Perfect Day Out
, Sep 2020
I purchased tickets for Mother’s Day. It was the perfect day out and suitable for all ages. We got picked up on time just behind Amore restaurant in Glasgow. When we accessed the bus our drinks and food was prepped awaiting us and everything was fresh. My niece who is 1 years old had sandwiches, crisps and chocolate with a little fruit shoot and the adults got procecco, a selection of sandwiches and delicious cakes. Due to the current climate there was some people that never showed up which was a shame however due to this the staff were lovely enough to give us the left over drinks to save them going to waste. We also got unlimited teas and coffees which were lovely and hot. The staff were so lovely, very friendly and easy to approach. The bus driver was lovely too. My niece was the only child on the tour and they made it very entertaining. You her lovely views of Glasgow and there is also a stop off at the Crown Plaza for a toilet break. Everyone in Glasgow is lovely, waving. The bus is beautifully designed and very cosy. I can’t thank the staff enough for their hospitality, it was such a lovely day that we will remember. I highly recommend this trip and to all of those worried about COVID-19 the staff followed all safety precautions and made sure everyone was separated.
