Even with the groups touring on foot and on segway, it didn't feel crowded. People were respectful and calm and the atmosphere was just right. This cemetery is beautiful and serene, even on a weekend day. I wish I had been able to spend more...More

This was our first stop in Savannah. We arrived early and decided to check out the cemetery first thing. It is an old cemetery with graves dating back to the 1800's. There are no longer allowing burials here. There are many sections that we didn't...More

A wonderful, peaceful place to spend an hour or all day. We thoroughly enjoyed our riding tour so much that we stayed and toured it again without the guide.

Don't miss Gracie's grave and learn her story. Has so many lanes to explore by car. Interesting to see the different sections from different eras.

I have always wanted to visit this cemetery. The cemetery is lovely and beautiful. I recommend driving your car around to look at things on a too cold or too warm day. There was some lovely sculpture but not as much as I had thought....More

Lovely place to enjoy some quite time. A history buffs dream. Wonderfully maintained. There is also a app available that narrates the history and specific points of interest.

See my review under "Savannah Cruzers." Tess' golf cart tour is the best way to see the wonders of Bonaventure Cemetery and learn its history.

I took an Uber from the historic district and we traveled by highway part of the way, so it’s hard to know if there would be a safe bike route that did not include the highway. The neighborhood surrounding the cemetery... More
