It was wet and windy but totally atmospheric... so Scotland.
We had lots of places to ourselves. Travelling in Scotland in the winter is not for the faint hearted but I feel we were able to get a true Scottish experience through the commentary of our fantastic guide ... who also provided Scottish music for our journey. Loved being in the countryside. The Isle of Skye is so beautiful.

Great tour which gave us a true Scottish experience of the highlands. Paul G, our guide was excellent, and he made the trip come alive for us. He packed in a lot of things to do in the three days and yet somehow kept it very relaxed and at the sensible pace. He is very articulate in his explanations and related well with a diverse group. Overall a great tour, great guide.

We had a really good experience in 3 day Scottish highlands tour. We visited all the places mentioned in itinerary. Our guide Billy was awesome...he stopped at all the photogenic points and gave ample time to click pictures and sight seeing. Trip was well planned and worth going.

This tour completely blew us away! Nick was a perfect guide. He had so much love for the country and area and told both historical stories, but also wove in legends and tales. We loved that he had his own personal soundtrack that fit different areas we were exploring and he made the whole tour incredibly person. He was friendly and helpful and really brought Scotland and Skye alive for us. We were able to pack in so many gorgeous places and my husband and I were both floored with the immensity of the beauty on Skye. I only wished we'd been able to see the Fairy Glens, but it's hard to pack so much into just one day on the island. We'd recommend this tour to anyone we knew. Absolutely worth every penny.

This tour exceeded our expectations! Our tour guide Ian was so accommodating, telling us tales and folklore of the highlands. Not to mention the history of the areas that we traveled. He even played music on the bus (a mixture of Scottish and other artists) which made the experience truly special! We saw so many sights within those few days! We stayed in the small town of Portree at the Tongadale Hotel. It was a lovely hotel in the middle of town with a restaurant and bar downstairs. It was perfect for our two night stay. We can't say enough about this tour and did not want it to end! We would definitely do it all over again!

This was an amazing experience. Each site exceeded our expectations. James was a fantastic guide — unassuming, informative, fun! Highly recommend this tour.

The tour is well planned yet flexible. Jim is excellent: informative and witty. We covered a lot of ground in the Western Highlands and the Isle of Skye. Just what we wanted.

Andrew from Rabbie's provided us with a first-rate tour. Our day on Skye, in particular, gave me many inspiring and gorgeous views. Andrew and Rabbie's also deserve a shoutout for helping me in my proposal to my girlfriend - now my fiancee. Andrew kept me up to date about what was included and tips on where to propose. Because of this, Rabbie's is now golden to me and I'm glad I traveled with them.

We went on this tour as part of a family vacation to Scotland. Highly recommend this tour. We had a great guide, Stephen, which made it a wonderful time. He was knowledgeable with a delightful sense of humor. The beauty of Isle of Skye is like nowhere else. Stops along the way there and back were great. Stephen was flexible with optional stops that we enjoyed as a group, including a Whisky tasting. Be prepared to do lots of walking to enjoy all the Isle has to offer.The smaller 16 person van allowed us to travel to areas that larger vehicles or buses wouldn't be able to. We lucked out with fabulous weather. Our hotel in Portree was clean and comfortable and breakfasts were included and made to order. Would recommend making dinner reservations in Portree ahead of your stay as restaurants are all very busy.
