It is obvious from the start that Shannon Scott loves history, Bonaventure, and all the inhabitants of the cemetery. His audience was enthralled as he as he wove together the life and times of the Bonaventure occupants. He has a loud, commanding voice so it was always easy to hear him. That being said, I feel it is important to... More

Visited Savannah, GA with my family today for the first time. I knew we had to visit Bonaventure and upon further research, we decided to do the tour with Shannon Scott. It was phenomenal. The tour was a little over 2 hours long and we enjoyed every minute. The tour guide was very knowledgable and passionate about the history of... More

If you travel to Savannah, you are likely to take one of the many tours offered, and if you only take one, that one should be Shannon Scott's Bonaventure Cemetery Journey. This tour IS the essence of Savannah. If you want a tour that captures the spirit of the city--the history, characters, legend, and culture--this is the one. First off,... More

Just as no trip to Savannah is complete without a visit to Bonaventure, no trip to Bonaventure is complete without a tour given by Shannon Scott. Walk amidst the majestic live oaks with swaying spanish moss as he tells you the history and stories of Bonaventure, symbolism of the headstones, and brings to life so many notable people who have...

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!
