Our group of three teens and one adult only had two days in Glasgow and different agendas. The bus tour allowed us to prioritize what we wanted to see and not worry about how to get there without wasting time navigating. The extra information we learned on the way with the audio tour was great. After hearing the same info a few times over the 2 days the information stuck. The live tours were even better as all the guides brought their personal touch. All of the guides were so helpful and looked out for their passengers. I felt safe letting my older teens get off to visit attractions that I didn't want to see and it was easy to meet them later on the bus. The attractions the tour provided were so well chosen. It checked all our boxes.

The arrangements in Glasgow suited us just right. It gave us a good insight into the city as well as a way to get round the sights at our leisure. With the 2 day ticket we could take our time and plan what we wanted to see in more detail later in our stay. The guides we're knowledgeable and entertaining and made us feel welcome.

This is a great option to get to know the city and to work out which sites you want to spend time at during your time here. Loved being able to listen to the commentary at each point around the point.

Only had a few hours to explore Glasgow. This was the perfect activity to see the city. Highly recommend!

Highly recommended Stress free exploration of the city
