My husband and I very much enjoyed Dirk's tour in downtown Savannah. It was a great mix of history and architecture. Even though I grew up in Savannah, I certainly learned a lot. The tour doesn't cover a terribly large area, leaving room to delve...More

There is a tendency to look at a building and think that’s pretty, and then keep walking If you do that in Savannah, you are missing everything about the city that is worth knowing. Thankfully, we took this great walking tour about the architecture of...More

Dirk knows his stuff but the whole tour was only 5 or 6 blocks because we stopped and talked about all the nitty gritty - for example 10 minutes on the (beautiful) drain pipes - 2 minutes would have been plenty. Also, felt like he...More

Our family just returned from our first trip to Savannah and I know how other trip reports helped me...so hopefully I can also help someone. We only had two days because Monday...our third day we were touring SCAD for my daughter (the main reason for our visit). Saturday we arrived late morning....caught a quick lunch and headed to the riverfront area to walk around. We had a walking tour with Savannah Rambles at 3:00. Dirk was great--very informative and gave us a great introduction to the...More

Which walking tour should I take? (7 Replies)
I will be taking a riding tour of Savannah one the first day I am there with Old Savannah Tours of the HD and it says "other neighborhoods", I checked and they do not stop anywhere except to offer a break. I think that a walking tour would also offer a lot of opportunities to take pictures and ask questions. I am thinking that a walking tour on day two might be good as well. I have seen reviews for Savannah Rambles and Savannah Dan. Can anyone give any first hand information of either of...More

For me, without a doubt Dirk of Savannah Rambles. I take tours in every city I visit and he is by far the best guide I've ever had. One thing I like best about him is the lack of gimmicks. This man knows the city and IMO no one knows it better, but there's no seersucker, bowler hat, hoop skirt, etc. No costume but just a great guide. Years ago he worked for the historical/ preservation agency and he created the first preservation tour of the city as part of the big garden tour festival....More

Calling onemoreroad... (3 Replies)
Made it back and wanted to thank you for all the great tips...especially Dirk with Savannah Rambles. We loved our place on Tybee...on a tidal creek and marsh. Lots of birds...eagles, egrets, herons, kingfishers, and a family of raccoons for entertainment. Loved Mrs. Wilkes, Pink House, Vic's, and Sundae Cafe in Tybee. I mentioned you in a previous post below...."need your ideas." We want to go back for a visit already!
