    Arran is a hidden gem among the many Scotland tours. You simply cannot go wrong with this tour. The small group size lends itself to pleasant travel in a fun setting. The tour itinerary, beginning in Ayrshire and then taking the ferry to Arran, is full, but never rushed. The pace is just right. Accommodation options on Arran are very good too. Our guide was personable and very knowledgeable and attuned to each of his passengers as individuals. I highly recommend the tour for anyone visiting Scotland!

    This was my second trip with Rabbies, and it did not disappoint! Pick up was easy and the pace of the day was fantastic. Out guide was an impeccable driver. As well as being a gifted story-teller, he gave eloquent and interesting histories of everything along the way. The bus was very comfortable and clean, and the stops were long enough to enjoy a relaxed pace, never rushed. The Robert Burns sites were lovely, and the walk to the Brig O'Doon were easy and interesting. The ferry ride to Arran was brisk and breezy, and enjoyed while having a coffee and making new friends from our bus. The rooms were organized in advance, and we were dropped off at our stays and placed in the hands of our wonderful hostess, Anne. who made sure we had a great breakfast each day, including Italian coffee (as was my preference, but yours may be tea) and even a Haggis tasting the second morning! Arran is indeed Scotland in miniature, and we enjoyed a wonderful whiskey tasting, a great visit to Culzean and Inverary Castles and a view of the highlands of the Isle. Pete delivered a concise and spot on history of the clans of the region, making the sites we saw even more interesting. When you travel with Rabbies, you are instantly made to feel at ease and a part of a family. The time goes so quickly that my only regret is not taking a longer tour! Rabbies is solid value for money, but truly food for the explorer at heart!

    Rabbis da muy,buen servicio, el problema es que cobra el doble por hacer de intermediario y da informacion equivocada al incluir en el precio las comidas que rabbis no incluie nunca en sus tours

    I was traveling alone and was unsure about filling the time. I decided to book the Rabbies tour due to the smaller group size and that they don't cancel the trips for lower attendance. It was the best decision I made for my travels in Scotland. Pete was an amazing guide; an awesome story teller, friendly and so informative. Overall I had a wonderful experience with this tour!
