We recently booked two tour experiences with Will during our holiday: the Edinburgh pop walking tour and the Glencoe/Highlands driving tour. We had an excellent experience; Will is friendly, a great storyteller, and knows his country and its history well. He went above and beyond before we even set foot in the UK and was extremely accommodating as we needed to make a few adjustments to our schedule. Our decision to book with Iconic brought a ton of value to our trip and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for an authentic and fun experience. Best decision we made on our trip!

All the best and I look forward to meeting you all again one day. Will

We highly recommend Iconic Tours! Will brought Scotland to life for our Texas family of five. He picked us up from our Edinburgh Airbnb in the morning, and dropped us off that evening after an amazing day! Our three older teens loved his stories and accent, and were fascinated by all we got to see and learn. Will listened to our interests and actually adapted the tour as we went along to show us sites that weren’t normally included. I’m an Outlander fan, so he pulled over to show me “Lallybroch” (Midhope Castle) spontaneously. My husband loves whiskey, so he pulled over to do a tasting at a distillery unexpectedly. We’ve been on a lot of tours throughout the years, and it’s rare to find a tour guide that is as flexible and conscientious of our family’s needs and interests as Will was for us. He showed us all the beautiful highlights along the way to Glencoe, brought us to a great place for lunch (I forgot the name), and took us on a family hike where we took lots of pictures and enjoyed the breathtaking beauty of Scotland❤️. Out of our 10-day stay in Edinburgh, this tour was the highlight of our vacation, and we would highly recommend it! Thanks, Will, and Iconic Tours!

Dear Julie, Many thanks for taking the time to write a review, it was a real pleasure to meet you all and I am so happy to hear our tour was the highlight of your trip here. You were all lovely folks so it was my pleasure to diverge slightly from the plan to make sure you could have some more memorable experiences. I am glad you liked your local lunch at Mhor 84, it's always nice to eat at a local spot and I am happy to hear you enjoyed it. I am glad Glencoes beauty was breathtaking, the wind was also taking our breath away at some points but having a hike really helps you experience the wonder of the Highland. All the best and hope to see you again some day. Will

Will was great and full historical knowledge of Scotland. He was very detailed in his subject matter and this made to a more enjoyable experience. We also slightly deviated from our itinerary to visit the town of Fort William and this was accommodated which is why we chose a bespoke tour. I would recommend this tour for a more personal experience.

We had a wonderful time in Isle of Skye thanks to kuya Will. Our trip was very memorable as it was our first time travelling together. The highlight of this trip was kuya Will who was very accommodating and generous to us (buying a Talisker whiskey and chocolates). He also introduced us to one of his favorite coffee shops in Portree. We learned something about Scotland and Edinburgh. We definitely recommend Iconic Tours 👍

We were fortunate to choose Iconic Tours, with Will as our guide when we visited in August. Will truly loves Scotland, which shows through in his stories and background of the places visited. Will was very accommodating in what we wanted to see, and how much time we wanted to spend at each place. In our daytrip we stopped to see Stirling Castle from afar, drove by the Kelpies, stopped for a great scotch tasting at Deanston Distillery, got a fantastic tour of the Highlands, had a nice lunch & beer at Clachaig Inn, saw Loch Lubnaig, stopped in Callander for coffee and delicious pastries at Mhor Bread, saw local highland dance exhibition in Callander, and stopped in Queensferry to see the Queensferry Crossing & Forth Bridge. It was an awesome time.

We had a very nice experience with Gary the guide, he is very kind, polite and really charismatic. I recommend this private tour because it is really comfortable and you have the possibility to stop in all the places you want and the guide provide you an incredible experience.

I became familiar with Iconic tours a couple years ago when Will helped get my teenage son to St. Andrews from Edinburgh to play golf at one of the courses there. (I had found Will through trip advisor reviews.). When my mom (86) and I planned a trip to London she mentioned how her bucket list included Scotland and the Highlands. I knew who to call! Will had the perfect itinerary for us. Two days by car up to Glencoe and back. He was not available to take us so Moira was our guide. I knew if she worked for Will she had to be good! She was better then good, like Will, she was great. She was so knowledgeable, interesting, kind and accommodating. We saw parts of Scotland we never would have had we tried it in our own. We learned history from the Scottish perspective. We were immediately comfortable with Moira and remained so throughout our visit. I highly, highly recommend Iconic tours. They know how to run a business with excellence and help create memories that will last a lifetime.

Dear Sally, It was a real pleasure to have you come for another tour with us. I would have loved to have done the tour with you guys, but due to scheduling it had to be Moira and as found she gives an amazing tour and that's why she is such a big part of our team. We hope you make it back again some day for another tour. Will

We only had one day in our recent U.K. itinerary during which we could experience Scotland. As we are not morning people, and do not benefit from starting at 8AM with the group tours while recovering from jet lag, we arranged a private tour, with Will guiding us on the best options to include in a relatively short time frame.

Our guide for the day, Chris, picked us up at the hotel in Edinburgh, from there we stopped at the Queensferry bridges, giving us some time to stroll through the quaint village, and get some great photos of the bridges. Then on to Doune Castle, where, as a lifelong Monty Python fan, fulfilled my obligatory pilgrimage! A quick stop in Callander, where we picked up some meat pies from a lovely little bakery (a wonderful little town, btw), and proceeded on up to the Highlands, taking in the magnificent scenery at Glencoe, and a stop at the Clachaig Inn where we tucked in to some exemplary haggis, neeps and tatties.

Chris kept us informed and entertained throughout the long drive, providing excellent historical background to all of the sites we visited, and enlightened us to innumerable aspects of Scottish culture, economy, politics and history.

I knew that this attempt to take in the best of Scotland in a single day could only scrape the tip of the proverbial iceberg, we felt that we got to see and experience so much more than we expected. I look forward to spending much more time in Scotland, and would not hesitate to rely on Iconic Tours to guide us again on our future visits.
