Private Tours

City Centre Historic Tour

On our City Centre Foot Cruise we will show you how Glasgow developed from a tiny village into the Second City of the British Empire; take you through medieval times to the days of the wealthy Tobacco Lords and creation of the Merchant City; show you the wonderful Victorian architecture of which Glasgow is justifiably so proud……and explain the consequences this had for so many pre-existing buildings in the city.
But understanding and appreciating the past is not to say that we dwell on it and while the foot cruises deal largely with the Glasgow of bygone days we will also be showcasing 21st century Glasgow – a city second only to London as a shopping experience – a bustling and modern European city that fascinates, excites and entertains from the first moment of your arrival.

Please note: This tour can be adapted to suit wheelchair users.

Private Group Half-Day Walking Tours

There’s so much to see in Glasgow that you can’t get round all the attractions – even in 2 full days. But you can make the most of a short visit by seeing a good selection of highlights in and around the city centre on one of our half-day Private Group Tours. The tour will cover the City Centre and Merchant City areas plus a trip across to the West End on the Subway (underground) system to check out this fascinating corner of town.

See Glasgow’s iconic historic buildings and world-famous Victorian architecture and learn how the city grew from a tiny village beside the River Clyde to become the Second City of the British Empire and the beating heart of the Industrial Revolution.

Whether your passion is for architecture and design, performing arts, museums, strolling in beautiful parks or soaking up the local culture you will find it all in this exciting and vibrant city……and, later, if you are not too tired from browsing in the Style Mile (shopping areas) there’s a massive choice of fantastic bars, restaurants and cafes as well as a great live music scene at night with concerts and festivals for all tastes throughout the year.
