Excellent tour
, Oct 2019
My wife and I were very happy we picked Shannon Scott for our tour. Shannon gave us a tremendous amount of information, and managed to do that in an entertaining way. Without this tour we never would have understood the symbolism incorporated into the gravestones and other cemetery features, and never would have found so many interesting family plots. Overall highly recommended!
Worth your time!

Thoroughly enjoyed our Bonaventure Cemetery tour with Jessica. She was a great story teller and she was able to draw from her artistic background to further enhance her content. I loved hearing about the history of Savannah and seeing the beauty of the grounds and the exquisite statues.

Great Guide. Well Worth Seeing.

Our guide was entertaining and informative. For those, like myself, who hate being overrun by fellow tourists, this is a great tour. The cemetery itself has a real aura of peacefulness.
Response from Host , Jul 2019
Many thanks for sharing your impressions and glad that you enjoyed yourselves. Even when Bonaventure is busy, it tends to spacially give room for groups to feel at times if they're the only ones out there!

I have visited before and had Shannon..I was thrilled to go with my sister yesterday for the 10am...we didn’t have Shannon, but our guide did a fantastic job!!
Response from Host , Jul 2019
This is Shannon and permit me to say I'm sorry to have missed you this round but appreciate your all around compliment to myself and my guide, Jessica. She's a professional librarian with heavy interest in The Victorian Age and will soon be conducting our Women's History tour in Laurel Grove Cemetery so hope to have you back for that as well!
