We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with the very knowledgeable Fiona. Visited many places that we had previously walked past without knowing their significance. Looking forward to taking part in another of their tours.

Loved the Music Hall and all the anecdotes. Strange to think Harry Lauder started his career here and then went on to have my Granny in his show in Arbroath. Apparently he always invited local talent to perform with him ! The jazz luminaries highlighted...More

We had a great afternoon. Just the right amount of information, delivered brilliantly. We saw and heard about people and places that were new to us even although we have always lived in Glasgow. Thank you.

Thanks Jean S. We like to think that we can tell even the most enthusiastic music fan something new while keeping the content colourful enough for the more casual tour guest. I'll pass on your kind comments to Fiona. Thanks again.

So many gems uncovered... right there, under your nose... Sadly,so many of these folk legends are no longer with us, but have left an invaluable legacy. Left me with the distinct impression that if alcohol had not been invented, the Glasgow folk scene would not...More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, ramonw944. It makes a big difference to us. We agree, whisky and music have often had a fruitful relationship. Thanks again.

Well researched and fluently presented with lots of funny anecdotes and serious facts. Thoroughly enjoyed Fiona’s tour despite wet feet and snow blizzard!

Thanks for the lovely review, Nicky. Much appreciated. We try to get a good balance of daft stories and proper information in a useful context. Yes, weather was not always as kind as it can be. Fiona's feet are still in a water bath.
