Thoroughly interesting hour spent with Gus our guide. Educated about the making of whisky and free to ask questions at any stage. The tasting with a free glass tops off the tour, but it is so much more than just that. Definitely worth the £10.

We hadn’t planned to do a distillery tour, but finding we had an extra couple of hours in Oban, we decided to do it. The cost was pretty much offset by the complimentary etched glass they gave us, and a 5 pound voucher on any...More

Got to see the inner workings of a scotch distillery. Gus is a wonderful tour guide and we enjoyed the samples at the end of our visit.

I have visited many distilleries in the past but this was, by far, my favorite tour....perhaps the fact that this is my favorite scotch whiskey accounts for some of my bias. The tour was informative and very enjoyable...our guide was a big part of that...More

Traveling thru Scotland, at the time it was just the 'next stop' on our trip. When you're in Oban of course you're going to visit the Oban Distillery. Then we began our tour with Kyle... 5th generation-- and his knowledge, passion and energy was captivating....More

The "full price" tour is well worth the extra. An intimate and interesting tour, followed by a relaxed tasting session. Our guide, Mike, was funny and interesting.
