Enjoyed Dawn's narrative of Bonaventure Cemetery, and the history of the graves and their residents. This was all intertwined into the history of Savannah. Also loved Dawn's rendition of several Johnny Mercer songs. Fantastic tour and terrific tour guide!!

Very informative and fun. Pace was good, so even though over 2 hours, did not feel rushed or wear out.

Dawn, (AKA the singing tour guide) a native to Savannah, did an incredible job blending stories, facts, & history. She was entertaining and a wealth of information on NC history, customs, & mannerisms.

Our tour guide, Dawn, was very knowledgeable, fun and engaging. She provided information not just about the cemetery but also about the history of broader Savannah. A definite must for locals or visitors!
