What people are saying about Perth and Kinross

This tour is definitely recommended. We have seen a lot. We were allowed to go with Tim. Very sympathetic and nice driver. We learned a lot about Scotland's past. He told nicely and with the necessary humor. He also gave us tips on what else we could do this week. It is really aimed at the whiskey distillery. We stayed there for about 2 hours. At the waterfalls about 20/30 min. So if you want purely for the waterfalls, I would recommend another tour. We (my daughter and I) initially did not book the tasting (because we really went for the waterfalls ☺️) but in the end there decided to do it anyway otherwise you will be waiting there for 2 hours. In the end it was fun to be a part of. The Whiskey gentleman was very passionate about his craft and that made the tour a lot of fun. We were also with a nice group.

Louise was our tour guide and she was absolutely delightful! She has a great sense of humor and is full of fun little facts. She also played great music that wasn’t overpowered by bagpipes (although she played some). She is just so kind and a positive woman. She truly made our trip that more enjoyable and my mom just loved her!

Grant was a friendly, lowkey guy who knew his stuff! Great day out overall, lots of sights, stayed on schedule and took us to some of the most beautiful sights (and delicious whisky) in Scotland. I highly recommend this tour and any other from Rabbie's when you plan your trip.

Stephen is a true professional as a guide and driver. He showed above expected assistance to my wife on and off the bus. He made great recommendations on what each location provided. Would use him again without hesitation.

Circuit among sumptuous landscapes, enough time during the stops Passionate guides, a pleasant atmosphere throughout the trip.
