Gordon was a great guide! I was nervous at the start due to the larger group numbers for the tour. Gordon made sure I did not stress & had a lot of detailed stories to tell about the city! I am glad I went for the tour. It was accommodating to each person and Gordon made sure everyone was comfortable. If anyone on airbnb is looking to have a tour of Glasgow, make sure to book here :)

Fantastic tour guide with lots of interesting facts and stories about the city. Pitched at the perfect level for us and squeezed a lot into the time but didn’t feel at all rushed - even managed to see the film set for the new Indiana Jones film being set up. Would definitely recommend.

This was an excellent tour. I did Glasgow and Hamilton, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Glasgow has plenty of impressive things to see while Hamilton has an interesting element of history that is often forgotten by tourists.

Very pleasant and interesting tour of the city center. Gordon is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his home city. Unforgettable stories and even a few poems by Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns.

Gordon was an amazing tour guide. His recital of Robert Burns poetry was gripping and a real treat. Highly recommend this personal tour of Glasgow to all that come to visit.
