Overview

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 was a fabulous walking tour! My husband's an architect, I'm not. Yet we BOTH thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Jonathon is extremely knowledgeable + well versed in Savannah's history + architecture. Like others, I would recommend taking this tour early in your visit.

Tours offered through Architectural Savannah provide an acquaintance with the city in the only fashion a dense historic district can be properly explored, on foot.

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.
