it works out better value to buy the two day ticket (£1:00) extra & is well worth it & if you can try & get the tours with the tour guides on a lot more entertaining

Hello thanks for taking the time to review the tour. I'm not 100% sure if you refer to the ease of understanding of the tour guides or the multilingual headphone system installed on the buses - although I think it is the latter. All vehicles...More

After finally finding the closest stop we then learnt that they don't take card so had to miss that bus. I'm glad we weren't perturbed as it was worth it. Headphones provided allowed us to listen to a relatively interesting narrative. Relatively comfy seats. A...More

Get around Glasgow using the open top bus service is the easiest option. Takes in all the places of interest, pay the extra pound to use your ticket over 24hrs. The guides are very informative.
