Shannon was an excellent guide and a good story teller. Thanks. He mentioned several books during the tour and then texted them to me afterwards.

The tours was so worth the money. The cemetery was such a wonderful beautiful place to visit. I recommend the morning tour of the cemetery cause it in the shade and not hot.
Great tour!

Jessica was our guide and she was full of wonderful information. She has vast knowledge of Savannah history and the cemetery. Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed the tour and we will be back! Thank you.
A Tour to remember

This was an excellent experience and very memorable. Shannon was very well spoken and kept my family engaged throughout the entire tour. I would highly recommend visiting this historical site and using Shannon Scott as your guide. Thank you!!

Informative but cheesy. Our guide tried but I think she had other things on her mind. If I had to go again I would pick another tour. When they tour completed she said we are done. Head that way. Then we all got lost after walking forever. Loved the cemetery not the tour.

Beautiful cemetery - filled with history -and interesting stories. Shannon was an excellent tour guide and went above and beyond in making our tour special - on John Mercer’s birthday day! Will come back!

Our tour guide, Jessica was amazing. She works for Shannon and they do a lot of research on Bonaventure including contacting the plot family to find out the stories. As a trained librarian and artist, Jessica was very knowledgeable about the history of Savannah, Bonaventure, how cemetery plot worked and stories behind the sculptures. I don't remember the dates, but I remember the stories because they were fascinating and Jessica painted a clear picture for us. I'm glad the weather was cool and nice that we didn't need a bug spray. We ended up walking 2 hours stopping at many plots on a leisurely pace. Highly recommend this tour.

Our guide Jessica was a wonderful guide sharing her knowledge and love of this genuinely beautiful place. One was easily transported to the Victorian era where Jessica brought the history alive with her storytelling and her descriptions . Thanks Jessica!

Interesting, but no time management

Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting. Only minus was that she spent too much time telling us about a very few sites and ran over the scheduled 2 hour time by 45 minutes. Would have preferred to have shortened spiels about many more of the great sites in the cemetery.

Thank you and we appreciate opinions and feedback. :) Please consider roaming with us again!
Fascinating and beautiful

Great tour and so informative. Learned a lot while strolling through ancient live oaks and in many cases amazing statues/memorials. Highly recommend!
