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.

  •   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.

  •   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!

  •   Larry knows his subject well and he has excellent storytelling skills and excellent knowledge of historical characters as they relate to the tour topic . It was a cold, wet day and he was so engaging that we didn’t mind the weather at all.
