Laurence Summers is a hidden gem in London. We have used Laurence as our guide in England before, but each time we see him, not only is it akin to seeing a lost friend and catching up, but he uncovers and leads us to see and experience things that we never would have known about without him. This time it... More

Laurence was fantastic! My husband and our teenage son and daughter were in England for a wedding and we only had two days to see London. Laurence did a great job of planning our time wisely and most importantly, he was able to engage our kids! Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to tour London with... More

My wife and our three children (ages 13, 10, 8) thoroughly enjoyed our two days of tours with Laurence. We had a full day tour in London which Laurence completely customized for our family. First Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and the Changing of the Guards, St. James Park, Trafalgar Square, etc. Then we went on a Harry Potter tour seeing... More

Laurence took my husband and myself around London's finest! We toured Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, lunch at a classic pub, walked along Thames River, past Globe Theater, and through Bourough Market. We had a wonderful day, full of sights and knowledge from Laurence! We didn't want the day to end! I highly recommend Laurence to anyone!!

Laurence was fantastic! Efficient, fun, extremely knowledgable. We have three young girls (11, 9, 6) and he geared each day toward a nice balance of our interests and our children's interests. He was flexible and had "Plan A", "Plan B", and "Plan C", based on how our day/interest were going. Cannot say enough good things about Laurence. Thanks for a... More

When we visited London we were travelling with a group of 10. As young as 6 and as old as 75. Laurence was able to engage everyone. The kids loved learning about history. They were engaged and asking questions that I never thought my kids would ask in million years. Laurence made a everyones time in London so enjoyable. He... More

When you choose Laurence as your guide, you will not be disappointed. His expertise and kind manner make for a wonderful day of touring. My mom and I felt comfortable with him from the moment we met--and he improvised his plans on the fly to make sure we saw everything we wanted to see in London. He provided us with... More

Laurence met us at our hotel where we chatted a bit and planned the day. It was clear from the start how lucky we were to have such a kind and educated person by our side to help us get the most from our day of sightseeing. Laurence lived up to every hope and expectation. He's relaxed, warm, a smart... More

Excellent walk guided by Laurence Summers. I am a Londoner, but discovered so much more about London's history and the literature and life of Charles Dickens in this fascinating walk. It was informative, but also witty as well, plus he was a relaxed guide who managed the almost impossible task of managing to steer us away from the really busy... More

From the moment we met Laurence in the lobby of our London hotel till we said our good-byes on a London Street, it was like spending a day with an old friend. A friend with a warm smile, interesting & funny stories to tell & leaving you with a hope of our paths crossing once more. Laurence is as much... More
