It is important to note that both distillery tours are an additional fee you need to paid to the distilleries themself, but otherwise this is an excellent tour. When you do pay for the tours, I and #39;d encourage you to take the second options, as it means you and #39;ll be tasting a second whiskey per visit.
This was a great all-day activity. Not only did we get to visit two distilleries, where we learned a lot about the production of Scotch single-malt, but the drive through the countryside was beautiful. The tours and tastings are an additional expense, but the cost was nominal and certainly worth doing.
Only made one of the two distilleries, where we bought 3 bottles of excellent Highland whiskeys. Then our guide, Mike, mentioned we would see Doune Castle very close to the second distillery. For Outlander fans, that is Castle Leoch!! He dropped the people interested in the distillery there, and took the rest of us to the Castle, which we were able to tour. Bought a Fraser tartan plaid there and was immensely happy! Mike was the best, telling of Scot/Brit history most of the way
My husband is a whisky lover and enjoyed this trip very much. The driver James was very nice and instructive. The whisky that we tasted was fantastic and lunch was delicious.
Fantastic trip, and our tour guide was first rate. Definitely worth the price. As other commenters have noted, the distillery tours and tastings are not included in the price, but are fairly modest. Pay a bit extra for the three tastings!
This was a terrific experience whether you are a scotch fan or not and Paul was a fun tour guide! We visited Glencoyne first which was in production provided a great tour of the facilities and the tastings were excellent! Deanston was not in production but was still a good tour. I would have maybe opted for a Distillery that was in production but it was a good example of how different the Distillery's can be. Lunch could have been a better experience as it appeared the restaurant was prepared for the tours that descended upon it so the service was slow....The food was excellent but the slow service limited our time to wander around Loch Lomond! Still - I highly recommend this tour!!!
Heather our guide was amazing!!! The tour was great... the whiskey even better
Brilliant driver/guide. Both whisky distilleries were interesting experiences especially the tastes. I would use Rabbies, who did the tour, for other tours of Scotland based on this experience.
This was a fantastic day of touring 2 great distilleries along with a beautiful relaxing drive through some fantastic Scottish scenery. Our tour guide, James, did a fantastic job. Very knowledgeable!! I would highly recommend this.
My wife and I really enjoyed this tour, not only for the information about the Distillery but the countryside and tour guide information were excellent. We would do this all over again
Our family of four 2 adult sons had a tremendous time on this Rabbie's tour. Our guide Richard was outstanding, entertaining and informing us throughout. Both distilleries were terrific. We learned a lot and really enjoyed the whiskies. The views along the way were spectacular, and Loch Lomond was lovely. We would highly recommend this tour!!
Very good experience. Our guide, Mike, told us about the history of sights we passed and about the current political and economic climate of the country. This was one of the best day trips we've been on. And the distillery tours were great. It was nice to see an historic distillery as well as a new one. Strongly recommend purchasing the double tasting at each.
Absolutely great! Didn't know until after I bookedthat the tastings were additional, but still well worth it. I'm not a whisky drinker, but the husband is. I still really enjoyed being taken through the history and process. Paul was very informative about Scottish history and really made the day. Also met a lovely couple who we shared a table for lunch. Definitely recommend this tour
Our tour guide Jeff was very nice and had all the right information. A great way to see Scotland's countryside with a little whisky!
This tour was fantastic! Our driver, Mike, was so knowledgeable and friendly! He regaled us with the tale of Mary, Queen of Scots on the drive to and from our destination. It set just the right tone as we traveled through the countryside. The distillery tours did not disappoint, and the place we stopped at for lunch was so quaint and beautiful! I highly recommend this tour for any whiskey enthusiast.

First of all, Sandy from Rabbie's was a truly stellar guide! He was so knowledgable and provided really great commentary during all aspects of the journey. I also loved that he played Scottish folk music on the way back to Edinburgh, so lovely. Perfect mix of taking care of the logistical details and letting us have free time. Glengoyne was a magical place - didn't want to leave. Not so impressed with Deanston though, might be nice to choose another distillery in the future.
We had a fantástico time. Our guide was friendly, very well informed, very keen to help us and make the best out of our time. In fact, Sandi was a fantastic host.
Everything we wanted, two different distilleries, a nice guide and a small group.
We had the best time, Mike kept us entertained and shared his knowledge of Scottish history with us. We really enjoyed the whiskey and the tour.
The tour was great and the company that organized the tour Rabbies was terrific. Our guide was knowledgeable, flexible, and did a great job of ensuring we knew where we were going, history of the region, and that we stayed on schedule but he wasn't overbearing about it.

Tour was excellent. Our guide Gill did great job of explaining history of everything we were seeing and more. Scotch was very good as well. Tour was well worth rhe money.
This day trip was so much fun. We are both very happy we made it. Our driver, Gordon, was witty and very entertaining with stories about Scotland. Both distilleries were worth the trip. The tours were fun and the whisky was phenomenal. Don't hesitate to book this tour if you are looking for something fun and interesting to do for a day. It is a very well organized and reliable company. The small group, fewer than 15, makes for a more pleasant experience.
