Full description
Your day begins with a tour of Bonaventure Cemetery to learn about the lives of notable inhabitants like 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 Erica Davis Low country restaurant, a local favorite whose owner and family have deep ties in Savannah. Their focus on Coastal Southern Cuisine brings together fresh seafood, barbecue, and southern sides in a menu that embodies the Low country. 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.

This was by far the best tour and tour guide I have had. Dennis Morrison is the bomb, I would take another tour with him anytime. He told us stories, history, and made this tour so much fun for 5 hours! I was amazed at how much he knew and could relate in such an awesome manner. We were taken to places that were not listed on the tour, and had this been our only tour of Savannah, I would not have been disappointed. The Wormsloe and Isle of Hope are fantastic to see, I would highly recommend the tour. The cookie tasting at the end was refreshing and fun and of course Dennis told us that company's history too.

Our Tour Guide, Chris, was the best!

We ended up being the only couple on the tour. Our tour guide, Chris, was wonderful. We ended up changing restaurants as the BBQ one closed. He took us to a wonderful seafood restaurant. We then toured all around Isle of Hope and Wormsloe Plantantion as he told us a lot of the history of Savannah. It was one of the best tours we have done in Savannah. Thank you!!
