A great view of Scotland with an amazing guide!
This is an excellent tour and a great experience overall. Our tour guide, Dougie, was a very nice person, extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. While we took in the amazing views, he provided is with interesting historical facts, keeping the day very pleasurable. An unforgettable day and experience.

A fantastic day with our driver Ben, filled with interesting history, funny stories, random Scottish facts, and great places. One of the best day tours we’ve done—way better than driving to all these places yourself.

Loved Stirling Castle . Our guide Steve was very knowledgeable and good fun.
Would have happily missed the lunch stop in Aberfoyle to allow more time at Loch Lomond.
Really enjoyed learning about the art of Whisky making . Would definitely recommend this trip

Delightful tour 7/9/2021
Sep 2021 • Couples
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.

Stevie was Fantastic!
Aug 2021 • Friends
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 memorable rainy day trip!
Aug 2021
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.

An exceptionally well-prepared trip
Aug 2020
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.

Relaxing and interesting
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.

Awesome tour
To begin with, the tour was really well organized - there was enough time to visit Stirling Castle and Glengoyne Distillery. We opted not to enter Stirling Castle and have a walk through Stirling and the graveyard surrounding the castle. Not too much to see here, but nice small town with plenty of opportunities for coffee :) The next stop, after lunch, is at Loch Lomond where you can go for a small walk/hike, the scenery was really breath-takingly beautiful. Glengoyne Distillery is really interesting, since Whiskey is not produced on a large scale here, so you get to see quite some stuff you wouldn't otherwise.
Most of all, though, our tour guide Barney made this tour really special! Barney was very knowledgeable, but also knew how to tell a story and in between his jokes and stories, we had a really memorable trip throughout.
