Our group of three teens and one adult only had two days in Glasgow and different agendas. The bus tour allowed us to prioritize what we wanted to see and not worry about how to get there without wasting time navigating. The extra information we learned on the way with the audio tour was great. After hearing the same info a few times over the 2 days the information stuck. The live tours were even better as all the guides brought their personal touch. All of the guides were so helpful and looked out for their passengers. I felt safe letting my older teens get off to visit attractions that I didn't want to see and it was easy to meet them later on the bus. The attractions the tour provided were so well chosen. It checked all our boxes.

This was fantastic. Easy to find meeting spot. Guide was theatrical, loud, and clear (no microphone necessary). He was extremely knowledgeable and appropriately paced. Dressed in a kilt and a native to the area, he had the scoop and a fantastic way of telling Glasgow’s story. At the end of the tour, he was able to recommend an authentic pub-The Pipers Pub- for our fish & chips lunch and a draft of ale. Great way to start our day. Thank you again!

Perfect trip, the hostess is informative, nice and cool I really enjoyed it. And I felt like I know everything to know about Glasgow

Wonderful way to see all the attractions that Glasgow has to offer.

Highly recommended Stress free exploration of the city
