“Fantastic tour!”

I can’t rate this tour highly enough, absolutely fantastic! The history of the building is astounding and Paul’s (our guide) knowledge and passion was clear to see. Paul’s sense of humour is fab and even through the more serious notes in history that he relays are hard to think about he does so with real sensitivity. He has some great plans in terms of restoration for the future and I will definitely be booking again in a few months to go back. Def book in for this tour, you won’t be disappointed!

“Explore part of Glasgow’s past”

A genuinely excellent experience, these tours are not to be missed. As someone who was born and brought up in Glasgow, I’ve been in Central Station hundreds of times, but never below it. Paul (the tour guide) is excellent – very informative, passionate and truly funny – and the tour itself, fascinating. You get to see not just what made the station tick but are taken back in time across several areas, to get a feel for what it used to be like for olden travelers; a rare ‘attraction’ in Scotland as I’ve never seen anything like it in this country before. Really, really good – would recommend it to anyone, and would go again.

“If you only do one thing in Glasgow, do this.”

Just been on this tour for the second time and it is fantastic. The knowledge that Paul Lyons shares gives a fascinating and very real insight of not just the station, but Glasgow as a whole. No script, no pre-rehearsed lines, just a wonderful wealth of knowledge presented with a super sized dose of Glasgow humour. If you choose only to do one thing in Glasgow, this is not to be missed.
