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.

The tour is so informative and interesting, and Jennifer was an excellent guide. Make sure to bring bug spray and wear closed toe shoes if you can!

one of the biggest cemetery I ever seen. we took a tour the first day of our week vacation through six sense tours. we thought it was a haunting tour but it was a history tour. It was a great tour that taught us about the history of savannah. what a awesome place.

A really nice, informative tour. Our guide, Jennifer, was super knowledgeable and interesting, without being hokey. She knew a lot about the cemetery and even spent about 15 minutes after the tour answering our questions and sharing personal stories with us! Definitely really sweet and fun to hang out with and the tour was a great value for the money. A really nice way to see the cemetery -- something you MUST do if you go to Savannah!

My sister & I took Shannon Scott's Bonaventure Tour a couple of days ago & we cannot stop talking about the many things he taught us. Shannon has a very rare ability to share stories, taking you back into any era & weave stories together that inspire you to think about, imagine, debate & discuss them endlessly after the tour ends.
He fascinates, tantalizes, challenges & teaches in such a manner that one feels as though you are sitting down with a friend, completely captivated by his stories about the intriguing friends/family in his life...which only ends up whetting your appetite to learn much, much more! He is an amazingly talented historian, researcher, teacher & storyteller.
The very highest compliment one can ever receive is for people to 'pay it forward' by passing all that we learn on to others & refer everyone we meet to take Shannon Scott's tour- which is exactly what we will continue to do. I will definitely take Shannon's tour (& hopefully partake in the after hours dinner event) every single time I am in Savannah- I have a feeling his knowledge/story is an endless, fascinating, wonderful adventure that will teach me something new every single time! This is by far the most phenomenal tour I have ever experienced in Savannah

You can tell Susan is very passionate about what she does. She made the cemetary tour much more captivating that it might have been had we had another tour guide. She was very generous with her time and extensive knowledge about not only the cemetary, but other things to see in do while in Savannah. Wish we could have had her for our other tours around town! P.S. if you want to hear about ghosts in Savannah, take one of the night tours, as they don't do "ghost-talk" within the cemetary!
