Fantastic trip well organized and our driver Peter was amazing well worth taking
Tour was great - excellent pace and lots of whisky! Never felt rushed at any of the stops, and the guide was very humorous too. Accomodations were amazing!! I loved the guest house I think they really pick well and at great value. If you like Whisky this tour is for you!
Had an excellent tour, the driver was great, loved his country and his Whisky which greatly added to the tour and experience plus the knowledge gained about Scotland and Whisky.
The only negative being that we were not told that the tours where not included in the tour package.
Our tour with Peter ("Party Pete") was fabulous. The group were great, the stops on the tour were a nice balance of sightseeing and distillery visits, schedule was excellent with appropriate stops to stretch our legs, and the Mercedes Minivan was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Peter knows his country and can answer many questions and has a very winning personality. The hotel booked for us was a fine 3 star in a nice village with a good bar and restaurant and great service. My wife and I were very pleased with the whole experience and recommend this tour to any couples or singles wanting to see the Highlands and experience the joys of Scotch Whiskey.
Excellent tour, Barney was great, B and B was awesome in Grantown.
Great guide. Lots of additional stops for photo ops and food. Always on schedule but never rushed good choices if distillers . One of the highlights for me was the time we spent at the cooperage. I am really not a drinker and it was great to see coopers and interns working.
Party Pete was absolutely delightful and so knowledgable and funny. Countryside was breathtaking and scotch tastings yummy. Great group of people to share three days with. Felt like I'd known them forever. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
Had a fantastic time on the Whisky Tour! Our guide Ali was amazing and made the trip even better. He was super knowledgeable about Scottish history and actually cared about us having the best time ever. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about whiskey and seeing the beautiful highland area.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and had a wonderful time. Alie (sorry if I'm misspelling) was our driver and tour guide and he was terrific--he has a lot of historical knowledge, was funny, and he kept us going! We had a great group of people who started as strangers and ended as friends. This is a great way to experience different whiskey distilleries and to see the beautiful Scottish countryside. We would definitely do another tour in the future.
Our guide was "Mac" - if you can land him do so. An absolute character kilt wearing, full of colourful and humourous anecdotes and a fount of information and a darned credit to Rabbies. A sincere pleasure to have met him, seen him in action and enjoyed his company for 3 spectacular days in the eastern Highlands and Spey region. One of Scotland's finest.
This tour was absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend it. We had an amazing tour guide, Barney who was very knowledgeable about whisky and also the history of Scotland. It was a great balance between visiting the distilleries and general sightseeing. We stayed at the Kinross Guest House and that was also topnotch. I loved it so much that I hope to take the four day Islay Tour some day.
my husband and i enjoyed this 3 day 2 nite tour...the guide was professional, experienced, personable and informative...we enjoyed the beautiful Scottish countryside on our way to the speyside region, our hotel in the little quaint town of granthom on spey was very good...the actual whiskey distillery tours were very good and we learned a lot about the whiskey process...I would recommend this tour highly
This trip was fantastic. Our guide/driver, Erik, was absolutely one of the best guides I have experienced in all my years of travel. He was constantly entertaining and informative. Great expertise on the area, the subject and Scotland in general. The tour was well organized and I loved the B and B where I stayed. Also very much enjoyed staying in smaller town. Highly recommend this tour to anyone with interest in single malt whisky and the area in general. Thank you very much for those who designed and ran this program.
Turned out there were just five of us with Eddie. He was great and took good care of us. The B and B we stayed at was FANTASTIC! It was a new B and B and she was marvelous! The only disappointment was the fact that we paid a fee at the different distilleries. I thought that was included in the price -- it added up.
It's a very very relaxing low key trip! It is at a slow pace so I recommend if you'd like to party, stay in the big cities like Edinburgh or Glasgow. If you're looking for some beautiful scenery, good food and great scotch experience, I highly recommend! The local agency was well organized and the transportation was comfortable. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable as well! Budget for some extra money for couple bottle of Scotch!
Excellent tour, MAC, was the best guide/driver with many stories and tales to tell! His knowledge of 'Speyside' just made the tour spin along with distilleries 'thrown' in for good measure...The B and B in Granton was wonderful and the local bars never short of the best range of whiskies....thanks Rabbies....
Excellent tour by Rabbies. Tour guide Eric very good. Very helpful, full of information. My wife doesn't like whiskey but can't stop talking about the trip.
This tour was a perfect taste of Scotland. Our group was a comfortable size with a very knowledgable guide. It really offered something for anyone who wants to know about whisky making and tasting, or for someone with advanced knowledge. It offers opportunities to experience whisky first hand and enjoy the beauty and history of this region of Scotland.
The whisky tour was incredible. The distilleries we went to and the sights we say in the Highlands were amazing. I was able to take an incredible album of pictures. After 3 or 4 distillery tours we got the picture and didn't need more tours. We just wanted the whisky tastings. We stayed 2 nights in Grantown in a bed and breakfast which was not the best of towns. It was too small, there wasn't any nightlife, and the restaurant options were limited. It would of been nice to stay in Inverness instead.
Our tour guide Mac and driver Pete were incredible. Mac was very knowledgable and he was a great storyteller. If you have the option, make sure to ask for them as your guides.
Fantastic albeit tame 3 day tour of the whisky Speyside area in the Highlands of Scotland. Bruce as tour guide kept things interesting with historical, cultural and personal observations using oratory skills reflective of Scotland's finest. Various short side trips showcasing some Highland treasures not part of the official itinerary made for a pleasant surprise. And the music - Lau! Bruce - try Trembling Bells! Thanks!
The trip was great! Very good guide, lots of stories,good weather during those 3 days.
Great tour but don't expect any cheap whiskey ANYWHERE in Scotland.
