We spent a wonderful 3 hours with our guide, Doug, on a walking tour tasting whisky in Edinburgh. Doug gave us an immersion class in Scotch whiskey and threw in some Scottish history along the way. He made our journey enjoyable any relatable. We were so glad to get to know Doug and experience the things he loves about Edinburgh. We highly recommend booking him for any Edinburgh adventure.
