Walking Tours of Glasgow with CityDays


Your urban odyssey starts here!

We’re passionate about bringing history alive and shining a light on all the amazing hidden things right on your very doorstep. 

Our Glasgow walking tours are designed to make learning about the city, its history and culture fun and interesting. Instead of listening to a monologue or traipsing about 

Whether you live and work here or you’re just popping by, there’s no getting around the fact that Glasgow is one of the most intriguing cities in the U.K. 

Shrouded in mystery and previously neglected in favour of its ancient neighbour Edinburgh, Glasgow has had to fight for its position as a place worthy of cultural and historic exploration. 

But don’t be fooled. Although Glasgow is the younger sibling, it has its own style, personality, quirks and fascinating past. Take a peek beyond the veil and uncover Glasgow’s hidden gems and secrets by undertaking a Glasgow walking tour…you’ll be surprised by what you find there.

Get The Most Out of Your Walking Tours in Glasgow


Our Glasgow walking tours transform you and your friends, family, colleagues or whoever into detectives, explorers and tour guides all at the same time. 

You’ll be tasked with uncovering the Empire of Smoke and venturing beyond its iconic landmarks to reveal Glasgow’s urban secrets. 

You answer the clues, you discover the secret sights and hidden gems, and it’s your team that competes for top spot on our leaderboard.

We’ve worked hard to make sure there’s something for everyone who plays our Glasgow walking tours. So if it’s history, mythology, pubs, cosy cafes, weird geographical quirks or just fascinating facts you’re after - know that you’ll find it with CityDays!

See The City Your Way: Glasgow City Walking Tours


No queues, no hassle, no strangers. 

Your enjoyment is at the heart of what we do. That’s why we create trails that help you explore a city without any of the downsides of doing so on a typical sightseeing tour.

You decide who you do your tour with: whether it’s just you or you invite your friends, family, other half or colleagues along for the journey, rest assured that no strangers will be crashing your adventure.

Take your time or race ahead: We have an opt-in competitive element to our games. That means that if you answer the clues in record time, submit the best photo or take part in any of our other challenges, your team will be in with the chance to win fun prizes.

However, these are totally optional and if you want to take your time exploring the sights or nipping into cosy shops, rest stops or attractions along the way, by all means do!

In fact, we encourage rest stops: We want you to experience the best of Glasgow. That’s why we recommend pubs, cafes and bars that you can use as rest stops along the way if you want to. If you’re raring to go or have other commitments in mind, that’s fine too. You’re welcome to pause the game at any point and resume it when you’re ready.

Stop or start whenever it’s convenient for you: Babysitter or train cancelled? No problem! Our games can be played at any time, although we do recommend playing during daylight hours (it’s hard to spot clues in the dark and your safety is a priority for us). 

All you need is a phone, comfy shoes and a sense of adventure: really, that’s it. If you have a good bunch of people around you, all the better. 

The Best Glasgow Walking Tours


Our walking tours of Glasgow are designed to show you the good stuff, cut out the boring stuff, and get you interacting with your surroundings. 

How do we do that? 

Well, we put the activity back in your hands. We curate our trails so they take you around a city’s most interesting streets, landmarks, history, and introduce you to its famous figures. The only catch is - it’s up to you to solve our puzzles, riddles and clues to take you from each one to the next! 

Look up, look down, look left, look right!
