Just returned from great McIntosh walk with Laura and Rahana. Very informative and enjoyable Walk. Would recommend for anyone interested in Glasgow architecture and McIntosh. Took 2.25 hr Walk. Well worth time and cost. Georgiana and Ted. Erie, Pa

Me and my friend did the Mackintosh tour, with Raheela & Karlie. Raheela was a great guide, she obviously had a passion about architecture and the city and the part that Mackintosh played in it. Interesting views on the city.
