    We had a blast with our tour guide Jim S.! Not only was he very knowledgeable, but he also was very funny and went above and beyond during this tour. He explained a lot of facts, imparted quite a few anecdotes with lots of humor, was very graceful and patient and was able to make a small group bus full of strangers all to sing one by one their own national anthem. We most definitely had a blast on this Rabbie's Tour and recommend to anyone who wants to visit Loch Lomond, the Kelpies or Stirling castle to just sign up on this. We will go back to this company to visit more of Scotland next time we go there again!

    A great tour led by Andy. Exceptional guide. A great way to see the Kelpies, Loch Lomond, and Stirling Castle in 1 day. The small tour group thru Rabbies is highly recommended.

    I, my wife and 2 friends arranged this trip in order to visit some of the countryside surrounding Edinburgh (we were attending the "Fringe").
    The itinerary and the logistics fitted the requirement and Henry was a good guide/driver - knowledgeable and good interpersonal skills - and a credit to Rabbie's Tours.

    Jim was a great driver and guide! Lots to see but not overwhelming. A very relaxing tour and highly recommended to anyone wanting to get a quick lay of the land.

    The tour was excellent. Our guide Jeff was not only personable, but also invested in giving us the best time possible, going so far as to veer off the beaten path to allow us awhile in the lowlands of the highlands with lunch along a loch in a charming cafe, without sacrificing time in the advertised sites. He is extremely knowledgeable, has a sense of time and place, encouraged questions, is a superb driver and when we all were tired at the close of the day provided Scots music to sooth the soul.

    This tour was very interesting, first we were taken to the big double statue of the two horses, then to Loch Lomond, enough time for lunch, then we proceeded to the castle which is my real point of interest since I'm following Mary, Queen of Scotts. Our driver and tour guide Gavin is really very nice and informative.

    Our tour director Graham was knowledgeable and funny. The tour encompassed the spots that were advertised and we were satisfied with what we saw. We also felt very safe with Graham’s driving. He also had some suggestions about buying a clan map and when to look out of the window for a particularly good view. He was also quite friendly in taking a picture of my husband and me at the Kelpies. Graham was excellent when he spoke, but we had a member of the tour who took over some of the commentary by rambling on about the American Civil War. I am not sure how a tour leader shuts down such a person, but the tour would have been more enjoyable if he had.All around a good experience and I would recommend it to others.

    The tour was interesting and the tour guide was wonderful. There was a walking tour around the Loch that was quite slippery and probably wasn't necessary-- next time I wouldn't do that portion. The castle was great.

    We planned a manageable day trip to Loch Lomond and Stirling castle, this being one of the shorter trips. The first stop at the Kelpies was brilliant. Mahri was a lively guide and gave us a good introduction to the importance of Stirling Castle as the key stronghold of the Scottish Kingdom. Impressive castle and enough time to look around. Well planned day with enough stops to break up the bus trip into comfortable portions.

    The Giant Horses don't belong on this tour. People who want history, don't care about these statues. The day was not great, so we spent almost no time at Loch Lomond which was a great disappointment. We had tickets for Sterling Castle so got to do the tour inside. That was wonderful. Loved Mike's stories during the drive--he is very knowledgeable and entertaining.
