This was my second tour with Rabbies and again: I loved it. Our tourguide Emily did a splendid job telling loads of info about the history of the Highlands, the clans, the mountains and Skye. Beside the amazing dramatic scenery of the land we were driving thru, I learned alot too. And thats really something I was striving for.

Colin was our guide that day, and he was the best tour guide I have ever met throughout my whole trip, he was patient and willing to answers all sorts of questions, even willing to share many extra knowledge with us! We learnt a lot from this trip and I will definitely find Colin again for the next trip in INVERNESS! THUMBS UP TO COLIN!

Our guide, Willie, provided us with a brilliant tour. His knowledge and love of this country was evident, and he has a sense of humour too. His choice of music such as The Corries' Flower of Scotland was perfect as we travelled through the country of the Clearances. I highly recommend this tour.
