I loved this tour. Karen is very knowledgeable and she kept it interesting annd entertaining. It was a very cold day, but I really didn’t think about how cold I was because I was enjoying the information and the art so much. It is obvious that she has a passion for this topic, as do I. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Our tour guide was great and super knowledgable. He took us to various places with street art and had some interesting stories about the artists behind. We now look at street art differently.

A very interesting afternoon seeing a different side of Glasgow with a guide who was clearly passionate about the subject. Excellent!

Mary was very knowledge with a delightful sense of humour. We learnt a lot and laughed a lot. Great fun. Highly recommended.

Our guide was extremely passionate about Glasgow and the art she showed. Great walk around the city and very informative
