We took the Crime and Punishment tour, which focused on the darker side of Glasgow's past. The tour was interesting and informative and took us to parts of Glasgow we had not been in yet during our normal tourist activities.

I have been on two walks so far with this guide and found both interesting and each had a few "wow" moments. I like the pace of these walks which is usually not too strenuous, although we seem to cover a fair distance.
