Pamela_A, Jul 2022
This tour had everything you want: Someone leading the tour who genuinely loves their city and sees its flaws and strengths; a tour that interconnects the history, culture, language, and architecture of the city; and, a guide who is well versed in all of those areas and able to answer a menagerie of questions. And our tour guide had a great sense of humor. Loved the tour. Highly recommend it.
One of Glasgows best tours
Heather_C, Jul 2022
What a tour! I have forgotten the lovely, energetic and bubbly tour guides name but she did bring her adorable dog Martha with her, who was so calm and well behaved the full time. We had a easy going walking pace and it was a nice size group of around 15 people. We visited around 10-12 stops around Tollcross/merchant city way but the added bonus was being informed about the murals along the way, which we weren't expecting. The girl was super informative and could answer any questions any of us had. It was great value for money and to combine history and the murals in one tour, it was perfect!
Response from Host, Jul 2022
That would be Rachel! Martha is the best mascot we could ask for. We're so glad you had a good time Heather :)
Sense of the city

Great Tour
Danielle_L, May 2022
You’ll see the most popular sites in Glasgow on this tour and our guide was very knowledgeable. Note that you’ll just get an overview of the sites, won’t have much time to actually explore (ex we just saw the outside of the cathedral), but you’ll get a very good idea of what you want to go back to take a look at later.
