Exceeded expectations

This whisky tour was great. We had a nice group of 16 of different ages and from different countries. The bus was comfortable. Our accommodation at Bowmore Cottages was excellent. Right at the distillery and steps to everything in town, Our guide replenished our breakfast supplies every day. We visited 7 distilleries and lots of ruined castles, beaches, overlooks and rest stops. I would do this tour again.

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.

Very well organized tour, great accommodation and great tour guide! 100% recommended for whiskey fans!
