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

Shannon is a perfect guide - he's deeply knowledgeable about the history of Bonaventure and is a great story teller. He's independently researched many of the folks who are buried there and can share stories about their families and histories. The 2 hours flew by and I learned so much! Highly, highly recommend Shannon Scott's tour of Bonaventure Cemetery. You... More

Shannon was a great guide and has clearly done his research when it comes to Savannah history! The tour was both very informative and highly entertaining, with many interesting tidbits woven into his stories on the people buried at Bonaventure. There's a very unique spirit to the town and Shannon really captured it during our two-hour walk around the cemetery.... More

My family took the noon tour with Alyssa. She was great. She is very knowledgable and enthusiastic. I will recommend this tour to others, in fact I already have. I recommended it to our our Uber driver who had never been.
