Through 250 years, few cemeteries have touched the hearts & minds of artists and people, as has Bonaventure. Tales that await are Johnny Mercer, Little Gracie, Conrad Aiken, Harry Hervey, and so many others famous & just "every day," that you'll be dizzy with details & images that will keep you coming back for a lifetime!

It was our last tour of our Savannah trip and probably the best I've ever experienced. Shannon Scott is an encyclopedia of facts and historical mystique. His stories brought us back to the eras of heroes and artistic legends with cultural context. Highly engaging and I didn't want the tour to end. I'd do this tour again today, if possible. Thank you.

Shannon Scott is the ultimate historian storyteller. What better way to spend a beautiful day and learn about the history of Savannah thru the cemetery. Shannon adds great humor to his confident presentation! My husband grew up in Savannah and had no idea of some of the history that was presented to us on this day!

If I could give this more than five stars, I would. This was, by far, the most enjoyable thing I experienced in Savannah. I can't praise Shannon Scott enough. He knows the history, and is masterful at conveying it. If you only have time to do one thing in this historic city, do this!
