Review of Edinburgh Goes Pop Tour June 2018:

"Wonderful Tour.

David, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable and really geared the tour to our interests. His energy and obvious love of history really made this tour great. Time really flew by and I didn't find a moment that I was bored and just wanting him to move on - which let's face it...happens on almost every tour."

From modern classics in literature and the big screen such as Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Outlander and Avengers Infinity War to amazing works from days gone past such as Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and even Dracula, Edinburgh has featured in or inspired in all of them. Unleash your inner geek and come and explore the quirky side of Edinburgh that anyone who enjoys a bit of pop culture will absolutely love.

Review on Tripadvisor from August 2018:

Amazing Edinburgh and St Andrews Tour!

"My husband and I had a few days before a cruise to see Edinburgh and St. Andrews. We booked with Will at Iconic Tours who was extremely helpful and easy to work with. I emailed him several times and he got right back to me, even when he was on vacation!! He set us up with Gillian for the Old and New Town tours. Will took us on the St. Andrews and surrounding areas tour. (3 tours total) All tours were informative, friendly and fun. We feel like we not only got amazing tours, but also made 2 new friends.'

Around 90 minutes from Edinburgh is St Andrews, a gorgeous town with much more than just golf. It has Scotland's oldest university (from 1413) where prince William and Kate studied, the roots of the reformation in Scotland come from there and we can see parts of the gold course, stand on the Swilcan bridge, wander through the campus and explore the ruins of the ancient Cathedral, once the largest building in Scotland and a favourite for all those who visit.


Our walking tours last 2.5 hours and start in the golf museum or your hotel
