First day on Islay started up in a brilliant way – wiskytasting with a seaview. Note how the Eagertotaste is sitting on his hands. After some more tasting Kjell is almost ready for a dance on the beach. Soundtrack chosen by our wonderful guide Dan. Back to Bowmore at night a spectacular sunset over Loch Indaal took place. We stayed in the actual destillery area for three nights and loved it. In the morning Niclas was on top of Dunyvaig and the sky was the limit. Three more destilleries to come. Thank you Dan for the best tour ever from the four Swedes. Also thanks to our great neighbours the Maltgeezers!
The highlight of my holiday was the tour to Islay led by Keith Fraser. Great itinerary, accommodation and comfortable journey. Keith was probably the best tour guide I have ever met - knowledgeable, attentive, dedicated and interesting.
We had a wonderful time on our tour to Islay with Rabbies bustours from May, 8ths until May 11ths. The tour was called whisky tour from Edingburgh to Isle of Islay. Special thanks to our wonderful tourguide DOUG. He showed us all the the places on Islay and of course all the famous wisky destilleries. He kept telling us interesting stories or even funny stories, to cheer us up. It was never boring! So we spend a lot of good times on Islay. I must say the people who live on the Island are so nice. Bowmore Destillery Cottages were very clean and nice accomodations for us. We enjoyed our stay and will come back in the future hopefully.
I did a four day Islay Tour with my mom. This tour was brilliant and Peter the driver/tour director did a fantastic job. Peter did such a great job that mom wants to go on more Rabbies Tours
I took the Speyside whisky tour last year, and enjoyed it so much that I decided to take another - to Islay. As a Scot, it is probably to my shame that I had never been before, so it was a chance to put that right, and indulge in some serious whisky tasting. Our driver/guide was Alf, who ran the tour perfectly, organising distillery visits (and giving us plenty of time at these), as well as taking us to places of interest, with plenty of photo opportunities. The only thing he had no control over was the weather, but hey - its Scotland. He was extremely knowledgeable and kept us amused with his tales. Bowmore cottages were lovely - spacious and comfortable. All in all, another excellent tour.
In the end of June I went on the 4 day tour to Islay. The tour was fully booked so there were 16 passengers and our great guide, Keith. I’ve been on a few tours with Rabbie’s before but this tour was a bit different from the rest. All though we get to see quite a lot of scenery, this tour really is about whisky. So if you like whisky, especially the smoky ones from Islay, don’t hesitate. This tour is absolutely great. During the two whole days spent on Islay we visited 6 distilleries. It was interesting to see how whisky is made and to get to taste different whiskies. The highlight for me was day 3, the day we visited Ardbeg, Lagavulin and Laphroaig distilleries. The tours and tastings of all 6 distilleries were a great experience and I’m really glad I decided to do this tour. Keith was an excellent guide with a great knowledge of whisky. He was kind, helpful and also had some funny stories to tell. I had a great time.
Gail was a wonderful tour guide, lots of information and tons of fun! Thanks again for another great memory.
From April 14th to 17th I joined the tour from Edinburgh to the Isle of Islay with a party of 16 and our tour guide Keith. It was my first trip to Scotland. Our tour guide Keith made this trip to an outstanding experience. His knowledge about this beautiful country and its sights were interesting and entertaining at once. The visit of the distilleries was an absolute must for all whiskey lovers. The variety and the impressions were incredible. Our group became a little family and the joint evenings with our own tastings has united the team. Thanks to everybody! This was an unforgettable tour! Thanks to Rabbies and Keith for having the possibility to make such a tour! Greetings from Germany -)
This was my second Rabbies tour and look forward to going on more. Driver/ Guides Dan Doug were excellant, informative, fun, whisky lovers. Its a great way to sample good whisky see the beautiful country of Scotland. I especially loved meeting getting to know the people on the tour..
Diese Tour war gut organisiert, stressfrei, sehr interessant und Erlebnisurlaub pur. Vielen Dank an unseren immer gut gelaunten, mit vielen nützlichen Infos in einem verständlichen Englisch versorgenden Guide PETE (Peter)!!! So eine tolle Tour habe ich noch nicht miterleben dürfen. Empfehlung: immer wieder mit Rabbies.
On this tour we reserve you rooms in the beautiful Bowmore Distillery Cottages.
The cottages have between three and six twin bedrooms. Due to the shared nature of the accommodation, individual bedrooms don't have lockable doors.
The kitchen and lounge facilities are shared with other passengers, and basic self-service breakfast ingredients are provided. Full Scottish breakfasts are available at the nearby hotels if you prefer, payable locally.
Prices are £43.50 per person per night twin/double share or £75 per night for a single. For this option, please select 'B&B en-suite' as your first choice when booking the tour online. When these rooms are full, we book you into a nearby B&B. Rooms at the cottages are limited and are reserved on a first come first served basis. Local B&B charges are £50 per person per night.
There's also a limited number of 3* hotel rooms available on this tour. For this option, please select three star hotel as your first choice when booking.
We contact you afterwards to arrange payment for the accommodation.
The UK and Ireland's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, we only pick up from our central meeting points. What's more is leaving the city using the most direct route also reduces the carbon footprint of our tours.
We don't recommend bringing your car into the centre of our departure cities. It can be hard to find parking, and there are excellent public transportation services.
Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.
If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.
We have a cancellation period of three days for our one day tours, and 21 days for longer tours. If cancelled outside this period, we'll give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this period, refunds are at our discretion. Click here to view full terms and conditions.
It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.
Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable 16-seat mini-coaches have huge windows. So, you'll always get a good view.
Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.
We regret we don't carry children under the age of five on our scheduled tours.
You can ask us about the tours we recommend for younger children. And if your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide them with a suitable booster seat.
We want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.
We exclude visitor attractions in your tour price because it lets you travel your way. It means you can pamper yourself with a luxury lunch or skip an attraction whenever you feel like it.
You don't need to. We stop in small towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.
Let's be honest, our driver-guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.
We advise you take out travel insurance. You can click here for excellent rates.
