This was a fun experience and the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the local history and lore. He even threw in some insights and theories about the mythology and symbolism pertaining to the cemetery and Savannah. Highly recommended!

Very knowledgeable of Savanah history. Best tour that we took while visiting. Recommend if interested in cemeteries and the stories of the people buried in the Bonaventure cemetery.

family loved it - artwork is amazing and history is abound. Take a tour with a guide then go back with the car and drive around.
