Overview

My name is Don Teuton, and mine is the best tour of historic Bonaventure Cemetery. My parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents are buried in these hallowed grounds and I will be as well. I’m on the Board of Directors of the Bonaventure Historical Society and an active volunteer for the same. For me, and mine, Bonaventure is a family tradition. If you’re looking for ghost stories or secret societies or other fanciful things, this is not the tour for you. There are other Bonaventure Cemetery Tours you can take if you want fiction. I believe that what actually occurred on these grounds, and in this city, is fascinating enough without the need to make things up. My tour is the only historically accurate walking tour of Bonaventure cemetery. Please join me, if you can. We'll have fun, I promise.

Don has so much knowledge about Savannah and the cemetery that he makes it “come alive”. I went with my kids (17 and 11). The 17 year old loved it as much as me but my 11 year old was a little bored at times....More

Excellent tour full of historical facts, gossip, and Savannah stories for every age. Don is an endless Bank of knowledge. You can’t visit Savannah properly without attending his cemetery tour.

I had the pleasure of taking a tour with Don a few years ago, and enjoyed myself so much that I took my husband when I returned to Savannah a few years later. Don is personable, charismatic, and clearly loves Bonaventure. Highly recommended!More
