We toured the popular spots with Laurence as well as foody favorites, rock n roll and Harry Potter interests. He was knowledgeable, patient and a charming guide to us for 2 days.

We just got back from a family vacation to London over December break. Laurence led us on some amazing tours, including a Beatles/Sherlock Holmes tour where he showed us a lot of interesting and hidden finds. He was super knowledgeable about music and Sherlock Holmes. We also visited Westminster Abbey and Churchill War Rooms and he told us so much... More

I look my parents as a special anniversary treat around the City of London to see the Wren churches, the London Wall and the Tower of London. Laurence was an excellent guide with an exceptional knowledge of London and my parents really enjoyed it

We spent a pleasant day with Laurence touring Oxford and the Cotswolds. We had visited these areas before on several occasions, so it was a low key visit. Laurence performed well in all respects and we highly recommend him.

Our family spent our first day in London with Laurence, and it was the best decision we made. In two hours, we got more out of Westminster Abbey with him than we would have by ourselves in a whole day. After a fab meal at a nearby pub, we spent the afternoon roaming London streets seeing sights off the beaten... More

Laurence Summers is a hidden gem in London. We have used Laurence as our guide in England before, but each time we see him, not only is it akin to seeing a lost friend and catching up, but he uncovers and leads us to see and experience things that we never would have known about without him. This time it... More

Laurence was fantastic! My husband and our teenage son and daughter were in England for a wedding and we only had two days to see London. Laurence did a great job of planning our time wisely and most importantly, he was able to engage our kids! Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to tour London with... More

My wife and our three children (ages 13, 10, 8) thoroughly enjoyed our two days of tours with Laurence. We had a full day tour in London which Laurence completely customized for our family. First Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and the Changing of the Guards, St. James Park, Trafalgar Square, etc. Then we went on a Harry Potter tour seeing... More

Laurence took my husband and myself around London's finest! We toured Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, lunch at a classic pub, walked along Thames River, past Globe Theater, and through Bourough Market. We had a wonderful day, full of sights and knowledge from Laurence! We didn't want the day to end! I highly recommend Laurence to anyone!!

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
