I got this for part of my wife’s Christmas and due to Covid we kept putting off booking and finally got in before the season ended. Fiona was really brilliant, so knowledgeable and entertained us with great music stories. We laughed a lot and interacting with the others in our group was so much fun after all the isolation of Covid it really cheered us up! Made us so proud of Glasgow which we love. Fantastic architecture and interesting locals to see. Learned so much and keen to do the other tour on Sauchiehall Street. Can’t recommend it highly enough 👍😁🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Excellent opportunity to see Glasgow with fresh eyes, especially if your a music lover. Great history of the music scene with a bit of politics to boot. Phil was an excellent host and thankfully we had lovely weather.

The tour guide (Phil, aka P9) is extremely knowledgeable about the Scottish music scene and Glasgow venues. This is a very entertaining tour. It “only” lasted two hours. It’s well worth the money. Phil kept us all entertained with his stories about Glasgow and the Paisley punk scene. There is something for everyone, including punk, vaudeville, folk and even social history.

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.

Very enjoyable tour despite the rain. Phil was an excellent guide and gave a good running commentry. He was very knowledgeable about the glasgow music scene. It was a pity that due to covid regulations we were unable to enter the venues. However, this didn't affect our enjoyment of the tour
