Board your motorcoach and travel along the banks of the Clyde to the heart of Glasgow and its magnificent Gothic cathedral. Begun in the year 1136, the cathedral is the only Scottish cathedral to have survived the Scottish Protestant Reformation intact. The cathedral features arcades, buttresses, tracery windows and three vaulted aisles at the presbytery and choir. The church is reputedly built over the site of St. Mungo's original Christian community; the saint's tomb is located in the cathedral's crypt. Glasgow cathedral also boasts a stunning collection of Postmodern English stained glass.

After your visit reboard your motorcoach and travel towards George Square. Disembark your coach in the city center and allow your guide to orient you to all that can be seen as you enjoy a short stroll around George Square. You will then have approximately 90 minutes to explore the city on your own. Be sure to take time to enjoy a delicious traditional lunch at one of the city's many delightful restaurants and pubs. Fish 'n' Chips, anyone?
