Our purpose is to educate the public on the rich neoclassical Greek Revival architecture of the Sorrel- Weed House and the the famous architect Charles Cluskey who designed it, along with and the cultural history of antebellum Savannah Georgia.

I gave it 1 star because 0 was unavailable. We paid for the 2 hour tour, 1 hour at the house and the other a walking tour. We actually left the walking tour after about 20 minutes because it was soooooo boring. The walking tour started with about 20 people and we left it, it had about 6 left. They... More

There is so much history and this house is a must see. We stopped here during our ghost tour at night and we also saw it during the day. I would recommend seeing this house during your visit to Savanah.

My husband and I went on this tour at the last minute. We just happened to be walking by the ticket booth outside the house. The house was not particularly scary, even in the dark. The stories we were told on the walking tour had interesting information, but it does not match up with history books and Wikipedia.

This was an exciting adventure. We learned the history of the house, which was interesting, as well as the experiences told by those who have been there. We got to use electromagnetic ghost detector things, which was exciting. Mine showed more lights near the rafter in the bedroom of the chambermaid who was found hung in the carriage house.

We did the evening ghost tour of this house and it was cool - you watch the Ghost Hunters episode in the house and then you get EMF devices to explore with. There are about 30 people on the tour with you so it felt really crowded and lost that "creepiness" factor but the stories were interesting. The group that... More

This house interested me since our last visit to Savannah in October of 2015. We visited this past weekend and actually got to go inside and tour the house. The main reason why this was my favorite part of the trip was because this tour is dog friendly! The tour guide gave our dog treats and constantly loved on her!... More

We went on the evening paranormal version of this tour. It started out with a viewing of clips from paranormal tv shows that had been filmed at the house and then we moved on to a tour of the house. We were told the history of the land, the house, as well as the previous owners. Tales of ghostly encounters... More

We paid $10 per person to tour this house. Do not waste your money! Our tour guide looked like she just crawled out of bed and didn't seem to be able to answer most questions that people asked. We only got to see a couple of rooms on the first floor, then part of the basement and the carriage house.... More

We stopped by the Sorrel Weed house on our way out of town and were not disappointed. Our guide Mari was informative & entertaining. The history of the house and the changes it has undergone over the years was very interesting. The bottom floor of the house has been beautifully restored. It is still undergoing restoration on the upper floors... More
