With a wealth of knowledge and insider stories Shannon Scott entertains. He opens the curtain and you decide how much more you want to know!

Parts of the cemetery were closed due to hurricane Matthew but what we saw was very nice. Shannon does a great job and is very knowledgeable. My son and I are looking forward to going back in December to hopefully view the area that was closed. Fingers crossed.

Shannon Scott presented an in depth tour of Greenwich cemetery being that Bonaventure is closed for hurricane damage. His story telling and knowledge of Savannah is excellent. Time flew by and we plan to come back to Savannah to go on a tour of Bonaventure in the next year or two. I give it 2 thumbs up

The evening tour was excellent. Shannon Scott is a great story teller whose passion for Bonaventure Cemetery is evident. I would love to walk around the cemetery myself, during the day to see more, but due to the recent hurricane, it is closed to the public. The only way in, at this time, is a guided tour. Totally worth the... More

Despite not being able to visit the grounds in it's entirely due to storm damage, it was still an amazing tour.

Loved the stories! Shannon did at wonderful job. Would have liked a smaller group, but I believed this was due to the Hurricane damage clean up.

I believe this may be a terrific tour. However, your tour reps when calling your website is misleading. I called 10/26. I was told that you had access to the Bonaventure Cemetery and that we would see parts of it. Yet, the cemetery staff, security, visitor center all said it was closed to all tours and that you were taking... More

Thank you for such a beautiful review! It also serves as evidence that in spite of some more spiteful recently that "Bonaventure Is Open" for business but with some touring restrictions because of the hurricane! We're still here and will be bigger and better than ever soon! Can't wait to have you come back! More
