Our family of 4 (including 25 & 17 yr. old boys) just returned from a month in UK and Ireland. We always use private guides when possible and Dianne is one of the very best. This was the first of 3 days with her. She is flexible (we did the Beefeater tour of The Tower on our own the day we arrived), organized (she had me get tickets in advance whenever possible), knowledgeable (our youngest son will major in history, so it can be a challenge to hold his interest), and a joy to spend time with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brett, It was a real pleasure to guide you and your lovely family. I do so appreciate guiding a group who are thoroughly interested in the history of other countries, such as the United Kingdom. You all asked many interesting questions which helped to create a lovely report between. I look forward to guiding you again when you return to the UK. Dianne

Dianne did a fine job on our full-day tour of Westminster and Central London. My family enjoyed our time with her. I appreciated that Dianne reached out to me well in advance asking if my family had any special interests. I shared the items for focus, and Dianne did a nice job building our day to suit those items.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Rene. I am pleased that you appreciated the tour that I devised around your personal interests. I enjoyed being with you and your lovely family for the day too!

We had a wonderful day with Dianne who catered the tour to our wishes, including Westminster Abbey and the Royal Mews. Dianne answered every question my 9 year old daughter asked and maintained her interest the full day. She helped guide us until the very end making sure we got off the Tube at the right stop. It was a wonderful day and we really enjoyed her company!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kathleen, Thanks so much for your great review. I too really enjoyed the day with you all. Kind regards, Dianne

We had a great first day in London thanks to Dianne. She got us acclimated to the city and provided thorough tours of St. Paul's and Westminster Abbey. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Renee and Cindy, Thanks for your rating. I genuinely enjoyed meeting you both and taking you around. You were very lucky to have such great weather. You must have had a spectacular day in Oxford with that weather on top of it. Enjoy the rest of your days in London and let me know if you need any more help. Regards, Dianne

Great job. Dianne was extremely knowledgeable and made everything very interesting.

Dianne was a fantastic tour guide and host. She contacted me prior to the tour to check where my interests lie - then had me pre-book entry into key areas to avoid wasted time on the tour (St Pauls, Westminster Abbey and Churchill's War Rooms in my case). Dianne and i arranged to meet at the St James's underground stop and quickly found each other. From there it was a busy 8 hours of touring. Dianne added key insights at each of our stops. I highly recommend taking one of Dianne's tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Thank you so much for your feedback. I am very glad that you enjoyed the day as much as I did. I have to tell you that this was the first guided tour that I have done for this company and it was a pleasure to have you as my first traveller since I have joined them. Do contact me if you would ever like another tour when in London. Kind regards, Dianne
