Welcome to Holy City History Tours!
Strong Women of the South History Tour
Free People of Color History Tour
Charleston History Walk South of Broad
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.
Larry is really enthusiastic, knowledgeable, inclusive and engaged with the role of “strong women” in the history of the region. He brought it to life for our group. The time flew by. With so much of the tours focuses on the actions of men, this tour really was refreshing and illuminating. Highly recommended for the fresh storytelling and subject.
Larry is beyond knowledgeable on a variety of topics. My sister and I took the tour about women in Charleston, and their contributions to society. Not only was Larry able to answer all of our questions with no hesitation, but he also provided us with information on a range of topics that we would have never known, or even thought to ask. I would nightly recommend anyone to take one of Larry’s walking tours, and will definitely be taking another one of his tours when I am back in town.
Our tour with Larry was so much fun! We were fortunate to be the only four folks on the tour so we got some really special time to talk with him about all the interesting info he was presenting. It was so nice to learn about some of the unrecognized ladies of Charleston who did extraordinary things during their lifetimes. Would highly recommend this tour....just don't be put off by Larry's Santa Claus,/ZZ Top look! He really knows his stuff!
