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.

Don't let the title put you off - this is a must-do tour for anyone. Jonathon is uniquely qualified for this work as a graduate from SCAD in architecture. Do this tour as your first Savannah activity, since it will introduce you to other places you may want to visit. Jonathan is a wealth of knowledge - the more questions... More

Everything in Savannah is historic and magnificently built. Everywhere you look there is more and more to see. An architectural eye will love the unique structure of the buildings and area, but so will the untrained eye. It is a joy to the eyes and a pleasure to the heart. And then to here the stories of the beginning of... More

Jonathan's tour was outstanding. Although getting to know the history of Savannah and how it was founded was very cool, how he was able to weave in all of the major architectural styles in a few city blocks, and see 3 or 4 on the same square was very interesting. He has a gift and is truly using it. This... More

I am so happy that the Architectural Tours of Savannah were recently featured in the National Trust for Historic Preservation's magazine, or I might have missed this tour! A few weeks before traveling to Savannah, I emailed Jonathan to book the tour. He quickly responded telling me where and when to meet the tour group. His route, stories and points... More

Jonathan was fantastic. Knows his architecture and knows his Savannah history. Although you don't cover a lot of ground the 90 minutes is packed with information and insights. I'd probably do it again!

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Savannah's history and architecture. We took this tour our first morning in Savannah, and it gave an excellent historical and architectural overview. The tour takes about 90 minutes.

We live in Savannah and we really enjoyed this tour because it was very education. Tour guide provided a lot of interesting information. I think this is one of the most education tours you can have in Savannah and at the same time it is probably is least expensive.
