Crafty tours offers a great opportunity to explore Edinburghs Craft scene with a passionate guide. Apart from trying a delicious and varied number of different beers (and gin), I learned a lot about the process of brewing which I really enjoyed. I definetly recommend this tour :)

I set out to learn exactly what kind of beer I like. And I did. This tour is informative, full of sensory experiences and involves a nice bit of walking around beautiful Edinburgh. I received a thorough brewing education, sampled a ton of beer (and some lovely gin as well) and couldn't eat all the tasty food at our final destination. I thought this Crafty Tour was fantastic value and highly recommend it.

What a fantastic tour ...not only did we get to try out some great craft beer and gin but our guides told us lots of interesting facts about the city and made some fantastic recommendations. An overall great day out and we got to visit some places that otherwise we may of never got to. Highly recommended!!

My partner and I took the brew & still tour with crafty tours on Saturday and had an absolute blast. Dan the tour guide is very friendly, knows his stuff and definitely made the experience memorable. The tour itself is a great mix of venues including an american style bottleshop/pub, a brewery across from a gin distillery and a brewpub. we spent a bit of time in each venue trying different drinks, learning about the history of each venue, the distinct style of beers, and trying some very very nice gin! I had only hear of one of the venues we visited before we took the tour, and was very pleasantly surprised by all of them. I'll definitely be visiting at least a couple of them again in the near future when I'm back in Edinburgh.

Had the luck to book the first tour of the year with Dan and it was a very chilled, very fun day out. We visited a number of different bars that were all fantastic in their own right. I loved how the day combined bars with a brewery and a distillery tour. Each place Dan took us to was friendly and ready to answer our questions (even the inane ones!). Dan and his partner Alicia were legends! Very friendly and professional couple. Highly recommended!
