Our tour guide was funny, kind, and knowledgable. He gave the tour a Scottish touch and added comedy throughout the tour.

Good whisky but shame about the tourist rip off business. Get treated like dirt by the boutique staff. Watch out what they charge you for each item because they charge what they like.

This was a great way to begin our 10-day driving trip through the Scottish Highlands. My friend and I had never even tried Scotch and didn't expect to like it, but we were both hooked after the tour and tasting! The guide was very informative...More

You do not have to do it, but I recommend it - especially the Oban tour is really nice. The best DIAGEO tour.
