About the Tour

Glasgow is currently one of the most visited cities in the United Kingdom and not many decades ago it was one of the most important cities of the Industrial Revolution , although today only remnants of that past remain. Join us on this journey through the history of its streets and its people, its buildings and architecture, its stories and anecdotes , but, above all, join us to enjoy this adventure with the best guides in Glasgow .

Glasgow was a city of inventions and inventors, so we will talk about the most important, those who brought with them that Scottish Enlightenment from the 18th century. We will take a tour of that Industrial Revolution that took this metropolis to the top of the world , until the most stately years of the Victorian era, where we will talk about one of its great architects: Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

We will walk along the banks of the River Clyde , the reason for being of this city, and where we will discover hidden secrets , to go to the old Tollbooth.

We will go up to Glasgow Cathedral , the oldest cathedral in Scotland , where we will tell the story of Saint Mungo , patron of the city, and his miracles, to finish at the top of its necropolis, with one of the best views of Glasgow.

Come with us!

Mi amiga y yo hicimos dos tours la semana pasada, uno en Edimburgo, con Mary y otro en Glasgow, con Carlos. Los dos tours fueron increíbles y muy amenos. Se notaba que los guías sabían de lo que hablaban y que les encanta su trabajo, y eso se transmite haciendo que los tours pasen volaos, que quieras más y se te quede el cuerpo con ganas de saber más historias!! Recomendable 100%! Divertido, entretenido y con mucho contenido! Jessica y Maria

Carlos ha sido un excelente guía. La ciudad estaba vacía y el tour fue solo para nosotros dos y aún así lo dio todo como si fuese un grupo enorme. Conoce muy bien la ciudad y le apasionan Glasgow y su trabajo. Indudablemente le recomendamos e intentaremos reservar con él cuando vayamos a Edimburgo. Carlos was an excellent guide. It was just the two of us and he carried on with the tour and gave his all as if we were a huge group. He’s passionate about the city and about his job and that really shows. No doubt I’d recommend this tour and we’ll try to book him also in Edinburgh. A+++

Óscar gracias por comentario. Espero que pudierais visitar todo lo que teníais planeado, y sobre todo conocer las famosas salas de té diseñadas por Macintosh. Fue todo un placer poder hacer el tour para los dos, yo también lo pasé genial enseñándoos Glasgow. Hasta la próxima. Carlos

Es el segundo Tour que hago con Carlos y genial!! Nos contó la historia de Glasgow y muchas curiosidades sobre la gente de allí. Además, nos recomendó sitios donde comer y beber. Un gran guía!
