Definitely a must-do for history fans

Guided tour was awesome. Our guide knew lots of tidbits about the history of Savannah and the Bonaventure Cemetery inhabitants. I would definitely recommend. She also gave info for us Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil fans without making the entire tour about it.

Interesting tour

Signed up for the tour about 15 minutes before tour start. Immediately received instructions about meeting location which were wrong. After waiting at that location until the tour start time, contacted the phone number listed for the company. Spoke with a very responsive man who sent new location instructions and made sure we found the tour. We missed about the first 15". The tour guide did not greet us in any way to the small group. We just joined. She was very knowledgeable and clearly enjoyed her job. The walking pace was slow so I felt that we didn't see as much as we could have in the time allowed. However, we did learn a lot about this fascinating and beautiful cemetery.
Wonderful tour through Bonaventure Cemetery
