I have had a long career as an engineer, military service, police officer, businessman, judge, so I have some stories. Since I retired about seven years ago, I trained as an actor and then started as a tour guide about five years ago. I really love my city and have a lot of fun exploring it with guests and surprising them.
A great tour of Glasgow with one of Scotland's leading tour guides. This is a tour of Glasgow city center, but it really is an introduction to Scotland, its history and culture using Glasgow as a theme. Whether it's Gordon reciting poetry in George Square or discovering Glasgow's obscure slave trade, this tour has it all. Glasgow's Victorian and Edwardian architecture is quite magnificent, but it also had some of the worst slums in the world and lodgings all within a few hundred meters of each other.
Learn how Glasgow went from a small medieval rural town to the "Second City of the Empire" and started the industrial revolution within a hundred years. We will explore the city center, admire the buildings, using small alleys and secret alleys that you would never find on your own. Each building has a story, from murders to political strife, and Gordon will explore them with you.
Ends at Glasgow Cross (execution site) or Glasgow's medieval cathedral.
We will see each other soon :)

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
