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

We met another couple whose "free" guide was a no-show at Johnson Square and invited them to join our tour with Dirk. Despite the steady downpour for the two hour duration, Dirk kept us entertained with little known stories from time gone by and his thorough knowledge of history and architecture. He even knew when to suggest a "pit stop"... More

Just last week we took a 5 hour private tour with dirk. It was probably one of the best if not the best architecture and history walking tour we have taken and we do atleast 8 or 10 such tours every year. Dirk's background as an architect who has been a part of savannah's historical preservation society meant that we... More

We toured Savannah with Dirk in October and it was the best choice ever. His knowledge of the city, its architecture and its history if awesome. He answered everyone's questions thoughtfully and carefully, and gave us all kinds of background. The rest of our stay in Savannah was made so much more fun because we knew what we were seeing....

We spent the morning of our first day in Savannah walking the city with Dirk. For the next two days, everything that we saw while strolling around the city was influenced by what we heard and viewed that first morning. Really, I can offer no higher compliment. This isn't just about architecture--it's also history and local color, all rolled together.... More
