Recently named ‘Europe’s murder capital’ and voted the ‘UK’s friendliest city’ in the same week! It’s fair to say Glasgow is a confusing city, which means you need a true Weegie to show you the ropes. Lets share a dram, some traditional Scottish snacks and explore famous landmarks and gritty street art, while I tell you of Glasgow’s crime and macabre past! Its ties to the slave trade, its gangs, its godfathers, its ghosts, and its twisted serial killers!

This is not your average tour, full of dull architectural facts and dates. No! We are absolutely bursting with trademark dry Glaswegian humour and have all the feisty, entertaining tales the tourist industry likes to leave out! 'People Make Glasgow' and this is a tour dedicated to the people and their thrilling, hilarious, and sometimes terrifying adventures. Want to know about Bible John? The Human Crocodile? The Gorbals Vampire? Arthur Thompson and his kin? Look no further!

These are not the stories you will find in museums, they cannot be summed up in a book. We, Glaswegians, are known to spin a yarn and are the world’s greatest storytellers. I will add in my own anecdotes passed down from my family, including both the historical facts and the mythical imaginings clearly defined.

You will learn to admire our working-class charm. Our brutality, our humour and most of all our complexity. Edinburgh might be Scotland’s brain, but Glasgow is its heart!
