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 with so many interesting stories and pieces of history I wouldn't have known otherwise!

  •   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!

  •   What a treat! Larry was a wonderful storyteller, telling truths from our history that were all new news to me! He added passion and local color, telling the stories with such detail that I could picture them in front of me. It was a cold and rainy Charleston day, but these stories were worth every rainy minute!

  •   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.

  •   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.

  •   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.

  •   We came across Larry's tour as a recommendation when we booked our trip to Charleston. Larry provides a unique perspective and obviously has learned everything he can about his beloved city. We left with many memories and new knowledge of an already interesting city. He respects humanity and wants everyone who had an impact on history to have their stories known. We all left with his quote in our mind about measuring people by good and smart. Wonderful experience, would highly recommend!
