Wonderful weather beaten trip to Magical Mull
Sep 2021
Just home from a fantastic trip to Mull, Iona, Staffa and the highlands of Scotland. This was my first time to Mull and Iona and it did not disappoint. I wanted to do this trip to let me get a taste of Mull and it has made me want to go back for more. The weather was not kind and thankfully the whole group came prepared so it meant that Liam our guide was able to follow his plans and show us the highlights. We had fun little ferry hops along with a trip out to see Fingals cave on Staffa.

Hats off to Liam who was able to share his personal stories and places on Mull, being a local lad. This made it feel like a very special trip.

Mull and Iona was fabulous and if you ever want to dip into a taster of these islands, then this is the way to do it.

Great Way to see Mull and the Highlands
Jul 2021
I've travelled around Scotland with Rabbie's before so when I knew I was coming back here they were really my only choice because I knew they'd make sure I saw everything that needed to be seen and that I'd have an enjoyable trip - both of these things were true.

Our guide, Paul, is a resident on Mull and it showed - you could see that he loved the island and was extremely knowledgeable about it and the other places we visited. He was also very aware of current restrictions and made sure we were never anywhere too crowded and gave us great advice on where we might need to book to get food etc. on each day. He created a great friendly and relaxed atmosphere on the bus and helped us have many an adventure by showing us places we probably would have missed.

The trip itself was fantastic - I love Glencoe so I'm always happy to go through there, I've been through there twice before (with Rabbie's) but each time I get a different viewpoint. Mull is a beautiful island with lots to see - and with Rabbie's you get to see all of it. I highly recommend the trip out to Staffa from Iona - even someone who's afraid of heights like myself was able to get out to Fingal's Cave and then out along the island to see the puffins.

I made so many wonderful memories on this trip - I highly recommend it.

Wonderful time
A friend and I went on this tour with James and six other people. We had a wonderful time and experienced one day of wild weather while on the ferry from Mull to Iona. It was a blast ! The scenery and history behind the area was great! We will definitely take another tour in the future. Thanks James !

Excellent Tour
Oct 2019
A brilliant four day tour. Due to Rabbie’s guarantee only my husband and I were on this tour! We couldn’t believe Rabbies would honour the booking, but were delighted they did. Too many highlights to list here but such a varied an interesting tour. Our tour guide Michael made what could have been a strange experience really enjoyable. He was knowledgeable, friendly and committed to ensuring our needs were fully catered for. In fact, we cannot praise Michael enough for making this trip so perfect. Would definitely recommend both this tour and Rabbies to others.

We never want to disappoint our customers, so we guarantee never to cancel due to low passenger numbers. You book - you go (as long as you still want to!) It's great to hear that Michael looked after you and helped make this such a great tour. Many thanks, Aimee

We had a fabulous guide in James. Very knowledgeable in history, great sense of humor as well.
Sites on Mull were fabulous. Our day on Iona was unique as we toured the infamous abbey. There was a nice balance between keeping to the van/travel schedule and having time on our own to explore the areas we were in.
Weather is a big predictor and consideration for this type of tour. We chanced it and were very satisfied. A little rain did not deter us. The rainbows are worth waiting for...and we had 2 different glorious ones!

Outstanding trip!
Aug 2019 • Friends
My mother and I just got back from a phenomenal trip to Mull and Iona. Our guide was Liam and he was so knowledgeable, friendly, fun and down to earth. We loved the stories he told and how he really brought everything to life. I've been on a few Rabbie's tours now and thoroughly enjoyed them all, but this was especially special as I have a family connection to Tobermory and I felt like Liam really respected that. I would not hesitate to recommend this company as they are responsible and you certainly get your money's worth. Liam was really passionate about the area and Scotland in general and it really helps paint a good picture of past and present. Great tour, great guide and great company. Thanks so much for a memorable trip!

Our trip in July was incredible. Jamie was a perfect guide. Lots of info as we drove, great music selection and an endless stream of stories and legends. We kept to schedule, but never once felt rushed. I can't wait to go back next summer!! Oh, we saw nesting puffins!!

3 night/4 day trip to see Mull and Iona
Jun 2019 • Solo
I really dislike organized trips normally. But after doing WHW, was limited in time and decided to sign on, since this travel company came highly recommended.

I had a wonderful time. The small group of folks who had signed in were friendly and easygoing. Ross really set the tone and was so upbeat and flexible. He regaled us with history of the place and truly made this trip great. He even got the 🌞 (Sun) to show up in the places we drove to or visited. The last day, we were rerouted 100’s of miles due to an accident, he had such a good attitude eventhough the day turned out to be really long.

I will definitely use Rabbies again for sure.

Do this tour!!! Magnificent, just magnificent!
Jun 2019 • Friends
We were a group of 10, plus our driver, Liam, and it was great! I’m not a fan of organized outings, but this was brilliant! Liam, our guide, was so informative, so patient, so accommodating and a real joy! The itinerary wasn’t rushed, it was interesting and there’s no bad views on this tour! Our group was fun and from all corners of the globe. I’m planning on doing another tour with Rabbie’s this week from Edinburgh and next year when I come back to Scotland.

Stunning Scenery & Puffins!
May 2019 • Solo
This was my second Rabbie's tour and this one included traveling through the highlands, seeing Glencoe and arriving for a 3-night stay in Tobermory on the beautiful Isle of Mull. The highlight was taking a ferry to Iona with plenty of time to walk around and see the Abbey and the Shrine of St. Columba before what turned out to be a wild boat trip to Staffa. The sea was a bit restless, but all made it ashore see the adorable puffins or the magnificent Fingal's Cave. Another favorite was Calgary Beach with its lovely white sands. Our driver/guide was Paul and he did an excellent job. Thank you, Rabbie's, for an amazing, unforgettable experience!
