Diane is such a great guide with a wide ranging knowledge which she manages to impart without notes and in a very accessible and engaging manner. This was my second walk with Diane having previously been on the Hackney Wick/Forman’s Fish Factory with lunch visit. Both absolutely excellent and I look forward to more. The latest walk was in the Belsize Park area and then after a lunch break a talk from the Manager of the Isokon Gallery. I really liked this arrangement as the history of the Isokon is fascinating and enhanced what we had heard about in the morning’s walk. I highly recommend!

After finding Diane via Discover London podcast segments on shopping history, we took a great East End walking tour through the old theater district and Sunday markets we would have missed on our own! Learned so much from her boundless energy, knowledge and insights -- highly recommend

An interesting walk around the regeneration area of Hackney Wick and the Olympic park ended with lunch in the Foremans’ Fish Restaurant nearby. It ended with an entertaining talk in the ‘factory’ where fresh salmon is smoked, and an expert demonstration of salmon carving. Diane was, as always, knowledgeable, and easy to hear when talking although the group was large. The pace was just right, with stops for explanations of interesting features - buildings/street art along the way. Even my husband, not one for this type of excursion is asking when we can go on another of Diane’s walks!

Thank you for your review. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the tour and that even your husband was entertained! When someone who doesn't usuallly enjoy guided walks says they had a good time that is, indeed , a compliment. I look forward to guiding you both on future tours.

Diane led us on a fascinating 2 hr walk from Blackfriars to Tower Bridge along the lesser walked north embankment. We were all 'mature' Londoners from The Finchley Society yet she showed us places and informed us of things we knew nothing about. The river area is always fascinating, and you almost get two tours in one, because there's so much to point out and explain, about the opposite side of the river as well! The meeting point was ideally arranged as decent toilet and coffee facilities were available if required at the start, and we ended conveniently near transport and other facilities. A great morning.

We had a walking tour around Secret Southwark guided by Diane with our local U3A group from Kent and learnt so much in the 2 hours we spent with her. Her detailed knowledge was remarkable and we look forward to meeting up with her again on a future occasion.
