Owner description: 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.

My husband and I love to travel and we always do a walking tour when we visit new cities. Jonathan was an excellent tour guide! Very knowledgable and charming and we very much enjoyed our two hour walking tour around Savannah. Jonathan answered every question, was very patient, full of energy, and provided us with great information and kept us in the shade. We very much enjoyed our tour and would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Savannah! Thanks Jonathan!

If you are interested in history and curious about how architecture reflects it, you will find this tour very enjoyable. Jonathan obviously loves the subject matter, and seemed to make it fun and informative for everyone in the group. Fair amount of walking but nothing strenuous, although we were on our feet for the whole tour. This is something I would do every time I vacation in Savannah.

Jonathan was interesting and engaging. We walked about 10-15 blocks over 90 minutes. Fabulous for architecture buffs as well as those interested in learning the history of Savannah.

We learned so much from Jon while strolling throughout historic Savannah. We walked for 2 hours and saw Savannah through the eyes of an experienced architect. Just call a day or two ahead to reserve your spot. Our group of 15 was just the right size to ask questions and interact as we walked along. The streets and squares are shady so we did not over heat. Walking is the best way to discover Savannah.

This walking tour was so interesting. Jonathan has a great way of knowing everything without being a 'know-it-all'. His style is so easy going and informative. I couldn't believe we were on it for almost 2 hours. It felt like 30 minutes. Time flies when you're having fun I guess. As everyone else has said, this is well worth your time and money.
