    Went with this tour in March. Scotland was struck by a snow storm just before we arrived, and the views were spectacular with the landscape covered by snow. The tour guide was high in spirits and had good knowledge and was good at telling the history/stories.

    An immensely enjoyable day out. Graham, our driver, and his team were a lot of fun. We had plenty of laughs on the bus and the distillery tour was a real highlight. Good value for money. Warmly recommend!
