You don't have to be an architect to enjoy the Architectural Tours of Savannah with Jonathan Stalcup. He is author and holds a Master of Architecture degree from SCAD. Jonathan not only knows his stuff design-wise, he makes it really easy for the average tourist to understand how Savannah was born and grew into the beautiful and beautifully singular city it is. He not only stops and points, he brings along visual aids to help you understand how a particular building or square evolved. You won't be bored or even tired- the tour progresses (and walks) through hundreds of years of history at leisurely pace.

Wonderful tour by Jonathan who is obviously very knowledgeable of the architecture and Savannah history. I know nothing about architecture but enjoyed every minute. Everyone should put this on your to do list.

Jonathan was an excellent tour guide - fun, funny, and super knowledgeable! We learned so much about architecture and just the history of the city. It was definitely a highlight of the trip - we even bought his book!

Jonathan is TERRIFIC! I have just returned from a mother daughter weekend get away to Savannah, with the highlight of an amazing weekend being the walking tour with Jonathan. First please let me preface by setting the scene. It was the hottest (and I do mean the hottest) week that Savannah has experienced in years. And being from the South,... More

It is hard to have anything to add to the glowing reviews about Jonathan. They are all true and then some. He is highly knowledgeable and passionate about the city of Savannah and architecture and his enthusiasm for both make the tour pass too quickly.

Jonathan was a wonderful guide!!! (Yes, that's three explanation marks) I was hesitant, because I prefer history tours, but he was highly recommended on TripAdvisor, so I took the leap...And he exceeded my expectations. Great mix of history and architecture. My family and I have been on countless tours, and Jonathan is in the top five, I highly recommend. Disclaimer:... More

Jonathan is a great tour guide. His background in architecture makes his tour extra special. He's insanely knowledgeable and expertly weaves the history of Savannah in with the beautiful backdrop of all the buildings and squares. I highly recommend this tour!

Jonathan does a great job of weaving architecture into history--or is it history into architecture? This is an easy and enjoyable walk along Savannah's squares observing details of the buildings, their differences, materials used and biographical information. Jonathan obviously loves sharing his expertise and city-delight with the layman. The time passed quickly.
