We travelled at different times across two days and had the freedom to get on and off at many interesting spots. The staff were very polite and informative throughout. We bought the two day family ticket for £33 - excellent value for money.

Wonderful way to get around the town and hear the history narrated while travelling. You can get off and check things out and get back on and go again. Great schedule for pick up times, so you don't have to wait too long. I recommend you scope out their travel map and figure out your stops, so you don't leave... More

£14 for as many hop on hop off stops you can fit in a day, coupled with lively commentary makes this tour excellent value. I had both the recorded and the live guide versions on different buses and I have to say as good as the recorded version is I love the personal observations and comments of the live drivers!...

My only criticism of this service is that pickup areas are not clearly labelled nor are the procedures to hail a tour bus (stick out your hand to flag down the bus at the unlabelled stops). Also providing hotels with maps of the stop points would be great. Aside from that, we met our bus at George Square, the main... More

hello. thanks for your review of our tour All of our stops are clearly marked with a brown "tour bus" logo at the bottom of each bus stop flag, and they also have a colourful advert within the timetable frame at all bus stops.

On my first trip to Glasgow we opted for this tour as a way of getting a feeling for the city as we were only there for the day. The staff were very friendly it was reasonably priced and basically did what it set out to do. We saw most of the sights we got on and off with ease... More

Hello Stephen, thanks for your review. I'm really glad you found we were good value for money and the staff were friendly. as mentioned in previous responses, the commentary is worked by the driver and sometimes can be slightly out of sync due to traffic flow although they work hard to minimise this. There is information on the football stadiums... More

We only had six days to show them as much as we could around Scotland so we again opted for this bus tour. This was the first tour we took with our guests,they were so impressed and we all... More

We only had one day in Glasgow, and this was the way to see the whole city and its sites. We got off at several sites and really enjoyed the tour guides.

Good tour and learned a lot of interesting things about my home city, was extremely disappointed that the tour did not take in the Burrell collection and even more so the Scotland Street School Museum, we were delighted that there was a bus every 10 minutes and we never had long to wait between stop offs, staff were all extremely...

No. We completed the tour twice hoping to catch what we missed the first time around. However the timing and descriptions were off on the automatic speech. "on your left is..." but when in reality it was still in front of the bus because of poor timing. There were also description of an art building that could be a briefly... More

Hello, thanks for taking the time to review our tour - even if your experience was not what we had hoped for. The multilingual commentary is operated by the driver who should time it in line with the attractions being passed. From time to time, with the flow of traffic, the commentary may be slightly out of sync, and this... More

Fab sightseeing bus open top you either get earphones or a guide takes around one hour 20 minutes but you can get off any 21 stops and jump back on whenever - very informative about Glasgow - lovely buildings and lovely staff - worth the ticket price
