“More than just whisky!”

“Ronnie created an experience for a group of 5 friends that created lifetime memories. The 3 night/4 day tour was beyond the amazing distillery visits and whisky tastings. He shared his extensive knowledge of all of Scotland’s diverse distilleries through his private collection and deep knowledge of the history. There was also time for great scenic visits, Scottish history, distillery politics/ownership/blender info and much more. Ronnie was also great helping with the planning of hotels along the routes and had great advice on restaurants for the evenings. He was flexible through all the changes due to Covid restrictions for travel and distillery openings with great communication throughout. If you take one thing with you to Scotland it should be Ronnie and all his experience!!! I can’t wait to go back!”

Best whisky experience It was a great whisky experience. I found Ronnie approachable, knowledgeable and a joy yo share whisky with. The arrangement was smooth and without any hiccups. Ronnie was prompt in replying to my emails and we had a phone conversation. He tailored the tour to my taste and ensured I would get most of it in terms of good whisky and education. I thought I knew a lot about whisky but I realised I had a lot to learn. The transport that was booked was very comfortable. Ronnie was right on time and he had brought a wide range of whiskies to taste. The distilleries were well chosen as he clearly knew them well. The journey to the distilleries was also a great one and there were many beautiful scenes to enjoy while tasting Ronnie's exotic drams.

Excellent Gold Tour We visited on Sunday 16th August 2021 and took the Gold Tour having been bought it as a treat from my children. Our tour was conducted by Lucy. She was informative and very attentive to the group and made the tour that bit more personal. The sampled whiskies were varied and excellent in taste. We would also like to say thank you to the male behind the bar who assisted Lucy and also looked after us and provided useful insight to what we were drinking and what to look for in a quality single malt. The tour takes up to 80 minutes but was well worth it. Excellent service and many thanks.

Unique and Informative Scotch tasting Highlands tour. Best highland scotch tasting experience you could ever ask for, Ronnie combined and extensive knowledge of whiskey and Scottish history to make an incredibly memorable trip to Scotland. Would recommend touring with Ronnie to anyone that wants a relaxed, informative, and comfortable tour. Had a one day tour of the highlands and two distilleries with Ronnie. He arranged the entire day, pick up at 8:30 am and dropped back at the hotel at 18:00. Travel accommodations were first rate - clean, comfortable, and a friendly chauffeur. Learned so much about how scotch whiskey is made, how to sample and savour the drink. The drive between distilleries was full of opportunities to see the highlands, and other sites, all the while sampling different and very high quality scotch whiskey.

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.
