Our 3 day trip to Isle of Skye on a Rabbie mini-bus was very enjoyable and comfortable. The scenery was beautiful and our bus driver Allan was fantastic! He was funny, informative and knew when to talk and when to play music. We enjoyed the hiking so much that it would have been great to add more time for hiking. Great trip overall and met some nice people!

George was a fantastic driver. Very knowledgeable and friendly. He worked with me on several occasions to help make this trip successful after I had some personal travel setbacks. He answered every question we asked and provided us with several recommendations and information about the stops we made. The hotel I stayed at was better than its 3 star rating. I had a double bed to myself for the two days I was there and slept easily. The room and bathroom were cleaner than I expected and the breakfast was a decent meal. The restaurant and pub were also very good and I highly recommend getting their Mac & Cheese or any of their several vegan/vegetarian options. Overall the trip was great but because I went in the winter months and a lot of the attractions were unreachable, the price for the trip was a little much but I wouldn’t say that would discourage me from highly recommending this tour to anyone looking for a trip around Western Scotland.

Our tour was led by Ian who provided insightful commentary about the history, landscape, culture and humor of Scotland. Ian strove to meet the requests of all participants and demonstrated great flexibility when weather prevented some planned visits. In one instance, due to inclement weather, he was able to secure a whisky tasting to replace a visit to an outdoor area we were all impressed and satisfied. All three members of our family were thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the tour and the clear effort to make this a memorable part of our visit to Scotland.

If you travel to Scotland, you MUST visit the Isle of Skye...and what better way to do this than with a private tour guide who takes care of all the details!!! We booked through Viator, which booked us with Rabbis. Our guide was John....very knowledgeable, professional, music connoisseur, and all around witty! My husband and I are already planning to tour Ireland next year and we will definitely be booking this through Viator and Rabbis. We literally showed up at the bus on day 1 and did not have to worry about ANYTHING...John took care of all the details. The money paid is very very very much worth the it!!! I am a very experienced global traveler and have high expectations....my expectations were definitely met. My husband and I will be going back to Scotland as well...please go to the Isle of Skye...you will remember the landscape views for the rest of your life.

This tour was awesome! There is so much packed into 3 days, it's hard to even pick a favorite: castles, sea cliffs, whisky tasting, more! Even with wind and rain for two of the days, we still had a great time. The tour guide/driver, Grant, was fantastic and was very engaging with us in pointing out various things we passed, and providing us with history of the area. He also threw in a few jokes. Overall, the entire tour was amazing and I would do it again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to anyone looking to explore Scotland.
