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 very knowledgeable about the city, and blends professionalism with humor beautifully. Jonathan gave a timeline of the architectural and historical changes in Savannah, and even added references to architects and buildings from... More

Fabulous! This is hands down, my favorite tour in Savannah! Jonathan is very knowledgeable, and patient. Even if architecture isn't your thing, this tour is incredibly interesting. You will see Savannah in an entirely different way!

Johnathan was an amazing ambassador for Savannah! We read all the TA reviews and scheduled ourselves so that our first hour and a half in Savannah was on his tour. I would highly recommend that as it was the PERFECT overview of so much more of the city than just the architecture. He did a fabulous job explaining the history... More

Jonathan does an amazing job of highlighting the architecture of Savannah in terms that appeal to both novices and experts. He is engaging and enthusiastic. No ghost stories, no gossip, just a good, solid historical tour. We enjoyed it enormously.

Jonathan is such a great guide. He knows so much not just about the Savannah architecture but also the architecture around the world. The tour was very informative and 90 minutes just flew by. Jonathan makes the tour not only educational but also fun by giving us insights and cracking jokes. The tour is suitable for one and all, including... More

If you only want do one tour while in Savannah make it this one. Jonathan is fantastic, not only on the history of architecture in Savannah, but ask him any question about the history of Savannah or even the current real estate market, and you will get an expert opinion. This tour is packed with insightful information that will leave... More

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.
