Boniventure Don was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city, cemetery, and their inhabitants. It was an absolute pleasure spend a few hours in such a serene setting with Don’s commentary. I will definitely recommend this tour at any opportunity I get, and will be doing it again on our next visit.

Excellent tour. Don is extremely knowledgeable, personable and entertaining. You can really tell he loves his job and has done his homework. He provides additional visual insights during his tour to add to your connection to the history. He also thinks about the comfort of his guests and offers water and bug spray if needed. Very thoughtful. This is a perfect way to start to your time in Savannah.

Don clearly loves Bon Aventure Cemetery. He gives a passionate yet factual tour. Savannah’s residents are both the dead and the living and through Don’s eyes we got to meet some of those who are part of Savannah’s rich history. Bon Aventure is a very beautiful place to spend a few hours. We felt that Don was sharing a place that is special to him and that he knows well, We learnt about some of the inhabitants, amazing sculptures and plants. We left feeling that we knew (and loved) Savannah a little bit more. We will definitely take this tour when we visit Savannah again. Don was also a brilliant advisor before our trip despite being on holiday himself. Thanksl to him we were able to make the most of our days in Savannah. Thank you Don!
