Best Bonaventure Cemetery Tour!
, Nov 2020
This was a long tour but you'd hardly know it because Shannon was a great storyteller. He kept our group engaged with interesting tidbits of Savannah's history and the Bonaventure Cemetery. I would definitely take another tour with Shannon. The Bonaventure Cemetery is beautiful and you will learn about the famous people buried there like Johnny Mercer and Gracie Watson among others. You will learn how amazing J. Walz was in sculpting the monuments and you will recognize his work as you walk through the Cemetery. I highly recommend this tour!!

I’ve been fortunate to travel the world and Shannon could be top 5 tour guides I’ve ever encountered. While he might dress like Johnny Cash or the Grim Reaper, Shannon is a walking history book and a heck of a lot of fun! 6 ⭐️
What a tour should be!

Excellent tour! Shannon was an amazing guide....very knowledgeable and friendly. So much there to see/learn but would have missed a lot of the detail & symbolism without his fact-packed presentation. Would definitely do this again!
Great fun and experience a must do

Susannah was a great tour guide, what a wealth of knowledge and really made it interesting. She broke the tour down not only historically but artistically as well. Would highly recommend this tour and try to get her for your guide
Great tour!

Suzanne was an awesome tour guide. She’s very knowledgeable and she loves history! The tour was not rushed, she spoke loud and clear and answered all our questions. Great two hour tour!
A Cemetery to remember
, Nov 2020
Our guide was excellent she knew so much about Savannah’s history and Victorian era. She knew every inch of the cemetery and did a great job telling its stories in a captivating way. Despite some rain she powered on and kept us engaged the whole time. The best tour my husband and I went on in Savannah. The size of the tour with no more than 8 people was perfect and the Freemason stories incredible
History lovers dream tour
