    About Us

    Holy City History Tours has been dedicated since our founding to telling the stories of the women and men who were written out of the history books.

    We bring the stories of these forgotten figures to life with informative entertainment. Each tour showcases Charlestonians who endured enormous hardships, overcame nearly impossible circumstances, and helped propel society into the future. Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you cry, and sometimes you feel awe-inspired.

    With each tour, we aim to give each guest a real and authentic experience of Charleston and its history.

    •   This tour was an absolutely incredible experience. The stories were interesting and riddled with history, and Larry did an amazing job interconnecting everything and engaging us actively throughout the entire thing. What we thought would be a point-to-point typical tour with some interesting architecture thrown in was more of an adventure through 200 years of rich Charleston history. Take this tour, you won't regret it.

    •   Adaptable, flexible, very deeply knowledgeable! Funny and entertaining! He’s great with young kids and very accommodating - so if you find young ones getting restless, Larry takes feedback in stride and moves things along. We had some very young ones and never felt uncomfortable! Thanks, Larry, for coming out on Christmas Day to lead our family through your tour stepping back in time! Loved learning about the remarkable historic women of Charleston. These stories need to be told! Larry is truly a part of the whole Charleston experience!

    •   This experience was beyond what we had dreamed of. Larry is an exceptional storyteller and a phenomenal person. It was a true joy and a gift to spend this time with him, we were often moved and incredibly inspired the entire time. Not only does Larry bring forgotten members of Charleston’s history to life (like, really really really!) but he also gives you a sense of the character of this city. A character that is deeply committed to caring for one another. In fact, I am already planning a trip back here JUST TO take another tour with this man. Please please don’t hesitate to sign up for this tour. He changed our lives.

    •   We had three adult women, a teen, and a five-year-old in a stroller on the tour. We agreed this was one of the highlights of our vacation. Larry shared his passion about our nation's history through the lens of strong, brave women (and the men who emboldened them). There was so much information that we hung on every word. Larry is a lively storyteller who invited us into the discussion. Loved the advice and encouragement to our young girls. Don't think twice about booking this tour! You'll leave thinking more about history's power of the pen.

    •   Larry is quite the storyteller, loaded with animation and a sense of humor. I thought it was really cool that this tour is done by a man passionately speaking about the strong women in American history. Would definitely recommend.
