We came an hour before our trip and a kind employee rebooked us for earlier time slot. That was super nice. Trip was awesome, full of informations and fun.

It was excellent - really engaging and interesting. The whiskeys we tasted were also delicious and gave us the best buzz for the rest of the day.

overall very good. right on time always. the only downside was some of the buses were licking water from the roof, thats quite unpleasant

It was great. We missed our first meet time and they got us into the 4:00 Tastings were good. Guide was a wealth of information.

Excellent, bus drivers were friendly and very helpful Buses arrived on time and were clean. Good way of seeing the City.
