    What to Expect
    City Centre Walking Tour - 10:30am & 2pm

    This is the only walking  tour in Glasgow that will take you around all the main sites of the city, giving you an excellent opportunity to get your bearings of the city and gain a lot of knowledge about its history and culture. The tour lasts approximately 2 hours and will incorporate a break to give you a chance to visit the Necropolis, as well as a tea/toilet break. It starts nice and early to give you a chance to go back to the places you loved after the tour and we will always give you recommendations on what we think you should visit after the tour.

    This shared tour will take a look at famous figures to Glasgow, such as St. Mungo, and their stories as we go through the city. Here's the sites we'll cover:

    George Square

    Glasgow Cathedral and Necropolis

    The People's Palace 

    Doulton Fountain

    Glasgow Green

    The Clyde


    The Duke of Wellington

    We will also explore some hidden treasures of the city:

    The Barrowlands Walkway

    The Barras

    The Clutha

    Templeton Factory

    Saint Andrews Cathedral

    Just arrive in the centre of George Square 5-10 minutes before the tour and you'll spot us with our bright orange umbrella/jackets. The tour will end at the Duke of Wellington statue, which is right next to George Square.

    4 of us where from Glasgow and 1 of us was from Delhi. I've been on many of these walking tours around europe and was looking foward to "doing our own city". It didn't disappoint ! Our tour guide Louise was excellent, very informative and made everyone feel very welcome on her
