We really enjoyed meeting our guide, Liam. Everything was just as the reviews said, great communication and pickup was on time, right at the ship. They customized the tour to fit our schedule. We saw the beautiful countryside distilleries and Dunrob Castle..had lunch at a delightful inn. Great fish n chips.

Fantastic
Nolan_M, Sep 2023
My Gavin review: Gavin at Inverness Whisky Tours is excellent. He took fantastic care of me and my family on an amazing day tour of speyside and highland distilleries. He’s knowledgeable, kind, had an easy sense of humor, and went to great lengths to customize the trip to our preferences. He has inside information about some of the distilleries and it was clear that folks at each of the distilleries knew him well. His explanations of Scotch whisky, ability to get us a few free drams, and his willingness to share some drams of interesting whisky from his own personal collection added a personal touch that made the whole day spectacular. We won’t forget our day with Gavin anytime soon. Can’t recommend enough.
Amazing Tour Guide
Darlene_J, Sep 2023
We had so much fun with Gavin. He made the entire experience, from planning to execution, so easy. From pick up to drop off he ensured we had the best day. It is obvious he loves what he does and passes that joy in to his clients. If we’re ever lucky enough to come back to Inverness we wouldn’t hesitate to do another tour with him.
Highlight of tour of scotland
andrew_m, Sep 2023
Liam was a fantastic tour guide for whiskey. He shared his knowledge of whisky and of Scotland it self. He assisted and worked with us making the day fun, relaxing and stress free. Would recommend anyone who is interested in scotch and regional history. Fantastic
A delightfully wonderful experience.
Greg_B, Aug 2023
We spent a wonderful day with Liam who on our way to the first distillery educated us on how whisky in Scotland is made. That was very helpful to understand what we were about to taste on the tour. We also squeezed in a Gin distillery. The lunch stop at the Siding cafe was very unique and great food. Being able to taste the different whisky’s right from the source was awesome. Liam’s enthusiasm and knowledge of not only whisky but of the area and Scotland truly made our day and will not soon be forgotten! I would highly recommend this tour if your in Inverness.
Terrific whiskey tasting tour
Ronald_W, Aug 2023
Gavin was a terrific guide. His knowledge and background of whiskey and the whiskey making process was very helpful. He knew exactly which distilleries were the best to visit and helped us order tastings when we were stuck on what to taste. I would 100% recommend this tour.
Amazing outing!
Cameron_K, Jul 2023
An amazing day! Great host and tour guide! He gave us options and helped us choose based on our interests and helped educate us on the variety of whiskeys. My husband and I would highly recommend!

Great tour
Robert_B, Jun 2023
Liam was an excellent guide. He had a great knowledge of whisky. He knew the different distilleries quite well. One of the parts were the tailgate whisky tastings to expand our understanding of different whisky areas. Highly recommend this tour

10/10 for whiskey lovers
Brandon_V, May 2023
Liam was a wonderful tour guide from start to finish. We spent roughly 9 hours with him and every part was knowledge, fun, and memorable. His knowledge of whiskey was matched by his knowledge of Scotland, and specifically the areas we were exploring. His passion for this was very clear and made our time with him extremely memorable. I can’t recommend this tour enough if you are a whiskey lover!
A wonderful experience

Fantastic tour for those who enjoy and/or want to learn more about whiskey!
Jodi_C, Apr 2023
Liam was great as our guide. He was very knowledgeable about the entire distillery process, as well as about the different whiskeys. Prior to the day, we had good interactions with Gavin about which distilleries we were going to tour and they tailored it to our preferences, which was greatly appreciated. Overall, a fantastic day with 26 different whiskeys experienced!
Very interesting and...

Very interesting and informative. Would highly recomend this tour. Donald and Gavin were great. Donald even told us about some things on our itenerary to skip and some things to add. Always great to get a local perspective.

Best Private Whisky Tour
Beth_B, Jul 2022
Gavin deserves 10 or more stars. His charisma, attitude , and energy are amazing! We absolutely loved driving around to different distilleries learning and experiencing with him!
Invergordon Tours provides a value for the money tour

It was great to meet you and spend the day with you Theresa. I hope you enjoy the rest of your time in the UK. Take care and safe travels home. Thank you, Gavin
A top notch tour of Speyside
Austin_T, Mar 2022
We had an amazing day touring throughout Speyside. Gavin was truly awesome! He made the day fun and entertaining while also providing a top notch experience. Since we were less knowledgeable on the distilleries, he helped recommend a variety of options for us to choose from. We ended up going on some great distillery tours (at Glen Moray, Glenfarclas) as well a few tastings. As a bonus, Gavin provided a few extra whiskey and chocolate pairings for us. We would highly recommend this tour!
Response from Host, May 2022
You are too kind!!! It was a fun day in Speyside and hopefully you have a few more whiskies in your collection to enjoy now. I have new whiskies in mine so you’ll have to come back and share them with me. All the very best from the Scottish Highlands. Gavin
Favorite part of our trip!
Paige_F, Jun 2021
We had so much fun on our tour with Gavin. Before going on the tour we did not have much knowledge about whisky, but Gavin was so helpful and guided us in determining which types we preferred. Even though some of the distilleries weren't open yet due to Covid, Gavin planned a great itinerary for us. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area, it was our favorite part of our trip!
Best whisky distillery private tour
Wendy_C, Jun 2021
Gavin gives the best private tour for whisky distilleries. Gavin is incredibly knowledgable and gave us a fantastic day!!!
Fantastic experience
wam77339, Oct 2019
Absolutely fantastic experience with Gavin on a Speyside tour. After booking, Gavin answered promptly all the questions we had about booking various distillery tours and even made a couple phone calls and inquiries on our behalf for arrangements. He picked us up in a clean, well-maintained, and luxurious vehicle. We were driven safely to all of our tours. The real highlight was Gavin's excitement for his job and his knowledge of whisky, distilleries, and the area. He was engaging and lots of fun to talk to on the tour. I'd highly recommend him for Speyside or Highland tours. I will be recommending him to friends and colleagues headed to Scotland.
