A new walking tour app will allow Glaswegians and visitors the opportunity to see the city in a different light, while keeping active.
The free storytelling app has been developed to support the city’s recovery after the impact of the pandemic by increasing tourism, enhancing visitor experience and supporting local guides who have contributed to the project.
The tour will include dark and gruesome histories of Glasgow’s industrial past as well as exploring the rich and vibrant music scene of the city.
It will also explore graffiti murals and their inspiration and tell stories of historic female Glasgow icons.
The app uses GPS technology and provides a gateway to Glasgow through five audio tours that signpost users across the city.
Supported by Experience Glasgow and developed by Open Pass Scotland – who have successfully launched both the Edinburgh and Stirling City Pass, the interactive app is the first phase of the Glasgow City Pass which is planned for release later in the year.
Geoff Morrison, founder of Open Pass Scotland said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Experience Glasgow to launch the audio-guided Glasgow Walking Tour App.
“This has been an exciting collaboration with local walking tour providers as we look to innovate and showcase Glasgow’s outstanding visitor offering.
“This is also an important milestone in the launch of the Glasgow City Pass as we continue to work alongside local tourism providers to increase footfall across the city.”
