Give you a good tour of the City - there are enough bus to hop on and off to visit some of the attractions. Grab a leaflet to plan and would suggest the 2 days tickets if you have time

This was one of the best hop on-hop off (HOHO) tours I have ever experienced. It covers every one of Glasgow's important sites and neighborhoods in 21 well-planned stops. Include an entertaining and insightful audio tour from Scottish historian and broadcaster Neil Oliver and you are set for a great day (14.00) - or two (16.00). The tour can be... More

I went on a sightseeing tour with my brother and grandparents. It was our first time on a sightseeing tour. As this is a hop on - hop off bus, we stopped at the People's Palace for lunch, and got back on to go to the Riverside Museum. It was very windy but that didn't matter as you can't change... More

I use this station every day to go to and from work, as well at weekends and evenings when socialising or going to an evening venue. Lots of rather handsome policemen usually there too. 😘😘😘😍😍😍

Hi, we'll take your 5 star review with gratitude..... but are you sure you have left in the correct category?perhaps, of course, you meant to type "handsome bus drivers" rather than policemen in which case on behalf of our team ... thanks! all the best Jono City Sightseeing Glasgow More

This is really the only game in town but if we had to do it over again, we probably would have taken a taxi or Uber. The buses were not comfortable and the drivers kept missing out stop even though we repeatedly rang the call button. Bus drivers were a mixed bag, some friendly some quite rude. Their online app...

We arrived in good time for the 11.30 tour and enjoyed chatting to Mark (Mack?) who was very friendly, issued our tickets and explained what would happen. On the bus there are only a few upstairs seats under cover but there was space there for our two bags, which was very helpful. I always worry that a pre-recorded commentary could... More

Hello there, thanks for your review of our tour, and recognition for Mark.

We decided on the City Sightseeing tour of Glasgow as a group of 12 people for my 50th birthday Friday 24th March. Our group consisted of friends from Germany, France, England and Scotland and with multi lingual translations was a good choice for a day out to learn the history of Glasgow.

Recently traveled to Glasgow with my husband and there was just so much to see we didn't know where to start.

Hi, thanks for your 5 star review. I'm really sorry you found a couple of faulty sockets - the buses are checked regularly but sometimes can break in between.

You plug in some earphones and as the buis drives round the city, the audio commentary tells you about the area. It was very interesting and is also a useful trip to book if there are multiple sights you want to see. Although I initially thought it was expensive for a bus ticket, it's totally worth the money. I would... More
