If you are a fan of Trainspotting (book or film), you just have to go on this tour! Tim will make you see the story with different eyes. He'll give you a lot of interesting background info about Irvine Welsh and the social life in Leith. And of course you'll visit some crucial places, where he'll read you some lines of the book - and you may help him. It was great fun and I learned a lot. Totally recommend it!

If you want to get a real touch of the history of Leith just call Tim.

He 'll guide you into an interesting trip around this place and you we'll have the opportunity to discover everything about Trainspotting, both the book and the movie.I highly recommend it and i think every Welsh fun would have to join.
It is also very useful for those who wants to understand more about drugs addiction, a plague that really afflicted Leith during 80's.

We'll have a great time during our tour!!

We had a very great time and it was a pleasure for us meeting Tim.

We recommend every Trainspotting Fan this tour - its DOPE. :)

Greetings from Austria,

I’d like to thank Tim for providing myself and my friend with a great walking tour round Leith. As a massive Trainspotting and Irvine Welsh fan I’d looked on line for a tour and Tim was kind enough to arrange one for us for the weekend we were visiting. We met with Tim and a small group on the Saturday morning and spent over 2 hours following the book round the streets of Leith. It was very interesting to hear about Leith, the history and the interpretations of the books. We all got involved reading passages from the book and the film script. We both really enjoyed it and thank Tim for his enthusiasm and insight. Highly recommended.

Went to Edinburgh on the weekend of the 6th October for my stag . Tim did a tour on Saturday 7th in the afternoon. Was a brilliant tour and very funny indeed. Tim was obviously very knowledgeable of Irvine welsh’s Work and it’s connection with leiths culture. A nice touch was when he let us read excerpts from the book and he took us to an old school working men’s club. He really was absorbed in making us happy and entertained and we did a perfect rendition of Lou Reed’s Perfect day , which it was for us

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Leith with Tim. What an insightful guide he was and a brilliant tour overall it was. The insight he provided into the ‘junk’ affliction that gripped Edinburgh in the 1980s was thoroughly superb. Would do it again if I got chance and would highly recommend. Thanks, Tim!

Myself and my byofriend Leon did a tour with Tim during our recent trip to Edinburgh. The day we wanted to go, Tim didn't have any other guests, so instead of rescheduling us, instead he tailored the tour to exactly what we wanted! I asked a lot of questions and Tim had the answers to all and more! We had great fun reciting passages from the books and screenplays, and also getting to visit the Dockers Club. Because we were visiting from Ireland, Tim also taught us a bit about the historical Irish connection to Leith which was a really nice touch.
Thank you so much for your time, Tim. I've been telling everyone about this tour since I've been home! And I'm really looking forward to reading your book when it comes out next year!

I booked Tim's trainspotting tour a few months ago on request of my mate (the groom and a massive trainspotting fan) as part of his stag do in Edinburgh. The stag do was last weekend and we finally had the pleasure of Tim's tour on Saturday afternoon. Tim has a great deal of knowledge on the history of Leith and the work of Irvine Welsh. The tour was fantastic and anyone with an interest in Leith &, in particular, trainspotting and Irvine Welsh will not be disappointed. Tim's tour became the talking point of the whole weekend. Tim is a very funny individual and although he brought a lot of humour to the tour he remained respectful to the content of the book and the area of Leith on the whole. Reciting passages from the book during our visit to the Dockers was brilliant Thanks Tim.. You are a class act!!!

Tim is a very polite and kind person. I would have preferred to visit a bit more but all the information were truly interesting. He told us not only about Trainspotting and Porno/T2, but about the block, the sociological and historical situation of when the book was written. It is also an interactive tour and very funny when we were asked to read some lines of the screenplay.
