What people are saying about Oban

This was one of the best package tours I have had. I was a bit sceptical as I normally do for single day tours but it was an amazing experience. Stuart is a super guide and his enthusiasm on islay whiskey was the driving force. He is also very friendly and helpful. The Bowmore cottage was wonderful and I enjoyed the stay there. The whiskey tastings itself were very well managed and fun.

Great trip for whisky enthusiasts! My husband and myself thoroughly enjoyed this trip with Stewart our guide. I’ve learnt to appreciate this magical water of life! We visited 7/9 distilleries on the island and came home to London with a suitcase full of whisky.

Our guide from Rabbies was fantastic. Adam tried to anticipate our every want. Highly recommend this service. We were nervous, but everything went so smoothly. My husband was so happy with the whiskey experience!

Many thanks to Rabbie’s tour with Pete as our knowledgeable guide! It was totally beyond my expected tour ever with amazing experience of the Islay Whiskies with nice tour members.

This was an excellent trip! Keith was a excellent tour guide and would love to be able to this again!
