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.

This is an excellent, fun, intelligent, and, most importantly, fact-based, tour of Savannah. Jonathan gives you the tools to be able to continue to decipher the city's history long after the tour is over. Well worth the time.

My girlfriend and I were in Savannah for the week prior to New Years, and based on the reviews, decided this tour was the one to take. We were not disappointed. Jonathan does an excellent job explaining the history of Savannah in terms of architectural period, which is not only entertaining, but incredibly educational. We saw the rest of our... More

Especially good for lovers of beautiful homes and buildings (which is the best thing about Savannah,) and you can walk around on your own after the tour with a better understanding... More

Jonathan, the tour guide is very entertaining and witty. His way of taking you through Savannah's architectural evolution keeps you engaged during the entire tour. The tour helps you understand not only about the types of architecture that have exited in Savannah, but also the influence of history in the architectural choices of the city.

Exactly what we were hoping for. Super educational, including the towns history, people and mostly the fantastic architecture. I would highly recommend anyone join this tour. We saw some other tours walking about and I was always glad we chose to see the city with Jonathan. Thanks!

Jonathan has the training of an architect, the patience of a dedicated teacher and the charming personality that ties it all together. I was traveling with my parents and two friends (one who lives in Savannah) and we all thoroughly enjoyed his well organized tour. I learned so much and know I'll also be able to apply it to future... More

I joined the tour together with my dad. Jonathan gave a thoroughly enjoyable, well rounded, insight into Savannah's architectural history. While the walk covered only a limited geographical area, it provided all the basic tools in better understanding the city's sites which we got to see afterwards on our own walks.
