Amazing trip!

I was a little apprehensive to take a tour in the winter, but everything was wonderful! Our group was small, so that allowed for more flexibility to go and see more than expected. Our tour leader was amazing and shared so much love for such a beautiful country. Highly recommended! Best trip I’ve ever had.

Our guide, Stephan, made our 4 days in the Highlands and Isle of Skye very enjoyable. He did his very best to offset the terrible weather we encountered. We saw many beautiful sights that he brought to life with his very entertaining stories.

My senior citizen mother, sister and me were taking some time out together - the trip was paced well and suited all ages. My mother absolutely loved it. Andrew from the tour company Rabbies was extremely solicitous of my mother, letting her do things she felt up to doing. The scenery was beautiful and the group was nice. We even celebrated the graduation of one of our fellow travelers! Good people to travel with!

Stefan was a wonderful tour guide and made the trip spectacular with his stories, music and enthusiasm for Skye. The mini bus allowed us to go on curvy roads high in the mountains for amazing walks and views. The B and Bs were very comfortable and everyone slept well. The best way to visit the Highlands!

Everything about this was wonderful! I personally don't like tours, but this was a trip with my mom and she felt much more comfortable doing the tour. We had a great time. All the places we stayed were wonderful and our tour guide through Rabbies was lovely to spend 4 days with. We some some incredible things. Of course I like to stop for every photo opp and this just isn't possible on a tour like this, but I felt good about the stops we did have. I also felt the value of the tour was exceptional. It was a very fair price for all the transport and accommodations. We loved it!

Excellent tour. Tour guide/driver was exceptional. Beautiful scenery and we learned so much of Scotland's history. Only issue we had was that other than my wife, myself and the tour guide/driver, every one else on the bus was Chinese and spoke very limited English. We would have preferred to be on a tour with other people that we could more easily communicate and interact with.

Our Rabbies tour exceeded all expectations. Our host, Audrey, was fantastic, sharing history and local stories with us throughout our journey. We were privileged to see areas in the Highlands and Isle of Skye that many tourists may miss and our 4 Day Highlands Tour provided memories that we will cherish. I recommend this tour to all ages!
