Full description

Your day begins with a tour of Bonaventure Cemetery to learn about the lives of notable inhabitants such as, Academy Award-winning songwriter Johnny Mercer, Georgia’s first governor Edward Telfair, philanthropist Mary Telfair, as well as the tragic tales of poet Conrad Aiken and Gracie Watson. The Cemetery walking tour meanders under moss-draped oaks and along the bluff of the Wilmington River. Bonaventure Cemetery, dating back to 1846, is one of the most beautiful cemeteries. Following the cemetery tour, you will have lunch on your own at a favorite local restaurant. After lunch, the day continues to Wormsloe Historic site and a drive through the picturesque Isle of Hope Historic District. Your visit to Wormsloe includes a breathtaking drive down the famous live oak tree-lined drive. You will take a short walk to see the Plantation Tabby Ruins that date to the 18th Century and visit the museum of the Georgia State Park Historic Site. After Wormsloe, you will drive down Bluff Dr to view the Intercoastal waterway and the magnificent houses that range in style from Greek Revival to Craftsman Bungalows. After this drive along the bluff, the thought of looking for a Realtor will come to mind. Finally, a stop is scheduled at the Famous Savannah Byrd Cookie Company headquarters for shopping and tastings of Byrd’s Famous Cookies. Key Lime, Bennie Bits and Cheddar Cheese are just of few of the favorites.

Absolutely fascinating and Dennis shared so much detailed history with us. His presentation was full of fun and also very informative. I would highly suggest that anyone taking this tour make sure and ask for Dennis. I am having to use a walker and he was wonderful about accommodating me and the walker!

This was the best activity during our trip to Savannah. Our tour guide, Dennis, was very informative and truly knew all about the areas listed in the description, as well as all the areas along the trip. It was well paced without feeling rushed and allowed us to see other areas that we might not have visited otherwise.

Dennis was a fantastic tour guide with a wealth of knowledge about the history of Savannah and the surrounding area. He was funny, patient and kind. He accomodated the special needs I had with my walker and ability to get around at all the stops. I highly recommend him for any tour he might do!
