FAQs – Bonaventure Cemetery Tours
Do I have to purchase tickets in advance?
Yes, tickets must be purchased in advance. Tours often sell out so we suggest purchasing your tickets early to guarantee your desired tour day. Tickets may be purchased through Fareharbor with a Visa, Mastercard or American Express.
Is the tour suitable for children, and what type of ticket should I purchase for a very young child?
The 10:00 am or 2:00 pm tours are appropriate for all ages. Adult tickets are $25 each, and we offer a reduced price for children ages 4-12 ($15). Children 3 and under are free of charge.
What if it rains?
Our tours go out rain or shine, so please dress accordingly!
What is the difference between all of the 6th Sense World tours?
The Bonaventure Cemetery tours focus on history and symbolism, rather than scary/ghost stories. The Sixth Sense Savannah Ghost Tours, Savannah Ghosts with Patrick Burns, and The Midnight Tours cover different sections of the south side of the Historic District. The America’s Most Haunted City Tour visits the north side of the Historic District. The south side is more residential than the north side, which is somewhat more industrial. Ultimately, each residence or property has its own unique story, so each tour – which stops at different locations – has different ghost stories. None of the walking tours in town will take you inside the properties, however, we are the original tour company that did the research and investigations that put these places on the map!
How much walking is involved and what is the pace?
Bonaventure Cemetery is massive at over 100 acres. The 2 hour duration of the tour will take you approximately a mile in distance. We walk at a leisurely pace and stop frequently to discuss interesting points along the way. We do recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes. We are the only tour company to offer lightweight, portable walking cane/seating upon request.
