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

We hired Laurence for a couple days of out-of-city tours (Windsor, Hampton Hall, Blenheim, Oxford). All are very much worth seeing, and Laurence's guidance was very helpful. It was pleasant spending our couple days with Laurence--he was reliable, knowledgeable, and flexible; and arranged a couple nice lunch places for us. Very happy we took these tours and had Laurence as... More

We hired Laurence to take us to Windsor Castle and Stonehenge near the end of our 12 day trip and he was perfect. He asked exactly what we wanted to see and do, then suggested a great lunch stop outside the castle. I would highly recommend his services.

We just got back from a trip to London and Paris. Lawrence took us around for two half days and one full day in London.

We just got back from a week in London. We did 2 half day tours with Laurence, which included a wonderful Westminster Abbey tour, and by going with Laurence we did not have to wait in any line. We also explored some secret, unknown sites of London, some relating to Harry Potter. We highly recommend Laurence, experience was great!
