Description

Glasgow's origins must be traced back to Kentigern's time, a medieval monk who came to Christianise these lands and remains to this day a symbol of the city, as you will discover in the free tour.

Nicknamed the “Second City of the Empire” because of its economic and industrial might, only surpassed by London's, Glasgow still bears testimony of its golden industrial days in every street and corner.

The best Glasgow Free Tour starts in George Square, in the middle of the Square. Yo'll find us under a blue and white umbrella.

The Glasgow Free Tour looks forward to offering travellers the opportunity to get to know the best of Glasgow in their own language. Our guides are professionals in their field, and will make of your visit to the city a truly unforgettable experience. Their salary is merely tips-based, which guarantees the quality of their work throughout the entire visit.
