Trip of a lifetime
Oct 2021 • Couples
One word to sum it all up - INCREDIBLE! Me and my boyfriend travelled with a group of 5 other people, and our tour guide, Gavin William Harrison. It’s a very well thought tour with really amazing destinations included, and Gavin made it all the more personalised for all of us. Would highly highly recommend this to anyone wanting to travel to the Highlands and the Isle of Skye!

Throughly enjoyed our first tour trip with Rabbies. Our tour guide, Paul Gibson made the experience exceptional with his vast knowledge and easy going manner. The accommodation they booked for us was fantastic. Paul arranged a visit to an oyster farm and we all had the opportunity to sample an oyster. Unforgettable trip, thank you Paul, thank you Rabbies!

A great way to see Scotland
Sep 2021 • Solo
I found Rabbies an outstanding company to deal with, from my first enquiry, their staff were really helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Our driver, guide Charlie was extremely knowledgeable, and our mini bus was clean and very comfortable. In a few days, we saw and did so much in the West Highlands, and on the Isle of Skye. We had plenty of stops and super photo opportunities, I travelled alone, but our small group were all friendly and we had a great time. I can highly recommend Rabbies and this holiday.

Great tour with the best guide I could imagine
Sep 2021
This 4-day tour is wonderful. The scenery and historic locations are amazing but Gav, our guide, was the one who really made the difference and changed a scenic bus trip into an adventure. He had the knowledge and passion for the landscape and history to fine-tune the tour according to weather, and the interests and abilities of the group. Every day was a joy and we will definitely be back for more.

The Most Magical Experience of Scotland
Aug 2021
The tour is only as good as the guide! I wanted to show my girlfriend the beautiful Scottish Highlands without the stress of driving myself. As a local tour operator myself, I am also very interested in history, culture and of course storytelling. I chose Rabbie's Tours because I'd heard that they were the greatest tour operator in Scotland so expectations were already pretty high for their 4 day Isle of Skye and West Highlands Tour. But I must admit Rabbie's Tours went far and beyond my expectations. Our driver Andy was friendly, adaptable and amazing at telling stories. It really made me appreciate the Highlands even more knowing all of the stories both historical and mythological. He completely adapted the tour to our group's need and also showcased his favourite aspects of the Isle of Skye. I want to thank Andy personally for providing my girlfriend and I with such a magical and memorable experience of Scotland. The fact that the weather was non-stop beautiful and full of sunshine really was the icing on the cake!

Cannot recommend enough
Aug 2021
This was an absolutely fantastic trip. The minibus was clean and very comfy, with USB ports for every seat so you could charge your devices easily (which is great as with the stunning scenery, I wanted to take thousands of photos so my phone drained quickly). Our guide, Andy, provided fascinating commentary in Jacobite history, folk takes and bits of information about the places we were seeing. He made everything so much more interesting! We got to see not only the main landmarks but lots of lovely places off the beaten path that we had entirely to ourselves. We saw gorgeous wildlife - seals, herons, even sea eagles! Skye was just phenomenal. Every time you thought it couldn't get more astoundingly beautiful, you turned a corner and it managed it! The B&Bs Rabbies booked for us were great - really lovely and welcoming. We want to do the outer Hebrides with Rabbies next year, but only if we can have Andy again!!

What an amazing trip! We were very lucky with the weather and saw so many stunning views! We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide in Andy, who was fabulous! Great stories and facts about each place we visited. I would highly recommend this trip.

Absolutely incredible
Aug 2021
This trip is one of the best things I've ever done. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking and the weather was incredible, which really helped. The bus was clean and comfortable and quite small, which meant that we could go off the beaten track, as we often did. The itinerary was great, we stopped a number of times to see things, and it was fluid which meant that we could do things that the group wanted to do. Our tour guide Andy was amazing. He was friendly and knowledgeable and I loved the stories and history that he told us about. I learned more about Scottish history in those 4 days than I'd ever known before! I'd highly recommend this trip.

Absolutely fantastic experience, Skye and the West Highlands are beautiful -we were incredibly lucky with the weather which was an added bonus! I would highly recommend both this tour and Rabbie’s in general - everything ran perfectly and wouldn’t have been the same without our amazing tour guide, Andy!
