  • Ability to hop off at any stop to explore further means a flexible itinerary
  • In-depth recorded commentary during the bus loop
  • Choose from 1- or 2-day ticket to fit your schedule and budget
What to Expect
With your tour voucher in hand, step aboard the bus at any of the stops in Glasgow. Choose a seat on the open top for panoramic views, or in the covered cabin to stay warm.

Alternatively, hop off at any stop you want to explore further, such as the Barras, Merchant City, Glasgow Cathedral, and George Square.

Very impressed with the tour. We knew that many places in Glasgow were closed prior to the tour starting so didn’t expect to get off the bus at any point. We had Campbell (a proper Glaswegian!) sharing his knowledge of the city- it was great because we were stopped at traffic
