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.

From the moment we signed up for this tour, I knew it would be amazing. Don sends out emails prior to the event letting you know what to expect, what to wear (cause it can be really hot & humid in the summer), how long you'll be there and more details. And the fact it's a "pay what you feel it's worth" tour is amazing. Don's knowledge of not only the cemetery and its "residents", but how those lifeless names tie into the history of Savannah is amazing. He has a way of telling stories that makes you want to stay and learn more even after spending 2 1/2 hours walking and listening. I'd highly recommend this tour if you want to learn what makes Savannah tick and where all those street names and names of parks and places in the city come from. Thanks Don for a very educational and historic tribute to the cemetery and city.

This was one of the best walking tours I have experienced. Don is well versed in both the history of Savanna and of the Bonaventure Cemetery. The tour took almost three hours but my wife and I were never board. Don was able to answer any question thrown at him. Clearly, he is extremely experienced and knowledgeable with a good sense of humor.

Don was a fantastic tour guide!! He has an in-depth knowledge and passion for presenting the history of Bonaventure Cemetery. We did a trolley tour before meeting Don which gave a good overview but Don brought all the pieces together to give an authentic sentiment of Savannah. Don made it fun and he knows all the good stories. He was prepared with water for us and kept to the shade as much as possible to make his guests comfortable. We highly recommend touring Bonaventure Cemetery with Don!

Bonaventure Don is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about Savannah and Bonaventure Cemetery. He took the time to answer all of our questions. Before the tour, he does a good job communicating. He sends reminder texts and emails prior to your tour. He gives you his contact information in case there is a problem. While we were in Savannah, it was very hot. He was kind enough to have cold bottled water available for us. Even though my mother and I were the only ones scheduled for the day, he still went ahead with the tour. Other tour guides might have cancelled, but not Don! We highly recommend Don and his tour of Bonaventure Cemetery. This is definitely a place to go during a visit to Savannah. There is so much history to learn and Don is just the guy to give the tour!
