Glasgow On and Off Bus

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 to 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.

Excellent Way to See Glasgow at Your Own Pace
June 02, 2023
The hop-on/hop-off bus was a great way to view the city. The bus offers both live and recorded tours of the city and you are able to get off and view the sites at your own pace. Recommended to do a loop of the live tour first to view the sites and pick the stops you want to get off on later. We would do this tour again.

With my hop on-off bus paid in advance, I skipped the long line waiting to buy a ticket and hopped right on the waiting bus!

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.
