Au programme

This is a small private tour. Typically 2/3 guests. However during Covid numbers will be restricted to less than ten. We meet George Square, between the Lions. Please note the Govan Church like all other places of worship and public buildings remain closed. So our tour has been adjusted to accomodate this.
For the 10.30 tour we focus on Glasgow’s city centre and it’s mysterious history and association with tobacco and slavery. Walking around the city centre ending at Glasgow Cross the heart of the Medieval city.
The tour examines how Glasgow went from being a small rural medieval city from around 500ad to the world's powerhouse with a population of over a million people.
The city has re-invented itself several times and is now transforming itself into one of worlds most beautiful cities from an ugly industrial despoiled blot.
Trace the slave trade and the ruthless barons who profited from the mysery of millions of africans. But before them it was Scotsmen who were enslaved to colonies in the Americas.
We explore Glasgow's complex social, religous and political past when tanks patrolled Glasgow city centre and riots led to executions at Glasgow Cross.
Glasgow has it all from political religous and social strife.
Gordon is a great raconteur, a trained actor with a comedic talent.
Starting George Square, exploring the Merchant City then down to the Medieval High street.
Other things to note
Scottish weather is changeable so bring clothing options including sunscreen. We are never far from shops so anything can be acquired.
If you need a later or earlier start please message me and I'll try and accomodate you.

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.

Gordon was wonderful with loads of information ...that I got to understand their culture. We even got to have coffee and bread (on my own of course)— (more of my preference as I easily get tired), yet seems like you’re talking to a friend with lots of story-telling. He even showed me where the Catholic Church was (St. Andrew’s), which was dear to me as I had to go to church the next day. It was an amazing and comfortable tour of the River Clyde and the city centre! I would highly recommend this city tour! Thanks a million Gordon !!!!!
