I got the tour as a gift but I will definitely be taking in the other tour that these guys provide. Me and my son did the music mile tour and as a lover of music and a proud Glaswegian it was great to hear the stories of so many of the present and long gone venues in Glasgow. So if you are visiting the city or like myself a local sign up and spend a couple of enjoyable hours around our wonderful city in the safe hands of passionate music guides.

What a fantastic afternoon out!! Our guide (Phil) was so knowledgeable and passionate about the Glasgow music scene through the ages, his enthusiasm was infectious. It was partly a trip down memory lane to my teenage years at The Apollo, Tiffany’s and Barrowland, but also brought to life some of the legendary gigs of yesteryear and the more recent superstar discoveries who made their debuts in Glasgow. A thoroughly enjoyable tour that I would recommend to anyone who loves music.

The tour guide was really welcoming, enthusiastic and really knew his stuff. He made it so interesting and engaging. It was really fascinating finding out about all the world famous music stars that have had gigs in the city over the years. I would love to do the other tour when I'm next in Glasgow.

One word of warning; it can get a bit chilly/rainy even in the summer months, then sometimes the sun comes out again, so bring a jacket/coat that you can slip on and off or easily carry.

Phil was a wonderful guide for our tour of Glasgow music venues past and present. The fascinating oral history was conveyed with energy and enthusiasm. Phil clearly knows his stuff and takes pleasure in sharing it with others. A great time was had by all.

As a big fan of the Glasgow music scene I have wanted to take this tour for some time. I wasn’t disappointed as the guide explained how things moved from the Empire to the Odeon to the Apollo and up to the more recent venues. Despite King Tuts still being closed it was good to get access to the venue at Nice N Sleazy’s. The guide was also mindful of the weather and found us shelter wherever possible. I also enjoyed sharing memories with guide throughout the tour.

Enthusiastic, entertaining, a must for all music lovers and a way of bringing all the music that had originated in the city ...or just passed through it, to life.
Phil, our guide is a great and entertaining authority on everything that's ever happened in the city.

We booked for a private tour with Fiona and despite the wind and rain, Fiona was a ray of sunshine. Brilliant tour, so interesting not just the bands who played at the venues but also the history of Glasgow. Loved the old photos that Fiona brought to show what it was like in the old days. Thoroughly recommend this tour, great value for money and even though it rained, lots of opportunities to stay out of the rain. Refueled in Nice and Sleazy’s, King Tuts was fab, could just feel the atmosphere, brilliant.

This tour is a must-see for anyone with an interest in music. Fiona is the best possible host - friendly, informative, entertaining. She tells a great yarn in her warm, conversational style. Highly recommended! (Particularly if you're missing live music as much as I am).
