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.

Susan was the perfect tour guide to take us through this enchanting park - We learned so much about the cemetery's symbolism and history. Susan was knowledgeable, animated and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn more about Savannah's past residents.

A little bit of fact...a little bit of fiction...and a whole lot of fun! Susan Davis puts her storytelling skills to good use as she brings this historical cemetery alive.

In my opinion, this tour was far better than ALL the other tours we've been on inSavannah. I was expecting a history lesson, but our guide, Susan Davis, made it such an enjoyable/ spooky/ informative experience. She really knew her stuff and showed great passion for all of Bonaventure's rich history. I HIGHLY recommend this tour, as well as Mrs Susan Davis !!!!

This was our second trip to Savannah and Bonaventure. The first time we went without a tour guide, and I would highly recommend Susan's tour and then taking some extra time after to walk around. The azaleas were in full bloom and beautiful. Susan gave us a great overview of the cemetery, but her stories, from the details about particular grave sites to the personal stories of the people buried there, were fascinating and her humor made this a tour anyone would enjoy. Would love to go back with her again to hear more!

This tour meets at the cemetery, and we made our reservations right on the website that morning. We were able to show her our etickets, so it was very convenient. Definately bring the bug spray and good walking shoes! There is a small bathroom at the entrance.
