Not Enough

The tour was ok, but I wish we were shown a bit more in terms of famous people’s gravesites instead of spending almost 40 minutes out of two hours at the very first gravesite (the Lawtons, very beautiful and very famous, but the presentation could be condensed into about 15 minutes).

Susannah was the best! She shared a wealth of history, architecture, and art within the cemetery tour. She was funny, intelligent, and made the tour a great experience, kept us all interested! Would definitely take this tour again and recommend friends and family.

Bonaventure Cemetery Walking Tour

Shannon was EXCELLENT! My parents were visiting from Oklahoma (75 years old) and my husband and I (56 years old). The two hour tour was so interesting and Shannon provided many unique stories combined with history of the cemetery. We truly had a wonderful overview of so many families buried at Bonaventure. One cannot appreciate Bonaventure by walking in the cemetery alone. We talked throughout the rest of the trip about the different people Shannon described and the impact their lives had on so many others. You cannot appreciate the historical facts by simply viewing a tombstone. I'm still thinking of little Gracie and the Captain who chained himself to the wheel of his ship. Wow!

A treasure

Our guide Suzanne communicated directions very well. She is passionate about the history of Bonaventure; what I would call delightfully nerdy! It was beastly hot the morning of our tour but she was purposeful to guide us into shady areas. Her knowledge was great and she communicated clearly and with humor. Bonaventure is a treasure of Savannah, beautiful and rich in history of the city. Highly recommend!

Shannon Scott the amazing tour guide

Shannon Scott the tour guide was an excellent guide for us. He is very knowledgeable, his voice sounds like a musical star. He took us to the world of dead where we never knew before. Me and my colleagues joined and we all wowed for his tour. Highly recommended. He is very thoughtful and well prepared. For sudden rain he’s got umbrellas, for bug bites he was like here you go...anti bug spray, for heat he had some fans. He was like a magician or male version of Mary Poppins! We had an amazing time with Shannon and we all can’t wait to come back to Savannah for his another tour. Thanks Shannon for giving us wonderful experience. We really enjoyed your tour, your passion.
