It was a ‘ok’ tour - I probably wouldn’t have paid to go on the tour if I have learned more about the tour before hand!! The Whisky room was impressive but that’s about it.

Very informative. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun.

The only thing I liked was the plenty botles off whisky they have. The rest do not value the money to the minimum.

The tour is largely pre-recorded, or otherwise scripted with strict timing. It's not possible to ask the guide to repeat themselves. Disruptive children in the group practically ruined the experience due to this dynamic. Would highly recommend making specific groups for families.

It was fun. And the tour was available in dutch, which was a supprise. So we did the dutch tour. Everything was clear and well explained. The tasting was fun. You get to pick the taste you think suits you the most. The restaurant (amber) had a good variety of foods and it's cheap (in comparison to other restaurants). Definitely try this!
