Our tour guide, Mr. Scott, was awesome!!!! Had we went without him we would have not known any of the stories and background of all the tombs and people buried there. It was 2 hrs of amazing information and I could have stayed longer. Beautiful Cemetary with so much history and shocking surprises. Great tour and tour guide!!!!

Our tour of the Bonaventure Cemetery was wonderful. Our tour guide did an excellent job and had many interesting stories that made it come to life. It was the perfect time of year for the tour because the cemetery was absolutely beautiful with all of the blooming azaleas and flowering trees. I would highly recommend this tour on your trip to Savannah!

We really enjoyed Bonaventure. Suzannah’s passion for research and the Victorian era energized the tour. The symbolism behind the design of tombstones and statuary was fascinating. Thanks so much!
Really, a Cemetery Tour? From Creepy to Glorious

I booked this tour before our family visit to Savannah. My wife and son were skeptical about walking around a cemetery... but that changed quickly. The tour was awesome and Shannon was a great host, full of knowledge, great story telling and passion about Bonaventure. I'm sure it is beautiful all times of year, but late March/early April was special with flowers everywhere, a sight to behold. Shannon also provided us additional information about nearby places to eat and recommended a trip to Wormsloe, which we did the next day. A special tour and tour guide that we will always remember!

100% worth it. It is quite that simple. If you are looking for a tour to go on I would recommend this to anyone! Shannon was so knowledgeable, funny, and kind. The tour itself was accompanied by a plethora of pictures and history that we would have never gotten without this tour. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who is remotely interested, or just looking for a fantastic tour!
