I was late due to train delays and Joan was very understanding and still accommodated the extra 20 mins for me even I told her she didn't have to. Joan gave me a good mix of history snd lifestyle around Glasgow and really made me appreciate the landmarks and the murals. She also has walked me around key streets of Glasgow so I know my way round. I was pleased with the recommendations of restaurants, cosy pubs, novelty bars and the mini exchange centre. Made a lot of mental notes of places I want to visit further in Glasgow. Joan was extremely pleasant and really took the time to help me get familiar with the place.

The tour was very enjoyable and interesting! Especially our guide Garry was great and funny and the mixture between stories, facts and jokes was very nice. Also, we very much enjoyed being only a little group of five people.

It was a great tour! The tour guide was really nice and knowledgeable (I can’t remember her name, she is from Italy) and the driver (Rob) was really kind. Was an amazing day

Simply great with Tobias. He told us a lot and fully responded to our requests. Thanks Norman

Very informative, the guide responded to our requests and took everyone with us
