This was such an awesome experience. We loved getting a closer look at an area of Edinburgh through the lens of Trainspotting. Paul was incredibly engaging, sharing a lovely mix of his personal story, trainspotting anecdotes and the history of Leith. Even our 14 year old who has never seen the movie was engaged. The mission of the organization is also great and made us feel even more confident that we chose the right experience. Strongly recommend.

Engaging chat, unknown facts, personal histories and fascinating stories: this tour was a great way to spend a day in Leith. Especially amazing was the great range of subjects discussed and the depth of knowledge that Paul has about so many things. Well deserving of his awards and recognition, he is a true expert. Highly recommended!

What a brilliant experience. I can't recommend this enough. Paul really knows his stuff, his knowledge of local and Scottish history, in addition to Irvine Welsh's books and their context is superb. He also has a lot of personal anecdotes and experiences that he regaled us with. Very entertaining, very personable, and always good to contribute to such a good cause. Thank you, Paul, and Zak!

Storytelling that was clearly a combination of lived experiences and research. Paul was down to earth and relatable, funny and fascinating. As big trainspotting fans it was great to hear all the little facts we didn’t know as well as have common chat about our favourite scenes and characters. Thank you.

I've visited Leith before but decided to come back as I'd this time brought a friend with me. The experience had something for both of us, she got to see parts of Leith for the first time and I got to see a totally different side to what I'd experienced previously. As described in the advert, the experience is exceptionally influenced by the Trainspotting films - good for me as I liked the films and both them and Paul's background give a fascinating look into the areas history, development and characters. Being both incredibly likeable and knowledgable in his field, it was a pleasure to meet Paul and experience a part of his Leith.

Outstanding tour. Paul had a wealth of trivia not only about Trainspotting but also the area of Leith. Easily the best tour I've been on.
