I have gone on several walking tours all over the U.S., and this was by far the best I've experienced. My boyfriend and I take turns picking the walking tours when we travel, and this tour turned out to be a perfect blend of history and architecture-- a definite plus, because while I love architecture, my boyfriend is much more interested in the history. Dirk's tour included information on early Savannah history, city planning, significant Savannah individuals, and how local architecture changed to reflect advances in building techniques. Dirk's tour was full of stories describing how both the wealthy and poor city inhabitants lived, and the problems they faced. We had a multitude of questions, and Dirk was happy to take the time to answer all of them. The pace of the walk was perfect -- it really was an enjoyable ramble, but be sure to wear your best walking shoes because the sidewalks are quite uneven. Dirk was also happy to suggest local restaurants and museums off the beaten path (The Ships of the Sea Museum is an absolute gem for anyone interested in nautical history). I have already recommended Savannah Rambles to my parents, who will be in Savannah in late spring. Dirk's enthusiasm for Savannah is genuine -- his tour was the highlight of our trip.
