Glasgow is Great!

Loved our tour with Hailey! From start to finish was excellent all around. Our driver from the port, Mark was professional and super nice. He even stopped at his fave pastry place and brought us something for the ride back to the ship! Hailey was so knowledgeable and passionate about her transplanted home. We experienced all of Scotland weather in half a day, rain, wind, cloud, more rain then sunshine! Hailey made the history of Glasgow come alive and we truly loved the city. The humorous anecdotes that were interspersed meant you were never bored.

Walking tour of Glasglow

Our tour guide, Greg Barrowmen, did an outstanding job as he guided us through the high points of Glasglow. He was very happy to share the history and the love of his city with us, but, even more importantly, he was very attentive to the needs of our group, two of whom had difficulty walking in some of the hilly areas.

Very pleasant tour . Knowledgeable guide named Johnny . He was very accommodating and pleasant when questions asked and when weather changed every three minutes . It is a long walking tour . . Don’t take it if you are just stepping off a plane after 8 hours .

Our guide was Elsa. We were very impressed with her great knowledge of the city and its history. The tour consisted of many interesting places. We chose to take the tour the first day we were in Glasgow, and it gave us a good overview of the city center while learning about the city's history. Elsa was just so sweet and friendly and we would definitely recommend this tour and Elsa as a guide.

Our Tour Guide Zhanna met us at the train station and took us on a wonderful walking tour of Glasgow. She kept the pace to our liking, stopping longer at certain places we found particularly interesting and moving along in others. If you only have a few hours to spend, this tour is for you. Zhanna is extremely knowledgeable, has a great sense of humor, and made certain that we had recommendations for shopping and lunch after our tour was over. We were also treated to a little tea break which gave us an opportunity to rest a bit in the middle of the tour.

We're so glad you enjoyed your tour with Zhanna - it really means a lot to us! Come back and visit our wonderful city again in the future
