The tour was fun and very informative. Richard kept the tour interesting with plenty of stories that were not what I was expecting. Lots of information on symbolism and plant life in the cemetery. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Stunning tour of the cemetery. Chris was a phenomenal guide. His love for the cemetery and the stories of Savannah show in every moment of the tour. The stories he shared of famous inhabitants of the cemetery and legends were so great. Would go on the tour again it was so much fun.

Dawn Martin was a very knowledgable tour guide, you can tell she has passion for the tours. I learned so much about the art of grave markings. The cemetery is very large and could take days to explore. This two hour trip was enough, I can only take so many dates! It made me think about my own mortality and final resting place. I would recommend the tour. We biked there from town and booked at the well run little shop. I suggest you bring snacks, water, walking shoes, and a camera if you go. So much to learn, best to take a tour.

Bonaventure Cemetery Tours are fantastic. Dawn is very knowledgeable and gives a very educational tour. I wish the tour had been four hours instead of two.

Our guide Nick was so interesting and had a dramatic yet respectful way of delivering interesting information about the residents of this beautiful cemetery. He was kind enough to let us join in even though we had gotten behind in traffic, and was engaging and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the history of the cemetery, some of its more prominent residents, and about the beautiful sculptures and stonework. Highly recommend this tour!

Very informative and interesting, with a bit of humor thrown in by Richard. Great exercise walking around a quiet place for two hours. Group of 9 and Richard was loud and clear enough to hear all details.
