This is a 2 to 2 1/2 hour walking tour. Shannon is a historian, author and storyteller. You receive information that is on legal documents as well as the myths and legends. Love the cemetery and Shannon made it even more enchanting

Highly recommend this tour. Shannon is a great storyteller and is a member of the local historical society. The insight he provided on the various attractions in Bonaventure made for some fascinating stories. Also, his insight on the symbolism contained in the various elements of the markers was very interesting. Do not miss Bonaventure, and do yourself the favor of... More

Shannon Scott's "Bonaventure By Day" tour is fabulous! As a first time visitor to Bonaventure Cemetery and Savannah in general, (who has always been fascinated by anything historical and supernatural), I was dying to take Shannon's tour. Shannon is a gifted storyteller and is genuinely passionate about the research that goes into learning more about the various gravesites in this... More

To say Shannon Scott's Bonaventure Tours are entertaining is an understatement. The guy spends his life in research on all things Savannah, paranormal and Bonaventure. His knowledge and story telling brings the dead back to life. And while he has a well crafted script Shannon is unafraid to answer off subject questions or provide insider knowledge on historic Savannah. He... More

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone, especially someone with a fascination in Savannah and it's history. Shannon is a knowledgeable and engaging storyteller and I am definitely going to attending the night tour. It has easily been the best tour I've ever been on!

We did a private tour of Bonaventure and the Catholic cemetery. It was so interesting. Shannon is knowledgeable and a very interesting tour guide. He has personal experiences with a lot of the families in the cemeteries because of his years of living in Savannah. I highly recommend a private tour. He spent over 2 hours with us!
