Know More about this tour

Bonaventure Cemetery Tours - Stories Eternal
Oscar Wilde called it, "Incomparable." John Berendt gave it to the world in the pages of "Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil." Through 250 years, few cemeteries have touched the hearts and minds of artists and people, as has Bonaventure. Saying the name to a Savannahian is like speaking of their fondest friend. Let us guide you through her 100+ acres, and reveal things that simply can't be understood or experienced by simply going there on your own. Like a great dinner party, a part of Bonaventure's ritual is having a local make your acquaintance to all of the interesting characters, but before introducing you, we'll give you the story scoop on each, and you'll soon fit right in! Some that await are Johnny Mercer, Little Gracie, Conrad Aiken, Harry Hervey, and so many others famous and just "every day," that you'll be dizzy with details and images that will keep you coming back for a lifetime!

  • Absolutely wonderful! The tour was supposed to be 90 minutes but it was over 2 hours and full of interesting stories and information. We only touched on a small part of the cemetery but it was incredible to here of the famous, not so famous and the unknowns. Shannon has a very fluid way of storytelling and despite the fact it was incredibly hot and steamy, we couldn't get enough!

  • wonderful!! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out the most important pats of the cemetery. I had walked the cemetery before, but with a guide we understood so much more. We toured the museum where the Bird Girl is located--wonderful 3 museums and house within walking distance. Highly recommended, also

  • Very informative and the tour guide was excellent.

  • The tour was awesome. Shannon is so knowledgeable. I really enjoyed his tour and would recommend his tour to anyone going to savannah

  • The tour was great and our guide, Alyssa, did a wonderful job. Her stories were fun and fanciful and anecdotes well-told. Just be aware that not all are based on fact. I did some research and checking upon our return home and found that to be the case. However, I'd take the tour again - you gain so much insight into what makes Bonaventure what it is and Savannah what it is!

  • We loved the tour. Shannon Scott has a wealth of knowledge and delivers it with style. We saw the highlights of the oldest section. The walk wasn't too strenuous, but you have to stand for two hours. Don't bother checking in at the cemetery office. They are not connected with the tour and do not provide a Southern welcome. Read: I sat on the floor waiting out of the wind.

  • Me and two of my best friends went on this tour yesterday with Shannon Scott. It was one of the best tours I have ever been on. He was amazing with the amount of information that he knew and how he presented it. You get way more than you pay for. We all three definitely recommend this tour.

  • I have lived in Savannah, found out things I never knew, Of course, our tour guide Alyssa is a wealth of knowledge ! If you are wanting to learn the history of Savannah, this is the place to be !!!

  • Beautiful cemetery that's full of history. Shannon was an excellent guide/story teller!

  • Walking through the cemetery with Shannon was a 2 hour historical journey through the lives of Savannah's former citizens. The stories were clearly researched with passion and desire for authenticity. Facts and humor blended together made for an interesting window into Savannah's rich past. Would do the tour again, and would probably learn things I missed while looking around the haunting beautiful grounds.
