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.

We took Jonathan's tour and found it to be a perfect introduction to the city. In under two hours we did a neat little walk around the historic district, as he explained the history of the city through its architecture. It was a perfect length, with a perfect amount of information. Jonathan was highly knowledgeable, and also gave some great restaurant recommendations.

To echo other reviews, Jonathan's fun and informative architectural tour makes the visit to Savannah more meaningful. Jonathan is a trained architect and has a wonderful engaging presence when leading the tour. We don't usually take tours, but this was worthwhile.

I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Savannah. You can really learn to appreciate the beautiful city even more when you know why the buildings were built the way they are.

We took the Architectural Tour for the 2nd time, to introduce our daughters to the incredible beauty of Savannah. The tour content was different enough from 2 years ago to be fresh and engaging. Jonathan is passionate and well-versed in 300 years of American architectural development. I heartily recommend this tour to all who want more than the usual tourist recap.
