Customer Reviews

I was only 1 person on the tour, and I was so impressed that it was still running to accommodate only me. James did an amazing job as my tour guide! He's so funny and very informative. He also made me feel very at ease that I was the only person.

Murray was great - he knew his stuff but was fun at the same time!
Liz - 20/01/2016

Graham (Graeme?) was a great host - funny friendly and informative. As we were the only people on that tour, he was willing and able to adapt the tour to our particular needs.
Geoffrey - 19/01/2016

Our friendly, lovely, funny and competent guide Nicola! Her driving was excellent as well. Also the fact that you can make a tour like this within just a half day was very nice. We had only 2 whole and 2 half days in Glasgow and that's why a half day trip is a very good alternative. But next time I'll go for a longer one!
Iris - 06/01/2016

Our guide was funny and informative
Kathleen - 04/01/2016

Due to there only being the two of us on the tour, we were able to decide on a longer tour at the distillery. The driver was very flexible, friendly and had a lot of knowledge about the tour and was also able to answer all our questions about Glasgow, our next stop Edinburgh and other parts in Scotland.

Full Itinerary (English)

Departing from Glasgow city centre at 13.15 our leisurely afternoon tour starts by following the course of the Clyde, the river that made Glasgow great and once home to the shipyards and heavy manufacturing factories that forged Glasgow’s name as the second city of the British Empire. Leaving Glasgow we travel north into the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. This area of outstanding natural beauty straddles the cultural and physical boundaries of the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland and is now a managed and sustainable environment for visitors and local people, right on the doorstep of Glasgow. Here you can stroll along the shores of Loch Lomond in Balloch Country Park or soak up the atmosphere in the bars and restaurants at Loch Lomond Shores. From here we travel to the foot of the former volcanic plug at Dumgoyne Hill where we visit Glengoyne Whisky Distillery Experience. Glengoyne produces a Highland single malt from water that runs out of the volcanic rock behind the distillery. This tour allows you to experience the majesty of one of Scotland’s most famous Lochs and to round your afternoon off with a Dram of Whisky, the Water of Life, before returning to Glasgow for 18.00.
