“After Hours Tour highlight of weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

My wife and I have visited the Bonaventure Cemetery in the past on our own, but saw and experienced it in a whole new light on the After Hours Tour with Shannon Scott. Unless you hear the amazing stories of the diverse cast of characters, you will never fully appreciate Savannah or Bonaventure. Also, caught the tour with the azaleas in full bloom which was truly amazing. Just be sure to bring lots of bug spray and you will have a great time.

“Evening 2 1/2 tour with Shannon Scott”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

We scheduled a tour with Shannon for the late afternoon tour and he was exceptional guide and story teller. We so enjoyed all his stories and the insight he gives on his tours. Thanks for the fun evening and we have started to watch you movie and so far it is great. You really have an art for the work you do.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

Very interesting, informative journey! My husband and I go to Savannah twice a year and ALWAYS include Shannon Scott in our plan. I learn something new each time we go. You could never tire from the knowledge Shannon shares with the crowd. Beautiful this time of year with all of the flowers and trees in bloom. You HAVE to have bug spray but if you forget Shannon usually has some he is willing to share. So different from the other tours we have tried. This is not a scary tour. It is stories and information shared about the people buried in this beautiful cemetery. Shannon presents their lives in such a respectful manner. I highly recommend this!!!

“Informative and well-done tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

Was expecting a more 'silly/scary' tour, but Shannon Scott made the tour a very worthwhile, interesting, and informative event. His presentation and knowledge were great, and he really seems to love his material. I came away with a new perspective not only on Savannah, but on the people and history of the region, and what life (and death) was really like back then.
