I just took two rabbie’s tours this past May. 1) Loch Ness, Glencoe and the Highlands and 2) West Highlands, Lochs, and castles.
I much preferred the loch ness tour. Not so much for the loch ness boat ride but the scenery was much better. The west highlands tour was just too many lochs for me.
Both tours had great guides. Here is some more info. that I wrote in my trip report about the tours:
Even though it was a long day on the bus (12 hours!!), I preferred the Loch Ness tour, as it got out more into the Highlands and thus was more scenic. But, I could have done without the boat ride. The Lochs tour was just too many lochs for me. Probably why they call it the lochs tour. 😊
Some general notes on the Rabbies tours. They are very well organized. When you get to the bus station, there are 2 people at gates J and K I think it was to check you in. They’ll tell you the name of your driver, who gets there about 15 minutes before the tour starts. They will announce when your driver arrives, and you check in with him/her and get on the bus/van. There is a row of single seats and a row of 2 seats on the bus. I’d try to be one of the first on the bus so you can seats near the front. This will make things easier when getting off and on at all the stops. Free bathrooms at the bus station.
Let me know if you have additional questions. I’ll by happy to try and answer them.
