    We had such a good time on Bruce M.’s tour today. He was super knowledgeable, funny, and kept things lively during a 12 hour excursion. Would highly recommend this adventure!!

    Martin ( and James!) were absolutely professional and they definitely made the trip very enjoyable, not to mention their sense of humour which made the tour all the more interesting. We had the opportunity to enjoy the stunning views of Scotland along with all kinds of interesting historical facts. Thanks again!

    I really enjoyed our tour with the Hairy Coos. Our guide, Scott, was great and found a good balance of talking/entertaining us during driving time and playing music. It's definitely a long day, but you cover and see a lot.

    O M G - what an amazing 3 days. This Rabbies tour was such a value! Our guide Jim Devine not only took us to outstanding places, but his knowledge of the area and its history grounded us in the land and fed our passion for this beautiful country.

    Jim Devine also went above and beyond to single-handedly help us find a place to stay when our hotel seemed not to exist. Can't say enough about Rabbies and our incredible guide. Would book another tour with them in an instant. It was DEVINE!

    The only way to see the vaults (from what I understand) is to take a tour, so I hopped on an Auld Reekie tour. It was really easy to book online, and the meetup spot is also easy to locate. The tour gives you more than just a view of the vaults, you also briefly walk through part of Old Town and get enough of an understanding of the historical context for the vaults to really appreciate how creepy they are. Sometimes on a tour you get a sense that the guide has memorized the material and is on autopilot; that wasn't the case with Fraser. He was able to break the ice and keep our group laughing while answering our questions and leading us through the vaults.

    We had the most incredible day with Highland Explorer Tours.

    Traveling with 3 kids, Steve B made the trip the best and I wouldn’t imagine doing another trip with another guide.

    12 hour seems like a long time when evaluating a trip but it is the way to go. (It even got us thinking about a multi day trip next time)

    Stops in Glen Coe and taking the boat on Loch Ness were our families highlights.

    Excellent experience. Australian David with glasses :-) was excellent. He was funny, personable and knowledgable. My wife Jen was apprehensive about going on this tour because she is not into scary experiences. Afterward she told me she was glad she went and loved it. That made my in-tour and post tour time 6 stars!! Great time. Thanks. Jim

    Excellent walking tour!
    Our guide Scott was so knowledgeable and did his best to meet the groups needs.
    Very worthwhile way to cover Edinburgh’s long history.

    After Pandemic it’s our first family trip to Iyle of Skye and initially planned this trip in June to cover Iyle of Skye and Jacobite same time but unfortunately tickets are full for June. I got limited seats availability in May and I was wondering about the weather as it was forecast for 80%rain for May 21 to May 23rd and took risk and finally booked the tickets. We started the journey every visit during the trip was good and tourist guide was explaining and kept us not bored. He guided us to explore many things in this trip food, stay, places etc and My kid and spouse and my self enjoyed the Hogwarts Train, three sisters, and ferry rides specific.

    It’s so memorable trip for us to stay out of our routine work.

    Thanks to Highland explorer covering the Iyle of Skye and The Jacobite train ride.

    And finally thanks to Steve and my co-passengers.

    A really great tour of the Scottish countryside and Isle of Skye. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the places we were seeing, which made the experience that much more enjoyable. He was also flexible to accommodate the tastes of the guests and made our experience truly unique. The vehicle was also very comfortable and reliable.

    The views are stunning and the stops were well-chosen and well timed. Our guide Aleix was fabulous - he told us such interesting and relatable facts throughout the journey (lots of connections with popular culture - the story about Braveheart was incredible) and did so with humour and in a very clear way. This was my second time in Scotland, and his entertaining and heartfelt storytelling made me love Scotland even more than I did the first time <3 I also couldn't believe he shared all of this encyclopaedic knowledge while driving for 12 hours - I hope he gets paid 2 salaries because that's a 2 persons' job. Had a wonderful day, I highly recommend the tour!

    Our guide Fraser was incredible! Such interesting stories the entire trip. He was incredibly knowledgeable, funny, and very interesting to listen to! Only thing is, I wish we got a little bit more direction on the spots to see the train from, we wanted the iconic Harry Potter side but didn’t realize how to get there until it was too late! We still saw the train, just from a different vantage point. All in all, great day trip from Edinburgh and lovely way to see more of Scotland in a short period of time! Highly recommend!

    This was a great tour and Graham, our driver, did a wonderful job of entertaining us and keeping us informed. The first stop, the Kelpies, was nice place to get out and stretch our legs. The second stop, by Loch Lomond, was my favorite. We walked the trail along the lake, where the scenery was beautiful. At our lunch stop in Aberfoyle we found 2 of the 3 pubs closed, so we went to the Aberfoyle Delicatessen and had sandwich rolls that were great. The final, and longest stop was at Stirling Castle. We had plenty of time to see everything we wanted to see.

    This was our second tour with Rabbie's and I would highly recommend them.
