My husband and I traveled to London for the first time at the end of September, and since we were only going to be in London for two days before traveling north to visit family, we decided a tour guide might be a good idea. And it WAS!! After doing a thorough search on trip advisor, we discovered Laurence! So... More

Laurence was fantastic with our family (my wife and 3 boys 16, 14, and 12). We had never used a guide and was apprehensive at first because I couldn't find anyone who said they worked with families with teens.. I wondered if he would get the right mix for my active boys. If you are like me, Laurence is your... More

We can not say enough about Laurence. We did two half day tours with him and both were exceptional. His knowledge is encyclopedic and his humor delightful. The time he spent with our 6 year old son in the Tower of London explaining weapons and history is unprecedented in our experience with tour guides. He engaged the entire group from... More

Lawrence Summers was our guide on a tour of the old and legal parts of the City of London as part of a work summer party. Taking in areas from Holborn to the Old Bailey. His approach was intelligent and entertaining. Clearly a man with a great interest in the literary and dramatic arts he was able to quote any... More

Our family of 6 with kids ranging from 15 to 22 had a great tour of London with Laurence recently. He wears his blue badge proudly and he is super friendly, personable and knowlegeable - and definitely knows his way around London town. I was very impressed the way he sized up the different personalities of our group and adapted... More

My husband and I were visiting London for the first time and knew we would see much more with a good guide. We feel blessed that we connected with Laurence and had the best two days and feel we saw everything on our list plus much more! He really knows London and all it's history. He is very fun to...

My family and I had about 4 days in London during our summer vacation. I wanted to find a guide that could take us around most of the sights and tell us about the history of everything. Lawrence did just that and more! I am so glad that I chose to go with him. Our flight got delayed on our... More

Our family of five - with children ranging from 17 to 7- spent the past two days with Laurence and we were sad at the end because we enjoyed his company so much! Laurence and I corresponded via email and telephone before we arrived and he was very flexible and willing to do whatever would make the visit special and... More
