HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Stuart B, our Scottish kilted tour guide and driver was great, shared stories, great music, and the way he weaved the sights while traveling on the bus with music and stories of history, myth, and lore was so good and made the time fly, traveling for 9.5 hours seemed to just fly! Dunkeld was one of the first stops and was a lovely walk in rain through woodlands alongside the River Tay, then a short drive to the waterfalls of Hermitage which was a sight to behold! We had lunch in Pitlochry and had a walk around the town and sampled the local Whisky ice cream which felt wrong on a rainy day but still was a memory to treasure. The next stop was The Queens View at Loch Tummel which is a view all should try to see, truly special! The last stop, Dewar's World of Whisky was a great way to end the trip, The distillery was a great experience and the tasting (especially from the cask) was eye-opening. Last but not least, the Glens are so beautiful too!

Driver and tourguide Duncan is a funny man with a world of knowledge. He took us to the most breathtaking spots. And the whisky at Dewar’s was phenomenal. As was the tour inside the distillery. All in all absolutely worth booking!

The best guide, Stuart B, such a charismatic person. Comfortable, clean and in good state transportation. Beautiful places, felt in the real Scotland (no main city). Good whisky tour and tasting at Dewars. Totally worth it!

the tour was excellent. it was informative and interesting and our guide was awesome!

Stefan the guide driver was very nice and friendly
