Owner description: 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 (Subject to Seasonal Change) Reservations Required! Call to Book or purchase online. No printing required.

This is a very helpful and informative tour. Our tour guide Donna had extensive knowledge highlighted so many aspects of the cemetery and Savannah history in general that I would have never known otherwise. One word of caution: bring water along in the summer, as this place can get very hot.

Our Tour guide was Donna and she gave us years of history and stories and insight into the time period of when Cemeteries were part of your life. Stories of families having picnics on the family plots and walking under the weeping willows that lined the walking paths, on Sunday afternoons. The peaceful setting of the Cemetery is so beautiful and monuments are amazing examples of fine art. A must see and using Bonaventure Cemetery Tours gave us the details that we would never had gotten on a self walking Tour. Wear comfortable shoes and take some water, but make sure to take this tour.

Donna was our tour guide through the cemetery. She was great,. Very interesting and you could tell how much she loved her job. Don't miss this tour when you are visiting Savannah.

When my mom was a little girl, she was "forced" to tour cemeteries by the 2 ladies that raised her. She thought I was out of my mind that top of my Savannah list was a tour through Bonaventure Cemetery. But, this is not your average cemetery. It is absolutely gorgeous and park-like. Was disappointed that vandals post "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" damaged the "bird girl" monument to the point that it has been removed (you can see it in a museum, but it would have been nice to see it in its natural home), but there is still plenty to see. We did a tour with Donna, and she was a great speaker and story teller, and we learned so much about Savannah history. Definitely worth having the guided tour as opposed to wandering through on your own.
