Dirk is extremely knowledgeable and very passionate about Savannah, and it shows in his tour. We have visited Savannah many times the past four years. I learned more from Dirk on this tour than any other. Much more than architecture, and all very well done.

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.
