My husband & I booked a private tour with Martin and had a lovely time. Touring the city by bike allowed us to experience much more of the city than we likely would have otherwise. The historical & cultural context Martin shared along our stops gave us a great foundation for the remainder of our time in Glasgow. Martin is knowledgeable, personable, and friendly - he even recommended lunch and activities for the remainder of our tour, making planning super easy. Thanks for a great morning cycling:)

The highlight of my trip to Scotland! The private bike tour with Gallus Pedals was without a doubt the highlight of my week-long trip to Scotland. I booked the ride thinking it was a great way to get some fresh air and exercise while learning something new; it was all these things and much more. Here's why you should be sure to book a tour with Gallus Pedals as part of your trip to Glasgow: the guide is knowledgeable and excited to share with the rider all that his hometown has to offer. He points out favorite restaurants and places to catch a show as you pedal around and will follow up after the ride with more recommendations if you so desire. The guide is a great storyteller, who weaves together stories of the city's history with his own stories of growing up in Glasgow and living there today. My private tour was like a ride with a friend and helped me feel more connected to the city and its people. Book today!
