This whisky tour was great. We had a nice group of 16 of different ages and from different countries. The bus was comfortable. Our accommodation at Bowmore Cottages was excellent. Right at the distillery and steps to everything in town, Our guide replenished our breakfast supplies every day. We visited 7 distilleries and lots of ruined castles, beaches, overlooks and rest stops. I would do this tour again.
Tour, tasting, travel companion (English) were excellent. Guiding at Ardbeg was the best, tasting anyway. Reductions in terms of cleanliness of the hotel or B&B in Bowmore.
Very well organized tour, great accommodation and great tour guide! 100% recommended for whiskey fans!
