Imprégnez-vous de l'esprit de Speyside lors de cette excursion de 3 jours en petit groupe avec visite des distilleries de whisky ! Partez à la découverte de la principale région productrice de whisky d'Écosse, réputée pour ses whiskies élégants et subtils. Votre visite de 3 jours en petit groupe consacrée au whisky partira d'Édimbourg avec un maximum de 16 personnes et vous conduira vers la région nord-est de l'Écosse ! La région de Speyside suit le chemin du fleuve Spey, qui s'étend de l'ouest du parc national de Cairngorm jusqu'à la côte est. Avec ses nombreux lochs tortueux, ses gorges verdoyantes et ses sommets vertigineux, cette région est très appréciée de tous. Visitez quatre célèbres distilleries de whisky de la région (Dalwhinnie, Benromach, Glenfiddich and Glenlivet) et profitez de nombreuses dégustations. Et comme Speyside abrite 42 autres distilleries en activité, vous pourrez en découvrir beaucoup d'autres si le temps le permet ! Vous visiterez également la légendaire boutique de whiskies Gordon and MacPhail dans le Royal Burgh (ville) d'Elgin où vous pourrez acheter quelques-uns des meilleurs malts de Speyside.
Excellent tour. Our guide Stevie was the best. We saw beautiful, wild scenery as we drove through the Highlands and the Spey River valley. We had tastings at 4 distilleries and the Whiskey Castle. The stop at the cooperage was amazing. Our bed and breakfast accomodations in Grantown on Spey were very comfortable in a beautiful old stone house. On the tour we stopped at various historic and scenic sights, including Elgin Cathedral and some ancient stone bridges. Great tour.
We had a really good time with Pete as our tour guide he kept the trip exciting. Our Bed and Breakfast place was exceptional Allan and Sylva were really great hosts. The weather was really good for September it only rained part of one day.
The Speyside Whisky tour totally met expectations. Travelers were a mix of Europeans and North Americans and everyone was friendly and cooperative. Barney the tour guide and driver was amazing with his information and love of scotch whisky. He was articulate, irreverent, funny and knowledgeable. Clearly he enjoyed his job! We visited both small and large distilleries and got to taste lots of whiskey. Our B and B accommodation was immaculate and the homemade breakfasts were delicious. Everything went as planned and as promised. The tour is highly recommended.
Bring lots of UK cash as you pay for the tours in advance to the driver. Credit cards not accepted for the tours.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour - if you love whisky you must do this!
The whole package was excellent from the accommodation to the lovely Keith our driver. We learnt so much about Scotland and it's history too!
If I could give this tour more stars i would. Our tour guide was Stevie and he was amazing. We were a group of 14 plus the guide that spent 3 days on this tour. We all had a great time! All of the distilleries were amazing. Stevie was very funny and patient with all of us. I highly recommend this tour. This tour company Rabbi's is fantastic.
Great guide, great whiskey options, and a great learning experience.
Only thing I suggest doing is check the hotel options in Grantown-on-Spey and work with Rabbie's to find a good option that has good reviews. In the group I was in, we were split over a few hotels and not all were great.
Absolutely would do a tour with Rabbie's again and in fact maybe even repeat this specific one in the future.
This was an extremely well run tour with a fabulous, knowledgeable and full of dry humor, Keith the tour guide. It didn't hurt that we had unseasonably fantastic weather for sure but this would have been a great tour in any weather. The Scottish history lessons during the drive between distilleries was also a nice touch along with some scottish tunes mixed in here and there. I can't wait to come back for the Islay tour!!
