FAQ

What should I wear and bring on a walking tour in Glasgow?

When preparing for a walking tour in Glasgow, it is important to dress comfortably and be prepared for the city's variable weather. Comfortable footwear is essential, as you will be walking through the Glasgow city centre and potentially on uneven surfaces.

It is also wise to dress in layers due to the city's unpredictable weather. Bringing a waterproof jacket or an umbrella is recommended, especially if your tour includes exploring the city's architecture and street art.

Additionally, carry a bottle of water, sunscreen, and a hat if it is sunny. A small backpack can be useful to store any items you might need during the tour.

Are the walking tours suitable for children and older adults?

Our walking tours are designed to be enjoyable for all ages, but here are some considerations to keep in mind. For children, our tours, including those focusing on Glasgow history and street art, are family friendly.

The engaging stories and interactive elements make it fun for kids, though it is a clever idea to check the specific tour details to ensure it is suitable for your child's age and interests. For older adults, the tours are easy-paced and cover key sights in Glasgow.

However, some areas may have cobblestones or slight inclines. If you have any mobility concerns, please let us know in advance so we can accommodate your needs.
