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.

Our Reviews

  •   This tour is an amazing experience that I would highly recommend to anyone that is tired of hearing the same whitewashed male dominated history over and over again. This tour is definitely NOT THAT! The tour was fascinating and informative.

  •   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!
