Reviews of this Highlands and Loch Ness Tour

Great tour company! - If you're looking for a tour company while in Edinburgh, choose Rabbie's Trail Burners! We went on 2 tours with Rabbie's - the Loch Ness Monster tour and the Loch Lomond/Stirling Castle tour. Our first tour guide, Ali (short for Alisdair) is a walking/talking history book of Scotland! He knew so much about Scotland, welcomed all questions, and was very animated. Though this tour is nearly 12 hours long, he made the day very amusing and entertaining. Our second tour guide, Bryan (I believe), was equally informative and entertaining. Overall, Rabbie's really is a great company. Their staff are professional, helpful, and very friendly! Great Day of Touring - We took the Loch Ness, Glencoe, and Highlands Tour with Eddie as out tour guide and driver. He was wonderful and was full of great stories and gave the history and facts along the way--we learned a lot & enjoyed the entertainment along the way. Our small group was quiet and attentive and happy to be there despite the fact that we were of all ages and from many countries. We stopped for a short hike toward the end of the trip and it was enchanting with a rocky trail and a waterfall--lovely. The trip was one of the highlights of our vacation. We highly recommend Rabbie's. I took the one day Loch Ness tour today, June 5, 2009 as a single senior traveler. Over all this is a very willing and good tour company, however, I took the front left single seat and it was quite small, cramped and airline like. Very little room for ones legs and I'm 5'7''. This tour of Loch Ness only stopped in the town of Fort Augustus where there is little to do or see and to see the Loch itself one must take an additional boat trip. Since so much ground and time (over 10 hours) is covered you better have, "Buns of Steel", for the journey. As with all tours, the guide made the trip and even with an on-coming cold, remained cheerful and very informative. What ever they pay these people isn't far enough. Loch Lomond & Stirling castle day trip - ups & downs - Upside: Driver who's also the tour guide is very informative regarding battle stories of Scotland. Visited beautiful places - loch Lomond especially guide led us on a 50 mins trek beside the lake- beware although mentioned as a 'walk' it is trekking. if you do not mind burning a few calories, it's enjoyable. Drive through' highlands. Downs: bit too much talking & story - got bit bored towards the end and desperately wanted some quite time while travelling. guide got bit carried away with his passion for independent Scotland / current freedom movement. 5 out of 9 hours was spend in the bus travelling.
