City Sightseeing Buses
Advantages: Great tour guide, excellent quality of clean and comfy bus, well driven, great value for money
Having lived in Scotland all of my life and loving the place with a passion my wife and I were delighted to recently be visited by her family who wanted to see some of Glasgow so we decided to use the Sightseeing Tours bus in the city to take them and us around and give a little more depth to what the place is all about but was it worth it?
The bus itself was a double decker with the upper floor having a small amount of cover at the front but the back fully open so that you can have a variety of different places to sit dependant on what you want and the weather. The bus seating was comfortable and overall it was obviously kept to high standard as it was so clean and fresh feeling.
The value for money side of this was somethin I at first worried about as it was £11 per adult but when advised that lasts you for 2 full days then you realise just how good this is as you can jump off at a number of stops and make this £11 give you a large amount of entertainment for the 2 days (especially in Glasgow as museums are mainly free so it works out very cheap).
The tour guide was very friendly and knoweldgeable and thanks to living in the city was able to offer up information on coffee shops, bars and restaurants (even telling us which ones were best to avoid) as well as the main points of interest. He kept things ticking along and did not bore which was my biggest concern.
The tour we went on lasted about an hour and 45 minutes and you could have jumped off at any of the stops on the tour (I believe it was 20) and with the buses being every 30 minutes then this offered a great way to see the city safe in the knowledge you would not need to stay any longer than you wished.
The bus was well driven and you felt safe throughout which is something I have previously not felt on any double decker so this was a nice surprise for me.
Keep your ticket once used and you can show it on your next tour with the same company anywhere they operate and get £1 off your ticket which I think is excellent.
Overall I was very impressed with this sightseeing tour and would highly recommend them for anyone (even just to tour your own city as you can learn a lot). Great tour guide who was knowledgeable and friendly and a driver who kept the tour at a good pace all made my tour a fun one so I highly recommend.
Summary: Overall I highly recommend these tours for anyone
