Another City Sightseeing excursion that's right on time and right on the money! Clean buses, courteous staff, extremely punctual. A 2 day ticket cost only 15 pounds (with senior discount), it gave us a nice overview of major points of interest in the city, and then the means to go back to those we wanted to visit on an extended...

Excellent tour, good value and really interesting. I felt I learned a lot during the 1hr20min tour which had excellent commentary from the BBC'S Neil Oliver. Loads of historical information but a few stories thrown in to add to the tour. Brings you through the Style Mile, the cathederal, West End, along the Clyde and to the Central George Square....

An excellent value for money way of seeing Glasgow for the first time. From the very helpful and informative Tour Agent in George Square to the commentary by Neil Oliver the service couldn't be faulted. The real selling point is that you can hop on and off as many times as you like with the knowledge that the bus keeps... More

We often use these tours when visiting new places as it gives a great overview of the city and an interesting commentary on its history. Really helped us get 'into' Glasgow. 2-day ticket well worth the extra £2. Be careful in winter as buses runs less often. All stops give clear times although the bus was usually 5/10 mins later...

We came several time to the bus stop 3-5 minutes before the timetabled time and always waited more than 10 minutes unfortunately in freezing cold! Otherwise very good headsets that enabled us to understand everything from the tour guide

I decided I would take the Glasgow Tour Bus yesterday whilst John was on business. It was a dull old day and my feet were aching so it sounded like the perfect way to have a whistle stop view of Glasgow as we were only there for 24 hours. It took 1 hour and 20 minutes. The bus was clean,... More
