    I took my two young grandsons on this trip they were so excited when they seen the bus. Although the tour was a bit different just now with COVID situation , we were unable to visit some places, but was still a great tour.. I come from Glasgow but I learned so much from the tour, now I can go back on foot and visit some museums I didn’t know existed, the guide was absolutely brilliant, a lovely man .i would recommend this trip as a fun day out .

    The actual tour was great when I sat up top because I could hear the audio well. Downstairs the audio competed with the bus engine. Please put the times for each stop on your website. I started at the Kelvingrove Museum; because the weather was poor I didn’t want to stand there for a long time.

    I bought the ticket easily online and was very pleased with the service. Bus stops were easily recognisable with timetables at all stops. Buses were on time and equipped with headphones so you can listen to the excellent narration. Only wish the route was a two way direction, as we couldn't use for some bits. Hence 4 stars.
