Great "Midnight" Tour

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable. She showed us EVERYTHING related to both the book and the movie. We had a great experience.

I wanted this Bonaventure tour in the bus because my daughter cant handle heat. She was 10 minutes late picking us up at the bus stop. She drove us around the cemetery and told us some things, but not near enough what I was expecting for the 90$ I paid for the tour. Secondly the bus' air conditioner was awful.... More

This is THE best tour ever and we have been on several! We went on our 1st tour with Angela in Nov 2015 and loved it so much that we just had to go on a different one with her! She is such a kind,knowledgeable and down to earth guide!! She is a native of Savannah and even shows you... More

We must have caught Angela on a bad day, too. She was very negative about the college students, any cars in her way, etc. The van was very hot even though they advertise that it is air conditioned and comfortable. Her driving was sporadic and fast. Once we finally arrived at the cemetery, she was not accommodating to what we... More

My wife is a huge fan of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. We went to Bonaventure Cemetery to check out the sites and were overwhelmed by the size of the place - 100 acres! After wandering around "lost" for a bit I decided to find a guide. I went to TripAdvisor to see what I could see.... More

The tour was longer than expected-about 3 hour total. The owner/driver was very knowledgable, friendly and helpful. The van was not that cool, but better than walking the streets. A nice time and a good way to see the sights.

Savannah Heritage Tours' advantage over the other tour companies can also be a little assuming. The tour guide/owner operator is Angela, a home grown, many generation product of Savannah who even shows you where she lives in the historic district. She operates her air conditioned bus and has the highest degree of familiarity with the area and the people. However,... More

Angela did a great job pointing out Savannah's history and sights. She is friendly and informative. Great way to spend 3 hours touring Savannah. Highly recommended.

My wife liked the novel and movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, so she wanted to take a tour that provides background on the story. The Grand Book Tour conducted by Savannah Heritage Tours includes a tour of the Mercer-Williams House, many of the properties that Jim Williams restored and that are featured in the book, and...

We took the Bonaventure Cemetery Tour, and it was outstanding. Angela was an amazing guide. She really knows the city well, and gave us an endless amount of information. We were able to walk around the cemetery quite a bit and take a number of pictures. At the end of tour, Angela even offered to drop off anywhere you needed,... More
