Authorities on the Glasgow music scene

"A well-informed, engaging and entertaining tour and narration of the evolution of Glasgow music and its characters. Have been on the Merchant City Tour twice with friends visiting from the US - it's been a highlight of their trips both times. The passionate guides are embedded in the music scene of the city so guests get the lowdown from the inside. Highly recommend this experience."

Wonderful music tour!

"A great city walking tour , with lots of info, amusing stories and interesting locations in the city's east end. A particular highlight was an unexpected visit to the Britannia Panopticon Music Hall which was just amazing to stepping back in time! Our guide for the tour was excellent...very well informed and very entertaining. Highly recommended."

Do it!

"A really excellent day out. Despite the constant downpour, it was a pleasure doing the 2 hour stroll through the streets with Alison. A very knowledgeable lady indeed. Fascinating to hear her stories (and those of our fellow walkers) and great to find some little gems of musical establishments we would normally have walked right past. Highly recommended."

"Really enjoyed the tour - great way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday morning. Fiona the guide was excellent. Extremely knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and is deeply immersed in the Scottish music scene with great anecdotes and first hand experiences. Highly recommend the tour. Just listening to the spotify list shared after the tour which is a great bonus!"

A Must for all music fans

"Two hours of fantastic information, stories and places to visit. Starting at the Clutha we had 2 hours of diverse information from Billy Connolly to Bowie and Franz Ferdinand to funny stories in the Panopticon. Fiona was a terrific guide who is obviously immersed in the Glasgow music scene. Lots of nice additional personal experiences. Loved it!"
