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

  •   Very unique tour. 5 stars.

  •   Did not have enough time in Charleston for more than one tour and this one was so exceptional!! Not sure I "believe" all the stories but it sure was entertaining and based in history!

    thumb Tracy
  •   This tour is an amazing experience with so many interesting stories and pieces of history I wouldn't have known otherwise!

    thumb Allie
  •   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.

    thumb Greg & Jo
  •   Larry is an extra ordinary human being clearly passionate not only about storytelling - but about our world. It was such a pleasure to learn from him about the hidden figures of our history and way beyond. He elevates his stories out of our history books and into a collective call to action today.

    It was the highlight of our trip and gave us inspiration that will linger on.

    thumb Caitlin
  •   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.

    thumb Ofelia
  •   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.
