Having just arrived in Glasgow I took the city tour first. This will give you an overview of the sights of Glasgow so you can decided on what you would like to return to in order to explore further. If you have time purchase the two day pass so you can get an overview one day and then return the... More

great way to get familiar with a city. Allows for seeing the highlights and deciding which places to hop on and off, or come back to. When short on time in a city, this saves time. If lucky enough to get a live narrator is much more interesting than the recorded highlights.

We bought a day ticket for the sightseeing bus and did a full circuit from our hotel in the West End before getting off close to the Tenement Museum. Luckily our bus had a 'live' guide (Katie) - both she and the driver were welcoming and very helpful. Good points: + Good way to orientate yourself quickly and decide where... More

It's a good idea to go on the tour when arriving in a city you don't know. You can get a ticket for one or two days and than you can hop off and on along the route which is a great way to see the city. You can either wear earphones which has different languages or someone who talk... More

jumped on the hop-on/hop-off bus tour in Glasgow and really enjoyed it. Such a great way to see the city and take in the museums. Make sure to sit on the top deck for the best views. Highly recommend this!

Our open top bus tour was a group booking during the late May Bank Holiday, so I cannot speak for the standard tour, but if it is similar then I highly recommend it. Chris, our tour guide, was a delight to listen to. His extensive knowledge, great sense of humour and banter with the equally excellent driver Alistair made the... More

I live in the city but decided this was something I should do to check it out for my visitors. It was ok and overall it did show off the city although pointing out the tenements in an area where the windows are extremely tatty might not be the best example to use ! I also think having come so... More

We did the City Sightseeing tour, so much to see. Our plan was to do the day trip by train. Fantastic, cosmopolitan and great shopping. Will stay longer.

I had previously been on this tour several years ago and was pleased it had been updated but at the same time retained many original stops. I had no time to make a stop but this is the way to find all the visitor attractions in Glasgow. The commentary was excellent and many things including murals are pointed out to... More

We got on one of the first buses of the day on Saturday and managed to get front seats on the top which was really beneficial. This is an ideal way to get around Glasgow and get to know some of the sights and also for inspiration on where else to visit whilst you're there. We got off to visit... More
