoch. He not only pointed out the sights with relevant information, but gave us an excellent background of Scottish history - and had many amusing stories of his own. An excellent driver, and very thoughtful of his group in the way of photo ops./loos/shopping.

The van was very comfortable, and we were lucky enough to stay at the BnB Kiltaraglen, where the owner was always available with help and we had the best breakfasts of our four-week trip.

One of the best tours we've ever taken. It is probably all due to the fact that we had a magnificent guide in David. We loved his enthusiam and love for Scotland, it was contagious. We never tired of hearing all the history and stories along the way. We also appreciated his recommendations on restaurants, it was a perfect tour.

We had a great tour offered with Rabbies Tour. Our driver/guide- Eric M was great. He was very knowledgeable and had a great entertaining way of recounting the history of the area. Lots of Scottish music during the trip with some good lead ins to some of the historic stops. Eric was very helpful in also meeting any special requests of passengers, as needed. The buses hold 16 people and are reasonably comfortable. Stops/siteseeing were well timed with adequate time to explore. Lots of bathroom breaks with very clean facilities. We had Rabbies choose our BnB accommodation and the bus passengers were spread around 3 or 4 BnBs. All were about 15 minute walk to downtown. The overnight was in Portree and the town is very busy- dinner reservations are advised or expect to eat after 7:30/8:00. Rabbies is obviously very client oriented since every need was anticipated and met so professionally and pleasantly.

We had a great trip with Arran, a Rabbies guide-driver who was friendly and knowledgeable about all sites and kept the comments flowing at a great pace. He included recommendations for restaurants so that we could get supper. We stopped often enough and he would make stops when asked such as to be sure we got sheep crossing our road! He had a great sense of humor. Skye is very scenic, but you need to know the back roads to find the best views. He was careful on the narrow, curvy 'paths' and the busy roads. .

Our tour guide was Al through Rabbies and he was amazing! Super knowledgeable about Scottish history and told us all about the landmarks we passed by. Very nice guy, very funny! The tour bus was comfortable, they make the right amount of stops for breaks to stretch your legs and snap pics.

This was a FABULOUS experience. We highly recommend this tour. Our guide Nick A. who also was our driver, was superb. His knowledge of the history of Scotland and of the area to which we were traveling, coupled with a gift for recounting stories, made this a 3-day trip we will never forget. His selection of music was remarkable--we thoroughly enjoyed every song he played! The frequent stops and photo opportunities including one for Highland cattle! were greatly appreciated but the longer stops that allowed us to explore areas we visited, even more so. At Point Neist, we had time to hike down to the lighthouse, and to hike up to view the lighthouse from above. We stopped at Dunvegan Castle with time to actually tour through the castle there also was another stop that allowed time to explore a second castle. Our visit and hike around Fairy Glen was magical. We stopped at so many places and saw so many remarkable vistas it is impossible to describe all in a short review. In one town where we stopped for lunch, there was time to have lunch and walk around the town, visit the town church and see the local museum. Quick walks to waterfalls or up paths only brought more smiles. We spent two nights in Portree at a charming B and B and had dinner in town at a pizza restaurant the name escapes me--it was EXCELLENT. We enjoyed our visit to Loch Ness--and even the boat ride which is a bit touristy, but then, we were tourists: Time passed all too quickly. IF you have the opportunity to take this tour, DO. And if Nick A can be your tour guide, you will be guaranteed an amazing 3 days.
