Quite disappointed in the tour. Nice guide who knew his history but the house was filthy and not enough rooms open to tour. Definitely NOT worth the $$. Wish I had reviewed on Tripadvisor.

My friend and I went on our visit last February. Nice tour and our guide was very informative and really nice. Our experience was a little different then our fellow visitors. We exerienced weird feelings and odd occurances. It was cool but also a little freaky. If your sensative to ghost, this tour will give you suprises.

My husband and I just recently did the ghost tour. Since it was the off season we were the only two people there. Our tour guide was very informative and fun to explore with. It was especially fun that we got to spend time alone in the basement and slave quarters. Although we did not have any contact or see... More

We had a tour of the house and were told of the history. It was very informative but also sad. They claim the house is haunted by the mistress who threw herself off the second floor balcony after catching her husband with a slave. Worth the time. This also one of the stops on the Old Savannah Tours.

A most interesting tour with an excellent guide. When we went to the top floor with a chandelier over a small table, I saw, in my camera's display, an amethyst purple beam of light coming from the bottom of the chandelier going down to the floor. How wicked! Then in the basement they have 4 infrared cameras and monitors. They... More

Ok, let's be real for a second...I did NOT purchase my tickets for this event expecting to actually see a ghost...IF I would have seen one...bonus me...that being said...I thought the tour was actually kind of cool, for you at least get to go INSIDE the place and check it out...not to mention get a tour and find out the...

We first visited this place over 5 years ago. The first guide we had was awesome. Seemed to know the history of not only the house but Savannah. We toured the house and even walked down the street to the cemetery and back. The second time a couple years later was a whole different story. They played a cheesy TAPS... More

No, it is not a "slick" fully restored museum of a house, but the story and the process the house is experiencing is worth the money. The guide did state that the upper floors will no longer be accessible because of the building codes and the current lack of a fire escape. As one reviewer stated the home has items... More

We were taken throughout a few rooms in the house and then into the upstairs of the carriage house. I paid almost $60 for the experience (house and walking tour), which I would not do again nor would I recommend it. $10/pp would seem more appropriate. I feel like I fell for a tourist trap. There was nothing exceptional about... More

I love going to house museums, and what sets this one apart is that it is a work in progress. Often historic houses seem so slick and put together, but the Sorrel Weed House is a great example of a property that is working toward proper restoration. The $12 entrance fee goes directly to fixing up the house. It is... More
