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

I ended up being the only one on the tour that day, yet Dirk still took me around town and completely tailored the tour to my interests! He is extremely knowledgeable, and I was able to get answers to any questions I could think of. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. I HIGHLY recommend taking his tour!... More

My husband and I took a tour of Savannah with Dirk and I was so glad we did. When we arrived in town, the night before, and checked into our B&B, I was thinking, "Eh, an okay town". But when Dirk met us the next morning in one of the many, stunning, unique, old town squares that grace every cross... More

Dirk was quite interesting and seemed to know all the history and architecture. He gave us all the background we needed so we could enjoy Savannah all the more as we rambled later on our own. The tour was almost 2 and a half hours but it went quickly.

...consider a couple of hours with Dirk Hardison as he opens your mind to the intricacies, oddities and history of the Historical District in Savannah. Unlike some of the guides that get all dressed up and squire large groups of tourists, Dirk is an unassuming but extremely knowledgeable individual who conveys the history with an enthusiasm that is infectious.

Take this tour! Before anything else you do...you will not look at Savannah the same way. It's an easy walk at a slow pace with frequent stops to discuss architectural features of the houses and building around downtown Savannah. Dirk really knows his stuff and makes every little feature interesting. An architect himself with a speciality in historical restorations and... More

Dirk was a wealth of information about historic Savannah. And we were fortunate it was only us and one other couple. Lots of details about Savannah particularly about architectural designs/facets - but it's way more than just about buildings. Very enjoyable 2 hours.

If you want to learn the true history of this Southern gem, skip the canned trolley tours and ramble with a local who is passionate, extremely knowledgeable, an interesting storyteller, and full of fascinating bits of information that bring the history to life. My husband and I did the Architecture Ramble with Dirk. I'm a history buff and wondered whether... More

I was traveling with friends and saw Savannah Rambles before we arrived in town. From the reviews it sounded just right for us. Dirk took extra time with our group and was very knowledgable and interesting to listen to. We learned a lot about the history of the city and about the styles of architecture in downtown Savannah. Much better... More
