If you do one thing in Savannah, make sure it is this Bonaventure Tour with Shannon Scott. He was amazing, keeping all of us, including two teenagers, utterly captivated. We could have listened to Shannon's stories all day. Next time we are taking the after hours tour. Thanks Shannon for one of the highlights of our trip to Savannah.

This was a good tour, full of history and facts. Shannon Scott has done extensive research, and knows how to tell the stories in a respectful manner. Not terribly creepy or "scary", so if you are looking for a ghost tour, this isn't it. I really enjoyed hearing about the pasts of the people buried, and know that without the... More

Whether the tales are amusing, or tinged with sadness, Shannon holds your attention with every word. From the famous, to the infamous, to the ordinary residents of Bonaventure, you will find time flies as the stories are... More

My great grandfather was a photographer in Savannah in the 1870's, I had asked Shannon to help us find some of the locations of his views! to my amazement he was able to take us to every location. Along with a wealth of information and great story telling we enjoyed every minute... More

She said well he doesn't do all the tours he needs time off throughout the week.... What? We were totally deceived by his... More

This one was totally different in fact I really hesitate to call it a tour. what Shannon provides is more of a walking history lesson of Bonaventure cemetery. his knowledge of the cemetery is quite extensive to say the least. As far as activities in Savannah go, this was the... More
