Praise From Our Guests
“Absolutely wonderful! The tour was supposed to be 90 minutes but it was over 2 hours and full of interesting stories and information. We only touched on a small part of the cemetery but it was incredible to here of the famous, not so famous and the unknowns. Shannon has a very fluid way of storytelling and despite the fact it was incredibly hot and steamy, we couldn’t get enough!”
-Lee Y on Viator
“Me and two of my best friends went on this tour yesterday with Shannon Scott. It was one of the best tours I have ever been on. He was amazing with the amount of information that he knew and how he presented it. You get way more than you pay for. We all three definitely recommend this tour.”
-Nancy C on Viator
“Walking through the cemetery with Shannon was a 2 hour historical journey through the lives of Savannah’s former citizens. The stories were clearly researched with passion and desire for authenticity. Facts and humor blended together made for an interesting window into Savannah’s rich past. Would do the tour again, and would probably learn things I missed while looking around the haunting beautiful grounds.”
