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

We bought a day pass and then paid £2 each to have it for another day. So easy to pick up around city. Hop off. Explore. Hop on. In my 40+ years I've never done one before. But so simple and cheap. One of our busses had a live host telling us more info. We'd already heard the prerecord end... More

Worthwhile had a great day mostly on the tour bus. Weather was drizzly but didn't dampen my spirits. All guides very knowledgeable I bought the 1 day pass and saw the 2 stops I had planned. Would recommend anyone visiting to get a sense of Glasgow.

We were visiting Glasgow with a child and exploring the city was a challenge. The city sight seeing tours was the best option as it provided the shelter from rain and cold as the visit coincided with poor weather. The fare of 12 GBP was well spent as the tickets are valid for two days. The tour offers commendatory in... More

We were able to have a 48 hours pass on the city sightseeing tour bus. Very interesting places to see and visit. The commentary gave lots of interesting facts and local knowledge of the area.
