Board a vintage bus for a driving tour of Glasgow complete with afternoon tea. See the city’s top attractions including the West End and Glasgow University while snacking on sandwiches, scones, and cupcakes. Sip tea, coffee, or wine as the bus rolls through the streets of Glasgow. Several departure times allow you to explore the city on your own schedule.
What to Expect
Sit back, relax and enjoy our truly eclectic Afternoon Tea Experience. Start the day off with a celebratory glass of fizz, then be guided to your seat where a dainty cake stand awaits. A sumptuous selection of sandwiches, petits fours, cupcakes and warmed, freshly baked scones await.
As the tour trundles around the streets of Glasgow, you’ll be able to take in the sights while imbibing lashings of tea and coffee or the wine of your choice, specially chosen for you from our ‘buy on board’ drinks trolley.
Our tours typically operate at 12 noon, 3.00 p.m. and 6.00 p.m., with each tour lasting approximately 90 minutes.

A bit squished for 3 not the best tea I’ve had

As lovers of an afternoon tea, at £105 for 3 people I expected more. It had taken a while to get a booking so I thought this will be fab! I have to start by saying the staff were very pleasant and welcoming. Our seat...More
