Once again, enough good can't be said about this tour and its leader. I was thrilled to be along for a recent second outing with Dirk in the city I've lived in since 1995. One can't be refreshed enough when this exquisite tour is administered. It was a beautiful day in Savannah, but most compelling was our leader's clearly abiding... More

My husband and I decided on an anniversary get-away to Savannah and Dirk sealed the deal that we made the right choice. We enjoy learning when we travel and our tour with Dirk is as good as it gets. He is an architect by profession and knows the wonders of Savannah inside and out. He helped us see and discover... More

My husband and I live in Savannah and learned so much on this tour. Now we have a true appreciation of buildings we pass by each day and can pick out the main architectural features and time period it was built. Dirk is truly an expert and was ready and willing to answer many of my questions and even extended... More

Dirk provides an excellent, very informed and intelligent tour. The tour was well paced and covered all the key architectual styles and areas of the historic district. Highly recommended.

Mr. Hardison gave us a wonderful tour of Savannah, weaving its architectural wonders with the history, culture and present-day make-up of the city. The walk ranged over a wide swath of the historic district and provided ample opportunity to linger over sites, ask questions and engage in dialogue with this knowledgeable tour guide. This was our first trip to Savannah... More

We were looking forward to this tour, but this was really something special! Savannah is beautiful by itself, but add the history and architectural evolution and it truly comes alive. We toured & talked with Dirk for over 2 1/2 hours (it seemed like just 1/2 an hour) as we strolled through the many squares, streets and time. Dirk is... More

Dirk was excellent, we learnt so much. Savannah is a beautiful city by any standards and Dirk made it come alive. My husband is a surveyor so he isn't easily impressed but he was fascinated. I love the stories that the buildings tell you and I'm so pleased we booked this tour. I could not recommend this tour highly enough.... More

Very informative and fun walking tour. Dirk is a wealth of knowledge regarding Savannah's history and architecture. There was not a question he could not answer and answer well. We also appreciated how flexible he was regarding how much time he spent at each stop along the way based on the interest of our small group. Couldn't help but think... More

We visited Savannah last week and booked a 2 hour tour with Dirk Hardison of Savannah Rambles. Dirk told us about the history of the city, while showing and explaining the evolution of the architecture, all in a very interesting and lively manner. There was not a question he couldn't answer, and the tour was at a perfect pace. Dirk... More

This is the best way to learn about Savannah! Dirk spent 5 hours with us, telling the stories to go along with the architectural wonders of the city. The tour started on the Riverfront with talks of King Cotton and the industry of that time period. Dirk took us through the historic district to areas that are not included on... More
