I'm more like a Solo Traveller. But, with Rabbie's I took tour package twice to the same destination 'Isle of Sky'. First time, I went to isle of Sky in 2012 and recently in April 2017. Both the times, I left accommodation responsibility with Rabbie's itself. For the recent visit, Rabbie's booked our accomodation with a private B&B managed by... More

My husband and I went on the "Highland Glens, Lochs, and Whisky One Day Tour." It was well-organized. Nick A. was our tour guide and did a fantastic job providing us information regarding all of the areas we traveled to and the overall history of the area. All while driving a van nonetheless! I particularly liked the fact that we... More

I had the pleasure of partaking in the small group tour of Loch Ness, Glencoe, and the Highlands yesterday with Rabbie's tour company. The tour completely exceeded all of my expectations! Our tour guide Arron shared Scottish legends, hilarious jokes, interesting stories, and even played authentic Scottish music along our ride. The tour took us through the beautiful Scottish Highlands,... More

We used Rabbies for the 3 day tour of the Isle of Skye. It was very well organized. They asked questions up front about what kind of accommodations we wanted and they handled booking the B&B. We arrived at the the departure point in Edinburgh at the time they recommended in the email, early enough to grab some food and... More

We did the 12 hr highland tour with Fran and had a great time. Fran was a great storyteller and we enjoyed all the story chapters she shared with us and the delicious Scottish tea cakes as a reward for being on time. We ate at the lock inn in St. Augustine which was very delicious.

Well we (10 people) booked online the Rabbies Edinburgh city tour on 17 April, 2017 and took the bus of 11.30 am. We clearly asked driver to give us the tickets while leaving 3-4 times but he didn't give and he gave Rabbies tour booklet only without writing anything. And when we were boarding on different bus with Linda then... More

We had a quick drink here as it was the meeting point for Rabbie's tour. Meeting at 0730, it was a cold morning, the staff were inside the cafe but would not open the doors, even though many people were waiting "so wrap up if you are booked on an early trip". Only had time for a quick hot drink... More

As a solo traveller, I usually avoid package tours. In the case of the Highlands, however, I decided to leave it in the hands of a tour agency as I know it would be impossible for me to learn about the wonderful scottish folklore and stories without a guide. Hence, i booked the 5-days highland explorer tour with Rabbie's. And... More

We selected Rabbie's for a day trip as recommended by TripAdvisor. They have plenty of choices and you should check yourself which suits you best. Though the staff personally recommended another one, we finally decided to take the LochNess, Glencoe and the Highlands [the longest one of the day tours ie. you will spend most of the time on the...

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
