What a great way to spend a wet afternoon in Glasgow being driven across the city in an original Routemaster bus and being served tea, coffee, cakes and sandwiches by a friendly and attentive crew. Eating and drinking when you’re on a moving bus can be challenging at times but it’s all about having fun.

We went for a tour to celebrate birthday of our friends. We spent some lovely time cruising around Edinburgh. There are vegan options so if you have any dietary requirements, the menu will be prepared for you. Just have to mention it when you book a space. Shemeck who helped to organise the birthday was top notch and served us surprise birthday cake.

My daughters had purchased this for me back in Feb and had to rebook after cancellations with lockdown which was not a problem. Myself, mum and 2 daughters eventually got to do it yesterday and what a great time we had. The food was lovely just right for an afternoon tea also plenty of refills if needed. Staff very friendly if I was to have one negative it would have been nice to hear some commentary of the old buildings not so much for us but for tourist. However it never took away from the day just a recommendation. Keep up the good work.
