About Bonaventure Don
My name is Don Teuton, and mine is the best tour of historic Bonaventure Cemetery. My parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents are buried in these hallowed grounds and I will be as well. I am Vice Chairman of the Bonaventure Historical Society and an active volunteer for the same. For me, and mine, Bonaventure is a family tradition. If you’re looking for ghost stories or secret societies or other fanciful things, this is not the tour for you. There are other Bonaventure Cemetery tours you may choose if you prefer fiction. I believe that what actually occurred on these grounds, and in this city, is fascinating enough without the need to make things up. My tour is the only historically accurate walking tour of Bonaventure cemetery. Please join me, if you can. We'll have fun, I promise.

Passion, expertise, and fun come together in one package -- in Bonaventure Don. It was obvious from the first contact that this guide would be outstanding. Shortly after I booked the tour, he replied to me by email with important details and instructions about the meeting place. Subsequently, he emailed the night before the tour to confirm, and I received a text from him the day of the tour. I couldn't ask for better communication. Once we arrived, Don took us on a an adventure through Savannah's history, told through the residents interred in beautiful Bonaventure Cemetery. These tours are obviously a labor of love for Don. His family is buried in this place, and one day, he will be too. I learned so much, and in such an interesting way that I was able to recount much of the history and the stories days afterwards. So clearly, his tour is memorable.

My three siblings and I toured the Bonaventure Cemetery with Don. He was knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor, and wove historical context into his tour. He also acknowledged the diversity in age in his audience and adjusted his information accordingly. He provided the four of us a great recommendation for lunch in Savannah, we followed his advice, and were well rewarded. The pace of the tour was wonderful; we were just sorry we couldn't spend more time in the cemetery with Don - it was SO interesting. One of the main highlights in our visit to Savannah. Thanks Don!

This was a fantastic history tour. Don is incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about the cemetery as well as the history of Savannah. It is a real history tour and he even provides sources for the information he gives on the tour. If you are looking for a creepy ghost tour of the cemetery this is not the tour for you but if you want to learn about the history of Savannah and the people who lived there then this is a fantastic tour.

We were visiting the area for a few days and found this outdoor tour on TripAdvisor. We have never been to Savannah and thought that this would be in interesting way to learn the history of the city. And it is an outdoor activity in the time of Covid. We contacted Bonaventure Don via text & email. We were excited that he was going to begin tours again after shutting down for five months during the height of the Covid pandemic in his city. We signed up for a 2:30 pm tour... he let us know where to meet and informed us how to get there and where parking was available. It was a small group of 4 tourists and Don. Don's regaled us with stories of the founding of Savannah and the various families buried here for 2 1/2 hours and we were NEVER bored. Bonaventure Don is a great story-teller! And the beauty of this cemetery and the statuary here is amazing. We would highly recommend this as a starting point for exploring the city! Also recommend that you add a couple of $$ extra for the Bonaventure Historical Society that maintains this cemetery. Enjoy!!

Don is an absolute expert on Bonaventure and his tour is chock full of info. He's low-key but and easy to hear (good volume). Keeps things moving at a comfortable pace. We loved the tour and think others will too.
