Yes, tickets must be purchased in advance. Our Bonaventure Cemetery tours often sell out so we suggest purchasing your tickets early to guarantee your desired tour day. Tickets may be booked online through FareHarbor with a Visa, MasterCard, or American Express, or by calling our office.
The 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. tours are appropriate for all ages. Adult tickets are $25 each, and we offer a reduced price for children ages 4-12 ($15). Children three and under are free of charge.
Our tours go out rain or shine, so please dress accordingly!
The Bonaventure Cemetery tours focus on history and symbolism, rather than scary/ghost stories. The Sixth Sense Savannah Ghost Tours, 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, except our Friday night paranormal investigation event, Inside the Harper Fowlkes House Museum. We are one of the original tour companies in Savannah, being in business for more than 20 years now. We are responsible for the research and investigations that put many of the now famous places on the map! Truly, not just a tour, a Savannah Experience.
Bonaventure Cemetery is massive at over 150 acres. The two-hour duration of the tour takes 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.
The tour takes place at Bonaventure Cemetery, located at 330 Bonaventure Road, Savannah, GA 31404.
