Oct. 2021
Though I lived in Beautiful Scotland for years now, I decided to do this tour because I wanted to put some informational context to the places I see, and Fraser been our Tour guide , I wasn't disappointed in the least!
It was a wonderful journey, meticulously crafted with attention to details from start to end, full of historical information, facts, stories, music and humour.I was particularly impressed by Fraser's ability to present all the information in a very engaging manner, without loosing his attention on the road but above all he never missed a moment to appreciate the beauty of nature.
Plenty of photo stops with some wonderful views.
I would strongly recommend this day trip with Rabbies to anyone whether you are living here or visiting, it's a different feel when you don't have to drive or plan an itinerary but just sit back, listen and enjoy the views.

Unmissable
I was a solo traveller amongst a group of 10 others (5 x couples of various ages).

Alastair was the perfect guide, keeping us entertained from the moment we got on the bus, telling us of history, pop culture, anecdotes and things to look out for all the way. He tailored the day to weather/traffic.

We visited castles, brilliant countryside and places to eat and drink along the way.

I wanted an “introduction “ to the Highlands and that’s exactly what I got, with many ideas on what to revisit. Thank you!

It was a wonderful trip though the weather was not in favor of us. Our guide Bobby was exceptionally knowledgeable about the places, historical backgrounds. He tried stopping every place for photo opportunity. We are very pleased with it and we strongly recommend others as well.

Stewart was our driver and guide, he was excellent. He’s friendly, knowledgeable and has a wonderful presence and sense of humor. He added a lot of color and value to our experience. The bus is very comfortable and clean. Masks were worn throughout and people were very courteous. The stops were fantastic - scenery is gorgeous. There was ample time to explore. This tour is a great way to see more, enjoy the country, avoid the hassle of planning it all yourself, and meet interesting travelers.

Highly recommended tour of the Highlands for when you only have a limited time. Our guide Fraser, was knowledgeable, funny, informative and has good taste in music....essentially everything you would want in a tour guide. In my opinion, Glencoe, Loch Lomond and Oban were the highlights that are absolutely not to be missed.

This your was incredible! Aside from each stop being more beautiful than the other and being lucky enough that the weather was on our side, our guide, Fraser, was fantastic! He had a lot of information both on historic and film events, and mixed it all with fun humour. Plus, I'm very surprised he remembered all our names and details we told him about ourselves right from the get go haha

Definitely would recommend! This is a beautiful tour!!!!

Excellent trip
We had a great time on this trip and would thoroughly recommend it for anybody looking for a 1 day tour of the Highlands and Loch's. There were only 8 people on our trip and the mini bus was comfortable with large windows to take in the stunning scenery. We were fortunate in that the sun came out after a grey start which added to the views of Glencoe and the Moors in the afternoon. Despite being nearly 11 hours long the day wasn't tiring at all with always something to look at or visit.
We must given a special mention to our tour guide Ben who kept us informed and entertained throughout the day with his knowledge and humour.
