I have been to Bonaventure many times over the years while visiting Savannah. Decided to make a small investment in this tour and was glad I did. Our group that morning was only 7 and I was only one from GA. He interweaves stories from one family to the next keeping the listener spellbound. He gave the history of the... More

Super fun and informative tour! Our guide was a great story teller and incredibly knowledgeable about the cemetery and Savannah in general. She kept a nice easy pace for the 2 hour walk and made it fun for everyone involved. Side note - We took the recommended limo with Stephen Magliaro and had a great time! Cool limo, fun stories...

I've been on two of Shannon Scott's tours -- one a cemetery tour, the other a privately arranged tour -- and both were very good. Shannon is an excellent storyteller, with many interesting anecdotes about everything from voodoo and Bonaventure Cemetery to free mason history and anecdotes about "Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil" book. He's a real... More

This walk through history with Shannon was a pure delight as he had a depth of knowledge about such a wide range of subjects. He was able to bring the stories of the "residents" of the cemetery to life in a very personal and touching way. Don't miss this walk through the heart of Savannah.

My mom and I visited Savannah in October and signed up for Shannon's tour which was just weeks after the Hurricane Matthew. We quickly discovered that Shannon's tour of Bonaventure Cemetery was much more than pointing out the sights. He differentiates himself from other tour guides by personally researching and uncovering new information on the rich history of the cemetery... More

Highly recommend this tour. Shannon is very knowledgable about Bonaventure Cemetery's history, which made this a very informative and enjoyable experience. Will be back when all the damage from Hurricane Matthew is cleaned up.

The most beautiful cemetery I have been to yet you can just feel the history and mystery of the old times and stand and wonder about all that has past

We really enjoyed this tour! It was very informative although we were not able to get right up to Johnny Mercer's plot ( because of it being blocked off by Hurricane damage), it was still very interesting and we thoroughly enjoyed all the stories! I just don't think you can get this kind of info on your own walking tour... More
