Michael at the wheel

David James Posted on 16/09/2017

Enjoyed five wonderful days and five types of weather, off and on the beaten track with Michael who went that extra mile every day to take us to locations that surprised and delighted us.

Magical Scotland Thank you Doug :)

Nazl305 Can Posted on 09/09/2017

I became a Scotland lover after my trip. I enjoyed every minute of 5 days 305 spent. I loved the mystic lochs,waterfalls and magnificent mountains. Scotland is a very beautiful country. And as 305 see every scotch is addicted to nature. But it is definitely our tour guide Doug made my trip meaningful and enjoyable. I liked Dougs music very much. I continued to listen after 305 return to Turkey. Every minute was wisely planned with stories and music. Doug is a wonderful storyteller. You can blindly trust him. If 305 have a chance to take a trip again,305 would definitely travel with Doug. Nazl305

wonderful experience

Marnie Wolpert Posted on 04/06/2017

Not only the beautiful country, with mountains and lochs, but our driver/tour guide Nicky O made this holiday a spectacular one. So knowledgable about Scottish history and a wonderful story teller. He made up a special song for our multi-national group. One of the best tour holidays I have had in my many years of travel. I am making plans to go again next year.

BEST TOUR !

Amber Rogers-Tillstone Posted on 25/05/2017

We were 3 generations ( my Mom and son and myself) on the 5 day Highland Explorer tour. It was an absolutely amazing experience and we all wished it lasted a bit longer. Everything was very well organized, we had a great group and a great tour guide with Nicky O. He really made the trip for all of us, with his gift for storytelling along with his vast knowledge of the history of Scotland and the places we saw and his self depricating humor making everyone feel welcome and was alot of fun, alot of laughing. My Mom who has gone on many tours throughout Europe said this was the best tour she had ever been on. The lovely Scottish music Nicky played just added to the whole flavor of the tour especially his song he wrote for us! Thank you for making our holiday an amazing, fun and very memorable one!

What an amazing tour

Sabine Posted on 25/07/2016

I have been to many Rabbies tours during the last few years, but only one of my earlier trips was (only a tiny little bit) better than this current one. Our very young guide Grant did a brilliant, phantastic job as a driver and guide and took care of the group in an unbelievably dedicated way. I was deeply impressed. The group itself was the best I ever had. Wonderful guys, all of them. Scotland is so amazingly beautiful, that I cannot stop spending all my summer holidays there. And I can only recommend everyone to use Rabbies for touring Scotland.

A brilliant time- thank you Rabbies!

Maralyn and Bill Becher Posted on 20/03/2016

We have just returned from this amazing tour- Skye and North West 5 Day Tour and we want to thank Rabbies for the best possible first visit to Scotland that we could have! The coach was so comfortable and the lovely places we visited were a dream come true. The accommodation was perfect for our needs and the small group(6) of us travelling together got on so well. A major reason why this trip exceeded all expectations was our driver and guide, Dan Young. His knowledge of the geography and history of the area was fantastic. He was a brilliant driver and he was so kind and friendly. The whole trip was a delightful experience and we cant wait for the next time!!

Incredible Trip!

Pete Kruppenbacher Posted on 06/09/2015

My wife and I took our 5 year old daughter on the 5 day tour of the highlands with our guide, Alan Oliver. We had such an incredible time! not only was the scenery unbelievable the weather was almost perfect. Additionally, our guide Alan was the best. Simply put, weve been on lots of different tours in lots of different places but Alan was, by far, the best. He was friendly and welcoming and and always had a smile. He was very knowledgeable and could make the history of Scotland come alive. He knew when to play some music and knew when to talk to us. He was able to read the group very well and could make suggestions for us that were very helpful. His sense of humor was also very good. At the end of the 5 days we really felt that we had a friend in Alan and were quite disappointed that the tour was over. If anyone is looking at the 5 day tour of the Highlands I would definitely book it and if Alan is any indication of the kind of guides that Rabbies employs, you absolutely cannot go wrong. The next time we are in Scotland we are definitely booking a Rabbies tour!

Thank You Duncan!

Wendy L Posted on 28/06/2015

On May 13/15 we set off from Edinburgh to tour the Highlands with a group of 9 other people. With the help of our terrific driver and guide Duncan, we quickly bonded and enjoyed our time together exploring the history and gorgeous scenery of the Highland area! The small Rabbies bus, expertly manoeuvred by Duncan allowed us to travel to out of the way places, into small villages and up winding roads to summits with always spectacular views! All the while we were treated with the outmost courtesy by Duncan and constantly entertained and educated by his prodigious knowledge of history and great storytelling ability. We felt very fortunate to have been part of his tour. The tour was definitely a highlight of our 3 week trip to the U.K. and we would happily recommend this company to anyone!

FAQs

Do you offer hotel pickups in the departure cities?

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.

Is there parking close to the departure point?

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.

When should I get to the departure point?

Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.

What happens if I'm late or miss the tour?

If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.

What are your cancellation policies?

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.

What is a guaranteed departure?

It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.

Can I pre-book a specific seat?

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.

Are there toilets on the bus?

Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.

Do you take children on your tours?

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.

How much time do I get off the bus?

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.

Why do you exclude visitor attractions?

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.

Do we need to bring our own lunch?

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.

Should I tip the driver-guide?

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.

What about travel insurance?

We advise you take out travel insurance. You can click here for excellent rates.

I have more questions, who can help me?

If you have any more questions, call us on +44(0)131 226 3133, email tours@rabbies.com, or check out our full FAQs.
