My husband, daughter and I really enjoyed our tour with Dirk Hardison. I would highly recommend it. We learned a lot about the history and architecture of Savannah. We enjoyed every minute of it. My daughter loves history and she really enjoyed the tour. Dirk was a fun and knowledgeable guide.

Dirk Hardison is a congenial, knowledgeable guide. He generously exceeded the allotted 2-hour Architecture Ramble time with us, because we asked a lot of questions and showed our genuine interest in all that he was showing us. Dirk leads you on an easy walking tour sharing history and pointing out how architecture styles reflected the times and the builders. We... More

Highly recommend this tour. Dirk is quite knowledgeable and knows tons about the architectural history of the city. Don't expect any funny stories/made up history, Dirk sticks to the facts. Our two hour tour was closer to three, and we enjoyed every minute of it. I've done quite a few walking tours, and this is by far one of the... More

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time touring Savannah with Dirk--a great storyteller with a wealth of knowledge about the city, its history, and its architecture. It was an excellent introduction to the city on our first full day there, and we would highly recommend the experience to any visitors.

My husband and I took the 2 hour walking tour of Savannah. Dirk Hardison, of Savannah Rambles, was a bottomless well of information and history about Savannah. He helped us to appreciate the many changes in people and architecture that made the city the jewel that it is today. In those 2 hours, we strolled from one end of town... More

Excellent introduction to Savannah. Not just about architecture but lots of interesting details about social history too. All told in an engaging and listenable way. Really brought the city and its history to life.

If you have an interest in architecture and history, this is the tour to take. I found it extremely informative in giving real context behind the choices made in designing Savannah's layout and historic homes. I had been expecting a more typical historical walking tour and was delighted to get more understanding of the architectural aspects. Highly recommended.

I strongly believe that architecture is the physical legacy of our history and it is wonderful to have so much historic architecture available to tell Savannah's story! More

It is easy to fall in love with Savannah walking around on your own … however if you book a tour with Dirk on your first day – you will appreciate the city that much more. In the two and a half hours that we ‘Rambled’ we learned about the history, the architecture and plant life of this beautiful city.... More

We took Dirk's trip before we did the Old Savannah Trolley Tour and glad we did. It was fun to know more about many of the structures we passed than what we heard from the driver. We did the two hour tour and it was just the right length with a load of information and insights. Thanks Dirk!

I'm so glad you were able to appreciate the true magic of walking through a historic area over riding in a motorized conveyance. I hope you will continue to take walking tours on your travels and am privileged you gave me the opportunity to show you Savannah! More
