The tour is not to be missed if you visit Saint Andrews!!

We loved the tour of Saint Andrews university, the graveyard and buildings, and of course, the golf course. My husband was thrilled to have his picture taken on the Swilcan bridge! Richard, our guide, was exceptional. He was engaging, had fascinating stories to tell, and gave insight to everything about saint andrews, both the town and the golf course. He has phenomenal knowledge about the history of everything and was an amazing tour guide.

I loved hearing the history of the town, and about the development of golf. I appreciated seeing the first ever golf store, and learning about the old course. The church, University, and the Cathedral we're bonuses.

Absolutely wonderful tour! Highly recommend. Our guide was truly and expert on the history of golf, St Andrews and local history. We expected the tour to just be of the courses but we're elated to have such a complete experience. We walked through the entire town and learned a great deal from an absolute expert. Even offered suggestions for lunch and walked with us to the location. Truly a gem
