    I loved the flexibility of this tour. We added another stop which wasn't on our itinerary and it was great. I'm glad I chose this tour. Gill B was a fantastic guide.

    Exceptional tour! Jodie gave us an in-depth review if history spun with stories of Scotland. She is just a delight as the tour director.

    I had a wonderful time on the four day Isle of Skye and West Highlands tour. We had Mahri as our guide and she was the best, I’m glad we had her. Not only was she always cheerful and kind, she had amazing stories to tell throughout the trip which made it that much more magical. It was great to have an itinerary planned out for me and to jump on a bus everyday and have someone take me around and show me the sights. It was a lot easier than trying to plan a trip on my own. I also loved the small bus and having a smaller group. The accommodations were fantastic. I opted for the B&B choice and was not disappointed. I had a very positive and loved Scotland. I wouldn’t hesitate to do it all again.

    Hi Rebecca, Sometimes it's lovely to have everything planned for you and to not have to worry about driving or getting from place to place. Just sit back, relax and off you go! We're so pleased that you enjoyed the tour - and Scotland! All the best, Aimee

    Jodi was excellent. She had a good historical perspective and provided great stories about Scottish fairies, giants, etc. She ensured we saw everything we wanted to see. She was extra special. Best tour I have ever been on and I am a tour manager. Will highly recommend Robbies to everyone.

    It was our first experience with a guided tour. We didn't knew what we could expect. Just back home from this trip, we came back with wonderful memories. Matt, our guide was marvelous! He always took the time to explain the details of the day, see if it suited everybody. For some attractions he gave an alternative for people who didn't wanted to join. At check-in in the B&B's he always came in with everybody to be sure that everything was ok with the reservation. He had a great humor, put on some Scottish music along the journey to really put us in the mood and culture. He has a really good knowledge of his country, its myths and stories, it was a pleasure to listen to him. The advantage of those small (16) groups is that you really have a contact with each other and you don't have the feeling to blindly follow your guide like small kids. And of course the views were breath taking, we couldn't have see all of this on our own. We would definitely recommend Rabbie's tour to anyone.

    Everything was beyond expectation, and Iain was so full of interesting stories, history, and enthusiasm for his homeland. Every departure left on time and every minute of the time in and out of the coach was thrilling. Well done Rabbies tours, and a huge thank you to the most interesting driver/tour guide ever. We can’t wait for the next trip with you.

    We had a fantastic time on our 4 day Isle of Skye with our guide Nick. He was a world of knowledge. Funny and accommodating.Nick went out of his way to insure our mixed group of couples, families and a few with limited mobility were having a good time. Buses are comfortable if you're one of the early boarders and had a front seat. Probably not so for folks in the back. Overhead racks for small back packs. Nick had pre-set music that went well with our journey. Days were not overly long and the two B&Bs were very nice especially Fasgraths. Sheila our in owner was a true delight. Nick made lunch and supper recommendations that were spot on. Weather was as they say in Scotland, changeable, to say the least but our group were real troopers and forged ahead. Only regret was it was over too soon.

    Spent an excellent four days with Peter out tour guide. He was knowledgeable, personable and experienced. He went out of his way to provide photo stops and information about what the group wanted to see and do. His knowledge of history was brilliant. He wove our tour together with appropriate historical stories, myths and legends. As an older, less agile member of the group, he provided practical assistance whenever necessary. An excellent tour guide!
