What people are saying about Perthshire

The trip was very entertaining, the guide knew a lot about Scottish history in general and about whiskey production in particular. Since we were a very small tour group of 5 people, he was able to make the program very flexible. There was not a guided tour in every distillery, but there was a supervised tasting. What you should keep in mind: The cost of the tastings is not included in the tour price, with 5 distilleries that's about an additional £70.

We absolutely loved this trip with Rabbies. Our driver, Martin, was second to none! The wealth of knowledge he posseses and his delightful way of sharing his information...Great guy, we stayed in Garden park organized by them. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. The distillerys were all good. The best part for me? Seeing the countryside... overwhelmed with the beautiful places we saw...all the way from NZ, I'm coming back Deb

A fabulous trip! We had no idea we were going to see so much of Scotland. Great visits to 6-6 whisky distilleries. Wonderful drives and visits to stunning forests and Highlands nature, the heather in bloom! Charming towns. Friendly people and good food and drink! Highly recommend!

The entire trip was wonderful. The driver / Guide Martin was such a wonderful host and the rest of the passengers from the states were so fun and friendly. The itinerary crafted was also excellent. Definitely will recommend this whiskey trails to my friends.

amazing experience. Alison was an excellent guide and driver and the accommodation in Skye inn was fantastic. I really recommend it.
