We had never been to Savannah before and we're very much looking forward to our cemetary tour. Lisa Marie was a very informed tour guide who kept all of the group entertained with wonderful stories about the individuals and history of the Bonaventure Cemetery.

The tour was fantastic. Although the tour had many opportunities to stop for a few minutes, I would suggest that it might not be suitable for those in poor health. The tour was full of interesting stories and information. Lisa Marie was very knowledgeable.
