When you sign up for a guided tour with Zippy Larson, you’re getting one of Baltimore’s  great personalities to go along with the city’s history. Larson offers about 36 different kinds of tours (most involve driving from place to place, but she will do concentrated walking tours); these range from specialized voyages like that through the sites that inspired Hairspray, and the Duchess of Windsor Tour (Wallis Warfield Simpson was a Baltimore girl) to more standard Fell’s Point and Mount Vernon visits.
Larson has access to lots of one-of-a-kind areas, and her irrepressible charm and demeanor open those few doors that are initially closed to her.
