Danielle_L

You’ll see the most popular sites in Glasgow on this tour and our guide was very knowledgeable. Note that you’ll just get an overview of the sites, won’t have much time to actually explore (ex we just saw the outside of the cathedral), but you’ll get a very good idea of what you want to go back to take a look at later.

Catrina was fantastic! She’s a born and bread Glaswegian and knew all the ins and outs of the city. We saw some of the murals and the old cathedral. I learned a lot about the city and want to learn more because of the tour! Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a short tour to give you an introduction to the city.

Stops you missing what you may do without a guide
Laura_M

Glasgow is promoted for tourism as much so we’re unsure exactly what sites were out there for us to see. This tour enabled us not only to see and learn about some of the important buildings but also allowed us to see and understand several of the beautiful murals in the city which we may have missed without this tour. Louise was a great guide who was really passionate about the city.
