Full day Glasgow City highlight tour with a mix of driving and walking


Glasgow has a wealth of museums and monuments, gardens and terraces as well as a vibrant city life. On this tour I will provide a taste of some of the highlights of this fantastic city.
Our walking tour will take in the heart of the city including Glasgow Cathedral, the Royal Concert Hall and George Square which has been used as a filming location for World War Z with Brad Pitt and the smash hit TV series "Outlander".
We will spend the second half of the day around the outskirts of the city viewing the museum's and concert halls before returning to your starting location.

Itinerary

From your pick up point we will head right into the heart of the city to start a walking tour taking in some fantastic buildings and locations including Glasgow Cathedral, George Square, Buchanan Galleries, The Royal Concert Hall, Sauchiehall Street and finally a bird's eye view of the city from one of the highest viewing points in the city.

We will then head back to our vehicle to go on a tour of the museum's, galleries and entertainment venues around the outskirts of the city. Many of these buildings could keep you busy for an entire day but you will get a taste of what Glasgow offers.
If you want to spend longer in any specific location just let me know and we will alter timings to suit. We will be taking a lot in, in a single day.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Airport, Hotel

End Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Airport, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

Duration: 8 hours

We could spend a full day in a few of the buildings if time was on our side but we would not get to see the entire tour. If there is a building or location you would like to spend more time in just let me know and we can alter timings to allow this

Transportation

The transport is a luxury 9 seater Mecedies Vito minibus but we will only carry up to 7 people to ensure everyone gets a fantastic view of our wonderful city.

What’s Included

  • Guiding Services
  • Private Transportation

Other: You are paying for the personal tour guide who will adapt the tour to meet all of your needs, the luxury transportation and the flexibility you would not be able to get from a standard tour package and the research used to create what I believe will be a perfect experience for you and your group. I will try and accommodate all requests before, during and indeed after the tour has been delivered.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

30 £ GBP - You will not need to spend any money to enjoy this tour but you may want to go into a couple of the museum's. Some of Glasgow's museum's are free entry.

What’s Extra

  • Personal Expenses
  • Souvenirs
  • Food, Drinks, Snacks

Other: There will be some limited hospitality as part of the tour but guests will have to pay entrance fees into museums etc as charged at the time. I will provide details as up to date as possible with regard to this.

Restrictions

I am not a licensed guide and will not be able to guide you inside the historic monuments, I will however accompany you and give you my insights where applicable.
