Does what it says on the can

Good for familiarisation and a bit of history. Good value as ticket last 48 hours. A pre-recorded guided tour guides you round and is very clear.

Not a bad tour however I think it could have been extended by 30 mins. We had a friend drive us around after the tour and he added quite a bit more detail and extensive sights.

Hi thanks for taking the time to review our tour. We have trialled an extended tour (duration 1hr50 minutes) however customer feedback told us this was too long so we revised the route back to a duration of 80 minutes, which our customer research indicated was around the desired tour length. That said we appreciate all feedback and will keep... More

Easy way to see Glasgow and great that you can hop on and off during the day. You can buy tickets online (a little bit cheaper) or buy them on the bus. You don't need to have exact amount: the driver can give you change back. In-ear headphones provided by the bus and you get to choose between several languages... More

Glasgow is, in my opinion, an underrated City with some wonderful architecture. I recommend the open top bus tour which is very informative and relaxing. There are many museums available to visit apart from the various coffee shops and restaurants etc and interesting monuments not to mention the various bars featuring live music. We were only there a few nights... More

Bus tour of Glasgow is a great way to see the sights, especially from the top deck. I would recommend it to visitors to Glasgow. It lasts over an hour (if you don't get off to explore a particular place) but you can hop on and off as you please. During the summer the frequency is roughly every ten minutes.

The tour bus is a an excellent way to become oriented with the city. The cost, especially the 2 day ticket, is excellent value.
