“Tour was very informative and factual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

I would definately recommend the early tour due to the heat but it was well worth it. The tour guide was great. He was not into the theatrics and was giving us facts and true stories. Would love to go back and do the tour again next year when the flowers are blooming.

“Great Place But a Couple Warnings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

This is a beautiful, beautiful place. I highly recommend a tour; just not sure if it's this one. The information around the tour said it was 1.5 hours. It was not; it was 2:15 minimum. Important when it's 95-degrees out or if you have other plans. It also there were places to sit; there was not according to the tour guide. He would not allow us to sit "on his tour". This is important for physically challenged. Shannon was VERY informative, but a bit insensitive since my wife was sporting a cane.

The tour is so informative and interesting, and Jennifer was an excellent guide. Make sure to bring bug spray and wear closed toe shoes if you can!

“awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

one of the biggest cemetery I ever seen. we took a tour the first day of our week vacation through six sense tours. we thought it was a haunting tour but it was a history tour. It was a great tour that taught us about the history of savannah. what a awesome place.
