Laurence was a great tour guide. Native Londoner. Very professional. Punctual. Very knowledgeable, very pleasant and good with our teenagers. Recommend Cotswolds and Oxford tour. Windsor Castle was also amazing. Will take you at your own pace. Never felt hurried. Knows some excellent places for lunch along the way and he'll be happy to take you. Will hire Laurence again.

Friends who had used Laurence as their guide earlier in the year recommended him to us and we were not disappointed we did! Taking our three teenage children to London for their first visit over the Christmas holidays we figured we needed to squeeze in a lot of sightseeing. Laurence was fabulous at getting us around town quickly to see... More

If you want the full atmosphere of what it was like to be in the East End of London, during the frightening time when Jack the Ripper was carrying out his terrible murders, look no further. Laurence Summers takes you through the streets where these ghastly events took place and you can actually imagine what those misfortunate prostitutes went through... More

We are three "mature" women from the US making our first trip to London, and decided we needed a full day with a tour guide so we could cover as much territory as possible while there. Laurence was the perfect guide. He listened to all the sites we wanted to see as compiled from a London guide book. Laurence studied... More

We booked Laurence for a Jack the Ripper tour for my partners birthday and found it to be a great experience. The stories were great (I say stories, but it all really happened!) and his way of telling them is fantastic. He made the tour interesting, involving, atmospheric and at times funny. Laurence is very personable and a great guy... More

We booked a full day tour with Laurence. We enjoyed his friendly company and pleasant conversation. However, we are experienced travelers. We had a couple of guidebooks with us (Rick Steves and Lonely Planet), made frequent use of iPhones for maps and navigation, and were comfortable getting ourselves from A to B and choosing restaurants on our own. We wondered... More

I am deeply sorry to have disappointed the person in question and rather taken aback by this review. I have a great many very positive reviews on this site and the majority of them concern tours in London , a city of which, despite the comments, I feel I know a great deal about - not everything of course -...

We spent two half days in London with Laurence. There were 6 of us including 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 kids ages 9 and 12. Laurence was great - funny, informative and interesting. He took us to a number of sites and made some great suggestions for our free time. I'd highly recommend him.

We met up with Laurence after about 18 months of not being back in London and picked up where we left off. A wonderful walking tour of London's backstreets and the area around the Old Globe, a breakfast at the Wolseley and a delightful insight into places the average tourist never knew to check out. A great time was had.... More
