WOWLANDER!!
Aug 2021
We have just come back from having the most amazing time on the 4-day Outlander tour with Mac, our tour guide. To start with, our bus was wonderfully comfy, clean and provided an excellent ‘home’ as we travelled around the Highlands. From the minute we set off from Edinburgh, Mac began sharing his specialist knowledge of Scotland, including tales, history of the Jacobites and legendary Scottish figures and traditional songs which continued throughout the four days and brought everything to life. This made the trip extra special for us, to have such a Highland specialist leading us through our tour. Every location was spectacular and as well as seeing all the Outlander locations, we saw so much more of the Highlands along the way. A real highlight for us was the bag pipes which Mac played to enhance different experiences and locations. Whether you’re an outlander fan or have never heard of it, this tour is an absolutely amazing way to experience beautiful Scotland and to learn more than you ever thought you could about its history. Anything you see in a picture is blown out of the window when you see it in person. We didn’t want it to end and felt quite emotional when it did. We are already exploring which Rabbies tour to book for Winter.

Great Tour Guide, Good Tour, Terrible Accommodation Department
Sep 2019
The tour itinerary was good, but our Tour Guide, Ross, greatly enhanced the experience with his smart appearance, polite manners, very deep knowledge of the age when Outlander was set and the Jacobite situation. As an Englishman, I found Ross's views, from a Scottish perspective, most thought provoking and illuminating.
However, the trip was really let down by the Rabbies's Accommodation department, who we tried to talk to about problem's we were experiencing, but they never bothered to respond to Ross's phone calls on our behalf. Then part way through the tour, we accidentally came across the Manager of Rabbies Accommodation Department, Suu, who it turned out acted as a driver/tour guide for part of the week (or when it suited her!?). When I tried to talk to her about the problems that we were having with the accommodation, she just brushed me of in a very brusque and rude manner and walked away. The fact that Rabbies Accommodation Department had a part time "manager" could explain why it was not really that good. But then as Suu seemed to have no pride in the way she dressed, showed that she had little respect for herself, her employers, her co-workers and the clients of Rabbies, who were paying her salary. I have never had any cause to give a critical review of any escorted tour holiday that I have been on before, but this situation really upset me and left a sour taste after what was otherwise a nice holiday.

Suu is our Accommodation Manager but having started her Rabbie's Career as a driver-guide she is scheduled to lead a couple of tours a year. There is obviously an official rota for this and we ensure her team are prepared, supported and equipped to deal with any issues that arise during these rare, short absences. In this particular situation, you did not receive a response from our accommodation team because there was no message passed to them that you needed assistance. This is a valid complaint in itself but has nothing to do with our accommodation team nor the way they are managed. Each of our guides must take responsibility for their own tour group and ensure that messages are relayed so that appropriate assistance can be provided. We regret that correct procedures were not followed here and that our accommodation team therefore did not receive the message about your concerns and had no opportunity to offer assistance. We can understand why you confronted Suu in these circumstances but you did so when she was out on a site visit with her own tour group and without the resources to assist you. She was not in a position to help and was absolutely right to refer you back to your own guide for assistance. Respectful communication is obviously important and we do apologise that you felt Suu was rude and dismissive. There were numerous faults and areas for improvement that we have addressed with you directly but to suggest that someone has no pride or respect for themselves or others based on their choice of clothing (a casual kilt in this case), is completely inappropriate - what an awful thing to say. This amounts to a personal attack and we strongly feel that its wrong to judge someones character or ability based on their appearance. We are pleased that you enjoyed the tour and appreciate the feedback that you have shared separately about your accommodation. Kind Regards, Aimee

Searching for Jamie Fraser - Rabbies tours
Sep 2019
We had an excellent tour with Amy even though she could not find Jamie! She was very informative and funny. She never seemed to mind all the questions from us. The scenery was breathtaking and even though a lot of the places were Outlander based, you still learned a lot about Scottish history. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour and if you are fortunate, you will get Amy as a guide.

