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!

This trip is a must if you’re looking to explore more of Scotland, learn about the history, and sample whisky along the way (a must even if you don’t like whisky). Our guide, Paul, was so accommodating of everyone on the tour group. His sincerity and good nature is apparent from the moment you meet him. His telling of the history and tales of Scotland are like reading a book that you don’t want to put down. The world of whisky is vast and it was incredible to see how it’s made behind the scenes. This was by far the best tour I did during my time in Scotland and was an experience I’ll keep with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for everything, Paul! -D and Mel
