Scotland Highland Tour Bus

We are excited about taking one of the highland tours recommended by Rick Steves in his Great Britain book. Can anyone advise us on the logistics of bathroom breaks? Is there a loo on the bus or do they stop frequently for breaks? Thanks for any info. We just got weak bladders! Lol

I don't know what companies Rick Steves recommends. I can tell you from experience that Rabbie's uses 16 person tour vans. Rabbie's stops about every 2 hours, so bathroom breaks is not much of an issue. No potty on the bus. If you had a dire emergency - the drivers are quite friendly and probably would not mind "bailing you out" just as long as it is a rare circumstance.

I've taken a 1-day trip and a 5-day trip with Rabbies. I enjoyed each. The drivers are very friendly and helpful. If you need a bathroom break, just let them know. I also took a 1-day trip with Heart of Scotland in '08 and had a great day. I've seen Timberbush recommended by a traveler I know is very knowledgeable. You can compare the itineraries.
