Just returned from the after-hours tour of Bonaventue Cemetery. The tour began at 5 p.m. and lasted until 8 p.m. , most of it under a full moon that seemed to hang just beyond the Spanish-moss laden live oak trees. Walking the many lanes of the cemetery by moonlight, we heard tale after tale about the residents of Savannah who were buried there, stories about the cemetery itself and detail-filled anecdotes from Shannon's own long history in the city. I highly recommend it.

One of the finest tours in Savannah. JUST FABULOUS. tour Bonaventure cemetary last night guided by Shannon Scott who was interesting,knowledgable and was very entertaining. I have been on his tours a number of times and always come back with guests when they visit Savannah and will continue to do so. This is a tour that is a must when visiting the most haunted city. Shannon is a credit to the city for keeping the spirits alive. One word 'FABULOUS'! Well worth the price....

Shannon is without a doubt one of the finest tour directors in the entire country. His knowledge of Bonaventure Cemetery and all of Savannah history is beyond dispute. His ability to combine historic figures and events in a provocative and moving experience speaks to his command of all of his subject matter. No one could ever question his love of Savannah and this is readily apparent in this tour. If you are taking only one tour in Savannah, this should be the one!

Taken many tours through out my travels and never experienced the enthusiasm and knowledge as our tour guide, Shannon Scott shared with us during our tour in Bonaventure Cemetery on 10/31/13. Shannon gave us insight into Savannah's deep southern history, folklore, its families and mysteries .Shannon Scott is by far the most interesting and charismatic storyteller ever. In Shannon's storytelling you can feel his love and respect for Savannah and Bonaventure.
