Great day with Shannon!
, Jan 2021
This was an excellent tour! Shannon is extremely knowledgeable of general history, Georgia history, and of course detailed history of the cemetery itself. We learned a lot and got so much more out of the tour than we would’ve gotten if we had visited the cemetery on our own. I highly recommend this tour with Shannon!
Adventure in Bonaventure

We totally enjoyed our experience at the cemetery. Our guide, Shannon, was very knowledgeable as well as entertaining. Thank you!
Great tour and guide
, Jan 2021
Great tour and a slow relaxed pace. Our Guide, Susannah, was very funny and knew a lot of information. We relay enjoyed our time there. We had a great day and it was good for our family. We did not first understand where to meet our guide. There are round cement tables by the new restrooms to the side of the Cemetery Office. That is where we met. I would recommend it to others.
Amazing and informative

Wonderful afternoon.

We had a blast on our tour. Susannah was extremely knowledgeable and was very interesting! We wandered around the cemetery beforehand and it added so much to everything to have the stories behind some of the deceased and the symbolism on the grave stones.
Definitely would recommend

Great family experience. Perfect balance of stories and history.

Shannon was a great guide. The 3 kids loved the stores and are begging to go in the ghost tour. If you love history and Savannah then a tour of Bonaventura Cemetery is worth it.
Excellent tour of the Bonaventure cemetery.

Very Interesting

The lady leading showed pictures of some of the people and she put a lot of work into her research, she genuinely cared about the cemetery and it’s inhabitants.
