The best way to explore Glasgow is on foot. You'd be hard-pressed to get lost in the grid-like system of its streets, so our advice is to grab a map and set out sightseeing. Traffic and parking can be difficult in the city center, so if you'd prefer to travel at a faster pace, then the bus and subway network is cheap, easy, and reaches all the main sights. You can even grab a bus tour to get your bearings at the start of your trip.
A long weekend in Glasgow would give you enough time to sample the city's highlights. But you're sure to fall in love with the vibrant life of its streets, so if you've got the time, why not have a longer stay?

What People Are Saying About Glasgow
Tour guide did not even bother to introduce himself to us. On boarding the bus he told us that boat cruise was not happening because we did not have the numbers. We complained that we had paid for a full tour, and he had to spend time looking for a boat for us to get on. This infringed on our tour time. He didnt even know what time the castle closed. The castle was Ok, but was full of empty rooms. That didnt really appeal to me. In saying all the above, Loch Lamond was beautiful and really enjoyed that In saying the above,
Really interesting stories, appropriate and good mood creating music, wonderful mood, helpful and responsive guide.
It was a great experience to have the leisure of seeing castle, country, and cocktails. Our guide was wonderful and full of great information and energy. He had the perfect recommendations for lunch, what we should concentrate on seeing and how the day would go. I would recommend the tour if you only have a day.
Could have been luckier! Got the perfect weather to visit the castle. Stunning views, useful stops (drinks, food and, of course, toilets), lovely guides, dedicated personel wherever I looked. The strong Scottish pride showing off every step of the way, through people, places and, most of all, the stories they left their descendants with. Loved every moment of it!
The vehicle arrived right on time at 7.45am in the morning and started the journey without any delay at all. The driver and guide Tony was an excellent person who was very considerate of all the passengers. He was very clear in his instructions and explanations and also very polite and made all the passengers feel as if they're having a family trip. The vehicle was also very clean and comfortable and there was ample space for the fifteen sightseers. We did not feel that we have travelled for nearly twelve hours at a stretch, thanks to Tony and the Rabbies team. Keep up the good work. Best wishes!
