LES TO THE RESCUE
Walking Tours on Wheels
LES TO THE RESCUE On Saturday 28th October Les came to the rescue of the Dalry Burns Club who had booked a tour of the Tannahill Cottage but unfortunately their tour guide did not turn up and even if he had he would not have had access to the Cottage. With not having a contact number for their tour guide as it was booked on line through a website which had no contact phone number, they decided to contact the Paisley Library who put them in contact with Les who is the towns official Tour Guide. When Les heard about the situation they were in he could not let them leave Paisley being let down so badly, so he offered his service and took them on a tour which included the Fountain Gardens to show them the statue of Robert Burns and also the beautiful Fountain and after a few phone calls to the key holders of the Tannahill Cottage Les managed to get the cottage opened by David Osborn. Many thanks to David for that. After a bad let down it all turned out good in the end with everyone going away very impressed with Paisley and thanking Les for saving the day. ... See MoreSee Less

Les calls it a dayNEWS RELEASE.
After much consideration I have, for personal reasons, taken the very difficult decision that Walking Tours on Wheels will stop offering historical walking tours. The organisation will continue to operate however as of 1st August 2017 I will focus on providing bespoke quality presentations and talks on the history of the Renfrewshire area to interested groups from any sector.
The contact details and social media will remain as they currently are and I would welcome enquiries from anyone interested.
I look forward to continue enjoying the support that I have had since establishing the organisation in 1994, especially as the bid for the City of Culture 2021 comes to its climax.

Les and his team have brought Paisley's history to life with Walking Tours on Wheels; it's a shame that the tours are stopping but it's great news that Les will continue with his presentations to local groups.
I am sure it wasnt an easy choice Les. Thanks for sharing your knowledge of all things Paisley. x
