What to expect

Join your devoted and very knowledgeable guide, Shannon Scott for an insider’s view into the intriguing past of the historic cemetery and its departed inhabitants. The old saying is, no visit to Savannah is complete without a visit to Bonaventure: book your tickets for the Bonaventure Cemetery after hours tour to find out why.

On this guided tour that flies by magically, you'll be joining a very exclusive club of people who have seen the cemetery after it closes to the public. Not since it opened in 1846 has this been an opportunity, but thanks to your very special host, Shannon Scott, now it is.

You are literally locked in the cemetery the entire time; for the right taker, there's no price you can put on the joy of that. Imagine having the serenity, stillness and quiet of the cemetery, uninterrupted by the living world. Stories stretch from the present day all the way back to Bonaventure's plantation beginnings in 1754.

The topics range from the funny and uplifting to the macabre at its most morbid. Some of the stories include: Al Capone's Dead Friends, Serial killer with a Houdini twist, a bizarre romance & electric chair finish, Savannah's role in The DaVinci Code, Harry Potter's Bonaventure Origins, Lady Minerva & Jim Williams in Midnight in The Garden of Good and Evil... and more.

Bonaventure Cemetery After Hours is perfect for friends, family, your social club, church group, non-profit or anyone looking to do something completely and truly different in Savannah.
