I was born and raised on the south side of the city. Always with an enquiring mind I was attracted to everything in the city centre: Who built this? What was that used for? Why was that street demolished? Why do I ask so many questions (haha)?

Although I never studied history at school there was always something about the city's culture and it's people that seemed different from anywhere else. The areas of deprivation seemed almost more fascinating than the affluent parts of town and I just loved to wander around the streets looking for the everyday things that most people took for granted.

I'm still nostalgic for the things that have long disappeared, from tramcars to steam trains, from gas lighting to pre-decimal money. But I love the new Glasgow too and am proud to belong to the city and to welcome tourists and visitors from all over the world.

I am not a history teacher so my tours are not like lectures. Think of it as a great, relaxed walk round town with an old friend. Welcome to Glasgow.

Hi Lorenzo, Thanks so much for the great review and I'm glad you enjoyed the tour. At this time of year it is quite common for guests to book a tour then not show up, mainly because of the weather and it is ok with me. I hope the rest of your stay in Scotland gave you good memories too. Cheers Iain
