Cemetery Tour is a Must Do!
Deeanna_J

The tour was really informative, I can't remember my tour guides name, but she was very informative. I went on Tuesday June 7th @ 11 am, our group was small but I learned alot. This was my first trip to Savannah. I loved every min of it, touring a cemetery is a must do! One tip, BRING YOUR BUG SPRAY & AN UMBRELLA, the bugs are very vicious & carnivorous, & umbrella just in case of rain.

Our tour guide Nicole was great! It was actually just her, my boyfriend, and I on the tour and she was very friendly and welcoming. It was like taking the tour with a friend. She was very knowledgeable and I really appreciate the fact she went over minor details that amplified the history and storylines.

Important Part of Savannah's History

Our guide Nick was very knowledgeable and explained the history of the Victorian era Bonaventure Cemetary and the family plots the wealthy families would buy. He had entertaining stories about many of the families, and the tour time passed way too quickly. Don't miss this tour.

Indeed a Bon Adventure

Joanna was our guide through a gorgeous venue. While my youngest (8) wasn’t entranced he did like it. My other two (12,14)loved it and both (parents agree) said that Joanna made the whole place come alive. Clearly Joanna has a curious mind and loves sharing what she has gleaned. The cemetery is gorgeous. An art history, gardening, graphic design lovers dream. A must stop for a Savannah visit. Tour was 100% worth it understand the stories behind the beauty.

Killing Time Before My Flight
Rose_J
, Jan 2022
I decided on this tour at the very last minute. 3 days and 2 of those days were, gloomy, gray, cloudy and cold. So on my last day, the sun decided to come out and o had some time to kill so I booked this tour. I got to the location and thought I was in the wrong place as there were no signs visible for yours. You got some directions with your confirmation email, but they weren’t quite clear. So after a few minuets I thought I was in the wrong area. I finally found my guide Nick, who was the most pleasant and friendly person of the morning. It looked like it was just me u til a family of 6 showed up. 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 I was happy that we could now begin our tour. I never thought of doing this but while on the tour I found it to be very relaxing, interesting and heavily informative with a lil bit of fun depending on your guide 😊 thank you Nick for a very wonderful and cool 2 hrs. It was well spent, especially with the dead! 😁😁

Terrible trip

The most memorable part is that we missed the tour. The reason is nobody at the cemetery seem to know where we were supposed to meet. So I drove all the way back to town, and they had no idea what we were talking about.

Our tour guide was very friendly and had a lot of knowledge about Savana but it wasn’t really focused on stories of the cemetery or the graves. Overall it wasn’t really worth the price.

Beautiful Cemetery

Bonaventure is a gorgeous cemetery with lots of history. The weather was beautiful with a breeze coming in off the river. Our tour guide packed about 4 hours of information into our 1 1/2 hour tour, it was too much too fast. He was very nice.
