My daughter and I went on the Rabbie's 4-day Outlander Trail Tour from June 17-20, 2022 and had the absolute time of our lives – we could not recommend this tour more highly. Not only was it the highlight of our month-long tour of the UK (we're Canadians), but it was one of the best travel experiences I've ever had in my life. The rugged yet serene landscape of the Scottish Highlands is beautiful beyond words. As fans of the TV show “Outlander,” we really enjoyed visiting several of the show’s filming locations and hearing the historical stories behind them. It was incredibly moving to visit the Culloden battlefield and visitors’ centre and learn the story of the Jacobite cause, culminating in the last battle fought on British soil.

Most of all, we particularly appreciated our wonderful guide Fraser and cannot say enough good things about him. Fraser taught us so much about Scottish history and culture, even thoughtfully curating Scottish music for us to listen to on our journey. He took the trouble to get to know all 11 of his passengers and created such a wonderful group atmosphere that everyone was sad to leave him at the end of the tour. Whenever we get the opportunity, we will be going back to Scotland so we can go on the Rabbie's Isle of Skye tour, hopefully with Fraser as our guide!

We are visiting Scotland for 3 weeks and booked several tours through Rabbies. We did not know what to expect but we had read many reviews so I was pretty confident that it would be fine. Well, it was more than fine, it was outstanding.

This was a 3 night 4 day tour on a mini bus with a total of 15 people including the driver!

Our guide, Ray MacDonald, aka not quite Jamie, was fantastic. He was knowledgeable, informative, friendly and helpful. He made lots of stops in between the tour highlights which really made the trip even more interesting. He was also funny and cheerful and told many great stories about history, legends and folklore. He also recommended places to eat dinner and where to listen to good music.

Accommodations were booked by the company and were good, not fantastic but clean and well appointed. Most places were B&Bs and the hosts were amazing. Costs were around £100 and included breakfast. We did stay at one place that was considered a hotel and charged £150. I would not recommend it as it was quite overpriced for the amenities it provided.

Everyone on our bus were friendly and we have made some great friends after spending so much time together. We laughed, ate, drank and had loads of fun in 4 days!!

We highly recommend this tour, Rabbies as a tour company and Ray as our guide.

Thanks for such a great trip.

Graham Trotter, our tour leader, made the Outlander Tour so much more than just an Outlander tour. With his great knowledge and love for Scotland, he made us all fall in love with Scotland! Through his stories and carefully selected music to accompany his stories, we learned about the history of Scotland and about the passion and resilience of the Highlanders. We are all in agreement that Graham is the most professional and knowledgeable tour guide we ever had! I can highly recommend Rabbi Tours and if you can, ask for Graham to be your tour guide. We intend returning to Scotland as soon as we can to do the Isle of Skye Tour with Graham.

I can honestly say our Outlander Adventure with Graham T was a life highlight. From the minute we set off from Edinburgh to the theme tune (cheers going up at the back of the bus), we knew we would have a wonderful time, but not that it would be so special. We had a fantastic group, and we’re so lucky to have the absolute legend Graham T as our driver/guide. We saw essential Outlander sights, but also stopped to take in much of the breathtaking beauty of the Highlands. There was the exact right amount of sightseeing, activities, music, stories - and you were never without a handily placed public loo (very important!). The music and stories Graham entertained us with on the drive kept us engaged and every drive flew by. The only downside is the melancholia of having to say goodbye, but we will be back. Ten out of ten from us x

We have just come back from having the most amazing time on the 4-day Outlander tour with Mac, our tour guide. To start with, our bus was wonderfully comfy, clean and provided an excellent ‘home’ as we travelled around the Highlands. From the minute we set off from Edinburgh, Mac began sharing his specialist knowledge of Scotland, including tales, history of the Jacobites and legendary Scottish figures and traditional songs which continued throughout the four days and brought everything to life. This made the trip extra special for us, to have such a Highland specialist leading us through our tour. Every location was spectacular and as well as seeing all the Outlander locations, we saw so much more of the Highlands along the way. A real highlight for us was the bag pipes which Mac played to enhance different experiences and locations. Whether you’re an outlander fan or have never heard of it, this tour is an absolutely amazing way to experience beautiful Scotland and to learn more than you ever thought you could about its history. Anything you see in a picture is blown out of the window when you see it in person. We didn’t want it to end and felt quite emotional when it did. We are already exploring which Rabbies tour to book for Winter.

