We just have a wonderful guide ‘Jim’ with us for 5 days. It was the best tour experiences I ever had in life. Jim is super fun, knowledgeable, helpful, honest and passionate. Highland is beautiful and wonderful, but without him, sure the whole trip would not be the same. He is truly the best person not only as a tour guide but also a friend. Thank you Jim to make our trip outstanding. Thanks Jim by heart.
Had an amazing tour to the highlands and Skye in October. Weather was good most of the time, and the light was exceptional. It is practically impossible to capture the scenery and light the way it is experienced when you see it in real life. I came prepared for cold, wet and windy weather and was surprised by nice, sunny and almost warm conditions. Scotland never stops to amaze me. Beautiful scenery, lovely experiences. I keep coming back and joining this tour has not done anything to change this. Scotland is awesome! The guide on this tour was Donald, and he was very good. He was friendly and funny and professional in both his driving and his guiding. So thank you Rabbies for yet another great tour.
We loved everything about this tour but must give special kudos to Murray. Not only that he is an amazing font of knowledge about every aspect of every single location with a very entertaining way of sharing that knowledge not only that he has astonishing driving skills he took extraordinary steps to help resolve my husbands illness during our trip. He called on personal contacts to assist us in getting him seen by the doctor in the small clinic in Ullapool the next morning and getting the required medication from the local chemist. I cannot praise him highly enough and would plan a future tour around his schedule!
Enjoyed cramming a lot in to these five full days of traveling through the northwest part of Scotland. Unfortunately the weather wasnt the best on this trip, we got rain every day, but it did not stop us from enjoying the adventure and seeing some amazing scenery. On this tour, you get a taste of the highlands, the lochs, the fishing villages, some castles, and the lovely Isle of Skye followed by the very interesting Eilean Donan castle tour. Wish we could have seen more on the Isle of Skye, it has so much to offer, but can only squeeze in so much in one day. May have to return for more some day! Edinburgh is a beautiful city to start and end from too, just amazing medieval history!
Thank you to our amazing tour guide and driver Donald who showed our group all around the Highlands. Being in the small van meant we could access narrow roads and get off the beaten track. We saw so many incredible sights and always have enough time to explore and take photos. Donald always shared interesting and funny stories, accompanied by Scottish music. I would definitely recommend the Highland Explorer, we saw places we would have never been able to find ourselves. Thank you Rabbies and Donald!
We want to Thank Donald for a fantastic tour. It was a wonderful trip and he is a great travel director ! His love for his country and passion for people made our travel fun and absolutely fabulous. Donald is a Great Asset to Rabbies and we will recommend Rabbies to our friends and family. Thank You. Robert and Charmaine Benfield South Africa
We took this tour in April 2017 with Nicky and we enjoyed both our guide and our fellow travelers. The scenery was beautiful and with the small bus we were able to go to places others could not. Good choice of bbs and lunch stops. Overall a great tour that only made me wish for more. One place we didnt go that was advertised and the reason we took this tour over others was Plockton, I expressed my desire to go there but was told we are not going to go! If you advertise a specific town, then it should be included in the tour.
My husband and I recently went on the Skye and Far North Tour. This tour was outstanding. The tour bus is very comfortable, the tour was planned to perfection and we loved our bus driver Donald. He was very informative about everything we were seeing and did it all with a great sense of humor to keep us entertained. The Isle of Skye is not to be believed its so beautiful. We are back home in California and still sharing Donalds songs and stories from our trip. Added bonus, we met some great new friends from various countries. I highly recommend this tour.
What an amazing tour! Ok, so yes, we had the best tour guide to ourselves for 5 days (sorry to all the other tours last week), and yes, Scotlands weather decided to make it sunny - SUNNY and WARM - for at least half that time AND we had the best fellow travellers sharing and making friends. So these things kind of biased my opinion, but, for the first (of many?) Rabbies Tours I have been on, this was fantastic. Bucket List, schmucket list - gotta think of more things to put on it now Ive checked so many off. Bealach Na Ba, Quiraing, meeting Highland Coos, a stag....on a crag(!!), check, check and check! Not to mention the promised waterfalls, beaches, castles, harbour views and fishing boats. Highlight? a picnic, with everyone just chillin, in the sun, on a cliff, with panoramic views. Thank you to Gill B, our fabulous guide - with the knowledge and fun but importantly, the approachability to make a first time solo traveller feel welcome and comfortable. Thank you to my fellow travellers for my being able to share my experience with you. Gotta do this again xxxxxx
I must say this experience of discovering the West Highlands and the Isle of Skye in 4 days has been amazing. Not only did we discover stunning places but also we had a fantastic guide. Pete was friendly, kind and helpful at every moment and helped us to taste a sip of the real life in the Highlands. We all had a fantastic time and had the chance tp mingle with the locals, which was fantastic. Thanks, Rabbies for this unforgettable experience and special thanks to Pete for discovering us the wonders of the Highlands and its people. Looking forward to being back in Scotland to have some new experience with Rabbies. 100 recommended.

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 48 hours for our one day tours, 15 days for two to nine day tours, and 21 days for 10+ day 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.
Your tour will always follow the itinerary as closely as possible. While there are ongoing coronavirus restrictions throughout the UK and Ireland, itineraries are more likely to change than usual as opening hours and capacities at many visitor attractions are reduced and subject to change. Your driver-guide will keep you up to up to date on the road, and we'll try to get in touch about any large changes prior to your departure.
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 aim to accommodate everyone. To read more information on how we do this, click here to go to our accessibility guide.
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're protected by ABTOT when you chose to let us reserve your accommodation on a multi-day tour. This means you can claim back anything you've paid us if we become bankrupt. Read our terms and conditions for more information.
