We did the tour on a Sunday when the buses ran every half hour. It was a great way to see the city in a day when we weren't sure about what to see, and didn't have a lot of prior knowledge about the city. Our first driver was really friendly and welcoming. The commentary is good and accurate for... More

A really great experience! You get to see all the things in the city, without knowing you wanted to see those things in the first place! Take the tour completely abs after that just hop off and on again! Can highly recommend!

We have used these franchised bus tours an many cities - as far afield as Sydney - and have never been disappointed. The Glasgow tour is in effect two circular routes centred on George Square. While Neil Oliver gives the English language commentary, on alternate buses (while we visited) there was a live commentary - which was excellent. The current... More

This is a great way to see the city and there are plenty of stops for you to hop on and off when you want. We took the bus with a live guide which was very good he told us a lot about the city and good places to go and see.

We took the 'jump on jump off' tour but having jumped on we stayed on for the complete tour - nearly 2 1/2hours. The commentator was Neil Oliver and it was just fascinating to hear the stories and see the views. A great way to get orientated to the city.

This tour earns five stars for several reasons: guide, Andy Stewart (same name as the famous Scottish singer!). picked up our group of four promptly at the Greenock dock. A life-long resident of Glasgow, he knew just where to take us for the highest interest. The Charles Rennie MacIntosh sites were especially terrific to see. Another special place he took... More

Probably the best way to get an overview of any city. The tour is reasonably priced and adding a second day makes it really excellent value for money. We had intended to stay on the bus for the full trip on day one but then hop on and off on day two but that idea died as soon as we... More

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.
