We were only in Glasgow for the day , so this was a great overview of the city. Our commentator was very good always better to get a live one rather than headphones.

We chose the bus tour as it was a damp day with a chance of rain. Because of the weather we sat downstairs which was a shame as the view from the open top would have been better. There is a commentary pointing out places of interest and there is the opportunity to get on and off the bus at... More

Went on the tour with our friends who reside in lanark, first time for all of us. Great way to see the city, especially upper deck. Sunny day and perfect. 28stops hop on hop off if you choose to roam a bit. .

I write this review in respect of having been a pedestrian in Glasgow City Centre some months ago. I had been dropped off by my daughter on the opposite side of the road of where the City Sightseeing bus was parked. I crossed the road approx. 30ft from the bus just as it pulled out with a number of tourists... More

If you go with a tour guide it will be better. The drivers where not very happy and the only good thing was the ghoulish story's. And you have to see where you sit because the volume is not very loud.

We were excited to take the tour, because we have done these in the past. The guide on our first bus was a cantankerous lady who made several rude comments to a woman with 2 children, so we got off. The next bus was a multi-lingual, automated guide ... We didn't ride it for very long. Our last bus had... More

We love hop-on hop-off buses to get an overview of the city and found there were not "must see" sites in Glasgow so this worked great. There is an audio guide which is nice and we made a few stops at places that interested us. We were on a cruise ship so took the train from Greenock straight to Glasgow... More

I jumped on a City tour to get a lay of the land and find, in my jetlagged state, my hostel, a little out of town. The sales agent, guides and drivers were fantastic helping me navigate the city. They advised how to make the most of a two day tour tix in light of the next day's parade which... More
