Lovely trip Well-worth the really long day See so.much in such a short time Liam was excellent 👏 👌 thanks so much very knowledgeable and interesting


Although of the extremely windy day we really had a wonderful time in this trip thanks to our guide James, who did everything possible to make this trip special, all the stops and stories he told us along the way and a very delicious lunch stop!


The tour was hosted by Rabies on behalf of viator. It was a mind boggling and refreshing tour. Our tour coordinator, Alec was master of the place and highlly experienced in driving. We will visit and come again and meet you Alec!! Highly recommended 1-day tour


We had a wonderful day guided and driven expertly by Amy, who had a huge and wide-ranging knowledge of the area which she shared beautifully. She managed to tell us about the history, flora and fauna of the areas we were passing through while driving safely and courteously, and even shared a few pieces of music which perfectly complemented the stories and places. This part of the world is just stunning, and Amy was an excellent guide.


This Rabbies tour was brilliant. Left on time, no unnecessary loo/coffee breaks and a talented driver/guide. Stunning scenery, evocative commentary and some live music on the side. Do a tour with Duncan, he's awesome.


Fabulous Tour Gregor very enthusiastic Plenty of stopping places Shot 200 photos Weather & Views out of this world


Seeing the Highlands, lochs and Eileen Donan castle. The guide was very informatitive and took us to many unknown places, trip was slightly spoilt by my friend having a temper tantrum, she has a mental issue and can't help shouting so everyone on the bus is unwillingy involved. Lovely day otherwise. Helen


We wanted to see the Highlands whilst on a whirlwind tour of Inverness. We chose this tour for the opportunity to get up ‘close’ to the mountains…and it didn’t disappoint! Our driver-guide, Liam, was wonderful: friendly, chatty, knowledgeable and super helpful. There were LOADS of stops for photos between the designated sight-seeing spots. We had lunch at a great little walled garden in Applecross and thoroughly enjoyed the day from (early) start to its finish in the evening. The coach was clean and comfortable and fellow travellers were all lovely. Fantastic value for money and a day we’ll remember!


The views were breath-taking, our guide was wonderful and very informative. I highly recommend this tour!


The tour guide was tremendous, I can say is a legend. All the viewpoint was absolutely stunning and we stick to schedule but we have enough time to pop off form the bus to take photo and rest. What a prefect tour.
