A great way to see a city
This is the perfect way to explore any city. Whenever we're in a new city we book a bus tour and Glasgow was no exception.
We spent a day hopping on and off. The guides were all well informed. Some buses didn't have a guide and on those the recorded commentary was great.
Sadly, lots of Glasgow's museums and galleries are closed due to Covid and the upcoming COP21 summit so we were limited about what we could see. Live guides were better at informing us of this.

Great tour with great guide Donna!!!
Great Friday morning tour with the very informative Donna. Was great being on a tour with a local, the accent definitely adds to the experience. I did a full loop first of all before deciding where I would get off and investigate. A must for all Glasgow visitors even ones like me who have been there many many times, there’s always something to see and learn about.

A wonderful Tour
Sep 2021 • Solo
I had a great sightseeing bus tour of wonderful Glasgow with a great live cometary from a wonderful guide. He made us all laugh and a very knowledgeable man who brought the sites of Glasgow to life.

It is a great way to see all the wonderful sights Glasgow has to offer. I really enjoyed the tour very much and worth the money. I would highly recommend this a must do when in Glasgow.

Good - sometimes quite difficult to understand guide’s commentary on bus due to accent specially when talked quickly.

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you had such a long delay. Buses are often subject to unanticipated traffic issues and diversions but we are currently developing our website and hope soon to have a bus tracker capability so that customers can keep up to date on this in live time. We will also take on board your feedback regarding the commentary.

A great way to see, and move around, the city.
Oct 2021 • Family
We went as a family on the multi-lingual headphone tour. At time of review, it was pretty heavily history based and narrated by Neil Oliver (from Coast)

As a way to see the city, it's great. There's plenty of history of design, invention, arts throughout.

As we were with a wee one, it wasn't the best for them, perhaps the live tour would've been more captivating. The adults in the group enjoyed the history much more.

The route is good, covering many point along the Riverside like the museum and distillery and carving through the city, past the university, art college and suchiehall street for the shoppers.

Even if you don't listen to the tour, the views you can get from the roof are outstanding.

1 full lap takes an hour, generally buses arrive at the stops every half hour- 1 multilingual headphone tour, 1 live guided (in English, with a Glaswegian accent of course!)

The headphones provided are actually pretty good, good at sound cancelling (enough for free ones) but if you've small ears, you're better off with your own. It's a standard 3.5mm jack.

Languages are English, french, German, Italian, polish, Chinese and one other I've forgotten.

You can also hear the spooky ghost tour!

Good Value for Money
A good and cheap way to see the City which we used for two days.Over 20 stops , we decided to go all the way round initially and then over the two days visited the Riverside and Kelvingtove Museums and the Botanica Gardens.Excellent service and we even had a local tour guide on board telling us about the area.Excellent value for money.

A good way to get around
Sep 2021
Glasgow is changing and much of the old City is disappearing as it evolves into a modern vibrant metropolis. Yet, enough remains to provide a base for the history to be explained and these people do it well. Our guide was very good, humorous and well informed and she proved that this is indeed a very good way to get a quick grasp of the city if you are on a short stay. Glasgow is not on my list of favourite cities with large uninteresting heavily trafficked areas but this tour covers a lot of ground and they take you to all the major attractions and buildings and fill in the gaps with interesting history. Just a minor point, we didn’t get off the bus at all but we noticed that many of the stops were not well signed so it would be advisable to get familiar with them before you hop off and re-join. Well done guys, we enjoyed our trip.
