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!

Although Glasgow is definitely not one of the most beautiful cities in the world, our guide Ian was definitely one of the best city guides in the world. His information, his wit and his ability to communicate make the tour a recommendable event.

Ian was an entertaining & knowledgeable guide about Glasgow. He made sure everyone in the group was with the group. He also gave some good spots to eat.

Super interesting tour, Ian was an excellent guide and gave us a great time. Perfect for discovering Glasgow, not to be missed under any circumstances!

A two hour walking tour of Glasgow that beautifully depicts the contrasts and evolution of this city.
