Think you know Glasgow?
Hop on board today’s Handpicked Deal from Red Bus Bistro and see the city from a whole new perspective.
Touring the city in a converted 1966 Routemaster bus, the Red Bus Bistro drives passengers between iconic Glasgow landmarks such as Tolbooth Steeple, People’s Palace and West End.
Dine on a double decker
En route, you will tuck into a delicious afternoon tea.
Look forward to a selection of sandwiches; a warm mini quiche; smoked salmon blini, scones with cream and fresh strawberries.
Naturally, there will be cakes. Munch on macaroons, petits fours and a cupcake or meringue as the vintage double decker takes in the sights.
Add a gin cocktail
And, if you fancy something a little stiffer, there is the option to upgrade on the day to the gin afternoon tea.
An additional £10 per person, payable on board, means you can sip on a gin cocktail while you cruise around.
Tour with tea
This Handpicked Deal is for one person to have the tour with afternoon tea. Your tour will last approximately 70-90 minutes.
Picking up and dropping off at George Square, the tours run at noon and 3pm on the following dates:
30th & 31st August
1st, 2nd, 3rd, 9th & 10th September
The Red Bus Bistro has only recently started running in Glasgow. It has been running in Edinburgh since last year and has attracted lots of glowing TripAdvisor reviews for their tours of the capital. These have been edited for length:
‘Fantastic day. I booked the experience for my Dad’s Father’s Day. He absolutely loved it. The two girls who were serving the afternoon tea and drinks were lovely and very helpful… Plenty of food available and was lovely just driving around Edinburgh seeing parts of it you probably wouldn’t have given a thought to go look at. The girls were very informative… there wasn’t a tour guide on board… there was a map provided of where you were going and, if you asked the girls about the area, they would tell you.’
‘Red Bus Bistro afternoon tea – different! Used our Christmas gift voucher from family to enjoy this different experience. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the trip through the Old and New towns of Edinburgh. The staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive… Would recommend!!’
‘Got a voucher for the Red Bus Bistro afternoon tea as a gift. The atmosphere on the bus was just right and the staff were lovely. We really enjoyed it. Something really different.’
See your city in a new light
Obviously, Edinburgh is no Glasgow.
So, we can only imagine how much more chuffed the above guests would have been had they taken the tour in the Dear Green Place.
Jump on board this Handpicked Deal and enjoy a delish afternoon tea while riding a vintage Routemaster around the sights of Glasgow.
This offer would be ideal for a hen party. As is traditional, the singing must start at the back of the bus.
Of course, an afternoon tea tour would also make a brilliant gift for a friend, family member or visitor to the city.
As we said at the beginning, this is a different way to experience Glasgow.
And, comfortably seated on the Routemaster, everyone can stay warm and dry while enjoying their afternoon tea.
No matter how Glaswegian the weather turns out.
