So cool to learn about the history of Savannah and lives of those currently residing at Bonaventure! The sculptures are fantastic. It's a MUST SEE!

We booked a tour of Bonaventure Cemetery and little did I know what an outstanding time we would have. Shannon Scott is a fascinating story teller and he entertained us the entire tour. He brought the backstory of Bonaventure and it's famous inhabitants to life! This tour with Shannon is a "must" if you are in Savannah!

My mother and I took this tour in the morning. There is parking and bathrooms at the cemetery. We were captivated from the moment the tour began. Shannon has such passion for his work and it shown in his tour. We learned much about the history of Savannah and the history of the cemetery. The tour lasts about two hours.... More

I am from Savannah but after graduating I've moved around a bit. My family and I took this tour because I didn't have all the back stories to Bonaventure. I mean I have family buried there but that's about it. Shannon is a very articulate story teller and very knowledgeable about his craft. He answered every question thrown at him... More

This was a great tour of Bonaventure Cemetery. Shannon Scott told great stories and made the tour very enjoyable. What a beautiful place to visit. It was nice having someone familiar with the area providing the details.

Our group of 5 booked the Bonaventure Tour with Shannon Scott a few days in advance. As other posts mentioned, it would be best to book the early morning tour, especially in the summer. Unfortunately we were dropping someone at the airport that morning so booked an afternoon tour and it was so HOT and humid! Shannon emailed prior to... More

Walked for two + hours listening to Shannon Scott bringing the stories to life and was not bored for one second. Would have gone for another two hours. Excellent!

Shannon was awesome! Took my 11 year old daughter on the Bonaventure Cemetery and Shannon was awesome. Tons of cool stories about the history of Savannah and the founding families. Definitely worth it.

Mr. Scott is a great story teller and host. Very interesting tour...not creepy. More about Savannah and people that have made Savannah so unique. PLEASE take the time to visit Bonaventure Cemetery, and if it fits your schedule, with Mr. Scott. It is obviously his passion to share the stories of those that are "resting" there. Thank you, Mr. Scott!... More
