Shannon's tour was absolutely fascinating! I learned the background stories of prominent families in Georgia and some "buried" secrets of the cemetery. I have taken many tours as a recent transplant from Boston and can say this was the best! You can tell that Shannon has made the discoveries of this sacred place to be his life's work. Tour is...

Loved it will do again and I will asked for Shannon to be my guide, he did a excelent job 5* I would recommend the tour to all my family and friends. Next time I would like to take a late night tour of the cemetery. Shannon bought the past back to life just for a few hours. Not really... More

I am now completely spoiled for any tour of this nature, as they will undoubtedly not compare to the quality of this one. The history was incredibly presented by a true entertainer and professional. I'm so happy we chose this tour. It was enjoyed by our entire party. Shannon Scott has an amazing voice and presence, only matched by his... More

Great tour! Shannon was fantastic weaving the stories of Bonaventure with the history of Savannah. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute and can't believe it was 2+ hours! Time flew and I could have listened to his stories all day long. I've been on another company tour prior to this one and there was no comparison. Don't miss Shannon's tour, it's the... More

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

Shannon is a gifted story teller! He was extremely knowledgeable and wove a magical spell with characters long dead but resurrected through his stories! A MUST DO tour. Msbennett515@gmail.com

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...

Thank you both for the generous review and really made my week to wake up this morning and be blessed with such kind, and yet helpful words! You made some great points and glad to know that my original mission statement of sharing surprising things and keeping Bonaventure & Savannah's energy infectious is still on point! Appreciate it!

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
