Ikot

I know "ikot" means to go around something but i asked someone if i could use ikot like

"Umikot tayo" or "Pwede tayo umiikot?" or would it be "Magikot tayo" or "Pwede tayo magikot?" as in being in a new place and wanting to go around see things, and they said to use "Maglalakad lang tayo". Would "ikot" be okay here?

Also to provide more context i saw a post on Facebook that says:

"Nagikot sa University Belt ang Aksyon Kabataan upang alamin ang hashtags at mensahe ng kabataang Pinoy para kay PCOO Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson."

so im guessing its okay to use?

    In my (somewhat limited) experience, "ikot" is more literally "going around", like you're going in a circle, with the idea that you'll get back to where you started. "Lakad" is used fairly colloquially (at least in Manila) for "going out", like going around with a destination or some destinations in mind.
