    • Glide and glug your way around glorious Glasgow

      Glide around gregarious Glasgow on a standout guided tour of this Scottish gem’s highlights, including the Drygate Brewery, People’s Palace, Clyde Waterfront, Kelvingrove Park, Glasgow University, and Glasgow Cathedral.

      This day tour of discovery is topped off with a tantalizing craft beer tasting guaranteed to leave you with fabulous memories of glorious Glasgow!

      Your dynamic day tour kicks off at the Drygate Brewery, an icon of Glasgow’s growing craft beer culture that’s been serving up popular pints and a celebrated menu since 2014. This trendy brewery owes some of its charm to the eclectic history of its housing - the Drygate was once a working steel printing factory, and the brewery today incorporates these distinctive historical features (box factory, print works, bottling plant, and storage unit) into its contemporary setup.

      Pedal onwards to the People’s Palace and Winter Gardens and park up your bicycle at the gleaming red exterior of this magnificent museum, renowned for its spectacular glasshouse that glints in the sunshine on Glasgow Green.

      Your brilliant bike tour continues along the famous Clyde Waterfront, offering you multiple opportunities to snap wonderful photos of the Glasgow skyline, the Clyde Bridges, and the remarkable river that weaves its atmospheric presence through the city. Dotted on this waterfront is the iconic Clyde Auditorium, nicknamed the ‘Armadillo’ by the locals owing to its distinctive shape!

      Cycle on to the Finnieston Crane standing proudly in the Glasgow skyline as a symbol of the city’s engineering heritage. Wind your way to the West End, with its vintage vibe, chic boutiques and eateries, and unique lanes.

      Carry on to Kelvingrove Park, home to the world-famous Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum, Scotland’s most-visited free tourist site, where baroque architecture commands the eye. You’ll be impressed by Glasgow University, Scotland’s second-oldest university, viewed through the emerald foliage which lines the Kelvin River.

      Then, cast your eyes over one of the last remaining examples of medieval buildings in the city – Glasgow Cathedral – commanding impressive views in the center of Glasgow and standing testament to the historical heritage of Scotland’s largest city (this was where the Battle o’ the Bell o’ the Brae took place in 1300).

      Your unique bike tour draws close to its finale at the eerie Glasgow Necropolis, nicknamed the ‘City of the Dead’. This classic Victorian cemetery houses 50,000 graves and sits on a low hill, sending a shiver down the spines of those who visit this strange site.

      As the spectacular sightseeing segment of your bicycle tour comes to a close, the tantalizing craft beer tasting section begins! Taste the finest of Glasgow’s trendy beers in its lively heart, enjoying exquisite refreshments and the fabulous atmosphere of Scotland’s friendliest city.
