Robin Worsnop started our tour company in 1993.
All he had was an old sherpa van and a few people telling him it would never work.
These days, Robin likes to think he started the company because he ‘saw a gap in the market’, ‘wanted to create an ethical way to travel’, and ‘knew what independent travellers wanted’.
But we know the truth.
He simply wanted to spend his time travelling around gorgeous places, discovering his homeland, and enjoying a dram with friendly faces from around the globe.
And he might have carried on doing this forever.
But there was a gap in the market; he had created an ethical way to travel, and he showed people a really, really good time.
So, people started to talk about Robin’s quirky tours.
They sold out and Robin had to hire more people, buy more mini-coaches, start working with spreadsheets, and concentrate on building the company, so more people could live his dream.
And after years of building, we now we have award-winning small group tours departing from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, London, and Dublin.
Sadly, Robin is too busy to see all these gorgeous places as much as our guides. But he’s happy others are now getting to see the places he loved in the way he loved seeing them. Use our Edinburgh online vacation planner to add Rabbie's and other attractions to your Edinburgh vacation plans.

This tour was excellent thanks in most part to our tour guide Barney. We traveled for three days to the Isle of Skye and were beguiled with stories of Scottish history and folklore. Laughter seemed to be a constant companion along with awe and amazement at the scenery and incredible history of this country. The accommodation in Skye was fantastic with a beautiful breakfast and lovely host. Thank you to the Rabbie's tours agency and a special thank you to Barney- you really made the trip worth wild. -Prague
Absolutely EXCELLENT. We did the 5 days tour of Northern England from Edinburgh and everything was absolutely perfect. Our tour guide and driver, Nick, created a friendly atmosphere in the small group and told us a lot of stories about the places we visited and gave us great suggestions about what to do and where to go in every place we visited. Apart from the usual visits, we were driven through beautiful panoramic views and nice spots that you do not normally see with standard tours. The great thing about Rabbie's is that everything is very flexible; you are free to do whatever you like at every stop and are suggested many the different options. Timing for every visit was well balanced and the stops were frequent and pleasant. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
