See Glasgow - A magnificent Victorian City


Glasgow has been re- born from an old industrial city to a thriving bustling place with the old and the new. You will mix with Scots and will meet with them. They are a friendly lot and are always keen to meet travelers interested in the city. Glasgow is the second largest city in Scotland and was once the second city of the British Empire. Its slogan following The Commonwealth Games is "People make Glasgow".

It is a much larger city than Edinburgh which is Scotlands capital. Glasgow is in the west and Edinburgh in the east. They are 45 miles apart.

Please note the tour price is per tour and not per person.
