I was late due to train delays and Joan was very understanding and still accommodated the extra 20 mins for me even I told her she didn't have to. Joan gave me a good mix of history snd lifestyle around Glasgow and really made me appreciate the landmarks and the murals. She also has walked me around key streets of Glasgow so I know my way round. I was pleased with the recommendations of restaurants, cosy pubs, novelty bars and the mini exchange centre. Made a lot of mental notes of places I want to visit further in Glasgow. Joan was extremely pleasant and really took the time to help me get familiar with the place.

Great- gives you a clear overview of the whereabouts/distances when considering which places to visit. We bought one-day tickets and used it as a round trip and then paid an extra £1 to extend the ticket the next day to go and visit our chosen places.

Friendly staff and a very knowledgeable guide made it an enjoyable way to get our bearings around Glasgow and hear about the history of the city.

Very convenient to explore the city. The bus stops at more than 20 places. From there you can go in all directions.

Interesting city. Could have included more of the north. Botanical gardens, etc.