Ask for Amy she is even better than a man in a kilt!
Sep 2019 • Friends
We travelled to Edinburgh for a holiday and to do the Outlander tour as fans of the tv show. We booked Rabbies as the idea of a small group and the itinerary looked great. On the first morning we travelled to the bus station in Edinburgh to find our guide and mini bus. From there we had the most amazing 4 days. Amy our guide was fantastic, she was not only friendly and welcoming but also a wealth of knowledge. Within the first few hours everyone on the tour was introduced to each other and talking. The 4 day tour took as to all of the major filming locations and Amy went above and beyond to make sure we saw all the sights along the way. Day 2 at Clava Cairns after joking we were going to go through the stones we met Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish! I cannot recommend Rabbies highly enough and Amy made the tour exceptional. We dubbed it the 'magical mystery tour' which it certainly lived up to. Book with confidence that you will have a fun filled, knowledge finding, scenery viewing and overall amazing experience.

This was my first holiday in 15 years and We are now saving to go again with Rabbies next year.

Outlander 4day Tour from Edinburgh.
Sep 2019
We started our journey from the bus station in Edinbrugh and was met by a very nice booking in clerk.
The minibus arrived on time and the driver introduced himself as Ross MacArthur He was very polite professional and a good representative for the company.
Ross gave us daily run downs on the schedule and our journey began. Ross was the perfect driver for this tour his knowledge on Outlander film sites and destinations was impeccable. He entertained us with music that fitted the scenes which added to all our excitement. Ross also gave us guidance on the best places to eat when we reached our destinations . We where all very we'll looked after during the trip. The other travellers where strangers who became friends very quickly . Our accommodation was very comfortable in the 3star hotels booked by Rabbies We could not have wished for more it was quite emotional when the trip ended and we all arrived back at the bus station
This was the best trip I have experienced to date and I highly recommend it to prospective holiday makers with an interest in Outlander. Thankyou Ross and Rabbies

4 Day Outlander Tour
My husband and I absolutely loved our 4 day Outlander Tour with guide, Ross MacArthur! He did a wonderful job incorporating the Outlander Books, television series, and accompanying history into an interesting, enjoyable experience! Ross is not only very knowledgeable about the subject matter but he also is kind and has a great sense of humor that made the four days fly by! He went out of his way to make sure that we enjoyed ourselves and even pointed out additional Outlander sites and interest items that we all loved that weren’t advertised in the tour description. I’m the big Outlander fan, my husband was making me happy by going on this tour but he ended up loving it as much as I did! We highly recommend Ross as a guide and this Outlander Tour! 😃

In Search of Jamie
We had a wonderful time exploring Scotland with our guide, Aimee, on our 4-day Outlander tour. For first time visitors to Scotland, this tour allowed us to experience so much more than we imagined possible coupled with letting us walk the streets of both the real and fictional places planted in our minds by the books and the show. It was a “you are there” moment deftly orchestrated by our enthusiastic guide who amplified our experience with soundtrack music (while she told us tales of the Bonny prince and the Jacobites), traditional Scottish tunes, and audible passages from the book.
We so enjoyed our time with our fellow Outlander enthusiasts (4 couples in all) sharing thoughts of our favorite scenes and snapping pics of each other in all those important spots..especially that money shot at Lallybroch. We loved it all. Good fun, great fellowship, history, music, great accommodations. We had it all. Thank you, Aimee. We had a ball!

Our group of 8 were all big/avid fans. Not only did we see the landmarks, filming locations, and just simply unbelievable scenery, but we learned a lot from our guide and driver, Amy. (And fellow passengers.) Stops were planned but we also had flexibility re: lunch, snacks. The van was comfortable and window views generous. Interspersed on our scenic drives was a great selection of Outlander
Soundtracks, audio readings, and related music (e.g., Skyfall theme while traveling the James Bond route in the Lowlands.) Accommodations were good (Jurys’ Inn less so), and Amy’s guidance to local restaurants was helpful, as was her use of dry erase charting on the big map at the van’s front. Rabbies is a trustworthy group; avoid the big busses if you can. Scotland, our first trip, was all we hoped for (we spent the 1st 8 days in Edinburgh and North Berwick).

Awesome tour. Lizzie was an exceptional guide
I can't give enough praise for lizzie, our guide. She was exceptional. We had a small group of 6 on the tour bus and it was great.

By the end of the trip we felt like a family.

I would highly recommend this tour with Rabbles. The minibus was very comfortable and our driver, Jim, was entertaining and knowledgeable. I felt that we got to see a lot of things that were off the beaten track and the sights were amazing.
