Excellent tour by an experienced local guide. Well worth the time and the very reasonable price. Our guide really fleshed out the city and the golf course for us, and made it much easier to explore on our own later.

Fantastic experience and worth every cent. Tour was not just golf focused but loads of information regarding the University, Chapel, local schools, Castle and more.
We were looking for a way to spend an afternoon and understand not just the history of St Andrews golf but everything else in the area and this tour hit the spot, about 2.25 hours. Richard Falconer did an excellent presentation and would highly recommend

Went with my husband and his parents, who were visiting from the US and are very interested in golf. Although I am not into golf, I found the tour fascinating, and it was definitely about much more than golf... The tour guide is so knowledgeable about the history of the town and I learnt a lot. Also very funny and genuine. I 100% recommend this and it will suit groups of people with different interests! He also made great recommendations for places to check out while in St Andrews. Look no further and book this!

Really enjoyable tour! Our guide, Richard, clearly has a vast amount of knowledge of the area and told us so many interesting things that we weren’t aware of. Richard was very engaging and explained all of the background very well.

As a golf fan, it was great to learn more about the famous “home of golf” and some of the past stories about the courses.

I would thoroughly recommend this tour for anyone in the St Andrews area, for both golf and non-golf fans alike.

Richard showed us interesting sites around the city that we would never have found on our own.

He has a true passion for the history of this beautiful city.

He also showed me how to save the camera settings on my iPhone to keep my photos in 16:9 format.

Thank you Richard.

We did this walking tour last week. Having never visited St Andrews before this was a great way to see all of the town walking through medieval streets admiring traditional al buildings as well as the university, palace and cathedral
Richard has a vast knowledge of the town with a plentiful supply of facts. He has obviously devoted a significant amount of time to researching the history of St Andrews as well as providing some personal experiences and anecdotes. Oh and of course no visit to St Andrews would be complete without some history of Golf & a visit to the Old Course !!
Thoroughly recommend - very informative and excellent value for money

My mother is from Glasgow and both sets of grandparents played at St. Andrews. Wanting to see for myself the golf course they have always talked about is what brought me to Richard’s tour. It was an excellent tour. Richard really knows his history above just the golf history. I got more out of this tour than I would have coming on my own to explore. Personally I believe Richards was better than the other tour I almost did that was sold out. I would highly recommend taking his tour if you visit St. Andrews. Hands down the best! Plus St. Andrews is so beautiful, beyond the golf course! Thank you Richard

We were lucky to have a private tour with Richard during our visit to St. Andrews. He is so knowledgeable and hilarious! We enjoyed learning about the local sites and hearing his personal stories as a caddy, the famous celebrities he has met during tournaments, and of course all of the extensive history the area has to offer. You’ll walk away saying “WOW!” Thank you Richard from your Indiana friends.

We loved our tour with Richard! We went for my husband’s birthday since he is a huge golf fan. Richard was so knowledgeable on the history of St. Andrew’s golf, but also provided so much history of the community. This was our favorite part of our UK trip.
