This walking tour is guided by a trained architect. Dirk offers insights into the historical buildings and their background that are rooted in research. As a great plus for us, Dirk involves himself in historical associations of the community. In other words, he cares about the community. We respect that and hope that other visitors will as well.

Our guide, Dirk Hardison, was a fount of information, not just about the many buildings we saw, but also about the history of Savannah from its beginning. His knowledge of the various architectural styles, innovations, and the people who lived in the houses was impressive. Would happily do it again. And his recommendation for lunch was right on!

Best of the city! Informative and entertaining. Dirk was able to answer all of our questions easily. I felt a bit guilty for running our tour over with all of the questions we had. 2 hours well spent! I would book this tour again in a heartbeat. History and architecture taught by someone who is knowledgable about them both. He... More

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. Dan knows Savannah, and She is fortunate to have such a... More

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
