This was such a fun outing, and one that I would usually not book for myself (as a wine/beer type). What a happy surprise! The distillery tours were really interesting and conducted by lively knowledgeable guides who were also generous hosts (Helen, our whiskey guide, had them make a whiskey cocktail specially for me and another participant who also preferred not to drink it straight). For a quick lunch, North Berwick had an adorable high street, which was steps from the sea with gorgeous sweeping views. Guess what, gin is tasty! The gin hosts started us out with a G&T that was bright and crisp. Then they toured and poured more varieties as we sat and relaxed. The trip was made so inviting by Stefan, our guide and driver! It was just me and he was very welcoming. (Also funny, knowledgeable and generous when he could tell we wanted a quick photo stop on the drive home along the water). Perfect day!

Lovely tour, cool guide (Stefan) telling us all the stories about the fascinating history and culture as well as mentioning relevant films like Braveheart. Only bummer was that in Melrose we couldn't really visit the abbey as the porter was on lunch break and our guide even expected him to be. But other than that it was perfect to see some of the beautiful nature around Edinburgh :)

Allen from Hear of Scotland Tours was Amazing. I would do this tour again. he was very Knowledgeable and Melrose Abbey was an extra bonus.

Great tour and guide. You can see so much more territory on a tour like this than on your own. Worth every penny.

Fantastic trip, highly entertaining guide. My knowledge of sheep and whisky has been broadened considerably.
