Only £12 for a sightseeing tour with knowledgeable guide. Glasgow is big and this tour really gives you a vision of how it set up.

I took a city tour my first day in Glasgow. It was worth going round a second time as there is so much to discover about this welcoming historical city. Getting a two day pass is good value but I had plans to get out of the city on day two. Informative guides and the pre recorded commentray is good... More

Some previous reviewers have thought this tour too expensive at £12 for one day or £14 for two days, but I found it great value especially when compared to tours in Oslo at more than $40 or London (more than £20). The route covers most of the main points of interest, it runs about every 15 minutes and the staff... More

I have lived in Glasgow all my life and thought I knew a great deal about the city but after going on the city tour today I learned a lot more. I thoroughly enjoyed this most informative and interesting tour made more enjoyable by an excellent tour guide, Hannah. The tour lasts just under 2 hours and covers all the... More

An excellent way to experience the wonderful city of Glasgow is the Hop on Hop off City Sightseeing tour! It offers a great panoramic view of Glasgow and to do it full justice, if you can, purchase the 2 day ticket. Believe me to be able to visit the stops on offer you're going to need two days...even then, your... More

This tour is an excellent way to learn about the city and the commentary is very good. The only criticism is that at almost 2 hours the tour goes on too long. If we had been in Glasgow for 2 days we would have probably split it into 2 sections. It does take you all over the city and you... More

We used the bus for one day. It had a good route and went past most of the major attractions. The last bus was about 1700. The route had been modified for some reason and the bus stops on the modified route were not clear. The busses went in a circle clockwise around the route and might have been better... More

We went to see Galapagos in 3D at the Glasgow IMAX last month and when we came out it was a glorious day. I saw the Glasgow Sightseeing Tour bus disappearing out of the car park. I checked for the next one and 20 minutes later we were on it. I come from Glasgow but live in Ayr and often... More
