Peter was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the tour immensely. He gave us a lot of guidance as to how to spend our time.

Ended up being the only one of this tour due to cancellations. Got a one on one with the driver - Fraser, and he was great. We kind of did the normal tour in reverse, to take advantage of timing at the Robert Burns Museum - - - a very informative tour from start to finish.

We love historical estates, Robert Burns home on one end of the spectrum, a meager living, to grand living at Culzean Park. Our first stop was to the Whitelee Wind Farm and visitors center. Has a small cafe, bathrooms, and hands on educational exhibits.

Amazing tour! Even with only two travellers, the tour went ahead. Our guide, Juliette, was professional, accommodating, knowledgeable, friendly and funny. She conducted her tour and conveyed her information conversationally. It was a glorious day! Culzean is a beautiful castle, the Ayreshire coast glorious and all the information about Robbie Burns fascinating. Couldn't have enjoyed it more.

The trip in Airshire was very pleasant. The countryside was surprisingly beautiful, shame that many tourists do not travel in the Scottish lowlands. The guide was excellent, he obviously loves and knows the local history and culture. He even included appropriate songs where to discribe his storytelling. Wonderful! I recomend it!

David was awesome! Culzean is a beautiful castle in a beautiful setting. 'Rabbie' Burns birthplace and the Brig O Doon are just so charming. The countryside and coastal areas are lovely. A nice way to spend the day.

We really enjoyed this tour and all the interesting places we visited on it. Culzean Castle grounds are beautiful - definitely go down to the beach and walk around to the castle from that direction.

Fantastic driver, told us so much about this area where we had not been before.
• Submitted 19 Aug 2013
Thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it, even in the rain. There was plenty of time to explore and enjoy our surroundings. What a lovely drive through the country side. These places are forever engraved in my memory. I would highly recommend Rabbies, John did a great job as a tour guide and driver. Dorcas - Brampton Ontario Canada

This tour was wonderful but I do have at least one fault with it which was not totally the tour's doing. The buildings of the Robert Burns site are so far apart, it would have been impossible to take them all in. Even with the driver's help at offering to drop us and pick us up at another place, the walking would not have been possible to take in all of them. Tickets sold were for a combination of entrances and would have been better if sold individually if requested. We did walk by the actual cottage with the help of our guide/driver. And the gardens would have deserved more quiet time to sit for a minute!
