We’re good to go!

City Sightseeing Glasgow is proud to be a certified ‘Good To Go’ business. This means that we adhere to public health & Government guidance and have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment to check we have the required processes and protocols in place.

‘We’re good to go’ is a UK wide industry standard distributed by the tourist organisations of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. You will start to see this logo across various tourism and hospitality businesses in Glasgow.

Please familiarise yourself with our guidance before your tour.

Planning Your Tour

At this time, we strongly recommend booking your tour tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.

You will receive booking confirmation and an e-ticket which you can print or have on your mobile device. When you board the tour bus, e-tickets are scanned contactless.

New departure point

Our tour departs from George Square outside Costa, just one minute away from our previous stop which is now being pedestrianised.


Our timetable is subject to change as we emerge out of lockdown and into our new world.

During July we will operate hourly from 0930 to 1630, Friday to Monday. Tours will operate daily from August and every 30 minutes from Friday 07 August. Operating times will also change to 1000 to 1630.

Our tour takes approximately 90 minutes.

You can also track your tour bus live.

Face covering

It is mandatory to wear face coverings on public transport in Scotland. We ask you to respect this Government rule and use a face covering on our tour bus. This could be a scarf, mask or home-made face covering. This excludes children under five years old. We understand some customers are unable to wear masks for a range of reasons, we would also ask you to not judge those who do not wear masks.

Please read our face covering FAQs for further information.

Contactless payment

If you haven’t booked your tickets in advance here on our website, you can pay your driver with contactless cards, Apple Pay or Google Pay. While cash is still accepted, we would ask you to try to avoid on bus cash payments. 

At bus stops

It is recommended by the Scottish Government when travelling to a bus stop and whilst standing at a bus stop you maintain a two-metre distance from other people. This excludes members of the same group.

Physical distancing on bus

We would like to thank you for maintaining physical distancing whilst travelling on our tour buses. We recognise it can be difficult, especially when dealing with payment, entering and exiting the bus however we thank you in advance for continuing to take care of yourself, be mindful of others and keep your distance at all times.
