My father and I took the 3 days Speyside whisky trail tour. The 3 days passed way too quick and we would have loved spending more time with our group. Our guide Jeff did a great job. He could answer every question and had so many interesting stories to tell. Our driver William drove us securely from one attraction to another.
We visited 5 distilleries and had plenty of time to do a tasting in each of them. We also had the time to do some photo stops.
We enjoyed every second of our trip and we’ll for sure be back and do another tour with Rabbie’s.

The key to success is the guide and we had a terrific one- WILLIAM DRUMMOND. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the areas we visited as we went on the distillery tasting tour. He filled us in as we travelled the the Highlands, on the people, the battles, the culture and history. Made the trip so very enjoyable. He clearly enhanced our experience. Wonderful trip!

This was our first tour with Rabbies and will decidedly be one of many. Matt was an incredible guide and I’d recommend any tour he leads. He was friendly, informative, and helped us make the most of each tasting, meal, and ride. Each of the distilleries was welcoming and added a different flavor and approach to introducing their whiskies.

A really great experience with an excellent guide in Gavin, who was spectacular. It helps when you have a bus full of outrageous and friendly Danes. The description implies a bit more nature viewing stops than are actually part of the tour. It is definitely whiskey/distillery focuses. It is excellent at that, though, and you do get some great small towns as well. Definitely recommend if you are focusing on the whiskey and clearly Ranbir's itself has a good system down with these tours. I will use them again when I come back.

Roger of Rabbies provided a comprehensive tour of highlands distillery. His fund of knowledge was impressive, and I was able to better understand the history of Scotland. Always prompt, always respectful of our time. I never found myself waiting. Good mix of distilleries, each provided a unique experience. It was fascinating to visit the cooperage. Thanks Roger for a very special tour.

Just completed this tour, with a really good group of international travellers. We were welcomed by the distilleries and the tasting sessions for our group were really informative. Our driver/guide Jeff was very friendly and informative for the sights between the distilleries and also his knowledge of whisky and the area. We will certainly consider another Rabbies whisky tour in future.

Nice 2 night, 3 day tour of the distilleries of Speyside. Tour guide Barney very knowledgeable but a little opinionated with some inappropriate humour I could have done without. Accommodation was nice, bit far out of centre of town when the weather is bad though.

Thank you for leaving your feedback, we are pleased that you enjoyed your tour and visiting Speyside whisky distilleries, unfortunately we cannot control the weather - Scotland has very changeable weather, hopefully the scenery, communities and people that you meet and the things you learn on the tour makes up for that. We will review the accommodation that you were booked in to and if you have the time please email feedback@rabbies.com with further feedback as that helps us fully review and develop our tours. Hope to see you again soon.

Exceptional 3-day tour with a casual, friendly feel throughout. Our charming guide and driver, Dan, was incredibly thoughtful and informative (with great taste in music to boot). The tour also offers far more than just whisky, such as stops at various sites/towns to explore. For my fellow motion-sickness sufferers, do try to sit near the front of the bus as the roads can get a bit rollercoastery!

Good value overall, even though the distillery tours/tastings are not included in the price. (Cost-cutting tip: You can choose to skip some of the tours, which can feel repetitive for "casual" whisky fans, and just opt for tastings.)

We had a fantastic time and would HIGHLY recommend this tour if you're a whisky fan looking to explore Scotland!

Glorious tour. Perfectly arranged and smooth throughout. Tour guide Grant is a gem - knowledgeable and engaged throughout, he knows so much about many different things... Scotch of course, but also history of Scotland and nature. And his storytelling!!! Grant also has a knack for pulling people together which is what makes him a top notch tour guide. This has been the most effective and engaged tour I've been on yet. We gathered so many memories. Looking forward to more with Adeo Travel and Rabbies.
