A fabulous tour. Informative and interesting. A great way to get to know and see the city. I’m from Glasgow and felt even prouder by the end of the tour. Perfect length of time and a compact, well paced walk to each site. Thoroughly recommend this tour and great value for money

Our guide, Caron, was great! She met us on time, at the meeting point and was easy to spot. She was knowledgeable about the city, enthusiastic in her delivery and thoughtful eg in relation to any Covid concerns we might have. It was great to be taken to see the highlights of the city. We love the architecture, the murals and the necropolis was particularly fascinating - like something from a film set!

The guide was on time and easy to locate, which was a good start. We had been told to print off our booking, but this turned out not to be unnecessary, which was a slight irritation. Katrina was well versed in her subject, although, as always, she brought her own interpretation to the tour. It was a pity that some things were not open because of Coronavirus restrictions, but that did not dampen the tour in any way. Politics did play its part in the narrative of the tour, which was inevitable, but some people on the tour were not from the United Kingdom and were a bit baffled by this, I could tell. Certainly worth the money, nevertheless, and a good introduction to Glasgow for the first-time visitor.
