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.

He kept a pace that was manageable for me, a 74 year old, but wasted no time moving us around the area. The tour was 90... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Jonathan. He explained the history and architecture of Savannah very clearly. He organized the tour by timeline and presented lots of a details in a very interesting way. Jonathan was very personable, and we had a small sized group of 12 people on our tour. I highly recommend this tour. We learned so much!

Jonathan's knowledge of Savannah's architecture is unsurpassed. The tour provided a thorough review of the varied and eccentric structures occupying Savannah's compact historic district. Jonathan completes his... More

Jonathan is steeped in knowledge of both Savannah history and its architecture and has put together a thoughtful walk through time. My daughter (who's a 3rd year architecture student) and I were both engaged from start to finish and felt we gained a special knowledge of the city. My suggestion is to put this tour on the top of your... More

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.
