    Excellent Guide, Zhanna!
    Zhanna our tour guide was AMAZING!!! She was so knowledgable and held our interest the whole time. She know Glasgow well and took us to the well know spots as well as the best kept secrets. She escorted us around the city to give us the history along with pointed out the important sites. The vista points were incredible. She made our short trip to Glasgow so memorable and because of her, we want to return for a longer visit.

    Absolutely amazing!
    We had a great driving tour around Glasgow. Our guide, Zhanna, accomplished her objective brilliantly: to show us the most beautiful historical places in Glasgow, together with clear and entertaining explanations about the main historical periods of Glasgow. She was professional and really nice. We couldn’t have had a better guide! We will absolutely recommend this experience to our friends.

    Wonderful private tour of Glasgow
    We had booked a walking tour with Glasgow Private Tours and had Scott as our tour guide. Scott is a very accommodating and understanding tour guide. Even with a group of 14 peoples with all different age ranges from toddlers to seniors, he was adhere to our needs and be flexible. He was very passionate about Glasgow and showed great knowledge about the city. Overall we had a wonderful time with Scott and I would recommend him through Glasgow Private Tours.

    Amazing Tour of Glasgow
    So informative! I sadly forgot our guide’s name (he is Irish - maybe Scott?) but he was fabulous. So glad that we took the tour. It gave me a new appreciation for the city. We had a great time.

    Great overview of the city
    Molly took us on a walking tour across Glasgow. We learned so much. Without this tour, we would have missed out on some of the city's history and culture. Generally, I've found most guides are middle-aged or older. Molly is a university student, and my college-student children really enjoyed her perspectives.

    Great tour!
    We loved our tour with Zhanna. It was super informative and fun! She was so sweet and knowledgeable. We learned a lot and enjoyed walking around the city with her. It’s great way to see a lot of sites at once while learning the rich history of Glasgow.

    The most useless waste of 185 pounds in my life
    Booked a fully prepaid tour but wasn't able to get to it on time due to a snow storm that closed the Glasgow airport that night. So I spent ten hours watching news at the airport on Islay and paid 185 pounds to Glasgow Private Tours for the privilege (after a presumably routine day trip from Glasgow to see a distillery). Never before have I been denied a full refund when a _local_ weather event prevented customers from reaching the place through no fault of their own, even when dealing with the most upscale establishments with the strictest cancellation policies. To their credit, they did offer to refund half of it, which I refused. Granted, the cancellation policy is explicitly stated on their website, hence two stars and not one. Either way, I wouldn't recommend booking a tour with them until you're physically standing next to the tour's starting point. Definitely the lowest point of our ten-day trip to Scotland.

    The best walking tour!
    Molly is truly a gem and I feel so fortunate to have been able to meet her while in Glasgow. She knows the precise details of so many historical events in Glasgow—it is exceptionally impressive. I unfortunately got the exact kind of weather one would expect in Scotland in late September during my stay there, and yet she made a 4 hour walking tour 100% worth it.

    Our guide gave us a great private tour of historic Glasgow. We were rather surprised at her depth of knowledge, and facts at her fingertips whenever we asked a question. Really good!

We took the half-day cultural tour with Haley. She was very knowledgeable and personable. She used a unique approach of using the museum exhibits as a way to provide an overview of the history of Glasgow. We strolled through the Botanic garden, and the West End neighborhood, and enjoyed it so much that we returned to that neighborhood for our last dinner in Scotland.

What a place and what exhibits, simply marvellous and any trip to Glasgow must include two or three hours in here AND ITS FREE OF CHARGE. We would say that any trip to The UK MUST include Scotland and any trip to that wonderful country MUST include Glasgow. So much to see and do. Great, great, great. We will be back.
