Great way to see Scotland

Excellent, got to see Scottish countryside and drove over large parts of Scotland with a great guide Doug. Visited some distilleries as well and learnt about the whiskey manufacturing process. You don't need to drink to enjoy this scenic tour and the people carrier was large and comfortable with hand sanitizer and masks. I recommend.

Weak Tour

When you read title you think this is all about whisky. But till 2 o'clock we wasted time and get bored so much. What I can see that tour guide try to kill time till visit whisky distillery. Instead of preparing the programme like this why don't you put one distillery in the morning and the other one afternoon? In that case everybody could be happy. or pick people 11 or 12ish and take them directly to coopers. And finally tour guide wasn't well enough trained about whisky information.

We're sorry that you didn't enjoy this tour. Though whisky is a focus of this trip, there is more to this region than whisky alone and the itinerary is planned with additional stops in Royal Deeside so that visitors get to appreciate the scenery and have a more varied experience. We wouldn't want anyone to sit on the bus for 3 straight hours, so adding the scenic stop in the morning is also a nice way of breaking the journey. The written itinerary does outline the plan for the day and it sounds as though the tour was delivered in line with that. It's normally very well received, but we're sorry it didn't work for you. Many thanks for your feedback, Aimee
