Our party of 4 really enjoyed this tour. It was fun, interesting and informative - even for the non-whisky drinkers amongst us. Stewart was an excellent guide, pitching the information at just the right level for the group - including non-English speakers - and delivering with humour and enough energy to keep us all interested. Highly recommended. Head and shoulders... More

Very interesting tour in this much smaller than I expected distillery. It's great to be able to visit a distillery that really is in the middle of the town. The guide was great and some tasting is always appreciated.

The tour of the distillery was excellent and value for money. Two Whisky tasting parts were included in the price. This is the fourth time I had been to the distillery but this time managed to go round!!! Excellent place to visit, highly recommended!

The staff weren't too friendly. They didn't seem to care we were there. We had to purchase a taste of the whiskey. I hadn't seen that in a distillery up to this point. The whiskey tasted pretty good, but I wouldn't go back. I didn't feel welcome.

We visited the Oban distillery for the second time and it was as good as the first with good informative tours and lovely whisky and whisky products in the shop. The whisky for sale is also cheaper than in the shops in Oban. Well worth a visit.

The tour allowed for our children aged 8 and 10 to be with us, so it was great not to have gone through the hassle of leaving them at the hotel with sitters. Considering the distillery is not too big , and our tour had few people, we got a chance to have all our queries on single malt answered... More

The tour was informative and we saw the whole distillation process, before sampling their wares. A nice touch is that you get to keep the sampling glass.
