I was late due to train delays and Joan was very understanding and still accommodated the extra 20 mins for me even I told her she didn't have to. Joan gave me a good mix of history snd lifestyle around Glasgow and really made me appreciate the landmarks and the murals. She also has walked me around key streets of Glasgow so I know my way round. I was pleased with the recommendations of restaurants, cosy pubs, novelty bars and the mini exchange centre. Made a lot of mental notes of places I want to visit further in Glasgow. Joan was extremely pleasant and really took the time to help me get familiar with the place.

The tour is informative and private with no other guests. The tour guide adjusts to the wishes and questions of the guests. But that's exactly what I expect from such a tour. So overall a very good alternative to the other tours. Glasgow is a young, lively and interesting city with an eventful history. So keep it up.

Seen nice places

Tobias is a nice guy. Has lived in Glasgow for a few years. His strong German accent reminded us of Werner Herzog. He occasionally had trouble with the English language, so it is not always easy to keep the attention. We got to know the city much better and in that sense it met expectations.
