It was a cold day in November when Alistair drove up to greet us, and take care of us for the day. We signed up for the "Outlander tour" and he adroitly assessed our varying levels of enthusiasm for the sci-fi historical adventure soap opera.
and so we launched on a historical tour of royalty, war, clans, castles, and TV production locations.
As you can read from the other reviews, all the guides are great. Safe, courteous, considerate, funny, and attentive to the locations of rest rooms. We felt his enthusiasm for his discourse.
Alastair (not sure how he spells it) added to that with a wonderful map session to help us plan the rest of our trip. This was clearly exceeding expectations.
Did I mention how cold it was (and I live in New England!)?

We so enjoyed our tour experience with Rabbie’s. Our tour guide Ben was excellent. One of the best tour guides I’ve ever had, really made the experience special. Ben filled the tour with musings on history, humor, and personal experience. He showed us the sights along with playing us classic songs from the country of Scotland. It was a classic scotland rainy and windy day but we were warm and cozy in our bus in between stops. All Covid precautions that were noted on the site were in place to keep us feeling safe and responsible with our decision to do a full day tour. Sterling castle, loch lomand, and Glengoyne whisky tour were all worth the trip. I highly recommend this day tour. Cheers.

Such a wonderful tour, our tour guide Steve was amazing at keeping us entertained and informed on the scenery around us, which was beautiful by the way. A many variety of sights and opertunities to take photos of your surroundings. The distillery at the end is also very interesting, as you walk through the process of how they make the whiskey and obviously at the end of the tour is the whiskey tasting, very enjoyable and a great day out.

Though it was raining cats and dogs, the trip was fantastic. We started our day with a visit to the Sterling Castle, where we had an extra ordinary view of the city and historic information about the castle. A quick yet scenic tour of the Loch Lomond became more pleasant with a drizzle. Glengoyne Distillery visit was very informative, though I could not taste the whiskey due to health issues, but understanding the whiskey manufacturing process was amazing.
Last but not the least our tour guide from Rabbies Tours "Stevie" made it more enjoyable with his Glaswegian accent and Scottish Humor. A big thank to you Pal, you made our day very special.

My friend and I (in our twenties) wanted to see a little more of Scotland before I head home to the states. We were on a Rabbie’s tour last year which was hands down the BEST day I’ve had in Scotland yet so we wanted to take another tour through Rabbie’s. We’re so happy we did!! Stevie was our tour guide for this trip and he was absolutely fantastic. He had so many facts to share (which I love) and stopped to let us get a picture of some Highland cows (which I also love). We had plenty of time to enjoy each of the stops. I’m not a fan of whiskey but my friend and I did the whiskey tour for the fun of it and it really was an enjoyable time. We also toured the castle. The weather was very rainy but that didn’t stop us from having an awesome day! I highly recommend this tour if you want to see a lot of Scotland in a short amount of time. You learn about the culture/country from knowledgeable and friendly guides who love what they do. Thanks very much Stevie!

A very well organized trip, a beautiful route and a professional guide who gave us a lot of knowledge about Scotland. It traveled safely as the minibus was exceptionally clean and well prepared for the trip in terms of disinfection, which is very important to me now. A wonderful trip that I can recommend to others who want to experience the beauty of Scotland.

Got picked up this morning by the lovely Stevie. It was thick fog this morning so we didnt see much on the drive to Stirling castle. We arrived around 9.30 and had 2 hours so we made the most of the tour guide that took about an hour. That was really interesting and then went exploring on our own before heading back to the minibus. We drove the scenic route round winding lanes through lovely scenery and stopped off at Aberfoyle for some lunch. Then to Balmaha for some gorgeous photos round Loch Lomond then finally on to Glengoyne Distillery. I dont actually drink but tried the 2 whiskys they offered and they were both really nice. We were taken round the distillery by Gordon who was very knowledgeable and found the tour really interesting. This took about an hour and we finished off in the shop. Had a thoroughly enjoyable day. Thanx to Stevie for the knowledge, chats, laughs and personally showing us the best photo taking locations. Would totally recommend.

Had a fantastic day on the tour. It was out first time in Glasgow and we would recommend doing this to anyone. Our tour guide was Bobby, who was brilliant all day from start to finish. He made it fun but also very interesting at the same time.
