- ‘The Rabbie’s tour was by far the highlight of our trip – I’m very glad you suggested the small group tour approach. Our tour guide (Paul) was absolutely outstanding. He intermixed history, music, and folklore to provide context that made each stop extra special.’

- I just returned from a great 4 day trip to Scotland! Mack was our guide and was amazing! I've been a travel agent for 25 years and have travelled a lot and have never had a guide this great! I'm sure all guides at Rabbie's are fantastic but Mack spoiled us and was extra special!
His knowledge of Scotland along with the love he has for his country just made it all that much better! AND he sings and tells great stories!
I will use this company again for my clients without a doubt!

- It was a thoroughly enjoyable trip!
A few things were unexpected – near perfect weather – we had only 2 (1/2 days) of rain – just enough to see the wild flow of the rivers & waterfalls – nice. Then there was this driver/guide "Suu". Where did you find her? I’m in the business of selling tours,. hiring guides (as is Antal) so we really enjoyed watching her handle various situations & personalities in the group, on the road, etc. It was the first time we ever took a bus tour for more than a day trip. It's always good to get out & see what it’s really like "in the field". Her passion for Scotland & energy to ensure our safety, fun & comfort was something that will not soon be forgotten. She truly is a star. Wish we had someone like her for USA

I was the academic leader on a four-week history study tour through the Northern and Western Isles of Scotland in September 2013. I was working through a UK agent who subcontracted the final sections of the tour to Rabbie's. I meant to be in touch much sooner to express my thanks and appreciation to Rabbie's as a company and to our two drivers, Paul and then Karen, in particular. Each in their unique way contributed so much to our group’s enjoyment of our study tour. They were a credit to the company and certainly amongst our group there was a positive request to use Rabbie's when possible for future tours. Paul’s wealth of tales, knowledge of the islands such as Skye, sense of humour and "wee detours" are legendary – and his Scottish pride and yet patience with a Sassenach tour leader were much appreciated! Karen, too, endeared herself to the group and the fact she had spent time working in New Zealand also gave her a special rapport with members of the group. Our day together on the Isle of Arran was especially memorable. On Sunday I am giving a public talk on "Highlights of the Hebrides" and Rabbie’s will get a special mention.
