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.

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

Jonathan knows his Savannah building history. He provided a lot of information about architecture and history but it never felt like a lecture. It was an interactive tour and he always welcomed questions.

We began at 10:00 a.m. Refer to his website for the cost. It may change. We loved this tour. It was well worth the money.

Do you have a website? I find Trip Advisor to be very confusing - I can't find any details about your tours - when, where, cost, etc. Thanks for any help!
