    Exceptional 3-day tour with a casual, friendly feel throughout. Our charming guide and driver, Dan, was incredibly thoughtful and informative (with great taste in music to boot). The tour also offers far more than just whisky, such as stops at various sites/towns to explore. For

    We had an awesome time on our 3 day Speyside Whisky tour. Grant was our guide and he did an amazing job for showing us the Scottish Country side and keeping us entertained all 3 days. Grant shared great stories of Scottish History and whisky fun facts. This tour was a gift

    The whole three days were great. From the beginning at the new distillery of Lindores Abbey, to the end at the Royal Lochnagar, our guide Grant kept us informed with not only the history of whisky, but the areas we were in as well. A great tour, and quite an exciting journey.
