Speyside Whisky Experience by Whisky Trails: Macallan, Glenfiddich, Glenlivet
From $413.55 (Price varies by group size )
Excellent, fully customizable experience!
, Nov 2019
This was probably the best possible way to discover the Highlands. After a short talk Brett, our driver, was able to propose just the right experiences for our needs. I wasn't very interested in Whisky tasting itself (although I drank some excellent whisky at Glenfiddich and Cragganmore), but came here to learn how Whisky is made.
So our tour included one huge, one big and one small distillery, the option to have an talk with one of the masters of the craft as well as a tour around the Speyside cooperage, where I learned about how to treat, use and choose the right cask for the Whisky I want to make.
Expectations exceeded and well worth the money!
Whether you are a whisky aficionado or a complete novice, this Whisky Trail has something for everyone. You will be picked up from where you are staying and transported in comfort, safety, and style to Speyside. This is a private tour and only your group will participate.
If you book between April and October you will visit the big three Speyside distilleries, namely The Macallan, Glenlivet, and Glenfiddich. The agenda is flexible so depending on whether you have chosen to book a tour at one of the distilleries, we will agree the timing for your day before setting off together.
PLEASE NOTE: the Glenlivet Distillery closes from November to March and therefore an alternative distillery will be agreed with you if you decide to book during these months.
At the end of the Whisky Trail, we will head back to your starting point or another location by prior arrangement.
NOTE: Depending on your starting location, the round trip from your location to Speyside could be as much as seven hours.
Whiskywheels group was great. Our guide Andy was absolutely terrific. The weather cooperated, and our family of 6 are all looking forward to returning for a longer visit.
The only hiccup was that we booked for December 25 since we had a very limited window of opportunity for the visit. We were assured by the Viator rep that this tour was available on that date, but of course it wasn't. Whiskywheels managed to accommodate us with a slight alternatives, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. Booked here in the past for Champagne, happy to book here again
Euan was a nice and humble guide through out the whole day. The Macallan building was exceptional and the local guide funny. Glenlivet hmmm, but Cragganmore was great.
Maybe 3 distilleries was one too many concidering the 3h hour drive back and forth
The first tour to take you to three top distilleries in one day!

Cute little stories with an easy to follow guide.
, Jan 2020
I enjoyed this audio tour. It had cute little stories that you probably wouldnt find out other ways and was very easy to follow. There is some construction work going on at the moment which meant I needed to jump the tour myself as it didnt know my location, but that was the only glitch and not their fault :)
Plan to do some more of their audio tours.

Speyside Delight - Scottish Whisky Tour - Private Full Day
From $618.94 (Price varies by group size )
Glenfarclas, Aberlour, & Macallan
, Dec 2019
The Glenfarclas distillery was fantastic, a really good one to visit to get a complete tour. The Aberlour tasting was very average, but since this company has a large conglomerate of whiskys, I was able to purchase "Longmorn" and others. The pilgrimage to "The Macallan" distillery was a let down. The facility was impersonally impressive and the two tastings were below average. I should have asked to take the money paid for Macallan tour and spend it on one of the better Scotches at their bar. Our driver was capable and well mannered. The length of this tour started at 6:15am and ended at 8pm.
Euen picked us up at 6:30 AM, and we enjoyed his conversation and that of the only other passenger for the nearly 3 hour trip to the Highlands. All three distillaries were interesting, and it was a interesting to see the different environments. All in all, a fun and very full day.
The Speyside region of north-eastern Scotland is renowned for its single malt whiskies, which are sold all around the world. On this tour, immerse yourself in Scotland’s whisky-making history and heritage as you visit three Speyside distilleries in one day. Visit distilleries such as Macallan, Glenfarclas, Glenfiddich, or Aberlour; learn about the whisky-making process on a guided tour; and sample a selection of different whiskies.
We had such a wonderful experience on our tour. We were on our honeymoon and the only two people on the tour that day. It was a very intimate and informative day. We loved getting to hear all about the local history and new development around Aberdeenshire. We would highly recommend it to anyone staying in the area. And the homemade snack were a delicious bonus!
Excellent tour of the castles and the Glen Garioch distillery. It was good to see a restored castle and one that more in ruins. The one in ruins left a lot for the imagination. Jacqueline also provided snakes along the way for a taste of the local fair.
Although most famous for its castles, Scotland has an interesting culinary heritage. Get a true taste of the country during a full-day tour that visits the Glen Garioch Whiskey Distillery and three major historical attractions. Letting someone else drive means you’ll have more time to focus on northern Scotland’s stunning scenery and can skip worrying about getting lost on rural roads.

Speyside Whisky Trail with Brett
, Nov 2019
We had an absolutely fabulous tour with Brett! He had the day extremely well organized and laid out. He gave us ample time at each location which kept us on track for the entire day. He prepped us on each of our stops ahead of time, so we knew exactly what to look for and expect. Besides stopping at the distilleries, we also went to a cooperage to see how each of the casks are made individually by hand. We can't recommend Brett highly enough - he's very organized, knows his history, gave us some recommendations of historical places to visit while in the Avimore area and has a great sense of humor
which we thoroughly enjoyed!!
Brett provides a wonderful whisky tour experience!! We had a group of four for two days and Brett guided us through distilleries in Speyside and the Highlands with engaging conversation, stories and insight into which distillers to tour. The car was more than comfortable and he even tended to our luggage while we did a little shopping prior to catching our train.
