This was an absolutely fantastic trip. The minibus was clean and very comfy, with USB ports for every seat so you could charge your devices easily (which is great as with the stunning scenery, I wanted to take thousands of photos so my phone drained quickly). Our guide, Andy, provided fascinating commentary in Jacobite history, folk takes and bits of information about the places we were seeing. He made everything so much more interesting! We got to see not only the main landmarks but lots of lovely places off the beaten path that we had entirely to ourselves. We saw gorgeous wildlife - seals, herons, even sea eagles! Skye was just phenomenal. Every time you thought it couldn't get more astoundingly beautiful, you turned a corner and it managed it! The B&Bs Rabbies booked for us were great - really lovely and welcoming. We want to do the outer Hebrides with Rabbies next year, but only if we can have Andy again!!

This trip is one of the best things I've ever done. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking and the weather was incredible, which really helped. The bus was clean and comfortable and quite small, which meant that we could go off the beaten track, as we often did. The itinerary was great, we stopped a number of times to see things, and it was fluid which meant that we could do things that the group wanted to do. Our tour guide Andy was amazing. He was friendly and knowledgeable and I loved the stories and history that he told us about. I learned more about Scottish history in those 4 days than I'd ever known before! I'd highly recommend this trip.

A fabulous experience for 4 days and we never wanted this to end. Jodie was an amazing guide, friend and a great story teller. Through history and humour, we sailed past Isle of Skye and West Highlands as 4 days were fun, entertaining, social, informative and a treat for our eyes. I recommend Jodie highly and would love to have her with us on every tour that I plan to book with Rabbies. Thank you for making this such a beautiful experience for all of us. Till next time, take care.

If you want to have worry-free 3N/4D tour in West Highland and Isle of Skye, I definitely recommend this trip for you. The bus is very comfortable, followed COVID
protocols. Our lovely tour guide, Andy, is obviously knowledgeable and smart. He loves to share stories and myths of Scotland, so you definitely won’t get bored during the long drive. He looks so enthusiastic during the entire trip, and is very kind. Can’t complain. They also arranged the accomodation(fee is exluded of the tour) for us. The B&B for the entire 3N tour were very cozy and clean.
The locations are breathtaking, although the weather sometimes can affect the tour, Andy made sure the stops are safe for us.

Highly recommend.

We did this 4 day tour with Andy and had a great time. He was a great guide and gave us lots of information and history about the places we visited along the way. The itinerary was somewhat flexible depending on what the group wanted to do, which was also really nice. I would definitely recommend.

The tour is only as good as the guide! I wanted to show my girlfriend the beautiful Scottish Highlands without the stress of driving myself. As a local tour operator myself, I am also very interested in history, culture and of course storytelling. I chose Rabbie's Tours because I'd heard that they were the greatest tour operator in Scotland so expectations were already pretty high for their 4 day Isle of Skye and West Highlands Tour. But I must admit Rabbie's Tours went far and beyond my expectations. Our driver Andy was friendly, adaptable and amazing at telling stories. It really made me appreciate the Highlands even more knowing all of the stories both historical and mythological. He completely adapted the tour to our group's need and also showcased his favourite aspects of the Isle of Skye. I want to thank Andy personally for providing my girlfriend and I with such a magical and memorable experience of Scotland. The fact that the weather was non-stop beautiful and full of sunshine really was the icing on the cake!

I cannot pick one experience as it was an amazing experience from start to finish. Our group of 4 couples and 4 singles were strangers on day 1, were friends by day 2. Our tour guide Andy - lovely laid back Andy with his folk stories along the way was the icing on the cake. I was so impressed and will definitely 'Haste ye back' next year.

This 4-day tour is wonderful. The scenery and historic locations are amazing but Gav, our guide, was the one who really made the difference and changed a scenic bus trip into an adventure. He had the knowledge and passion for the landscape and history to fine-tune the tour according to weather, and the interests and abilities of the group. Every day was a joy and we will definitely be back for more.

One word to sum it all up - INCREDIBLE! Me and my boyfriend travelled with a group of 5 other people, and our tour guide, Gavin William Harrison. It’s a very well thought tour with really amazing destinations included, and Gavin made it all the more personalised for all of us. Would highly highly recommend this to anyone wanting to travel to the Highlands and the Isle of Skye!

Would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone looking to get a taste of the gorgeous, dramatic scenery of the highlands and Isle of Skye. Also, Rabbie's, please put the maps back in the new buses!
