Glasgow has a lively and historic music scene and you may well be in the city to see a gig or three, but how much do you know about the venues? Many of them have more stories to tell than the bands you could hear. On these tours that you can download for less than a pound each you are... More

Really pleased to hear that you discovered something new by doing the tour Kevin. To be honest we thought we knew a lot about the city's music scene until we started looking deeper into the stories of the venues and bands who play there. We know we still have much more to learn so will be delighted to hear about... More

The geniuses at Walking Heads have created a fantastic app to enlighten the uninformed and savviest music-lover alike. We loved every moment with our virtual guide Jim Gellatly, a perfect companion to navigate us through the city’s musical history with intriguing stories, excellent directions – and thoughtfully even reminding us to take care crossing the road. This fantastic app lives... More

Enjoying the idea of being a genius! Thanks for a really cheering review on a cold winter day. Delighted you enjoyed the company of our guide Jim Gellatly, we think his enthusiasm is really infectious but of course we're kind of biased! Glad he got you safely across the road too :-) More

This must be one of the cheapest tours you can do anywhere. You download Walking Head's Glasgow Music Tour apps-and away you go. There are four apps covering four routes- taking about an hour each but the nice thing is you do it in your own time. I walked it over a couple of days and what I really like... More

Thank you for your lovely review Jean. Stereo is one of our favourite places too and the Macintosh building in Renfield Lane is definitely one of Glasgow's hidden gems. We are very pleased to hear that although you have been to Glasgow before you discovered something new by exploring with the Glasgow Music Tour. Hope you will be back again... More

There's a lot of walking in this tour - which is on a downloadable app - but you can break it down and do as much or as little as you like. It takes you to music venues where some of the greats have played and gives you a glimpse of the city you would not normally get. A real... More
