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

Shannon is an amazing source of knowledge and gave us an interesting history of Savannah while bringing us to many noteworthy grave sites of the people who played a huge part in Savannah's past. The tour was supposed to be two hours but Shannon gave... More

If you are looking for just one to tour to capture the physical beauty, the history, the families, and the legends of Savannah, then this is the tour to take. Shannon is able to bring the families and another era to life. Really interesting. So well done. One huge heads up--bring bug spray. This will make you the most popular... More

We signed up for a tour with Shannon Scott and about 30 minutes prior we received a call from a lady that said "did Shannon let you know that he isn't doing this tour." I said no. 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

We have been on many tours, some good, some bad. 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

My hat is off to Shannon!! My wife and I really enjoyed this Cemetery tour Thursday February 26, 2015 at 2:00 PM. The day was cloudy, blustery cold, but Shannon made this a day to remember. Shannon knows many details about Bonaventure Cemetery, and is great story teller. He is knowledgeable, entertaining, interesting, and a lot of fun. We read... More

It was a chilly February morning when I was part of a tour at Bonaventure Cemetery tour with Shannon Scott. Having Shannon as our tour guide made it one of the most memorable parts of our trip to Savannah. He is a master storyteller, historian, and artist that made this experience incredible! From the start of the tour, we were... More

I recently took a group of artists to Savannah for the Living Studio with Jeanne Oliver. She insisted that one of our highlights would be going to the Bonaventure Cemetery. I did my research and found that we had to have Shannon Scott as our tour guide. He did not disappoint. Although it was a chilly Feb. morning, Shannon kept... More

If you want to learn the history of a place, take a tour. If you want to learn the history of the individuals of that place, take a cemetery tour. But only if your tour guide is informed, entertaining, and loves what he does. Shannon Scott is just such a guide who loves to share his knowledge of the unique... More
