Very good and informative tour of a small Scottish Malt Whisky distillery. The tour guide was well informed and amusing. The Oban malt whisky is very tasty and was very welcome on a wet and windy winter's day. The tour costs £8 per person but you get a free 'dram' at the end and a voucher allowing £5 off the... More

Dad chose this for a rainy day trip. I'm glad he did. I've been on distillery tours before but really enjoyed this one. Stuart our guide got the balance right between information and entertainment. I think the compactness of the distillery adds to the tour and keeps it tight. Very good value with two tasters (packaged up for drivers) a... More

Very interesting and informative tour round this distillery. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made everyone feel at easy. Made me want to go and see some other distilleries to find out more about single malts. The dram at the end was an added bonus.

This is a large Distillery and the Tour should not be missed. The Tasting Bar at the end of the Tour features the selection of Malts that the distillery is famous for. Samples and product are all available.

Our tour guide Tim was fantastic, funny, and helped us understand everything. We weren't sure at first but were glad we came, also free whisky glass as a keep sake. A storied history of Obans distillery :)

I used to work in a distillery so distillery tours are something I can be quite quick to judge. I was pleasantly surprised by our experience at Oban - the distillery itself is unique, the town having built up around it, rather than being out in the middle of the countryside or on the outskirts. The visitor centre is fantastic,... More

A very informative, well run tour. I don't even like whisky but I found it very interesting. It's a small operation that is very hands-on and we were able to see everything that went on there and sample a dram or two!

Who would have expected a distillery smack in the centre of town? Interesting visit, staff very informative. If you don't want to do the tour you have free access to the shop but, when in Rome......! Although am not a whisky drinker I did enjoy the tour. Staff always on hand to answer any questions. Very enjoyable!
