Tonight I took the after hour Bonaventure tour. It was amazing! Shannon has done a great deal of research on the history and people from savannahs past. Being a Savannah native There are story's you grow up hearing but to the outside world they are very hush hush, shannon has brought to life some of these story's and they are... More

There were so many things covered on the tour! It was great to learn so much about Savannah! I live here, grew up here, and Shannon was able to teach me things I never knew about our wonderful city! If you are visiting Savannah, Shannon has a wealth of knowledge to share! If you are a local..... great Savannah stories... More

You could tour Bonaventure Cemetery on your own but Shannon provided information and stories that made the tour much more informative than just wandering around looking at headstones. You can choose the transport provided or drive yourself to the cemetery. We drove ourselves and had a chance to linger afterward. Definintely a great tour.

My friend and I were visiting Savannah last week and took several tours. Our favorite was the Bonaventure tour with Shannon Scott. His knowledge and story telling abilities are outstanding. We heard so many interesting stories and facts about Bonaventure and those resting there. We look forward to returning next year and taking his other tour. If you are looking... More

Boring, pedantic, self-aggrandizing three-hour lecture. We couldn't wait for it to be done! All the guy did is talk about himself - every story involved him or had some connection to him. He did not engage or involve the group members in any way - and he completely ignored or dismissed any questions or comments. Totally full of himself. A... More

Well, its been said, you can't win then all. Its also been said, some people see their glass half empty. Even so, I'm always open to a more direct conversation before a review like this happens so that it doesn't just come off as a rant, even in spite of the use of great words like pedantic. At a glance,... More

One of my friends found Shannon's site and made our reservation to go on his tour. I am an avid ghost tour seeker and have been on many tours around the US, but this one was truly special. I personally do not like the rehearsed dress up tours where guides have to memorize scripts because they do not seem real.... More

The trip was pre-arranged as to what we were to do and see. Another "Ghost Tour" was scheudled and paid for in advance. We went and no one showed up we waited... More

We stopped in Savannah on our way to Florida for only 1 night. Savannah is beautiful,we had never been there before & you can read a lot about it before you go. That said, we wanted to see the riverfront & the squares, but we wanted a tour that had an insight into the city that you can't find just... More

It's no wonder that the camera likes Shannon Scott re: his TV appearances I've seen as he has a fun, kind of naughty/intriguing way of telling a story that reels you in - but the stories are chock full of detail! As fun as it is, this is a more serious, almost academic approach to a "ghost tour," more than... More

Enjoyed a great afternoon touring and learning some very interesting facts on Bonaventure Cemetery.. as well as some of Savannah's past noted residents. Our tour guide.. Shannon Scott, provided some remarkable storytelling skills into the lives of those facinating people as well as the beautiful history that is known as Bonaventure Cemetery. I highly recommend this informative and captivating walk... More
