Awesome and super insightful Experience!
, Aug 2022
How else would I have seen as much as I saw in Glasgow or even have better ideas as to the places to visit if I did not hop on this tour bus? Myself and 9 other friends thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The narrator on the train made it even more fun. I totally recommend this for anyone visiting Glasgow for a first time.
Glasgow Scotland

Great way to get around the city , we never had to wait long for a bus to come around again , there is one every 15 min , lots of information .
One of the wonderful...
, Jul 2022
One of the wonderful trips I have seen so far. I enjoyed the whole trip, most importantly it gives you freedom of hop on and hop off
Pretty Extensive Tour
, Jul 2022
You definitely see most of Glasgow on this bus. From downtown it takes you all the way out to the Riverside and Kelvingrove museums. Downside is it takes a while to get there as you pass through some of the less scenic parts of town. It would be nice is buses went in both directions instead of a one way loop, but nevertheless a good value and a good way to see a lot of Glasgow.
Fun in the sun in Glasgow
, Jul 2022
Visiting the Mackintosh display and the transport museum. Enjoyed the live commentary in the morning and missed it not being available in the evening.
Good Overview of Glasgow
, Jul 2022
The more than 20 stops on the route give one a very good overview of Glasgow. The voice on the the recording is pleasant and informative.
Must do
, Jul 2022
Another great VIATOR tour! These tours are a must when going to Glasgow…. Able to see all the sites and easy to hop on off
Amazing, breath taking
, Jul 2022
If you want to see the city of Glasgow & learn it’s history this is your is the best, got to the most beautiful views & learn about the beautiful culture and history
waste of money , can’t find the stops
, Jul 2022
Don’t waste your money . You can’t find any of the stops because they are so poorly marked. Stay in the main area instead and uber or taxi.
The perfect hosts!
, Jul 2022
We have gone on the Hop on Hop off trips in many cities. This was a completely wonderful and different experience in Glasgow. There were live hosts on all the buses we took that day. They were entertaining and informative! Glasgow has some wonderfully friendly people and they were great salespeople for the city. Loved it!
Big disappointment
, Jul 2022
Could not find a bus due to roads being closed for a parade.No information.Not happy after travelling from Greenock by taxi.Do we get a refund?
, Jun 2022
Loved the bus tour. The price for two days was not a lot more but I did it twice so it was fine. Weather was perfect for the open deck. Wish they had more stops.
If you go on the hop on/off Glasgow bus tour, but tickets directly from the bus company.
, Jun 2022
Although the hop on/off bus sells tickets on board, aviator makes you go retrieve the tickets to an out of the way location I NEVER found. The website does not give a street number. I ended up purchasing a ticked from the bus and DID NOT use the one I purchased from you. I wasted my money!

Glasgow by bus

Good way of seeing Glasgow, really flexible being able to pop on and pop off. The guide new her stuff as well, Which really helped. Good map provided as well.
Great way to see Glasgow
, May 2022
Glasgow Hop on and Off Bus was great! We were able to see so much more than we would have otherwise. They were so helpful!
Great way to find out about attractions around Glasgow.
, May 2022
This hop on hop off bus tour in Glasgow worked very well. The buses arrived regularly at the stops about every 15 minutes in our experience. The staff were very friendly and if you are lucky enough to have live commentary rather than the headphone variety, then that is very entertaining too.
Brilliant tour
, May 2022
Brilliant tour, craic was powerful from the driver and the guide, went back the second day and had the audio script and received a different worth while view in the tour - highly recommend 😊
Very easy to navigate...
, May 2022
Very easy to navigate through the city and get on and off the bus as many times as you want. The guides are all super informative and have great facts for you.
, Apr 2022
the 5 pounds over charge on ticket, over prized. Bus was clean and driver helpful. Good narrator on tape
Glasgow at its best
, Mar 2022
Good way to experience the city. The only drawback - one tour per hour . An issue once you stopped off somewhere but buses did keep to time.
