If you want to visit Glasgow at your own pace and with no hurry, the double-decker hop on, hop off bus tour is your best bet! You can get on and off all day long, with the same ticket, and learn about the history of the city through a comfortable audio system with earphones.
From the top deck of the tour bus you will be amazed at the beautiful landscapes and exceptional architecture that this city has to offer. From famous art galleries and museums to attractive parks and countless shopping opportunities, there really is something to suit every taste. Hop off the tour bus and visit the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, showcasing striking exhibitions in 22 themed modern galleries. This cultural treasure trove is one of the largest museums in the UK, and welcomes visitors of all ages. The museum caters largely for the kids who can actively take part in events throughout the year and specially designed workshops during the school holidays. Another of Glasgow's leading attractions, located at Glasgow Harbor, is the last remaining Clyde-built sailing ship. The Tall Ship provides you with a fascinating history and represents an impressive independent museum dedicated to the preservation of the Glenlee.

Because of time constraints, we only had time to visit one site. The bus tour was great and the start location across the street from Queen Station was very convenient.
