First let me say a big thank you to all on the Glasgow forum who have helped me with my planning thus far.. everyone one of you have been great and I do so appreciate you taking the time help me out.
Now with that out of the way here are my questions.
#1 ~ I was wondering what is the average cost of getting a taxi at the airport to get me into Glasgow to the Blythswood Square hotel. I have received an email from them as to a private transfer but lets just say it seemed a bit steep. I am not cheap but I usually liked to be kissed before someone does that to me.
#2 ~ Tipping is it basically the same as my normal practice 15-20% at restaurants, 10-15% for taxi's, 2-3 euro's per bag for the bellman at the hotel etc.etc.
#3 ~ Are there any specific Do's & Don'ts one should be aware of when visiting Glasgow as a visitor (as an example in some countries it is a big Don't plan on visiting museums on a Monday and Do try the local wines) I always feel it is my responsibility to make sure I am observant of local customs and habits when traveling. After all I am the visitor to your fair city and one should always show as much respect as possible.
Again thanks for all the help really looking forward to landing Sunday and my short stay in Glasgow.
