My family and I enjoyed the tour so much! it is so convenient to view everything in one round and decide to visit the places at your convenience! Would definitely recommend taking the tour with the Britannia Yacht as it is absolutely worth every penny!!

Rainy afternoon well spent. Found out how everything is brewed at the destillery. Very modern facilities as they opened 2019. Tastings and jokes included. Location is a little outside of tourist areas but it's worth the walk! Highly recommended!

So blessed to have gotten the tickets on two rainy, rainy days. Gave us a great view of the city without getting wet. Easy ride, informative….would definitely recommend!

It was great. We missed our first meet time and they got us into the 4:00 Tastings were good. Guide was a wealth of information.

Excellent choice if you want to see as much of the city as possible in a short period of time
