The bus was on time, it was spotless and the driver was very friendly, polite and helpful. The tour was a great experience and a very good way to get to see the city, well worth going on.

Nice tour if you have never been, pointing to all free museums and other attractions

Provides a good overview of the city. Especially if you only have one day

Nice tour, around 2hrs long without much traffic so longer than stated

Buses pass many Glasgow attractions. Close to where I stayed
