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 thoroughly enjoyed Jonathan's walking tour, which highlighted the architectural history of Savannah. He is extremely knowledgeable about local history and how the many styles of architecture reflected it.

Covered an amazing amount of history in a short time. Really puts the city in context, and explains the trends in architecture over time. Do this!

This is a must while in Savannah. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and an expert in his field. It is not a lot of walking, and the pace is slow. Highly recommend it.

The tour covered basic history of some of the squares and the layout of the city. However, if you have more detailed questions about the city, squares or a specific home, he will absolutely be able to answer your questions.

Jonathan could answer the question about a trolley. Personally, I don't see that a trolley would work. I'm sure a electric scooter would be perfect, but I'm not sure where they could be rented. I wonder if Jonathan would... More
