My fiancee and I toured the home last week with our three children. Our guide, Mari, was very knowledge about the home as well as history in general. She even managed to keep our kids interested and entertained, which is not an easy thing to do. The home is beautiful, and the a/c is cold. We enjoyed the tour very... More

Being a native of Savannah, I consider the Sorrel Weed House to be a hidden treasure. The estate is the original house, including the authentic building structure. The estate is right in the heart of downtown Savannah around one of the best squares of the city. Anyone who visits Savannah, must include this site as one on your “must see”... More

Just did the ghost tour. Not really into haunted history but I decided to do ghost tour anyway. It was a lot of fun. We were told the history of the house and the family and then had a chance to play with EMF detectors. NIck was great... Never done that before so it was interesting. Got some strange photos...

This could have been a really cool tour. The house is incredible and has a great history, but the tour size (30) and the two dogs that were welcomed in one tour were too much to get the creepy aura of the paranormal.

We just left the Sorrel Weed house. The tour guide was very dull and awkward. House was literally falling apart. The "owner/investor" should really put some money into the place. A total waste of about an hour and $9. Skip this one.

Hi, I apologize that you did not enjoy our day tour, and if you call with your reservation name we will be happy to refund your money. I am however concerned that you have us confused with some other activity you did. The house is completely renovated and furnished with period antiques and we do not offer any tour for... More

The tour guide was awesome, overall experience was pretty good, however I was not impressed with the house in general. Yes, it has a ton history involved, but the majority of it was under construction. We got to see the first floor and part of the basement and the carriage house, nothing else.

While we appreciate your nice comments on our tour guides, I would like to ask which part of the house it is that you are referring to that is under renovation? We are not renovating anything except repainting the back porches and porch railing work which is normal maintenance. The first floor is 100 percent renovated and furnished with period... More

House was really interesting with tons of history and mysteries. Tour guide was fairly knowledgeable but not too impressed overall. House was under renovations and we only got to see a few rooms on main floor and the basement.

Wife wanted to do the ghost and walking tour, so we did. First 15 minutes is spent watching videos of the tv show clips. EMF meters are given to participants as you are guided around the house and carriage house. Guide was knowledgeable. All the people taking pictures with flashes in the dark is annoying. After house tour, we were... More
