This is the way to take in Single Malts and Scotland. My wife and two of our close friends did a two-day tour with Ronnie last August and it was worth every minute and dollar. We organized our trip with Ronnie well in advance as he books up fast! Ronnie picked us up in a luxury van in Edinburgh and away we went for our two-day tour in the Highlands. Ronnie also supplied us with a list of accommodations so we could book our room for one night in Speyside. We chose the Station Hotel. We sampled many single malts at the distilleries and as an added bonus, Ronnie brought part of his collection along for us to sample while we learned a little bit of Scottish history along the way. We are already planning another tour to Islay with Ronnie in the near future. You will not be disappointed.

Ronnie Berri made my tour of Islay and Campbeltown fantastic! My friends and I had an incredible tour of Islay and Campbeltown distilleries with Ronnie Berri over five days. From day one I was impressed with Ronnie's attention to detail and his breadth and depth of knowledge of Scottish whisky and its history. He helped us plan out a fantastic itinerary, recommended the optimal places to stay and dine, and handled all of the logistics to get us from Edinburgh to Islay and Campbeltown and then back. While whisky was the impetus and focus, Ronnie imparted so much Scottish history along the way (driving from one location to another) that there was never a dull moment. I cannot wait for my next trip with him!

It doesn't get any better If you're looking to learn about Scotland and all things Whisky, it gets no better than Ronnie and his team at Scottish Whisky Tours. My friends and I were expertly toured around Islay, Campbeltown and the Highlands by Ronnie and Allan, over 4 informative and absolutely hilarious days. During that time we visited distilleries, historic castles, churches and burial sites, all tied together by Ronnie's deep knowledge of the land and its people. His experience and passion showed in every step of the way as he immersed us in the history and culture of each area we visited by delving into his inexhaustible collection of whiskies and anecdotes. Rugged landscapes and friendly people greeted us at every turn, the generosity of the whisky industry people we met was a testament to the high regard they all hold Ronnie. He's a Keeper of the Quaich and a Scottish Tourist Guide member, and those actually mean something. While on an impromptu drop in at the new Ardnahoe distillery, Ronnie's Keeper of the Quaich lapel pin was noticed by one of the staff, and we were whisked off for a cheeky tour and photo next to the spirit safe and one of the most amazing views on the Island - you literally cannot buy that kind of experience, it only comes from being with someone who has been in the industry for decades, like Ronnie has. Ronnie and his team picked us up each morning in a luxury van, treated us to many whiskies that are impossible to get here in the US and whisked us off on our curated tour for the day before dropping us back off again in the evening. There's plenty of downtime to explore your surroundings on your own too. We've already booked Ronnie again for 2021, and while I would love to keep him all to myself as Scotland's best kept secret, everyone deserves to have a life changing experience like a Scottish Whisky Tour with Ronnie

The best tourguide I could imagine for my trip! I have done 2 multi-day whisky tours with Ronnie, and they have been some of the most memorable experiences I could have imagined. My first trip was on my own for my 50th, and on the second I brought friends... because an experience like this has to be shared, much like the spirit itself is meant to be. Ronnie curates amazing experiences that combine an enduring appreciation of Whisky, with an in-depth historic knowledge of the country and areas you traverse. It’s absolutely phenomenal. My friends and I are planning our return trip in 2021, and each time we return, we book Ronnie for more days than the last. We simply can’t get enough. I highly encourage any who are looking for a guide to hire to stop here, book your tour with Ronnie, and then prepare for the time of your life.

An Unforgettable Day My father came to visit me in Edinburgh for my graduation. As a thank you for putting me through my master's degree, I surprised him with a day-trip with Ronnie. Ronnie was extremely helpful from the get-go: I wanted to be able to mix whisky tasting as well as sight-seeing as neither my father nor I have been to many places in Scotland. Ronnie came up with the perfect itinerary, allowing us to do all of the above within the space of a day. Ronnie is incredibly cultured, not just in terms of Scotch: he had a lot of UK related facts that were really interesting to hear. We loved getting to know Ronnie. My father is a fountain of knowledge himself, and initially I was worried that he would already know most of what was going to be shared with us. I couldn't have been more wrong! He was thrilled with all of the knowledge he acquired from Ronnie. My father is pretty hard to impress, but he was really blown away by this entire experience. I think that within itself highlights how good Ronnie is at what he does. If you want to explore Scotland and immerse yourself within the world of Scotch whisky - don't hesitate. Book a tour with Ronnie. It's well worth it. I'm so happy that I get to have these memories with my dad - all thanks to Ronnie.

