Take a seat in your air-conditioned minivan in central Glasgow then, at 9am, head out of the city toward the Kelpies to begin your 4-hour tour. Along the way, listen as your guide shares anecdotes about Glasgow, and gain insight into the history and background of the sites in your tour.
First, visit the Kelpies — two 98-foot (30-meter) high horse head statues located by the banks of the Forth and Clyde canals. Enjoy a short stroll through Helix Park, and admire fine views over the famous statue from all angles as your guide sheds light on their design and historic significance.
Afterward, head on to the Falkirk Wheel — built to restore the link between the Forth and Clyde canals and widely considered among Scotland’s finest feats of engineering. Here, learn how the project has helped regenerate the area and perhaps watch the mighty swing-bridge in operation.
Spend time in the exhibition and visitor center, then take the journey back to central Glasgow — arriving back at 1pm.
