I was fortunate today on my last day in Savannah to experience the best tour I have ever experienced. I have done tours in London, Bath, Stonehenge, Paris, etc. but I have never been as totally into the story being told the way that Shannon can do, His passion for the history, art, architecture of the pre-Revolutionary War era thru...

Shannon really knows his material for this tour (we took a day tour during the week). So much history and a bit of speculation to add a little spice. An amazing experience. Note - tour can run up to 3.5 hours. Wear comfy shoes and a bottle of water might be wise! Thanks Shannon!

I looked forward to this tour the whole time I was planning the trip. This was the highlight of my stay in Savannah, the history, the paranormal experience was my draw to the cemetery but having Shannon as a tour guide was a huge bonus!

There is no one as informed about Bonaventure Cemetery as Shannon Scott. He is a brilliant and engaging story teller and his passion for both Savannah and Bonaventure Cemetery, shines through in this tour. He knows the most minute details about the Cemetery and can answer absolutely any question you might have. I highly recommend the evening tour, where the... More

Bonaventure Cemetary is beautiful and Shannon Scott brought it to life. Shannon is an expert story teller. With his help I was able to easily imagine people in the 1800's clinking tea cups at their beloveds grave site on a hot June day. I thought I was going on a story telling tour, I left with not just stories but... More

Although we had read excellent reviews, we were still amazed and resoundingly impressed with the history, lore, knowledge and storytelling of Shannon Scott. We were mesmerized from the first few minutes. We hated to see it end. We have no doubt that Shannon could have enthralled us for days with the depth of his knowledge and his storytelling style that... More

Bonaventure After Hours with Shannon Scott was one of the best tours I have ever . taken. I used a Living Social coupon; however I would have paid full price for this amazing tour. There are many "characters" and prominent folks buried in this cemetery and Shannon is an incredible story teller. He gave lots of background info on each... More

We live in the Savannah area and wish we had taken this particular tour long ago. We also plan to take future guests on the tour. He covers so many items that would be of interest to new residents and old. Mr. Scott was entertaining as well as factual. He answered all questions with flair. Really great time!
