Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our touring party is two American couples on a 10-day visit thru Scotland. We had 1 full day in Aberdeen and needed to find the best tour possible for our limited time. We hit the jackpot with Grampian Escapes and Tours!
    We were astounded by the depth of the tour (visited so many spots on the way to and from the castle) and by our tour guide’s knowledge. Jacqueline was thoroughly engaging, very knowledgeable, and so much fun with which to travel. Even after doing this for 7 years, she is still enthusiastic about sharing her love of all things Aberdeen. We learned about local history, plants, flowers, and the best places for shopping and dining.
    The self-guided tour of Balmoral Castle was very enjoyable and worth the tour as a single event. When you factor in everything Jacqueline brought to the tour, this trip was worth every penny. Highly recommend!!!

    This was a great trip, and our guide, Jim, was outstanding. Dunnottar Castle is a must see. We also truly enjoyed our visit to the Highlands and the beautiful nature walks we were able to share.

    Many thanks to Jamie for a fantastic time in what would have otherwise been just another wet and wild day. We would never have seen as much as we did without his knowledge of the area and the roads - he packed in so many diverse places and some interesting anecdotes. Picturesque villages, views, wild life, folklore, history & award winning food (fish and chips!). A day well spent despite the awful weather conditions. Great value!

    The trip was amazing to say the least- very comfortable travel and a great driver who was the guide as well. The places were all gorgeous- the weather plays a huge role- bright, clear weather makes the trip all the more worthy!

    Our experience with Malcom was incredible. He picked us up from our hotel and took us to 3 castles that we got to choose in advance. He even showed us around Old Aberdeen and dropped us off in the city center an hour after our tour was supposed to have ended! He knows a lot about Scotland and Aberdeen’s history so it was really interesting hearing some of that. Doing a private guided tour I think is the easiest and most enjoyable way to see the castles in the Aberdeen area and I am going to recommend Malcom to anyone who is planning a visit! Thank you so much Malcom for such a memorable experience!!

    The tour was wonderful! We had Neil as a guide who was very nice and friendly! He shared a lot of interesting info and very nice music on the road. A tour you need to do if you want to have a taste of Hihglands of Scotland

    Great trip with Malcom . Was able to tailor my trip to see as many castles and gave a lovely lunch at the Boat Inn. Malcolm is highly knowledgeable and a Great source of information! Would highly recommend him and a private tour.

    Bronwyn was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide who loves showing people around her home town. We had only a few hours in Aberdeen before catching our ferry to Shetland so it was a great way to get an overview of the place.

    Second tour 2 days in a row. Different guide and both were A+ and different experiences. I wish I could stay and do the remaining 4 tours. The authentic drinking place you go on this tour is a distillery, the rest of the food is local food packed in a picnic basket that is shared at the various stops like a castle and stone circle.

    This was my first time working with GPS specific technology. Loved the information, delivered in an easy to listen to and engaging tone. Witch trials, beheadings, body snatchers, Mary Queen of Scots and and anatomy school! Really fascinating. Route was interesting with varied terrain. Personally had a bit of a fail as was unable to access the church yard as it was locked, but may have been doing my tour a little late. Found my way back on route without too much bother and peered through the railings. One of the other buildings referred to has, I think been demolished since the tour was recorded (little disorientating). I think that this is well worth doing if you have an hour or two to spend. Would recommend.

    This was an unbelievable tour & experience, thanks in no small part to Roger, our guide. Rabbie's runs a highly professional operation: impeccably timely, brilliantly selected range of distilleries & driving routes through the Cairngorms and supremely informative with respect to Scotland's history. My friend and I can't rave enough about our experience. There's no question we'll be back within the year for the Islay tour. Roger, we can't thank you enough -- you're a gem of a person and Rabbie's is lucky to have you. I've got a new appreciation for Scotland, its people and its famous elixir. Just awesome!
