Doug really took time to explain details about the Whisky Trail and Distilleries. We enjoyed various photo opportunities along the way. The stops at the Speyside Cooperage and Strathisla - the home of Chivas were really good. The admission to the stops are extra, but well worth it. Thoroughly enjoyed our time!

Booked this trip a few months in advance. When we got to the bus station, it was me and my friend and a couple. The van was so nice! Heated, clean, and charging ports in all seats.

Our tour guide was amazing and very knowledgeable on whisky! He had great conversation and overall good energy which made the experience that much more pleasant. The tour itself was a great deal for the price. We even had some spare time to stop at a local town.

Overall, it was a great, well-put together tour that made the trip out to Aberdeen worth it. I enjoyed how we started from the making of the barrels. I learned tons about whisky which was the point of my visit! 5/5!

The tour was amazing. I absolutely enjoyed the whole trip and I definitely learned a lot more about the background of whisky. The tour guides, Alice and Alistair, were fantastic, they are really well-informed and they love to make a joke here and there. They both tell you a lot about Scotland!

When you ever come to Scotland I would definitely recommend this whisky tour. Especially since whisky is something where Scottish people are very proud of.

I had booked a Day trip to speyside distilleries , our host Neil was an outstandingly well informed and accomodative guide.
We were taken to the Cooperage , Glenfiddich distillery and the charming town of Tomintoul .
Kudos to the team Rabbies and to Neil in particular in making my trip a memorable one .

We had a terrific outing with Alice (the trainee) and Doug (I hope I'm remembering his name correctly?!) The whole trip was packed with gorgeous vistas, pleasurable stories, nice musical interludes, and of course, Whisky! We found that whisky is to Scotland as devilled eggs are to the midwest picnic menu. Everyone seems to have a favorite recipe and enjoys tasting other folks' home favorite. It's ordinary and special at the same time. The distilleries really welcome you and are very informative. It was all a terrific way to see the sights without the stress of driving, and all of your needs are well anticipated (i.e. food and restrooms). FYI: The cost of the tour is really for the transport and the guide's know-how. Entry to the distilleries, lunch on the road, etc. are NOT part of the tour price. Don't be put off by this- it is well worth the day out. And don't be shy about showing your appreciation to the guide- they will appreciate it!

The guide used the time on the bus from Aberdeen to Dufftown to give good and informative background information that made the guided tours on the Coopridge and the two destilleries more giving. I liked to note the differences in the destilling processer between the two destilleries. At Cardhu I liked to have an introduktion to flavors that made the testing at the end of the tour more interesting. I recommend to tale part in the blind testing at Cardhu.

We went on this day trip on the last day of our vacation and I highly recommend it. Doug was a fantastic guide and even took us on a little more scenic of a route on the way back which led us to a neat bridge over the river Spey where we stopped for some pictures. The Scottish countryside is very pretty and we were able to see quite a bit of wildlife including pheasants and red deer. The Glenfiddich and Cardhu distillery tours are well run with Drew (Glenfiddich) and Molly (Cardhu) being great guides. We also really enjoyed the speyside cooperage.

We lucked into a very small group tour (just the two of us). Douglas was our guide. Of the stops, Glenfiddich was especially great and the cooperage exceeded our expectations, as we were able to observe the craftsmen hard at work. Douglas was a first-rate guide; generous with his knowledge, friendly and flexible. He made sure we saw things we would have otherwise missed, both at the planned stops and along the way, and suggested great diversions. He’s from the area and shared lots of his insights. It’s hard to imagine what more he could have offered.

Neil and Douglas were excellent guides on this day tour. We went to Speyside Cooperage, Cardhu and Glenfiddich distilleries . The tours were informative, the tastings very good and the company excellent.
