As a Glaswegian who has lived abroad for many years but returns to the dear green place a few times a year, I thought I knew most of what there was to know about my city. How wrong can you be! The City Sightseeing Tour is a fantastic way to see the whole city in a day and to find... More

This was a great tour. The guide was really knowledgeable. I made a point of doing this on the first day so I could get a quick overview of all the high points from which I could then decide what to visit in greater detail for the duration of the trip. The hop-on/hop-off was a great feature. A really great... More

Our hotel was quite a way out of Glasgow city centre, so this seemed ideal for us to get into the city centre and visit some of the sites. We had a booking at 11am and so thought that the best option was to get an early bus in. We got there at about 9.15 and the timetable stated 1st... More

We enjoyed a two day tour of the city on the bus. The tour guide Campbell tempered his information with typical Glaswegian humour, very enjoyable! Bus stops at regular intervals at the various attractions made this an excellent way to see the city, unfortunately the weather wasn't kind and we missed out on some of the sights we wanted to...

Easy on and off, can go around to see full city. Headphones with good history. Clean and easy seating. Can see why this is a popular bus tour of the city...

We have just returned from a short break in Glasgow. As the local (Commonwealth Games invented?) catch phrase goes "People Make Glasgow". How true. What a great City and 'yes' the locals are friendly and dispelled any previous misconceptions. The City delivers on culture, sport (including the magnificent Commonwealth Games), entertainment, dining and then some. There is so much to... More

The scotish historian off the bbc does the voice over and it is very interesting. Staff are friendly and the buses come ever 15min at this time of year and it takes you to most of the large attractions. 14 quid for a 2 day ticket is good value as you can use it to get around and it gives... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour service. I was able to see the majority of things I wanted too. Unfortunately the Glasgow Cathedral was closed as the Commonwealth games had just finished and the city was being packed up and cleaned. I would recommend this to anyone that has a limited time in the city and wants to pack in as... More

On the first bus we had the audio tour and on the second we had the live tour. Both were good and informative . We should have used it more to get our money worth but would do it again to get around the city.
