What people are saying about Aberfeldy
If you are in Scotland, Scottish highlands are not to be missed. If you have just 1 day, this tour is the one for you. This tour takes you through all the key highlands attractions close to Edinburgh - Queen's View, Hermitage walk, Dunkeld, Blair Castle, River Garry, Killiecrankie gorge, Glencoe, etc. The guide entertains you throughout the tour with various folklores and stories from Mary, Queen of Scots to the Scottish highlands. There is enough time to visit provided all of them except Queen's View and Blair Castle. You may require 2.5-3 hours for Blair Castle instead of 1.5 hours which is provided. As for the Queen's View, it's too beautiful to just take a few snaps and then leave. 20 mins is too less a time for that. I am a big fan for admiring natural beauty and I would require at least 1 hour to be at the spot. It was quite rainy on the day of the tour but Matt made the best of it and made sure that we enjoy all the spots even if that means we reach to Edinburgh 1 hour late.
THIS TOUR WAS EXCEPTIONAL! Reasonably priced. Highly recommend it. Our tour guide Jim Scott was great. Hilarious guy. Could've sat in the bus for 9,5h and do nothing and it still would've been great. He told us lots of interesting stories and facts, played music, gave tips and recommendations (where to eat, drink, what to visit) and they all were spot on. The day passed quickly, but we didn't feel rushed. Sights were beautiful. The nature there really is something to see. Whether it rains or shines, it's beautiful. Dewar's distillery was also really great experience. Interesting, informative and the tasting (especially from the cask) was eye-opening. Loved everything about the tour! Gladly would go again.
We had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend to other visitors. We also want to say that our tour leader Eric was amazing, he truly made the trip memorable. Eric was engaging, humorous, and shared personal stories that made the experience interesting and memorable. We really appreciated an unscheduled stop in Fortingall to see the Kirk and 5000 yr old yew tree. Please pass along our thanks to Eric and his boss.
James was our tour guide and driver. He was amazing. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and geography of Scotland. The tour took us to two distilleries and at least 5 or 6 other stops for either photo ops or lunch or just be able to walk around. It was the best tour we had out of the 5 tours we took while we were in Scotland. Even if you don't drink whisky, (which I don't), it was a great tour.
Very professionally conducted tour. The driver guide Martin was amazing both in terms of his knowledge and wit. Visit to Aberfeldy Dewar Distillery was magnificent. Nobody should miss out the whiskey along with chocolate tasting experience. The entire drive to Deanston Distillery, Doune Castle, Bridge on Forth, Stirling was every minute well spent. A must do for everyone in love with Whisky
