Just came back from the Isle of Skye 3 day tour. The driver made the trip as safe as he possibly could, covid-wise, with the minibus only taking 4 ppl to preserve social distancing. I felt safe and well cared for.

I have been to Skye before with Rabbies, as well as on several other trips with Rabbies, but our guide Alistair still managed to make the trip very interesting. His knowledge of geomorphology was much appreciated and so was his good humour. He still managed to find new things to show us and even arranged for us to go on the turn-table ferry at Glenelg on the way back, which was phenomenal. It was worth every penny, as Rabbies managed to somehow arrange reasonably priced accommodation in Portree in peak season, which was quiet.

Even if you live in Scotland, it's well worth considering going with Rabbies for the experience, local knowledge and a well organised trip. The roads up there were quite challenging, but the guide did amazingly well, being polite and careful with more vulnerable road users. Overall, I think I ran out of Rabbies trips I can do, but I will be back if they add new destinations.

MUST DO excursion - I wish I had done this tour on my very first visit to Scotland several years ago. Going from Edinburgh, we saw so many beautiful, historic places that I had not seen before and stopped in quaint towns for comfort stops and snacks that truly conveyed the culture and personality of Scotland in a way that I had not experienced. This was greatly due to our marvelous tour guide/driver, who gave recommendations for coffee, ice cream, or where to capture the perfect photo.

BEST tour guide/driver! Scott was safe, considerate and treated everyone like family. Our group, originally 7 groups of strangers, a total of 15 passengers ended by taking our meals together, taking group pictures and sharing the experience of a lifetime, the Isle of Skye. Scott made sure that everyone was enjoying their trip and customized the days to our group's preferences. I don't know any of the other tour guides, but when we stopped at a landmark, many tour guides would come to our bus to chat with Scott, I would recommend requesting his bus.

Our accommodations were clean and located right on the water. Perhaps related to post-covid, meals were sometimes a challenge on Skye, but one night, Scott just stopped at a Chippy so we could get take-away. I thought the tour was an excellent value and would use this company again in the future for a different tour.

Skye is a fantastic island to visit and Rabbie's provided an excellent all-around experience. Smaller groups make it more special. Everything was very well organised in modern minibuses driven by expert guides. Jenny, our guide, was both friendly and professional and ensured that everyone had a great time with safety above all. Highly recommended!

My husband and I took the Isle tour with Jenny H. and she was simply fantastic. Her warm and lively personality really helped knit our group together. She has exceptional storytelling abilities and fun asides throughout the trip. She hangs artistic towels in the bus stairwell that are cute in themselves, but really help you figure out which bus is yours after a stop. Her experience allowed her to be adaptable to the weather and to personal whims, and she had excellent musical mix tapes that she even would customize when she learned of your other favorite Scottish bands. We went a year ago and could not stop thinking of her and the people we met on the trip. We stopped in at a crofters place, which was a really essential way to get the island. I tricked the husband into watching Outlanders season 1 ahead of time, and she gave just enough info in the regular tour to not overwhelm the males but still let us fans understand much of its historical relevance. The vans have charging stations and are very comfortable. We had a few teens along with their parents and she worked to make sure she pointed out relevant things for them, taking us to a music video site they all knew and were glad to see. Parting was bittersweet, and we hope to do her Ireland tour once we are able.

Even though we are the only group who joined the tour that day, they did not cancel the trip. Our tour guide Jenny is amazing and professional. She knew that we want to see the highland cow and make a snowman so much and she made my dream come true. Going to Skye in winter is much less crowded with different scenery. Definitely will go to Skye again in summer via Rabbie again ;) Thank you Jenny so much by providing a VIP experience to us!

The trip to Highland is surprising good! I did not expect such a great trip provided by a local travel agency. They do care about everyone in the group and our driver, Cameron also as our guide was so nice. He is very knowledgeable, telling many stories in Highland that I did not approach. (I travelled with a Chinese agency before in highland) this trip was very safe, sensitiser is provided on the bus and everyone was wearing a mask. I can’t tell how amazing and comfortable this trip is, our guide organised everything very well. In addition, I did enjoy the Scottish music Cameron played during the trip. He is the most patient and knowledgeable guide I’ve ever met! This trip to Skye was absolutely worth!

This tour was fantastic and greatly organised! All staff from Rabbies was friendly and helpful, and available even at late hours. Isle of Skye is one of the most beautiful places I have been (and I have been in many stunning places). The Highlands are a very special and unique place.
Our tour guide, Cameron, was great – always careful with anyone in the group – he is a very knowledge man who clearly loves his country. He made our experience more interesting and fun by sharing stories about the places we were visiting. His playlist was fantastic with very beautiful songs, always related to a story he was telling and / or a place we were visiting. The whole experience was excellent!

I will use Rabbies again when I go back to Scotland.

Travelling on these guided tours I am often unsure if I am getting a touristic version or a realistic version of the place.

However this was different, we were part of a small group that headed up on the Wednesday and stopped off at some of the most stunning places and hidden gems, the day in Skye was amazing and the place took my breath away.

We were not rushed or harried from place to place and saw all we were promised, Jenny the guide was absolutely wonderful and the perfect host.

A stunning experience that changed my view on Scotland and for the better.

I went to Skye during the winter, and let me tell you, Skye still packs a punch! Our guide, Alan, was able to show us everything that Skye has to offer all while getting pelted by hail. Pretty impressive if you ask me. I met a hairy coo, saw many waterfalls and felt the wild and untamed spirit of Scotland.

Alan was very knowledgeable and hilarious. He could definitely give it as good as he got it, and that's coming from an Aussie! I would definitely recommend this tour.
