My husband and I travel quite a bit and always take suggested tours. This tour was re commended and highly rated, thus was a must do, on our trip to Savannah. Nothing quite prepared me though for Shannon Scott, and his keen wit and delivery of this two plus hour journey back in time. Mesmerizing, thrilling, poignant are just some... More

This was the best tour we took in Savannah! Shannon knows everything about the symbolism, history, families in the Cemetery and Savannah. His stories brought tears to my eyes (Gracie). You can tell he has done his research and that he cares about the people and history of the cemetery. Very interesting and informative!

If you do anything at all on a trip to Savannah, book Bonaventure Cemetery Journeys with Shannon Scott. This experience was the absolute best and worth every penny. Shannon possesses a passion for history and is a master of his craft, which is providing fact- based information, enriching background, and a lot of personal involvement with some of Savannahs "personalities".

We booked our Bonaventure Cemetary tour with Shannon Scott based on the rave reviews given by friends on their trip. We were so excited for this tour with Shannon but upon arrival at the Cemetary we learned that it was his day off and our guide was Alyssa(I think that was her name). No where on the booking website, tickets... More

Thank you Alison for your positive and candid review and appreciate the fairness and honesty. I simply wanted to follow up by saying that on the tour description of our purchase page? There is a longer More Information description where at the top of that paragraph, in large bold lettering, it mentions the other tour guides on tap that typically... More

If you visit Savannah, you MUST go see Bonaventure Cemetery with the charismatic historian, Shannon Scott. Only he can lead you down the cryptic paths and stories of one of the most ethereal cemeteries in the world. We found ourselves on a physical journey that also included a metaphysical odyssey. Shannon's narrative was filled with engrossing legends and fascinating facts... More

This cemetery is fascinating and would have loved to spend more time for further self exploration. We took UBER to get there and fare wasn't more than $20.

Shannon Scotts after hour tour of Bonaventure Cemetary was beyond our expectations. Shannon is a superb storyteller and his attention to detail and knowledge of his subjects and Savannah is remarkable. Can't recommend him enough - you will not be disappointed.
