“Decent city tour”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

If you are able to get a live guide, it's a much better tour. I enjoyed the west-end tour but the rest was a little dull.

“Hop on Hop off fun”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

The Glasgow Hop on, Hop Off bus tour is a great way to see the sights if you have limited time or to take you to places you want to spend more time investigating. Although I was brought up in Glasgow, the city has changed so much over the recent years that it is great to explore all the sights in a fun way. Commentary was good. The staff are friendly although we went on a showery day and sat upstairs and we got a bit wet as the window leaked but it was all part of the day and didn't detract from our trip out. Reasonably priced for what you can do. I would recommend it to visitors to Glasgow and you could link it to the Glasgow City Cruises which leaves from the Science Centre, City Centre or the Riverside Museum as this gives you a different view of the city from the River in relaxing surroundings with excellent commentary so you could hop off the bus and link in to this. Sadly the Cruises won't run between 21 July to 4 August due to the Commonwealth Games and Bells Bridge being closed but there are plenty of other dates you could still go. Either way, the bus is a good way to go exploring.

“Great way to see the city”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

Great way to get to some of the further out areas and attractions of Glasgow that are not so well served by public transport.

The city centre can all be done on foot but the hop on hop off is great if you have limited time and want to cover much more of the city.

“Excellent way to see this interesting city”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

This bus tour is and excellent way to see Glasgow. We have been to Glasgow many times but saw lots of very interesting places we had never seen before. Heather our tour guide was very informative and funny which was a nice change from the usual recorded commentary you sometimes get on these tours. Lots of stops to get off at and tour takes about 2 hours so good value or money.
