A Great Way to Spend a Day
, Nov 2021
Our driver and guide Eric had a great sense of fun and told many jokes along the way - “There are many dog trees in this area. How can you identify them?…By their bark.” Corny but fun. We enjoyed our time with him. The first distillery, Aberfeldy, was led by Michelle and she was terrific. Unfortunately we were late to the second distillery and enjoyed a tasting without a tour.
MUST DO, scotch, sights and stories
, Nov 2021
This is a must do. The sights, stories and scotch was unforgettable to say the least. Andrew P our tour guide made all the difference as he went above and beyond to ensure we saw the most in one tour. Simply amazing.
Great intro to Scotch
, Oct 2021
Guide was super knowledgeable about whiskey, having worked in the industry himself for many years. He also gave us a lot of history and trivia on Scotland and Edinburgh itself, which was a nice benefit. We went to two different distilleries - one very large and commercial, and another smaller and older one. It was nice to see the contrast between the two. I think a third distillery could easily fit into the day if you take out the morning coffee/tea break. All in all, a great introduction to the Highlands and a fun and easy way to spend the day.
Great day trip for whisky lovers or newbies!
, Oct 2021
This was a great tour for whisky lovers! Our tour guide Jim took us to Dewars and Glenturret distilleries, where we learned about the whisky making process and had a few tastings as well. Jim was a great guide, filling our day with stories about Scotland and his knowledge of whisky. He also stopped along the way for us to explore the little villages and natural beauty of the surrounding areas along the way. Highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun day from Edinburgh!

Excellent tour
, Mar 2020
We had an excellent time on this tour - tasted some great whiskies, learnt a lot about history and Scotland and saw some incredible scenery around the Highlands. Our guide Paul B was very knowledgeable and funny, would recommend this tour to anybody.
A great and delicious experience
, Feb 2020
This tour was great! As whisky drinkers ourselves it was great to have a tour guide who also knew a lot about whisky after working in the industry for 20 years. The bus was comfortable, we had comfort stops along the way, the views were amazing and our guide was very knowledgeable about the area. The distilleries were great, especially the Dewars distillery, where we had a whisky and chocolate pairing and a great tour of the distillery. We learnt a lot and had a great time, definitely worth the money. Thanks!
Amazing experience
, Jan 2020
