So glad that we took this tour. Colin was a perfect guide, great personality and was so well informed. We did go when production had been shut down, but I think that may have been a blessing in disguise. The cost of the tour was...More

We went on the tour with our guide Jamie. He had great knowledge of whisky and Glenlivet's history. He also put his sense of humor in his tour which made it even more enjoyable.

Fantastic tour with Ren, very interesting and took time to explain all of the equipment and the various stages of the distilling process. And a generous tasting to end including providing drivers with little take away bottles so we wouldn’t miss out

I visited with my partner last week during the silent season. I agree with another reviewer that the ticket price should be lowered a few pounds during silent season. Nonetheless, we really enjoyed the tour! Our guide, Kirsty, was great. We were fortunate enough to...More

Megan did a great job and I happily recommend the tour as it’s very interesting. Only one downside - I was there during the ‘silent’ season so the stills etc. weren’t operational. I think Glenlivet could drop the tour price by a couple of pounds...More

Great tour which mixed corporate with quaint. The tasting at the end was well worth the 10 pound price.
