We really enjoyed our day. It was a busy, 12 hour tour, but well worth it. My husband, myself and our adult son did this tour and we all agreed that the day went quickly and it was a very well laid out day. You spend just enough time at each location but don't feel super rushed either. There are so many beautiful landscapes to see and Grant our tour driver was knowledgeable, funny and professional. He answered our many questions with patience and elaboration. This tour took us to many of the spots that we were told was a must see by friends and family who have traveled here before. We will definitely recommend to others and use this company again when traveling. Thanks for a great day!!

What a wonderful tour - so spectacular. Cameron was an amazing guide. It was a wonderful experience - especially for my daughter's 30 birthday!

We are a family of 4 (two adults and two kids ages 8 and 7) and we had an absolute blast on this trip. The kids loved all of the sites, and there was so much packed in that we felt we got to see a lot and time was maximized. Our tour guide, Stuart, was amazing and did a great job keeping things moving but also allowing us to enjoy our time at the sites. Highly recommended!

Jenny, our delightful guide, was amazing. She kept us occupied our entire 12 hour trip with stories and music in between gorgeous photo and walking stops. The hi lite for me was the boat trip across Loch Ness. It was magical and peaceful at the same time. Jenny took an interest in al of us and went out of her way to make this a truly memorable trip.

This was our second Rabbie’s day trip and it was also wonderful. Beautiful drive from Glasgow with commentary and music from Andrew. The multiple stops were appreciated and made the day very fun!

First and foremost, the trip was awesome. Our guide, Ben was smart, funny, kind and melancholy - everything a Scottish guide should be. We did not even realize the hours were melting away because he was that engaging and thoughtful. Each stop seemed well planned to maximize our experience. If you only have a day for the Highlands and the Lochs, this tour is perfect. Ok, except one small glitch. At our lunch break, at Spean Bridge Mill, I noticed the sandwich seemed “off”. I chalked it up to my own inexperience with Scottish foods and thus ate the sandwich anyway. Don’t get me wrong, the staff was so friendly at the cafe and anything can happen in food service, but five hours later I was in extreme distress as my stomach cramped. It lasted the entire next day. So treat yourself and take the day trip. You won’t be disappointed. Even eat at the cafe. But if it has an odd flavor, don’t eat it.

My daughters and I spent a wonderful 12-hour day exploring the Scottish Highlands. What a wonderful, beautiful, unspoiled area in the UK. Loved every part of the tour from start to finish.

Tour was fantastic, our guide was very knowledgable in the history of the Highlands and gave us tones of details about the areas we were travelling in. He also had a great music playlist of Scottish bands/singers. Doing the optional Cruise on the Loch Ness is well worth it.

Our guide Graham is so professional and well organized. Very good knowledge and clear explanation of history. One of the thing impressed me was the songs. The bus has very good audio, he introduced some songs related to the places we visited. One of them was Loch Lomond while the bus was driving along Loch Lomond. He explained the background of the song about 2 soldiers in Jacobite rising. It was so touching because we appreciated the lyrics as if the soldier was going up hill.

I had a wonderful day tour and the bus driver Graham was very entertaining and very well informed. I learned a lot about Scottish history as well as the Highlands. Would recommend this to everyone.

Full day of activities so don't schedule anything at night. Scenery is amazing, lots of picture taking and the drivers are incredible with stories and songs and engaging the riders!

Great day the beauty of the highland sceneary our Guide Alistair was informative better than trying to drive yourself as we done over 350 miles on our 12 hour return route. The 6 Rainbows we had during the trip made it extra special. Job Well Done. Looking forward to another trip when I'm north of the border.

Although this trip was over eight hours, it didn't seem like it. The day went so fast. I think its because our guide, Ben's, stories were full of interesting facts and personal experiences. Also, his choice of music was entertaining and varied. At the end, he squeezed in a visit to see the Highland cows which I really enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see sights outside of the big cities.

This trip was WONDERFUL!! My friend and I absolutely loved it! It didn't seem as long of a day as it should have. Our driver, Alistair, was informative, funny, and answered all of my silly questions. We were really happy with the trip overall, and it was definitely worth the price!

Our tour guide Grant really made the tour. He provided colorful commentary and historical tidbits along the way which made the long ride quite enjoyable. Loch Ness and Glencoe were the unrivaled attractions. Quite impressive. The added bonuses were the stops that Grant made along the way. Periodic rest breaks in lovely little towns. Highly recommend this tour.

This tour was incredible. Our driver/tour guide was safe and informative. He played fun music the entire trip and was patient with us during stops to take pictures. The small group van was great - as opposed to a larger bus. I enjoyed the boat ride on the water. Highly recommend!

This was a great all-day trip to the northern Scottish Highlands, Glencoe and Lock Ness. The meeting area is simply at an address in the city center. The 16-passenger bus is comfy but not too roomy like most things in the UK :- Our driver was very informative, talkative and willing to ask any and all questions. The trip was smooth and free of problems. The great thing about these guided trips is not having to drive and being able to stay focused on the sights out the huge windows or simply taking a nap on the long trip back to the city. This, and another trip a week earlier, will account for most of our photo memories from this trip!

A great tour! Scotland is so beautiful! Our guide/driver, John, made the long trip very pleasant - played music, told us about Scotland, made jokes! : It was an amazing experience and I definitely recommend this tour!

Wonderful experience with Graham! He was highly professional and so very knowledgeable! The weather was dreadful, but we had a great time and learned a lot! We had an emergency situation during our trip that was handled so well! As the snow came pouring down, a large bird crashed into the window of the bus, shattering the windshield. Graham was very calm and carefully pulled over to the side of the road. Because it was not safe to continue our journey, the company tried to send a replacement van. Due to timing and the lateness of the day, they were unable to get a van out to us in a reasonable amount of time, they instead sent taxis to take all the passengers back to Glasgow. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a flavor of these areas and getting big bang for their buck, so to speak. We saw a lot and learned a lot in a short amount of time. The bus was very comfortable and the group size very manageable. Again, highly recommend!
