Great attraction even if you are not a fan of whisky. The tour is great value for money. The guide is knowledgable and keeps things entertaining. You get a free glass, a voucher for the gift shop and sample two different whiskies. Bargain

Great whisky distillery tour! Informative and entraining guide. I have not been a fan of whisky in the past, but I like the Little Bay whisky. Probably not for children. Excellent tour!

I’m sorry I can’t really answer that as we are English. The other couple on the tour were from Belgium but their English was excellent so the guide only spoke in English but I’m sure if you emailed them they would be able... More
