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.

After going on this tour I look at Savannah through completely different eyes now! Jonathan was the perfect guide for this. His degree at SCAD I'm sure helped him, along with living there. He took us through several blocks describing along the way the various periods and showing/explaining how the architecture changed along the way. At one square he was able to show us three different periods!

Hearing the difference between the local brick, versus the imported brick, and seeing them makes you really stop and pay attention to all sorts of details you wouldn't have thought of yourself.

He showed us everything in a way that made learning fun and interesting, never boring. You could probably even bring a sullen teenager along for a great lesson that they would never know they wanted!

There was a pep in everyone's step that morning and we all thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

Thanks Jonathan!

We had a wonderful time on our tour with Jonathan. The amount of knowledge he has about Savannah architecture and history knows no bounds. He is obviously passionate about his work and it shows. We really enjoyed ourselves. We had some history buffs on our tour and he was able to answer all their questions and then some. Great sense of humor too. And to top it all off he gave us a great lunch recommendation. We would definitely recommend his tour to anyone considering a walking tour of Savannah.

I loved this tour! Jonathan was very knowledgeable and we learned so much about the architecture of savannah. Jonathan talks about history and then ties it back to the periods architecture. This tour doesn't go deep into the history of savannah or the squares. If that is what you are looking for, I would recommend a diffrent tour. My husband, who is not an architecture geek, enjoyed the tour as well and found it interesting. Highly recommended!
