Join Invisible Glasgow’s brilliant tour guide Daniel for an experience in Glasgow like no other. Daniel will guide you through the city streets as he has lived them. After selling the Big Issue in the West End for 8 years, Daniel trained with Invisible Cities and has created a tour especially for you! Discover a new side of the Merchant City neighborhood as you hear stories of murders, hangings, and punishment. Visit the site of the last public hanging - the real “Murder Alley.” Conclude your tour at the Duke of Wellington’s Statue, right in the heart of Glasgow.
Robin and I had a good time. Daniel's confidence grew throughout the tour and I think he was, rightly, pleased at the end of the tour. The length of the tour was just about right and Daniel was able to appropriately incorporate part of his own, personal history into tour.
