My first solo multi-day trip was 10/10. Chris our tour guide from Rabbies was excellent. He showed us all the good spot and entertained us even when it was raining on the first day of the trip. The hotel was also very nice and clean. We had rainy, sunny, and snowy days in our 3 day trip so we got all the best of Scottish weather. My only regret is we couldn't see the scenery in spring colours. I think I'll have my next trip in Spring or Autumn and will definitely ask for Chris from Rabbies.

Booking a tour with Rabbie’s is ALWAYS a good idea. We have enjoyed yet another tour with them to the Isle of Skye and we had a blast! Many thanks to our guide Liam for organising a great schedule that makes the most of the day light and for braving the storm just so we can see a lot of beautiful views. Most importantly he never failed to remind us about the COVID guidelines all throughout the tour. I highly recommend it.

This was amazing! The tour guide, Michael, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He gives an in-depth sharing throughout the trip. The scenery was unparalleled. Every stop feels like a Microsoft screensaver-to-be. The B&B experience was great as well. Clean rooms, excellent services. Would STRONGLY recommend this to anyone who visits Scotland.

We thoroughly enjoyed it! We were taken around with great enthusiasm. They were very knowledgeable and entertaining. Going out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The tour was wonderful!!!

It was an amazing experience ,Alan our guide had a good sense of humor and so much knowledge on the history of each and every destination we covered . 5star for sure …
