A Recent Review of this tour

Bill was very fun and personable. This was both a driving tour and walking tour. We drove around the outskirts of Glasgow and visited the Riverside Transportation Museum that was wonderful. We then went to the city center to visit many sights which included a ride on the subway. This is a very beautiful and historic city. The Beautiful Jaguar automobile was nice but this tour should really be for 3 or less people. The 4th person sits in an awkward position straddling the console.
