Local tours

For passengers who have decided to spend the day in Greenock, we offer short guided coach tours to provide a glimpse of what our local area has to offer.

Our unique tours are guided by volunteers who are all knowledgeable local people. Each lasts about 2 hours and starts and ends at Greenock Ocean Terminal. All return in plenty of time for ship departure.

There are three different tours at different times throughout he day; starting from about 9:15am onwards. They are very popular and we use small coaches to create a relaxed atmosphere, but this means places are limited. If you wish to come on one of our tours please speak to any of our tartan clad volunteers at the Greenock Ocean Terminal or call at our "bus ticket desk" inside the building.

To be fair to all passengers it is usually possible to book only one tour, so please read the descriptions of the tours below and decide which you would like to experience. The tours are free (all tourist group members give their help without pay) but since we must pay the cost of the coaches we invite donations for this expense. There is a donation box on board each coach. We accept foreign currency as well as pounds. Please note that there is a small entry charge for the castle on the Newark tour, which we collect at the ticket desk and pass on to Historic Scotland who run the castle. You can pay this in pounds, euros or dollars.
