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.

The tour was very informative and easy to listen to. The group was small which made the tour all the better. I left with a better understanding of the area which was the purpose. Thank you!

We had about 30 people that had a very enjoyable 3 hours of information sharing and enjoyment. Shannon Scott did an outstanding job explaining much of the stories and lore associated with the Savannah area and particularly the beautiful cemetery. I look forward to participating in more of Shannon's programs and tours around Savannah

A friend recommended this tour. She said it was a must do when visiting Savannah! I would agree! Shannon knows his stuff. He keeps you interested the whole 2.5 hours that the tour lasted. I left struggling to keep everything he shared straight in my mind. If I had one tip to give future visitors, I'd say take paper and... More
