The City Sightseeing tour is a great way to see the highlights which you may want to visit further at another time. We liked the "hop on, hop off" plan. We could bypass sights not of interest and visit sights that were without being rushed. If you have time,I would recommend the two day tour.

Excellent potted history of Glasgow's history and recent renaissance in the shape of some amazing new architecture along the Clyde. A really good tour.

We took the 2 day tour. At the end of our first day we still hadn't visited all the sights so we did so day 2. Well worth the money.

Brilliant! We grabbed a two day ticket and were able to see so much of the beautiful city. There were something like 25 -28 stops and such a variety museums, parks, shopping strips, it was a great way to see Glasgow. We did the whole tour straight through and along the way planned where we liked to get off. The... More

Yes, this is "touristy" but if you are, in fact, a tourist then own it and take this tour. These buses are fantastic for getting a feel for the entire city, where everything is, while getting some history and other interesting tidbits. We had gorgeous weather while we were there which helped so we could sit upstairs and really soak... More

We took the 2 day option on the ticket, was great as you could do the city in 2 halves, we took the live guide buses, or fav guide was Campbell. Hop on hop off buses every 10 mins in the summer drivers were very helpful if you needed any advice on other places around the stops

A 1 or 2 day ticket expires 24 or 48 hours later. The full tour takes around 1hr 45mins depending on traffic. We did the whole tour and then hopped on and off to go to various things once we'd got our bearings. You get a booklet with a map and list of attractions with a short description. http://citysightseeingglasgow.co.uk/tour-map.html# It's... More

We have been on quite a few city tours and had an excuse to tour our own city with a visiting friend. Great way to tour - very frequent.
