About Architectural Tours of Savannah
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.

This tour was all we could have asked for and better than we expected. Jonathan knew the answers to all questions, was engaging, and an overall great host. We will definitely book again if we ever go back to Savannah.

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
