Owner description: My name is Don Teuton, and mine is the best tour of historic Bonaventure Cemetery. My parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents are buried in these hallowed grounds and I will be as well. I’m on the Board of Directors of the Bonaventure Historical Society and an active volunteer for the same. For me, and mine, Bonaventure is a family tradition. If you’re looking for ghost stories or secret societies or other fanciful things, this is not the tour for you. There are other Bonaventure Cemetery Tours you can take if you want fiction. I believe that what actually occurred on these grounds, and in this city, is fascinating enough without the need to make things up. My tour is the only historically accurate walking tour of Bonaventure cemetery. Please join me, if you can. We'll have fun, I promise.

Our tour with Don on Sunday afternoon was outstanding! Don's knowledge and familiarity with the cemetery couldn't be more solid! He explained SO much, and in a truly interesting manner.
On a totally different tour we took while in the city, I mentioned to the tour guide that we had done the cemetery tour earlier in our stay. She inquired as to who conducted it. I told her Bonaventure Don, and her comment was, "You got the best!"
This was a really interesting cemetery tour, first one I'd ever done. Don definitely set the bar high for any future ones!

All three generations of our family were entertained and educated in fine fashion. Don has great stories to tell about Savannah, the cemetery, history, and any other thing you'd like to know! We got so much more out of the cemetery than if we had tried to do it on our own. Thanks Don! :)

This was our first visit to Bonaventure Cemetery and I cannot image walking through it without having had this tour. Don is truly an amazing historian and really does make history come alive as he touches on the history of Bonaventure, it's residents and Savannah. We learned a great deal as well about the what certain images on the gravestones and monuments mean (obelisk, broken column or tree, etc). There is just so much we learned I am still thinking about many of the personalities and personal situations of those buried there and of course the historical times they lived and died in. Don came prepared to offer umbrellas (hot humid = pop up thunder storm potential) and ice cold bottles of water which we appreciated very much. We (parents and adult children) highly recommend this tour. This was our 5th visit to Savannah. Don't forget to put bug spray on before the tour!

We really enjoyed our tour with Don! I only wish we had gone on his tour before spending time in Savannah,I would have had a better idea of what I wanted to see. Thank you Don, for a great tour.

My husband and I booked this tour first because friends of ours told us it will be the best 2hrs you will spend in Savannah. They were right!!! Don was awesome. This guy knows his history!!! We enjoyed learning all of the history behind Savannah, and it helped as we walked around exploring the town. Bonadventure Cemetary is beautiful. Thank you Don for starting our Savannah trip out right.
