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

Laurence was a terrific guide for the day! With his expert guidance, we were able to see many attractions, including some "out of the way" places. My niece (16) loved chatting with him about the royals, historical places, literature, etc. We had a great time on the Beatles tour, viewed the arrival of the guards at the palace, toured churchills...

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
