    We met at the cemetery with our guide Dawn Martin. She is a friendly, intuitive woman with a ton of knowledge. I learned so much about cemetery art and Savannah during the tour. Dawn even sang us a medley of Johnny Mercer songs at his grave. Can't recommend this highly

    My husband and I highly recommend the Bonaventure Cemetery tour. Hopefully you’ll be lucky enough to have Dawn of the Dead as your guide. She was fabulous- knowledgeable, personable, and helped to orient our visit at Bonaventure. We are very impressed with her wealth of

    Our guide was very informative and engaging, however, there were some logistical/booking issues with other guests and another tour group that made the start of the tour really uncomfortable for us. Our tour also went about 45 minutes over the predicted time which makes it

    Response from AngelaLynn6SW, Owner at Bonaventure Cemetery Tours
    Responded 3 weeks ago
    Thank you so much for your feedback. This isolated incident was very unfortunate for all involved, as it can sometimes be confusing with multiple companies now starting their tours at the same time and location as we have for many years. There has been much discussion between our company employees and others to prevent this from happening again. Due to the large size of your tour that day, your host was trying to accommodate for the slower pace of some of the guests, and didn't want to omit any of the stories, so it did run over time a bit. We are reminded to keep everyone's schedule in mind and we do hope that you enjoyed your stay in Savannah. We do look forward to seeing you again soon on one of our many adventures.
