My sister and I saw a lot of Scotland and got a wonderful impression of nature. Our guide Keith was a very safe driver at all times. Keith has a lot of knowledge about Scotland. With Scottish music during the breaks in the story, we were able to enjoy the wonderful landscape. Unfortunately our English isn't very good and we couldn't understand everything Keith said. For this reason, he spent more time with the English-speaking guests, with whom he had a lot of fun.

Our tour guide Chris was a exceptional tour guide. He has a extensive knowledge of Scotish history and as we found out, is a very talented storyteller. He knew the answers to every question my history buff spouse asked him. This is our 2nd Rabbies tour and we highly recommend them if you want a small group tour that not only fulfills the itinerary but makes time to go off the beaten path to see sights most other tourist won't ever see.

The Outer Hebrides are so beautiful. We had an amazing tour, though there is a lot of time in the van and the tour is perhaps one day too long. We were really ready to get off the bus. I can't say enough about our guide Mark. He is a fantastic guide and an even better driver. I felt completely safe and well informed the whole time.

Good tour and guide. Individual wishes were taken into account and the guide knew a lot. The only disadvantage: you often only had a short time to see the sights. But that's just the way it is on tours like this. Accommodations were great.

Amazing scenery! Our guide Sean was a wealth of knowledge about the history and the places we went. Very flexible as we were a small group and would cater to our individual needs.
