Owner description: You don't have to be an architect to enjoy the Architectural Tours of Savannah with Jonathan Stalcup. 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.

Jonathan is super smart, energetic, extremely knowledgeable and very well prepared. The tour was the highlight of everything I've done during 3-4 visits to Savannah. Our tour took place on a perfect January Sunday and was just incredibly interesting. Don't miss this!

Kudos to Jonathan for developing a fantastic architectural tour of Savannah that transcends the eras and all the building styles that have evolved during Savannah's history. Jon's Masters in Architecture from Scad came through so clearly, with both good humor, a great demeanor, and very keen insights into what makes Savannah tick. The 90 minutes will fly by, and you...

I really enjoyed walking through savannah with some one who knew so much about the city and it's history. It was so interesting to hear about the buildings and what they had meant to the city and why they were built. I would highly recommend the tour.

Jonathan is a thoughtful, well spoken tour guide with extensive knowledge of the architecture of Savannah. The tour was small, very well organized and very interesting. I left a message for Jonathan about the tour and he called back after just a few minutes. During the tour he gave many recommendations for restaurants and other places to see in town.... More

My wife and I took Jonathan's tour...wow, we came away impressed. His architectural expertise? Sure, brilliant. His knowledge of history and the town? Fantastic. But he went out of his way to recommend things to do, to inquire about how his guests spend their time in Savannah, how his guests are treated in town, where they stay, etc...he's a tremendous...
