Not being whisky drinkers we weren't fussed about going round but we are really pleased we did. Our tour guide was very clear and knowledgeable (although she had not been there long) and made the tour very interesting. We found it to be good value for money as you had a free taster and you get to keep a little... More

Superb tour, good guide... lovely smell in the noise during the tour. Good tasting afterwards with a remark that they should bring the 11 years cask strenght to market

Had a terrific tour with Bill. The distillery in the heart of downtown Oban...only one wash still and one spirits still. Why they don't expand is beyond comprehension. However, it is a worthwhile visit. It also boggles the mind that the distillery did NOT have the distillers edition to taste. But every store in town did. Puzzling.

This tour takes you through the steps of making whiskey with several stops throughout the distillery. Our tour guide was informative; just the right amount of info to get the point across without becoming boring. We got to taste some very young whiskey and well as one of the finished products. There is a showroom/gift shop where you can make... More

I don't like whisky, but still found the tour fascinating and loved to see all the traditions being followed to produce a very high quality product. The rest of the family, who all do like whisky, developed a greater appreciation for their tipple, and understanding of the differences to be found from different distilleries.

Decent distillery but fairly small and less to see compared to others, hence I would not say this is the best I have been to. The staff were friendly.

Polished, professional tour - a bit corporate, but then again, this is a Diagio property. Tasting room and waiting area are comfortable and interesting. Tasting session was brief and basic, but the candied ginger as a compliment to the scotch was interesting. Convenient location of distillery in the middle of town makes this one of the easiest distillery tours to... More

Brilliant tour , informative guide who managed to engage even our 8 year old and keep her interested . A must for whisky lovers as you get to taste an 11 year old Oban only available to those on the tour and you get given your tasting glass in presentation box .

Our guide was absolutely lovely and the tour was fascinating. For what you get for the money, it was excellent value and I can't fault it.
