This was the second tour we've taken with Shannon, the first was a daytime tour in November of 2016. Both trips we took to Bonaventure were the highlights of each trip to Savannah. This man is a story-teller in every sense of the word (bring tissues because this place will bring you to tears.) I can't begin to describe the... More

We took a private tour with Shannon of the cemetery. I would definitely rate him as one of the best guides we have ever had! He is so knowledgeable of the history of this cemetery and its occupants. You will not want the tour to end!

I had Bonventure on my list, read the previous reviews on Shannon Scott and booked him. My husband and I (on honeymoon in Savannah) loved this tour. Shannon brought the history to life, made connections between people in history, taught us so much in the two hours we were in the Cemetery about local history, it was amazing. He was... More

We spent a wonderful evening touring the grounds of Bonaventure while Shannon shared tales of the dead resting here. Not tales of ghosts, but stories of the lives of Savannah past. Thanks Shannon for a memorable evening stroll.

If you're going to is it Bonaventure, and you should, you need to take this tour. This place is out of the way, miles from the historic district, so you'll need to drive or take a $10 Uber ride (each way). Shannon know the place inside out and gives you local flavor. The Johnny Mercer grave and family story is... More

I never thought I would enjoy a tour of a cemetery, but Shannon was a terrific tour guide and taught us a lot about the history of Savannah and the importance of where its people are buried.

Shannon Scott is by far one of the best tour guides that I have had the pleasure of dealing with in my travels. His knowledge of the Bonaventure Cemetery is impressive to say the least. You could wander the cemetery for hours just attempting to locate the final resting places that he highlights during his tour, but you would not... More

Our visit was so special because of our great tour guide, Shannon Scott. He shared his knowledge of the history of the area and the people in the cemetery. His story telling was so interesting the two hour tour flew by. Don't miss out, use Shannon Scott as your tour guide. .
