It was really nice time with Paul. He is so friendly and kind. He told me a lot about Leith, history of Edinburgh and Scotland and some stories from Transporting time. Thank you so much for nice time!

Would highly recommend Paul’s entertaining tour around Leith with a Trainspotting theme. Paul’s stories were interesting, humorous and provided some fascinating history of Leith. If you loved Trainspotting, or just enjoy some funny and interesting stories, don’t miss this one!

labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
