Overview

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 have been to this cemetery a few times in the past, but while taking the tour the cemetery came to life. Well worth the cost!

Very interesting and historic. We learned about many of the "residences" in Bonaventure. Wear good shoes and bring some water! This is not a ghost tour but you will learn some Savanaha history!

The walking is not a problem for the kids, but depending on the time of year the heat could be an issue because there is no shade. Also, the tour is very historical, so while the teenagers and I enjoyed the tour, my eight... More
