From the beginning it was easy to tell Shannon loves what he does. His ability to spin the yarn about the intimate details of the "Cemetery's" history kept my wife and I hanging on his every word. This man has definitely done his research...every question was answered with an intelligent and informative answer. We highly recommended this tour with Shannon... More

I would highly recommend this tour; Shannon does a seriously great job, he is so well read, he speaks clearly, there is such depth to the things he is talking about, you can just sense he's done his homework, knows his subject SO throughly.

Our family of three took the 10:00 am tour of Bonaventure Cemetery with Shannon Scott. The cemetery is beautiful and the architectural design of the tombstones and gravesites are very interesting. Shannon is a wonderful speaker with a deep voice that draws you into the story. He is very knowledgeable about the local history and the people buried at Bonaventure.... More

Jonathan is an outstanding storyteller who brings to life the deceased souls in Bonaventure Cemetery. He is engaging, thoughtful and at times poetic. I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 hours we spent walking the grounds.

Now that perhaps I have piqued your interest, allow me to state upfront you are dealing with a person who does not dole out compliments liberally. Having taken tours covering many different subjects across the country - some fantastic, some dreadful, I can say in all honestly that the tour given to my family and me from Alyssa of Bonaventure...

Shannon Scott is obviously charmed by Bonaventure Cemetery! His quick wit, charm, humor, and extensive knowledge is infectious. It was a lovely tour and I left feeling a true appreciation of the beauty, history, and mystery of a wonderful part of Savannah and its past.
