You are invited to walk with me as I use Savannah's architectural history as a visual aid to tell the history of Savannah's innovative city plan, icredible mix of architectural styles, and generations of diverse people who have created America's most uniquely beautiful city. I have been personally involved with the restoration of numerous buildings within Savannah's historic districts and can offer a unique perspective among tour guides.

Part history lesson, part lovely walk, and lots of interesting architecture and facts; we loved the 2 hours we spent with Dirk Hardison on a Sunday. We started at 9:30 and it was very hot, but Dirk kept us in as much shade as possible and walked at an easy pace. He came equipped with maps and started the tour... More

The architecture and history in Savannah rivals my hometown of Boston!! Dirk's love of his home town and incredible wealth of information ensured a great time despite the interruption of the typical thunderstorm and downpour! Learned a lot about the initial layout of the historic district with the Oglethorpe plan, the incredibly varied architectural styles and lots of little known... More

Dirk guided us - a family of five - through historic Savannah. It was great! Dirk is very knowledgeable, and Savannah is THE place for walking tours. Dirk will show you around town, and give you detailed information on the architecture of the buildings, the history of Georgia and Savannah, and other secrets about the district. We enjoyed the tour... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my morning walking tour with Dirk. He showed me so many cool things, and I learned so much about Savannah's history, architecture and little known facts - did you know that Savannah snubbed prohibition, and had gas stations where one of the pumps was gin? Dirk will tell all!

I have been on tours of many cities by trolley, bus, Segue, bicycle and foot. Savannah is perfectly made for this walking tour, and two hours is the right length to get your feet wet without your eyes glazing over.

Dirk Hardison conducts an excellent walking tour of Savannah, patiently pointing out the highlights, explaining the history, and giving tour members an overview of architectural features of this wonderful city. He is patient, well-versed, and very knowledgeable, and his tour makes you feel closer to the city and its structures.

I was so glad we took this tour! In addition to getting a good feel for Savannah, the history was fascinating and Dirk was able to help us really know Savannah by the end of our tour. He was very knowledgeable and I found myself making notes of things to go back and research and read about in more depth.... More

This was one of the best walking tours we have ever taken, and we have been on them around the world. Dirk Hardison, the guide, knows his city and knows his architecture. He is extremely informed and interesting to listen to as he explains the backgrounds on various sections of this beautiful city and the history of the important buildings.... More

This was our first visit to Savannah and we couldn't have picked a better way to start it off than with Dirk. This tour covered Savannah city history and architecture. Being a degreed and experienced architect, Dirk did an excellent job of explaining both. He came well prepared including old building photo's to show the previous condition prior to restoration...