חוויה מדהימה סיור במזקקות ויסקי תמיד נתפס אצלנו כמשהו ייחודי שהלואי ונגיע אליו מתישהו. בחרנו ברוני כמדריך לסיור על סמך המלצות שקראנו, והופתענו לגלות בשלבי התכנון שרוני ישראלי במקור ולמרות 30+ שנותיו בסקוטלנד העברית עדיין שגורה על שפתיו. רוני השכיל לבנות תוכנית סיור ייחודית עבורנו, מותאמת לטעם שלנו בויסקי, לרמת הידע שלנו בתחום ולרצון שלנו להעמיק אזורים מסויימים. סיירנו ביחד שלושה ימים מלאים, בלי אף רגע דל. התכנון היה מושלם וכל יום עלה על קודמו. בנוסף, היה מדהים לראות את רמת הידע של רוני בתחום, ואת הכבוד אותו רוכשים לו כל האנשים שפגשנו באתרים השונים. פשוט נפלא.

Ronnie Berri – Your Very Best Guide To Scotland’s Magnificent Single Malt Whisky, History And Scenic Majesty My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and having visited many places over the years, wanted a totally new experience. Several destinations were discussed when one captured our imagination. Scotland! We chose to start in Edinburgh then journey to Islay, the island famous for its whisky distilleries, beautiful scenery and historical sites, then return to Edinburgh. Finally, not entirely comfortable with driving on Scotland’s “side of the road” we decided a tour would be our best bet. We researched several options from groups to individual guides. After several inquires, one response clearly carried the day. Ronnie Berri – Scottish Whisky Tours. scottishwhiskytours.co.uk Ronnie’s qualifications and credentials both as a master of all things single malt and Scottish tour guide are unsurpassed. From Keeper of the Quaich, the designation that shows his extensive knowledge and commitment to Scotch Whisky to Blue Badge Guide, an official professional tourist guide of the United Kingdom. More importantly, Ronnie has the amazing ability to share his knowledge and passion. From our first email correspondence to his captivating narration of history, culture and geography ending with the last tasting from his extensive collection of rare single malts that he generously pours and explains along the journey, Ronnie is the most engaging mentor. As we travelled, Ronnie became more than a “guide”, he became a friend who had made this journey many times before us.

Masterful journey We were intrigued by the prospect of spending some time with a whisky master. True to his word, he brought along some of the best whiskeys from his collection, to sample. We imbibed the elixir of the gods, with alacrity. Ronni also proved very knowledgeable about the areas we visited as well as the distilleries which formed part of the tour. He dropped us back to our accommodation and was very helpful in locating our apartment. All in all, a very enjoyable experience! Sharmini and Michael Szymanski

Lovely day exploring Scotland and expanding our Scotch Whisky Knowledge Ronnie truly goes above and beyond for his clients. We spent a day with him in early October and learned much about the whisky making process as well as a bit of Scottish history. My husband and I are novice Scotch Whisky drinkers however Ronnie was incredibly patient and thorough as he educated us throughout the day. I had not slept well the night before so I was a bit sleepy between stops-I felt terribly rude but Ronnie took it in stride. He made sure our day was full with two distillery stops (well 3 but we only did tastings at two) and lots of beautiful views as we drove in the Scottish Highlands. Ronnie has an impressive personal collection and he generously shares this throughout the day along with many tidbits about the scotch making process and the different distilleries all while pointing out interesting sites and history. He really is a wealth of knowledge and a gracious host! We are so glad we chose to take the tour; we found the value of having Ronnie and his driver tour us around exceeded our expectations. It was easy to book the trip and Ronnie provides door to door service so you can relax and enjoy. We definitley would recommend Ronnie to anyone looking to take a Scotch Whisky tour.

Fantastic Whisky Tour There were three of us that went exclusively to do a whisky tour with Ronnie after reading the rave reviews he had gotten on TripAdvisor. Though the bar had been set high due to all the positive reviews, Ronnie still managed to exceed our expectations. Anyone would be hard pressed to find a more knowledgeable guide, both in terms of whisky and its production and familiarity with the area in which we toured and its history. We learned a lot, and tasted a huge variety of great and unusual whiskies from his personal collection. I cannot recommend Ronnie enough.
