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.

This was our second trip with the 3 day Speyside whiskey tour, we loved it so much back in 2017 this time we brought my Dad, sister and brother-in-law. Again a great few days drinking whiskey, eating great food and seeing beautiful scenery and fabulous places, whilst being thoroughly schooled and entertained by the lovely Grant.

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.

We had an awesome time on our 3 day Speyside Whisky tour. Grant was our guide and he did an amazing job for showing us the Scottish Country side and keeping us entertained all 3 days. Grant shared great stories of Scottish History and whisky fun facts. This tour was a gift for my husband (whisky lover for many years) and myself a whisky "Virgin" we both thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would Highly recommend Rabbie's Tours.

I've done quite a few tours around the UK and Europe; Contiki's, Isle of Skye Tours (X2 both different companies), tours around Ireland etc etc. But this Whisky tour was absolutely the best so far! Liam our bus driver and guide was awesome! Very interesting bloke who was happy to tailer how much information he gives to the group (given this was a whisky tour not a Highland tour it was appropriate). He was very knowledgeable about anything and everything you asked. The price was very fair I found for the tour and the bus actually was very comfortable with USB charging ports available on the bus. The distilleries themselves were again great! Did some big name places as well as ones I have never heard of, but make a fine product. I personally would absolutely recommend this tour for anyone and everyone who is either in love with Whisky or doesn't mind one or two.

The whole three days were great. From the beginning at the new distillery of Lindores Abbey, to the end at the Royal Lochnagar, our guide Grant kept us informed with not only the history of whisky, but the areas we were in as well. A great tour, and quite an exciting journey. Would definitely recommend.

We had such a great experience touring the Scottish Highlands and visiting different distilleries. Our tour guide/driver Dunkin was fantastic, we loved hearing his stories about the all the places we visited. A must if you are travelling to Scotland. Would recommend Rabbies tours to anyone!
