David was a pleasant, knowledgeable guide and good driver, and the actual tour was great, which is why I gave it 5 stars. However, the check-in process was a bit of a pain - tickets were bought online well in advance but still had to check in within 24 hrs before the actual trip, and then again on the day of the tour on site. I understand from your perspective why, but it was a bit of a pain for tourists coming in from another country who had to interrupt activities/plans to concern ourselves with that, pay international cell phone rates to make the phone call, and then get transportation to the shared office in the money exchange place on High Street where the remote office is because the call wasn't made during office hours. That said, the tour was worth it.
We really enjoyed the day. David was a great guide, so pleasant and knowledgeable. The trip was the perfect length. The sights were lovely.
This tour was relaxing, informative and entertaining. It was an excellent balance of sightseeing from the van and stopping to walk and explore a variety of venues from nature, history and of course, the distillery. A lot was packed into a single day.
It was a wonderful and tast trip. From the beautiful scenery to of course the whiskey tasting - a wonderful experience!
David was excellent. Perfect amount of knowledge, story telling and willingness to let us just soak in the scene. Would defintely recommend!
The tour was great and our guides were very knowledgeable about Scotland and the areas we visited. The pace of the tour was great, did not feel rushed and was able to enjoy the scenery. The tour bus was clean and comfortable and made traveling very enjoyable. Highly recommend!
Jamie was an excellent guide. Perfect background stories, very guiding. The tour itself is a perfect roundtrip in order to get an impression of the Lowlands/Highlands. The combination of nature, old towns and whisky is perfect. We enjoyed it very much. Tip: always decide for the cask tasting!
Definitely recommend! Jane was a great guide and really took the time to ensure we enjoyed our trip. This area of Scotland is very beautiful and had me wanting to go back immediately. Also enjoyed how this was a small group tour, I think there were 10 of us total.
This was a great tour! The guide was incredibly knowledgable and fun. The scenery was beautiful and it was a wonderful day. I would definitely recommend it to anyone!
Grant was wonderful! It was an action-packed tour that gave a great overview of the highlands, lochs, and a whiskey distillery. Definitely recommend!
The trip was more than I expected. The guide and driver were knowledgeable and made the experience memorable. The best tour I have ever being on - would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you.
This was a wonderful day! Our guides were fantastic, the scenery beautiful and the whiskey tasty!
This was a great way to see some things outside of Edinburgh city without the hassle of renting a car or trying to drive on the opposite side of the road. Party Pete is a wealth of knowledge and delightful company. This was one of the best things we did on our trip.
Wonderful tour! Our tour guide Peter was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable; he really made the tour! Everywhere we went was stunning and the distillery tour was fascinating. The dram of whiskey at the end didn't hurt either!
The tour to the whisky factor was great. The price for it is only 5 pounds which is acceptable.
Breathtaking countryside, amazing tour guide, same as the one we had with the Da Vinci tour.
The scenery was beautiful and even though it was just a day trip, it felt like we really got to get out of the city and see Scotland. Eddy D, our driver and guide, was very informative, fun and helpful. Next time we'd like to take one of the multi-day tours and go farther. Thanks!
James our tour guide was great! His colorful commentary made the tour! There is a lot of driving around looking at the countryside, but it was very pretty. The tour and tasting at Dewars was interesting.
First - our tour guide ALAN was AWESOME - Alan the Awesome. Pl let him know. He was very knowledgeable - gave us the right amount of history not to bore us and threw in some interesting trivia too.
Perfect group size.
Just the right amount of activity for the day - it gave us enough time to explore without being rushed.
Really liked the bus size and it was very comfortable.
The weather was great too.
Great tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about Scottish history. This tour packs a lot in.
This tour offered great variety of destinations... interesting villages, beautiful scenery, wonderful short and easy hike to the waterfall, and views of the highlands and locks. Dan, our guide, provided interesting and informative narrative along the way that was superb. All in all, a terrific experience and great value.
Lovely day tour with an excellent guide, Heather, who was eager to share her beloved Scotland and many entertaining stories about Mary, Queen of Scots, Rob Roy, Wallace (Braveheart) and other historical and geographical tidbits. She was a careful driver and sensitive to the needs of her passengers. The high point of the tour was a stop at the breathtaking Queen's View lookout, a lunch stop in the charming town of Pitlochry, and a visit to the distillery. She also played wonderful Scottish music during the drive back which enhanced the experience. Highly recommended.
