Oscar Wilde called it, "Incomparable." John Berendt gave it to the world in the pages "Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil." Through 250 years, few cemeteries have touched the hearts & minds of artists and people, as has Bonaventure. Tales that await are Johnny Mercer, Little Gracie, Conrad Aiken, Harry Hervey, and so many others famous & just "every day," that you'll be dizzy with details & images that will keep you coming back for a lifetime! Walking Tours Daily at 10 am & 2pm - Reservations Required! Order over the phone or online.

We took the 10 am tour with Shannon and were very happy with the experience. I was very interested in seeing the Bonaventure Cemetery, especially after reading Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and the tour fulfilled all my expectations. My boyfriend, who didn't know much about what we were doing, but indulges my love of cemeteries, thought... More

Do not do this cemetery on your own! Take the tour. The stories of those laid to rest there are incredible. Our guide was awesome and informative. And you will learn a lot about Savannah's history. A must do. Just remember to bring bug spray as the gnats were a bit tough.

Did the tour of Bonaventure Cemetary and it was excellent. Our tour guide provided us with excellent information about a number of the grave sites and the stories behind them. The cemetary is beautiful and lined with live oak trees. One recommendation is to take bug spray. Really enjoyable.

My sisters and I greatly enjoyed the tour we had with Alyssa. We were fortunate enough to be the only ones on the tour that morning and learned so much about Bonaventure . The weather was beautiful but I do recommend bug spray which Alyssa was kind enough to share with us.

What a memorable experience, the Bonaventure Cemetery Tour with Shannon Scott. He is a walking time machine who makes the stone headstones and statuary come alive with history and sordid details of the past of those memorialized within the gates of this cemetery. Don't go it alone...take along a well versed, friendly and man of many artistic persuasions with you.... More

We took the cemetery tour today and the family had mixed reviews. I loved it. The rest of the family tolerated it. To be fair, you could probably do the entire tour in an hour, instead of two if you picked up the pace just a tad. But it was a great tour and WAY better than just wandering around... More
