“Only worth it for a live tour guide”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

We did 75% of the tour on the first bus of the day - the tour guide was great! However, we when reboarded the bus later, only earbuds were available and several seats we tried would not work with the headphones. We gave up. For 11 pounds per person, expensive if the recorded tour doesn't work properly. We did get a one pound off coupon from our hotel, so ask at yours.

“Good way to get a feel of Glasgow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed the trip around Glasgow, the only complaint we had was the fact that the tickets are valid for two days and not 48 hours. We bought our tickets at 4pm, so lost out on a whole day. As it is low season, they should be reasonable! The tour is very interesting, and good value, providing you get the full two days.

“Great way to get the city highlights in a short time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Great way to get the city highlights in a short time at a reasonable time. Tour interesting with varied topics covered. Neil Oliver commentary a plus as his voice is very easy to listen to.

It was a very wet day and as this is not an uncommon occurance in Glasgow, a wiper on the front upper deck window would be good as was hard to see some of the attractions. Also a better demister for the windows!

The hop on hop off service so you can visit some of the attractions is great.

“Informative and good fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

This was one of the best tours I have been on, very interesting and I learned so much about Glasgow from a bus! The historical and sightseeing was a perfect way to see everything of note in Glasgow and hear interesting historical facts that are presented in a way that even children would enjoy. It has 22 stops that are conveniently located for shopping, monument touring, and restrooms.

“Great way to see the City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Pavement staff a little pushy - but we had decided we wanted to take the tour before they could do the 'hard-sell'. The tour of the city was excellent, very clear audio, the driver slowed down near points of interest and sped up on the open road. A very comprehensive tour with historical and modern day references to the sights. Highly recommend starting your tour of Glasgow with this tour as it gives you a bearing of the city and highlights other attractions which may be of interest.
