Oscar Wilde called it, "Incomparable." John Berendt gave it to the world in the pages "Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil." Through 250 years, few cemeteries have touched the hearts & minds of artists and people, as has Bonaventure. Tales that await are Johnny Mercer, Little Gracie, Conrad Aiken, Harry Hervey, and so many others famous & just "every day," that you'll be dizzy with details & images that will keep you coming back for a lifetime! Walking Tours Daily at 10 am & 2pm (Subject to Seasonal Change) Reservations Required! Call to Book or purchase online. No printing required.

I found the stories to be very interesting and entertaining. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. I didn't know that a cemetery could be fun.
