THE SAVANNAH CEMETERIES EXPERIENCE
Founder and pioneer, Shannon Scott, has been giving tours in Savannah for 30+ years and has unequivocally shaped and defined the industry. A true artist who moved here to attend art school at a serendipitous, sublime hour when Savannah’s regrowth was quietly stirring, he unknowingly grew to love characters and places within his own life who would become the inspiration for his storytelling artistry. He is the reason Savannah was designated “America’s Most Haunted City” on behalf of the City of Savannah in 2002, and many other tour companies have modeled their work accordingly. Shannon was the first tour guide to offer daily tours in Bonaventure Cemetery, beginning in 2002 — followed by Laurel Grove Cemetery in 2012 — a noteworthy achievement compared to the bustling array of tour companies we see in the cemeteries today. Shannon Scott Tours is the only company offering exclusive “After Hours” tours in Bonaventure to this day. In 2010, he sold his original ghost tour company and expanded his platform to include the most diverse, authentic, and compelling experience for the enlightened sophisticate. Shannon Scott Tours will take you all over Savannah, the Lowcountry, and beyond! Of course, there is no better place to learn history than a cemetery, so cemeteries are our pride and joy! From public, private, and specialty tours, we offer it all! Check out our tour options below!
