This two+ hour tour was well-worth the price of admission. Shannon clearly loves and is knowledgable about Savannah and her history. He is a gifted storyteller and makes the lives of Savannah's founders and interesting citizens come alive.

I liked this tour so much that I took it for a second time recently with my daughter. Bonaventure is such an unique place and Shannon Scott really delivers so many historical and personal details in his narrative - as beautiful as it is to just wander Bonaventure, knowing the history and a little about some of the people buried...

This tour was exactly what I thought it would be: fantastic. I scored it as very good because I think it should start a bit later in the evening. Of course, this may be out of the hands of the tour guide. It would have been nice to have pictures of the cemetery after dark, but the sun was in... More

Shannon gives an exciting, even inspiring tour. Worth the money! More than that-worth the time in the hot humid July weather! Shannon is an expert storyteller and well studied in the history of the area. Don't miss his tour!

I would recommend this tour as a necessity to anyone coming to Savannah. It's a wonderful way to learn the history behind everything in the city and fully appricheate it all. Shannon was a wonderful guide- he is both very interesting to listen to and extremely intelligent. So glad I did this!

My husband and I took the Bonaventure Tour with Shannon and walked away with nothing but positive opinions. His stories seemed well researched and his delivery was intellectual and engaging. The content was more history and local lore, less hokey ghost stories. I will definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Savannah.

Clearly, the art of story-telling is not dead! Shannon Scott is superb as he weaves facts and local lore into a riveting history lesson. He has definitely done his research! The cemetery itself is chillingly beautiful - even more so when you begin to unwrap some of its mysteries.

Shannon Scott is the most knowledgable tour guide we have ever had... You can tell he researches every aspect of the cemetery and the families it houses in order to ensure he is 100% factual and offers his tour the best experience possible. The best!!!

This tour was the best part of our stay in Savannah and Shannon was by far the best tour guide in Savannah as well as one of the best tour guides either of us have ever had. (And we've each traveled a lot!) His knowledge and passion had us captivated right from the start and he gave so much background... More

I was very interested in touring the cemetery after reading other reviews and seeing pictures of the monuments. Our tour guide on this tour was Alyssa and she was a knowlegdeable and fabulous story teller. She knew how to keep us all engaged in the fascinating and sometimes very sad stories of the inhabitants of Bonaventure. Alyssa also provided us... More
