After decades in the financial industry and a stint in academia, 9 years ago, I became a licensed Charleston Tour Guide and 6 years ago an independent operator. I am your Ambassador to a greater understanding and a good time. Once a walking guide, a ghost tour guide, and for 2 years, one of the city's most requested Carriage Drivers, today, I am a writer, a storyteller, and a social activist on the lookout for the hidden messages, overlooked events, and heartfelt meaning of the world around us, dedicating myself to sharing stories of empowerment: Our American Dream.

Larry was great. Would recommend him to anyone. First he was very accommodating and we asked if he was available last minute for a tour and he responded immediately. Second while on the actual tour he had so many great stories to tell and talked about things that we asked about as well. We had such a wonderful time. Thanks Larry!
