Ian was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable about Glasgow's past and present. I truly enjoyed his telling of the history of the Scottish kilt which he also wore. He has a theater background which helped to make sure that everyone could hear him. We were a group of at least 15 people. 2 hrs on this walking tour was not enough. The time went quickly as we were all engrossed in the information that he provided. I strongly recommend this tour as you explore this beautiful city. It's a great intro and you can't beat the price.

Unsure if were were on the exact right tour, as we paid for the tour, but the one we ended up going on was 'free' but the tour guide asked for donations. But the tour guide we did get was brilliant, it was very interesting as the history of glasgow was told like a story, and I never realised how much rich history there was in Glasgow. The tour guide was also really good at answering any questions anyone in the group had too.

This was a worthwhile walking tour - learnt so much about Glasgow's history from a well informed and entertaining guide. Well worth the two hours!

Ian was amazing!!! One of the best guides in any city we have ever had!!!

Excellent tour, very knowledgeable guide, great sense of humour