This tour was nothing short of outstanding and exceeded all expectations. Our Tour Guide Ray, enhanced the tour experience immensely with his knowledge, sense of humour and his ability to bring the group together. My friend and I both felt that Ray kept the group fully engaged throughout. There were surprise stops along the way matched with relevant music and funny stories. At no point did the tour take a dip so we were all fully engaged from start to finish.

I couldn't recommend this tour (and Ray 😀) highly enough.

This is an excellent tour! Our driver/guide ,Willie, was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot even though this was our 7th visit to Scotland. The group was super fun and we felt like a group of friends/and family by the end of 4 days! Really covered the whole Outlander sights and scenes. It was great as an Outlander (tv series) fan to find like minded fans to chat with! Really a great tour.
Unbeatable. Only down side was our hotel in Inverness was not very good. Really only a "One-star" so I suggest that a different hotel in Inverness be contracted.
But even with that it was awesome.

The Outlander Rabbie's 4-day tour was absolutely fantastic. Our tour guide, Willie, was so engaging, kind, and knowledgeable. Not only did we see significant sites, it felt like he took us to places that were off the beaten path. The highlands were beautiful, the towns cute, the food was wonderful, and everyone we met was so genuine and friendly. I would definitely recommend Rabbie's and Willie as a guide!

The tour itinerary was good, but our Tour Guide, Ross, greatly enhanced the experience with his smart appearance, polite manners, very deep knowledge of the age when Outlander was set and the Jacobite situation. As an Englishman, I found Ross's views, from a Scottish perspective, most thought provoking and illuminating.
However, the trip was really let down by the Rabbies's Accommodation department, who we tried to talk to about problem's we were experiencing, but they never bothered to respond to Ross's phone calls on our behalf. Then part way through the tour, we accidentally came across the Manager of Rabbies Accommodation Department, Suu, who it turned out acted as a driver/tour guide for part of the week (or when it suited her!?). When I tried to talk to her about the problems that we were having with the accommodation, she just brushed me of in a very brusque and rude manner and walked away. The fact that Rabbies Accommodation Department had a part time "manager" could explain why it was not really that good. But then as Suu seemed to have no pride in the way she dressed, showed that she had little respect for herself, her employers, her co-workers and the clients of Rabbies, who were paying her salary. I have never had any cause to give a critical review of any escorted tour holiday that I have been on before, but this situation really upset me and left a sour taste after what was otherwise a nice holiday.

Suu is our Accommodation Manager but having started her Rabbie's Career as a driver-guide she is scheduled to lead a couple of tours a year. There is obviously an official rota for this and we ensure her team are prepared, supported and equipped to deal with any issues that arise during these rare, short absences. In this particular situation, you did not receive a response from our accommodation team because there was no message passed to them that you needed assistance. This is a valid complaint in itself but has nothing to do with our accommodation team nor the way they are managed. Each of our guides must take responsibility for their own tour group and ensure that messages are relayed so that appropriate assistance can be provided. We regret that correct procedures were not followed here and that our accommodation team therefore did not receive the message about your concerns and had no opportunity to offer assistance. We can understand why you confronted Suu in these circumstances but you did so when she was out on a site visit with her own tour group and without the resources to assist you. She was not in a position to help and was absolutely right to refer you back to your own guide for assistance. Respectful communication is obviously important and we do apologise that you felt Suu was rude and dismissive. There were numerous faults and areas for improvement that we have addressed with you directly but to suggest that someone has no pride or respect for themselves or others based on their choice of clothing (a casual kilt in this case), is completely inappropriate - what an awful thing to say. This amounts to a personal attack and we strongly feel that its wrong to judge someones character or ability based on their appearance. We are pleased that you enjoyed the tour and appreciate the feedback that you have shared separately about your accommodation. Kind Regards, Aimee

My husband and I absolutely loved our 4 day Outlander Tour with guide, Ross MacArthur! He did a wonderful job incorporating the Outlander Books, television series, and accompanying history into an interesting, enjoyable experience! Ross is not only very knowledgeable about the subject matter but he also is kind and has a great sense of humor that made the four days fly by! He went out of his way to make sure that we enjoyed ourselves and even pointed out additional Outlander sites and interest items that we all loved that weren’t advertised in the tour description. I’m the big Outlander fan, my husband was making me happy by going on this tour but he ended up loving it as much as I did! We highly recommend Ross as a guide and this Outlander Tour! 😃
