Myself and father in law did the Islay Whiskey tour in June. We had an absolute blast. From Edinburgh to Islay and everywhere in between we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Guide James was outstanding. His wealth of knowledge and witty humor made the trip that much better. Would highly recommend this trip.

An A+ in every sense. James was terrific--funny, interesting, a perfect guide. The Bowmore House was very comfortable, clean and welcoming--and the breakfasts were bountiful and delicious. Andrew and Allison were very friendly and excellent hosts. I can't say enough for the tour. It was a delight. So complete and well organized but never with a feeling of being rushed.... More

The Scottish Routes Speyside tour was one of the best vacation experiences I've ever had. Beautiful scenery, an excellent selection of distilleries from fairly small to very large, and from brand new to ancient with a variety of tours and tastings. The entire tour was well organized, with room for flexibility in the schedule. I booked the tour well in... More

My son and I took the Scottish Routes Speyside tour. We had a fantastic time and everything was perfect. The experience was everything we hoped for with lots of whisky, education, fun, and laughs. In addition to the wonderful scenery and visits to the distillery, the success was related significantly to our guide Duncan. He is really an affable, friendly... More

Our family of 11 enjoyed several tours with Michael and he did a great job of getting us to our destination, providing lots of background and historical information, suggesting excellent places for lunches and in general took great care of us all.

I'm writing to let you know what a wonderful time we had on our Speyside whiskey tour this May. When we arrived at the coffee house at 7:45 to await our tour, we saw many groups and guides come and go.

Superb! If you like whisky (or just want to learn a little more) then this is for you. Nothing is too much trouble and the tour reflects this in how well organised it is. Our guide, James, was friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. I'd recommend this company to anyone wanting to do something different on their trip to Scotland.
