My husband I were visiting Edinburgh and took a day trip to Glasgow by bus from Edinburgh to Galsgow Buchanan Street, it was very convenient. Since we did not have too much time, we took city sightseeing tour. Whole trip takes about 2 hours. Perfect way to learn about the history of the city and visit highlights in limited time.... More

If time is against you and you are not really sure what you want to see, then get yourself a Red bus sightseeing ticket. The loops takes about 90 minutes, but shows off the best Glasgow has to offer. After the first loop, my wife and I (who only had a day in Glasgow) could zero in on what we'd... More

This is the very best way to get around the city and see the main sights. Especialy if it's your first time . Gives a good orientation and description. Then at the end you can go back and spend more time at places you like. Even get off and back on the busa at some stops.

The tour is an excellent way to see the highlights of the City that you wouldn't necessarily visit or find if you tried to explore for yourself. The guide, a medical student called Alistair, was really good - knowledgeable and amusing, keeping everyone interested and pointing out where there were free admissions or current exhibitions. Really enjoyed the tour and... More

My wife and I are currently enjoying a short City break in Glasgow and not being familiar with the city we decided to take advantage of the Hop On Hop Off Open Top Bus and opted for the 2 day ticket. Superb way to see the main city highlights and to orient oneself with the main City attractions. Tickets can... More

I wish we would have taken the tour the first thing we did after coming to Glasgow. It's a great overview of the city and you get a good idea of where you want to go and what you want to do. Since it's hop on hop off it's perfect if you have time to make spontaneous stops. The Riverside... More

Using this service in several European cities, I must say it's quite different. Initially quite hard to find, the tour takes some getting used to. Despite good commentary, stunning architecture and a thorough tour of the city, I was slightly underwhelmed. This is no slur on Glasgow, perhaps I am used to experiencing these tours in sunny climes. In spite... More
