Laurence made our tour really interesting and amusing. He is very attuned to the needs of the group and adapts accordingly. Not just a tour guide, a wonderful host.

My husband and I travelled to London with our two teenage boys (ages 14 and 17) for February vacation. After a lot of research we decided to hire Laurence for 1/2 day on the day of our arrival and for a full day on our second day of a week-long trip. Our goal on the first day was to see... More

My family and I traveled to London Christmas Eve and returned home to Chicago on New Year's Eve. Since the five of us were newbies to London, we decided we needed an experienced and capable guide for at least two of our days there (December 27 and 28). Boy, were we ever lucky, lucky, lucky to find Laurence during our... More

We decided that if we were going to see the historic sites of London as tourists, it would be worth hiring a private guide to help us efficiently canvass the town. As a given, tour guides in London are not inexpensive. In Laurence Summers's case, it is money well worth spent. As a matter of fact, with Laurence you definitely... More

My wife and I booked a full-day walking tour with Laurence based on the strength of these reviews and he delivered. We had requested a blend of standard London attractions and "off-path sights" and Laurence built a great general itinerary with plenty of flexibility. He knows his city well and enriched each site with his extensive knowledge. But it was... More

I like using guides when traveling with family and Laurence was as good as his reviews suggest. We used him for a full day in the country (Oxford, Blenheim Palace and a small town in the Cotswolds for lunch); and a 1/2 day in London (Westminster). The place he took us to in the Cotswolds was alone worth the price... More

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
