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.

If you do one tour in Savannah, do this one. You won't see every inch of the city, but you will learn so much from Jonathan that you'll be able to see the rest yourself with relative confidence. Jonathan is probably the nicest guy you...More

Well led tour, the knowledgeable leader is a graduate of architecture school in Savannah. Just a small sampling of Savannah but well worth it.
