What people are saying about Balloch
I'm glad I choose this tour. Toni, the guide/driver was one of the most professional persson I have met. He had a close contact with the office and made sure that guests who were running late will be on the bus. Even thoug it put us 5 min behind the scheduled trip, Toni reassured us that it will not effect our tour. He also gave us a choice between two options to view Loch Lomond and took the extra 20 min total drive to make sure we have the best scenery. He was not aware that the road the distillery was closed, but with a professional, calm but fun attitude he got us there on time and we did not miss a minute. We actually had a chance to experience more of the Scottish country. He introduced us to many interesting facts and the music choice and information around it was extra. The guided distillery tour was also a pleasant experience. I experienced a great afternoon with an intelligent and fun guide. Well planned trip, I can highly recommend.
We were slightly late coming all the way from Inverness and were delayed by many slow touristic drivers. We called ahead and were told that the boat left directly on time. We still tried to make it as this was our only time around the Loch. We jumped out of the car just as the cruise was coming of the moor and when the staff saw us they pulled the boat back so we could jump on and enjoy the cruise. It was amazing and we loved the atmosphere and the history.
The tour contains visits to Loch Lomand and a Whisky destillery. While you have plenty of time at the destillery for both visiting and shopping you are limited to 30 minutes at the famous lake. Thus the tour operator demonstrates that making money is much more important to them and their partners than enjoying the guests. But the driver was friendly, everything well organized.
Guide/ driver was friendly, informative and kept to outlined schedule. Vehicle was clean and comfortable. Although I have never had Scotch whiskey, I enjoyed it as well as the tour of Glengoyne. Excellent guide, Meghan explained everything about their product, the history of Glengoyne and how it is made as well as the differences between the various aged whiskeys.
Good hour trip covering the southern area of the loch. Well organised and easy to book online. Recording cometary made it feel a bit in-personal and would have been better delivered live by a crew member.
