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.

Jonathan is wonderful! You never feel like he is bored and on automatic when describing the history and how it has affected the architecture of Savannah. The previous reviews certainly do him justice. Truly enjoyed his tour, very reasonable priced, and wished he did full city tours of Savannah.

Jonathan's tour is a superb way to orient a newcomer to the figurative "bones" of the city. He provides you with a framework to understand the buildings and layered history of Savannah. What a joy. Thank you Jonathan.

We had the best tour with Jonathan!! We were in Savannah right after the New Years rush, so we luckily had him all to ourselves. We learned a lot about the architecture that makes up Savannah and now look at the city through new eyes. Even our dog enjoyed it! Thanks Jonathan, and I would DEFINITELY book this tour when...

Absolutely book this tour if you want: (1) a local's take on what makes Savannah special (2) eye-popping views of the city's prettiest homes, and (3) a sweet, smart guide who throws in a little salty commentary along the way. Jonathan recommended restaurants and nighttime destinations in between texting us up-to-the-minute advice. Like having an instant friend with an amazing... More

This tour was absolutely FANTASTIC. We had a group of eleven that ranged in age from 22 - 85 years old. Half the group were born and raised in Savannah and the other half were from Memphis, TN and Munich, Germany. Jonathan is EXTREMELY knowledgeable about the architecture of Savannah (and the discipline in general) but he is also well... More

Jonathan Stalcup's lighthearted, friendly manner and clear love of architecture and design made this tour fun! The time flew by as we moved at a steady pace through Savannah's Historic District, stopping to take in the amazing architecture, learning about the architects and their stories. Jonathan was entertaining and presented the history of the building of Savannah in a clear,... More

Excellent!! Perfect tour. Guide was extremely informative but presented material in an easily understood format. Four friends wanting to understand the importance of building details. Jonathan was able to present the chronological details of the history through buildings. Highly recommend!!!
