Arriving in Glasgow Marti McColm once again met us at the airport and this time... More

We had 11 of us in the tour and as soon as we stepped on the bus the education began, as well as a sensory expedition of some of Scotland's best distilleries. Will had organised for us to meet distillery managers, owners, make what was only... More

We toured from Edinburgh to Islay to Oban to Isle of Skye then back to Edinburgh with Marti McColm. It was a fabulous trip . We saw so many things we never would have found and learned so many things as well. Marti was a wealth of knowledge regarding Scottish history with an extremely pleasant presentation. All aspects of the... More

I thought we had got it right when our Limo (a White Jaguar) arrived spot on time to pick us up at our Glasgow hotel. Our chauffer had a mine of info about the sights as we wafted to Deanston Distillery where we joined the rest of the tour. Our Tour Guide and Driver Duncan was incredable. He had an... More

Our tour guide Will was in contact with us months leading up to the trip and planned great itinerary based on what we wanted to do and see.

Islay Whisky tour with James was just marvelous. Certainly my best holiday in ife. The visits were perfect. Very good balance between all distelleries. In each one we discovered something new and did not have to listen to the same stuff 8 times (we visited 8 distilleries), which was my fear. Certainly because of good relations Scottish routes maintain with... More
