Laurence was a terrific tour guide. He was extremely knowledgable and patient. He did an excellent job engaging everyone in my family from the youngest first time visitor to my husband who has been to London many times. We saw so many nooks and crannies that we never would have found without him.

Laurence guided us (my husband, mother in law and children) 2 summers ago and was FANTASTIC! So wonderful that when I returned to London recently on a "ladies' trip", I booked him again. He is so full of knowledge about all elements of London -- the tour was so much fun!! Be forewarned that you need to book early: his... More

Laurence is an ideal tour guide. He looked after our family, age range 15 to 56, and managed to connect with us all in a delightful, low-key, useful and information fashion. We'd highly recommend Laurence to just about any group at any time. Lovely is the operative word. Also, well-informed and quite skillful at reading group dynamics.

Laurence shares his knowledge of London and its beautiful bits with patience and kindness. I would recommend having Laurence take you on a tour as soon as you get into town. He gave us a great overview of the area and other places of interest for the remainder of our time in London. Our family, 10 year old girl, 13... More

The long story: Family of four: Mom, Dad, two teenagers (almost 17 and 15 and a half) had a great time with Laurence Summers (LS). We booked LS for three half-day morning tours: Tuesday, February 21, Wednesday, February 22, and Thursday, February 23. Why three mornings? It was all he had available when we were there. We had spent a... More

Laurence took my family and me around London on two different days. We told him our interests before we met, and he came up with great tours for both days to fit everyone's needs. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a tour around London, he is kind, patient and has a great sense of humor!

We toured the popular spots with Laurence as well as foody favorites, rock n roll and Harry Potter interests. He was knowledgeable, patient and a charming guide to us for 2 days.

We just got back from a family vacation to London over December break. Laurence led us on some amazing tours, including a Beatles/Sherlock Holmes tour where he showed us a lot of interesting and hidden finds. He was super knowledgeable about music and Sherlock Holmes. We also visited Westminster Abbey and Churchill War Rooms and he told us so much... More

I look my parents as a special anniversary treat around the City of London to see the Wren churches, the London Wall and the Tower of London. Laurence was an excellent guide with an exceptional knowledge of London and my parents really enjoyed it

We spent a pleasant day with Laurence touring Oxford and the Cotswolds. We had visited these areas before on several occasions, so it was a low key visit. Laurence performed well in all respects and we highly recommend him.
