He is author and holds a Master of Architecture degree from SCAD. Jonathan not only knows his stuff design-wise, he makes it really easy for the average tourist to understand how Savannah was born and grew into the beautiful and beautifully singular city it is. He not only stops and points, he brings along visual aids to help you understand how a particular building or square evolved. You won't be bored or even tired- the tour progresses (and walks) through hundreds of years of history at leisurely pace. « less

Jonathan is a wonderful tour guide who knows his architecture and history. He is patient and an excellent teacher. We all learned to really look at Savannah with new eyes and a real appreciation of those who walked here before we did. Don't miss this tour!

How lucky to have an accomplished architect lead such an interesting walking tour of Savannah's historic district. Jonathan is a great teacher and brings the history to life. He is an author on the subject and I can't wait to read his beautiful and descriptive book.

Architectural Tours of Savannah was one of the best walking tours we have been on. Jonathan is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. We took this tour as soon as we arrived in Savannah and found that it gave us a great context for understanding the city in the remainder of our tour. I highly recommend this tour to anyone... More

Simply wonderful. Jonathan's architecture passion is simply portrayed in each and every description of the tour. Great value for the money! The layout of the tour is simply great. Kudo's to Jonathan for a jib well done. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested not only in architecture but all things related to the errors he takes you... More

Jonathan’s architectural tour is an excellent way to start your tour of Savannah. He is passionate about Savannah and knowledgeable about the history, culture and architecture. With a better understanding of the layout and purpose of the city after the tour, my husband and I were better equipped to decide on the areas and buildings we wanted to spend more... More

My friends and I enjoy walking tours and this one was very good. The city has a long history and quite a variety of buildings. The only thing that would make it better is if it was even longer. Good value for the price though.

Hats off to Jonathan! He successfully kept the attention of architects and non-architects for two hours on a hot August Saturday. Progressing through a timeline, the tour highlights historic events and cultural change, and the architectural responses to them. His knowledge of Savannah is but a portion of his expertise. I purchased his walking tour guidebook and plan to return... More

This was our first time to Savannah, so we were looking for a tour that would give us a nice overview of the history & architecture of Savannah. Jonathan's tour was fantastic & well exceeded our expectations. Great intro to Savannah - couldn't recommend it more highly. (Jonathan also gave us some GREAT restaurant recommendations!!)

My husband has difficulty hearing, so when we discovered that we would be the only 2 people on this tour, we were very happy! Jonathan was very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour. He gave us so much information and willingly answered all our questions. We walked and talked for 90 minutes, and enjoyed all of our day with... More

This was my first visit to Savannah and this tour proved to be one of its highlights. Jonathan is an excellent guide, highly informative, exceedingly knowledgeable and able to relate well to his audience. Our stroll through the historic area lasted about 2 hours as he explained the city's architectural history and quirks in fascinating detail. You do not have... More
