I've been to Savannah countless times over the last 17 years. However, I had never been to Bonaventure. The dedication and passion Shannon exudes in his gift of story-telling shines through immensely. By the time the tour is over, you want more. More stories, more people, more Savannah. Then Savannah awaits. Shannon seems to have more information that wants to... More

This was an awesome tour. Shannon is a great story teller and his passion for his city and the families that make up the history of Savannah makes this a must do when visiting. Highly recommended.

My Wife and I had the pleasure of being on this tour with Shannon Scott himself. While in Savannah we went on a number of different tours. While they were fun and entertaining the tour with Shannon was worth every penny and every second. Let me start by saying that Bonaventure is absolutely beautiful and massive. I cannot imagine a...

This was my second Bonaventure tour- the first with Shannon and the second with Alyssa. They are both superb storytellers and give you the most enthralling tour of Bonaventure which covers the art, history and many intriguing supernatural and Masonic aspects of the origins of this beautiful place. I have a daughter in college in Savannah and have really been... More

My husband and I visited Savannah with another couple on our way to Florida...if we could give more than excellent as a review for Mr. Scott's tour of Bonaventure we would. He is brilliant (our little group had two retired history teachers), has an amazing knack for story telling and an encyclopedic knowledge of the city, the families who contributed... More

The tour lasted about 90 minutes with several stops at grave sites where the guide told 10-15 minute stories. Some of the information seemed far-fetched so I looked it up afterward and found several things to be inaccurate or untrue. Stories were pretty long and we could have covered more ground with shorter tales, though others in the group at... More

Thank you for your honest review, albeit was surprised you did not offer up any explanation to what you found was in error or inaccurate or far fetched, which may have been helpful to both us and future tour takers. As the cemetery and our theme is oriented around Freemasonry & other Secret Societies, and we have many who have... More

This was our third trip to Savannah and first time doing this tour. We highly recommend it. Shannon was a fantastic guide and demonstrated his extensive knowledge of Savannah and it's interesting inhabitants. We just loved hearing all the fascinating stories he told and enjoyed the slightly more esoteric bent to Savannah's history. Our kids, 15 and 11 also appreciated... More

Amazing and gigantic cemetery. Guide Alysa was entertaining with facts history and also funny info. Fascination that there are numerous underground chapels under sites accessed by hidden stairwells. Highly recommend.

I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Savannah. Its just a short drive outside of the main city and was easily the highlight of our trip.

We went on an afternoon history tour and enjoyed ourselves so much that we returned for the after hours tour the next evening. Some of the information in the tours overlapped but we still enjoyed ourselves. Shannon is a very good storyteller.
