Craig was an excellent driver and guide. He booked tours and tastings for us and gave us lots of advise on which whiskeys to try and how to taste them. He made an excellent lunch reservation for us and made the whole day really enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this tour

This was excellent value for money as a way of getting to know the city quickly.

Loved this tour. Big fan of any hop-on hop-off tour, this one was no exception!!

A lovely, easy and convenient way to see the sights, especially on a rainy day!

We had a very enjoyable day and the bus drivers were extremely helpful.
