Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the local homes, museums and architecture. It was a pleasure to hear interesting stories about each building showcased as well as explanations for building choices of the times. Our guide had many humorous stories as well. The tour ran longer than anticipated, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. He also offered lunch suggestions afterwards... More

Dirk accepted our reservation the night before even though it would only be my husband and myself. He was very informative and patient with all our questions. He not only included information about architecture and history about also included great places to see and eat to round out our trip. He fulfilled the two hour tour and left us wanting... More

We booked this tour while we were in Savannah for the weekend…first time in the area. Unfortunately it was the weekend of the Rock n Roll Marathon (you might want to avoid that weekend in Nov.), so the town was mobbed for the event. But it turned out to be a blessing for us because our tour group consisted of... More

Dirk, the tour guide was the best. He was so knowledgeable about Savannah and gracious about answering questions. He led us through the streets of Savannah, talking the entire time about the history, the architecture, and the people. The tour showed us many of the historic highlights of Savannah. I would definitely recommend Savannah Rambles to anyone visiting or new... More

I had a friend in town from Arizona, so we decided to take a day trip to Savannah from Jacksonville as she had never visited the city. I had been two times before, but didn't really think it was anything special. I was determined to make her trip fun, so I hopped on Trip Advisor, read some reviews, and decided... More

We booked this architectural walking tour of Savannah's historic district on Christmas Day, when most other attractions were closed. Dirk Hardison is a long time resident and architect who is very knowledgable on the subject and packs a lot of interesting information into two hours. The tour included highlights of Savannah's history together with detailed background on the most notable... More

This was an excellent way to start our trip to Savannah! We were so glad we opted for the walking tour versus the many trolleys we saw flying through each stop... we wondered if they could even be getting any useful info! Dirk gave us such wonderful, accurate information we felt we had a great foundation for our trip. I... More

We had a great time with Dirk on our 2.5 hour walking tour of Savannah! We learned a lot of history (and had many things that our Carriage tour guide told us corrected....basically the only thing they got right was that Oglethorpe founded the colony). He was happy to answer all our questions, and gave us a very informative and... More

Let me just go on record as saying I am not an 'organized tour' type of guy. Never have been, probably never will be.... But... Took a stab in the dark and booked a 2 hour walking tour with Savannah Rambles. What a fantastic time! Not enough can be said about Dirk our tour guide. His local knowledge about not... More

If you are interested in the architecture and history of the lovely old houses in the historic district Dirk is your man. An excellent walking tour and impressive given that there was just the two of us. Dirk has a wide knowledge of the area and as an architect he is clearly passionate about the beauty and preservation of the... More
