An all inclusive guide service


Whisky - Tours - Cities - Towns - Locals - Pubs  

Join me, Jim Santangelo, on this week long trip throughout Scotland exploring the best parts of the city of Edinburgh and the Highlands of Whisky country.

I’ve had the opportunity to study whisky and guide folks throughout Scotland, now let me guide you to world renowned distilleries, historical sites, and the local characters we meet along the way.

You will be accompanied by both me and my colleague, Sydney Osmun, who coordinates trips from luxurious retreats in Mexico to push-your-limits high mountain excursions, so you’ll be in good hands!

“Join us on a trip that creates memories for a lifetime”

This is an all inclusive trip, but for airfare. We take care of housing, transportation, distillery & museum tours, and dozens of meals. 

SCOTLAND | 8 days

Whisky - Tours - Cities - Towns - Locals - Pubs  

Arrive in Edinburgh, Scotland. Two full days on foot touring the entire city from the historic Royal Mile to the modern Prince Street, enjoying museums, pubs, high tea, distilleries, and plenty of food. You’ll get to know the main streets to the back alleys of Edinburgh...

Then, we travel to St. Andrews, the birthplace of golf, edging our way up the countryside touring castles teetering on the cliff’s edge, finally resting your head in the Speyside, the heart of whisky country.

Once in Speyside, we discover where two-thirds of Scotland’s whisky is distilled. We tour the greatest distilleries and discover the unknown. You’ll have the chance to taste whisky dating back to your birth year, visit a cooperage learning the secrets of the whisky barrel, and travel to towns off-the-beaten path you won’t find on any other travel guide.

The days spent in the Speyside

are filled with the countryside, the people, the whisky, and the food. 

The tail end of the trip is spent in Inverness, looking for Nessy in Lochness, seeing critical battle sites in Scotland’s history of a nation, and walking through ancient burial grounds that’ll have you reaching for a dram in no time!
