Diane has a wonderful knowledge of the History of London. Her virtual walks are brilliant. She has spent a lot of time preparing the talk and photos. The 'walks' are fully illustrated with her own photos and copies of Historical places. I have been on most of her zoom talks since the Lockdown. I look forward to them and I have learnt a lot about the History of London and its people both past and present. She also reads poems and tells you stories. She has shown me lots of unusual places. I have been to secret and quirky places. I hope to visit them on my own. Diane makes you feel that you have been on a 'real' walk, even though its been virtually in the comfort of my home.

Diane did a Virtual Tour of Barnet and the surrounding area finishing off at Monken Hadley. The Tour started outside High Barnet Station and then went into Barnet . Places like historic buildings, parks and other features of the area were pointed out. Apart from not using your legs you actually felt as if you were on a real walk. The tour lasted about 90 minutes and was made up around 52 slides. Diane gave a talk as we went along on the tour of the places visited and their history. Diane's talk was interesting and informative but did not go on like some guides do so that you eventually cut off. For me I saw places that I would like to visit on the tour once the lock down has ended. The best thing is you can sit back in the comfort of your own home, enjoy the tour plus have a drink at the same time! Will definitely be booking in for another one of Diane's virtual tours.

I've been on quite a few of Diane's walks over the past few years - but since Covid, her virtual programme of walks has been a real godsend. I particularly enjoyed her most recent 'walk' around de Beauvoir Town, with so many interesting places to explore! Diane is so knowledgeable - if there is a tale to be told, Diane has researched it. I loved the story of the Mole Man - extraordinary! Already looking forward to her next series of 'walks'!

Diane's virtual tours are great and just what we need in these stressful times. You learn a lot and you see wonderful photographs of places that you'll want to visit yourself in person if you possibly can The recent Covent Garden tour was really brilliant and the time just shot by!

We have been on several walks with Diane over the years but when Covid raised it's ugly head we thought that was it! Thanks to Diane's virtual zoom walks we are once again enjoying her fantastic knowledge of London's history and can't wait to join her for a normal walk again
