Thanks to Terry for an engaging entertaining tour which demonstrated her passion for this city and her epic knowledge of all things Glasgow. We loved it!
The tour was very good. Alex was very knowledgeable about the architecture in Glasgow and the history and growth of the city. We enjoyed our tour and glad that we did it.
Alex was an outstanding guide. He arrived exactly on time. He began by asking us about our backgrounds and sharing his. We immediately discovered that we all had interests in common and that made our tour even more targeted to what we wanted to learn about, art and architecture in particular. It was very impressive that Alex has a Ph.D in art history. He knows Glasgow intimately, as well as Scottish history. Alex’s erudition, sense of humor, friendliness, and enthusiasm made our entire time with him truly riveting. He energetically led us from the Kelvingrove to Charles Rennie Macintosh. We would tour with him anywhere!
