very informative and entertaining tour
Kate_A, Jan 2023
A great tour with a local expert! We feel very lucky to have had a tour with Pascal- he is passionate about this cemetery, a wealth of information, gifted storyteller and a welcoming host. Do yourself a favor and a book this tour. You will not be disappointed.
Best last minute experience!
Lane_R, Dec 2022
We decided at the last minute to join Paschal's walking tour of Bonaventure and it ended up being one of our favorite Savannah experiences! He did a fantastic job weaving local stories while helping keep our 7yo engaged. He had mid-tour snacks and drinks which was a fun touch. Highly recommend!
Amazing tour
Tanvi_J, Dec 2022
This tour was awesome! Paschal was absolutely fantastic and incredibly knowledgeable and I learned so much!! I had no idea about the symbolism behind a lot of the monuments and his explanations and background information made this tour so rich. It was also such a great way to explore the cemetery.
Excellent tour!
Richelle_D, Dec 2022
Paschal was so knowledgeable, entertaining, and a great storyteller. We really enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it.
Great day at Bonaventure!!
Rebecca_C, Dec 2022
Awesome tour of Bonaventure. Our tour guide Paschal was incredible!! So extremely knowledgeable about Savannah history and the connection to the cemetery. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Well worth the time.
Great tour but watch out for meeting location
Yin_B, Dec 2022
There are two entrances to the cemetery and the address listed and given to Uber driver will put you on the wrong side. The GPS coordinates are correct. This should be clarified in the description. Other than that the tour is informative and the guide is great!
Interesting History and People... Even In a Cemetery!!
Mary_N, Dec 2022
This was a great tour and our leader Pasqual (sp??) was very engaged, friendly and interesting! I would recommend him as a tour guide for sure!!
Paschal went above and beyond!
Colleen_H, Dec 2022
Paschal went above and beyond for our tour! We ended up being the only people attending the tour so it was great to have a one-on-one experience. He turned the 2 hour tour into a 3 hour experience. Not only did he have a personal connection to the cemetery, he was knowledgeable about all the symbolism and families in the cemetery. A must-see experience! Definitively glad I didn’t just aimlessly wander around the cemetery as I would have been missing so much!
Great tour
Larissa_S, Dec 2022
Beneventure is absolutely beautiful and our guide, Paschal was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Thoroughly recommend this tour
Awesome trip our guide...
Debra_C, Dec 2022
Awesome trip our guide was the best🥰 love the knowledge and history . He also informed us of some good places to eat.
Fun- interesting- worthwhile
Kari_L, Nov 2022
We really enjoyed our tour with Jessica. She has a great knowledge combined with a wry sense of humor. We learned so much more than when we did a self guided tour last year. My teens weren’t exactly excited at the prospect of touring the cemetery but this ended up being a highlight for them.
Great tour
JulieAnne_S, Nov 2022
Our guide Paschal was excellent. He is humorous and extremely knowledgeable. I learned a new word from him. Taphophilia. I have visited many cemeteries in many countries. I found Bonaventure to be one of the most beautiful.
Educational, interactive and fun!
Matt_M, Nov 2022
Our guide, Paschel, was very knowledgeable and made the tour educational, interactive and fun. He even stuck it out with us in the rain! Highly recommend.
Best tour in Savannah
Paul_P, Nov 2022
Our guide, Paschal, was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining and prepared. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to delve deeper into Bonaventure.
Beautiful cemetery
Nicole_H, Oct 2022
Our first tour guide was running (really) late so Paschal arrived and started our tour for us. He was with us for about 45 minutes and he did a wonderful job. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. He knew a lot of great details. Our second tour guide (who was the originally scheduled guide) was fine but we wish we had been able to stay with Paschal. He seemed to be more knowledgeable on unique things and we got along with him really well. I would say Paschal was a 5, the other guide was more like a 3, so I gave the tour a 4.
Great!
Julie_G, Oct 2022
Excellent tour- our guide Paschal was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. It's a bit of walking but not too much. Ground is uneven, we should have listened to the advice in the instructions to wear sneakers. They provided cold water and a quick break to sit, which was appreciated. Would definitely recommend!
Great Tour to Really Experience the Cemetery
Jeffrey_S, Oct 2022
Jessica was a great tour guide. She was knowledgeable and interesting and gave us anecdotes and facts we wouldn’t have gotten on a self-tour. I highly recommend this tour for getting the full Bonaventure Cemetery experience. We’ve already recommended it to another couple staying in our hotel.
The highlight of our trip!
Bre_R, Sep 2022
We did the 2 hour walking tour and our guide, Rich Lane was so incredibly knowledgeable and fun! We had a great morning walking the cemetery and hearing the stories of the different Savannah families. His story about Gracie was especially haunting in the best way. I’m very glad we booked this last minute tour. It was the highlight of our trip!
Rain or Shine!! A shining success
Shera_L, Sep 2022
Even I’m the rain, this was an amazing cemetery tour. Our guide Paschal shared his knowledge of the history of Bonaventure. His passion for history, genealogy and Savannah were evident. I definitely recommend this tour.
