‘Informative and entertaining tour. Bought this trip as a present for my Dad. Both him and my Mum thoroughly enjoyed the Merchant City Tour and would highly recommend it to others. Very informative and found some old venues that they didn’t know existed or had forgotten about. Excellent gift.’ Rating 5/5

‘An excellent tour guided by exceedingly knowledgeable people. Loved the Panopticon and Barrowland information especially. Definitely one to recommend.’ Rating 5/5

‘Both tours excellent. We have now done both the Merchant City and Music Mile tours and enjoyed both greatly. Music Mile has excellent stories about the long lamented Apollo which are worth the ticket price alone! Enjoyed the stop for a refreshment in Nice ‘N’ Sleazy and of course the legendary King Tut’s! Great for Glaswegians and tourists, be great to take friends and family visiting the city. A must!’ Rating 5/5
