A wonderfully intelligent leader, who limits his tourists/students (perpetual students perhaps, like my wife and me, 70+) to only 12, he is the intellectual "owner" of a vast library of information about the architecture and the City itself - all of his talk related in a consistently engaging way.

A leisurely two-hour walk through the historic and Victorian districts with a guide who has worked in the historic preservation business. There is a lot of information to be absorbed. Best for people with a serious interest in the area - not those looking for gossipy history and ghost stories. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great tour and introduction to the architecture of the city and how it has shaped and been shaped by the history of Savannah. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and fielded any question thrown his way. I enjoyed it very much and learned a great deal about this beautiful city!

My friend and I decided to sign up for a walking tour of Savannah's historic district to get a better understanding of the history of the city, as well as learn more about the amazing buildings throughout the city. Dirk and Savannah Rambles hit the spot! The tour took a little over 2 hours - a good, leisurely pace -... More

Dirk was super nice and knowledgeable. Focus on history and architecture which was just what we wanted. Dirk definitely has a point of view but we really liked that. Smart, unpretentious and knowledgeable. A great tour. Went over time but we enjoyed all of it.

Great walking tour, informative and interesting, I'd highly recommend taking it. Dirk has a wealth of knowledge about Savannah and the surrounding area. We had a small group (4 people) so lots of opportunity to ask questions etc. I only wish we'd taken the tour on our first day in Savannah as it would've made our subsequent walks around this...

We had a great leisurely walking tour with Dirk who was recommended to us by the woman who owns the B & B that we stayed in. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Having been involved in the preservation movement in Savannah, he pointed out "building ghosts" on several places. Faded signs of long gone days!... More

We started our first full day in Savannah with a private tour by Dirk and overall thought it was a fantastic tour. He is very knowledgeable and was very patient with my many questions as well! We walked away with a good understanding both of the architectural history of the city as well as just a good overview of the... More

So great and refreshing to do a tour with someone not only passionate but credible and extremely knowledgeable about Savannah and it's architectural history and heritage. Dirk really had a great way of explaining everything which brought it all alive for us. It was great to really learn and absorb all that Dirk told us, his delivery was great. This... More

Dirk offers the best in touring Savannah. He is an expert on its architecture and has great knowledge of American history. He also has a good sense of humour which he demonstrates through funny anectodes. There were four of us on the tour and he adjusted easily to our pace, personal interventions, and shared stories. He was also generous with... More
