About Holy City History Tours

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. What is a walking tour experience? It’s a Walking Tour, Museum, & Art Gallery Combo Ticket. Each of our walking tours is part of a larger storybook and told in storybook format. We’ve gathered historical information with a common theme and woven it all together to create an overarching story of empowerment. As part of our mission of community engagement and outreach, we’ve partnered with the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art and the Philip Simmons House. With each tour ticket purchased, we include entry into each of the above institutions. Additionally, on behalf of our customers, we donate $1 to each institution for each ticket sale.
