I'm guessing half the experience is about the itinerary and the other half is dependent on the tour guide. Ours was fantastic. Grant was extremely entertaining, knowledgeable, accommodating and enthusiastic I think it would be hard not to have a wonderful time with him at the helm. We booked the tour at the last minute as kind of an afterthought, in August 2016, and we were so happy we had the opportunity to do it. We got to see beautiful forests, rivers, peaty ponds and lochs, historic viewpoints, and even Birnam Woods! We are more theater geeks than drinkers, so the tour of the distillery was kind of an interesting bonus than the reason for doing this tour, but it was fascinating to see the distillation process and fun to think of Alan Cumming getting his start in this little town. We appreciated the small group size, which gave us the opportunity to move around more nimbly and also converse with Grant from time to time and learn even more. So much of what you remember from a trip depends on the people you encounter, and we came away smitten with Scotland, in large part thanks to Grant. Thanks for a great tour!
This is a great tour, showcasing the wonders and uniqueness of Scotland. I never knew the Highlands were so beautiful until we saw them in all their glory. The Whisky tour was fantastic and I had the pleasure of sampling the best whisky I ever had there. I thoroughly recommend paying for the higher priced ticket only a few pounds more than the regular ticket to try the whisky from the dram.
Jodi was the best and does a great job! She is very knowledgable on the salient points of Scottish history! Jodi is a great story teller and managed to keep us laughing. The Dewars Distillery tour was very educational and has helped to up my game as a Whiskey afficianado. Of course the Scottish Highlands scenery is brilliant. Only wish I had more time.
The tour was great!! It was not until the day after, when we visited the Castle and other attractions, that we realised how much of the Scottish history we were told during this trip. Jude was our guide and she was great. Good stories, not too long, not too short, very entertaining and informative. Our recommendations!
This small group Rabbie's tour was really wonderful. Our diver guide was very accommodating and we had a wonderfully pleasant day in the higlands and distillery- loved it. Would recommend tour and the company wholeheartedly
Ewan and #39;s dialogue was both entertaining and educational as we made our way to and from the Highlands. The sights were spectacular and the visit to the distillery was an informative and tasty conclusion to the tour. Our Scotland stay was made more complete by our participation in the tour. Thanks Ewan D
A wonderful. highlighted by a great tour of Aberfeldy distillery. They distill the heart whisky of Dewar's White label, and also spirits under their own name. Two options are available, 6 or 13.50. The very educational distillery tour about an hour is the same for everyone. And for 6 you can sample one of three of their 12-year-old products. But for 13.50, they add in a sample right from a cask - in our case a 27-year-old single malt. And you get to keep the glass. A real bargain, except I'm spoiled now, and my whisky budget is going to have to change. Especially sine my wife liked it too. Lastly, I have to mention the guide, Jude. She was fantastic. I couldn't believe she'd only been doing the job for a month or so. A natural story-teller, as I suspect all Scots are.
our driver/guide Heather was the best driver/guide we have never seen before.
The tour was very well planned and guided. The guide was able to alter the sites according to peoples interests.
This was an excellent tour and I'm so glad I booked it - tour was with local company Rabbies and our tour guide James was fantastic, he was a great and funny story teller and really made the bus component of the tour fun.
The scenery was beautiful, even with it being cold and wet. The whisky tour was informative and delicious. Highly recommend this tour.
