    An absolute gem of place. Great food and great service. Very knowledgeable staff, even the manager took time out to talk to us personally about the various whiskies.

    Best food tour we have ever been on and we usually do a food tour on every trip. The places our guide, Ian, took us were really nice and beautiful spots.
    I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Edinburgh!

    Totally recommend Black cab tours for your Scotland experience!! We took the 8 hour Highland tour with whiskey tasting. Our driver, David, was so fun and knowledgeable about the history of Scotland. Helped make the trip interesting and enjoyable. The van was very comfortable and luxurious.

    Ronnie was our guide for a fantastic full day experience with tours of two distilleries, custom tastings and lunch and sightseeing. Ronnie is incredibly knowledgeable about whiskey but also was a fun and engaging guide pointing out highlights in the countryside, telling interesting stories and sharing his enthusiasm for all things Scotland throughout the day. With regard to the whiskey, we learned a ton about the process, about what we liked and why. Ronnie was super generous in exposing us to some bottles that were of quality (and surely price) well in excess of what we probably deserved as novices. I should also note that Ronnie was super responsive and easy to work with in planning the trip over email from abroad and all of the details, payment and so forth were seamless and easy. Our group included 4 university kids in their early 20s, my wife and I in our 50's and my 85 year old mother in law and everyone really enjoyed the day which says a lot about Ronnie! Highly recommend.

    My husband and I did the Once Upon a Whisky Tour in Glasgow on May 22, 2024. I booked this primarily for my husband since he is the whisky lover. Although we only had 3 people, our guide, Cam, decided to go ahead with the tour. We all met up at the Ben Nevis Bar in Glasgow, which is a fabulous pub! We were initially surprised that our guide was from Brazil, but Cam did an amazing job, and we all had a wonderful time. He is very knowledgeable and taught us things about whisky, distilleries, and bottlers that we didn’t know. We walked to two additional bars in pouring down rain and tasted a total of 4 different whiskies. All the bars on the tour had a cozy, unique atmosphere and were fun to visit. I’m not a whisky drinker, but even I liked some of the whisky and had a blast! I would recommend this to anyone who likes whisky and visits Glasgow!

    This tour was fantastic. A great mix of the new and the old of whisky in the Edinburgh area. Glenkinchie was lovely and the tour was very informative. We both learned a thing or two, while being entertained.

    Malt whisky society was outstanding. Good food and some of the best whisky around.

    Holyrood distillery is a new distillery that is one to watch for the future. Their current 4 year old whisky is more complex than most older whiskies on the market.

    Our driver Billy was full of information, a good laugh and was on time and very knowledgeable about the local area and whisky tours around Scotland.

    Peter was our incredible tour guide for a private 3 day Outlander tour. Travelled outside Edinburgh to Falkland, Inverness, Fort William, Glen Coe, Lochness, Trossachs, Stirling and more.
    He showed and taught us so much about attractions, history, famous locations. Peter offered lots of options and time to explore at our own pace. He brought us to places we never heard of as well. Extremely well organized.
    He also found us some Highland Coos which we had asked for.
    Peter went above and beyond for our perfect trip! He also made us feel safe at all times which was important and he has an enthusiastic personality!

    Highly recommend him and will book tours directly with him next time.

    Chris Keddie was our personal driver for most of our trip to Scotland. Chris gets an A++ from this retired English teacher from Auburn, Alabama. He was so kind, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the places we went. Chris said, "This is your trip; we will do what you want to do." My husband Mike and I felt as though we had a fourth nephew in Chris and are keeping in contact with him. If you are looking for a personal driver for your trip to Scotland, hire Chris Keddie; he is the BEST and will absolutely make your vacation wonderful.

    Jim Leslie- the Kilted Guide- made our family trip to Scotland special and memorable ( are a family of 5- parents and grown up children who enjoy traveling together ). Our family met Jim when he was the guide for a Road Scholar tour of Scotland we took two years ago- we returned to see what we missed the first time plus a number of additional places suggested by Jim. He worked to make the tour interesting for all- history, art, and literature buffs, cultural and social history fans, those interested in science and technology, and those who wanted to learn about whiskey distilling. This tour did not disappoint. It was fantastic - we learned so much- Jim is a walking encyclopedia- and we had a blast. Jim is kind, thoughtful, and a great mediator for a family where every person knows exactly what he or she wants - not always matching others. And he is a skillful driver on those twisty, narrow Scottish roads. He is a great teacher about Scottish history, culture, architecture, literature - he quotes long passages from Robert Burns with no notes. and while he is driving, he is talking at length about every area we are passing through. Whether he is doing a walking or driving tour, the Kilted Guide outpaces all others. We cannot wait for a return trip to Scotland. The Kilted Guide rocks!!

    It's difficult to summerize what this whisky tasting was in only a few words, but Neil was without a doubt the best host for a tasting I have ever had the pleasure of having. The length and depth of his knowledge is unrivalled, able to answer the most basic of questions simply and concisely, while also answering the bigger and deeper questions with incredible precision and facts. Warm, friendly, and in the incredible setting of the Jolly Judge, his premium tasting is absolutely not to be missed by lovers of Scotland's greatest spirit. Over 20 years old, every dram was a unique and wonderful sip, and coupled with Neil's excellent hosting skills, they only became more delectable because of it. Cannot recommend more highly!
