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

I was quite surprised on how much I enjoyed this tour. My husband and I did the ghost tour and walk at Sorrel Weed. We are not the ghost hunting type but thought it might be fun since Savannah is the most haunted city in the country. Our guide was awesome!!! I wish I could remember his name. He provide... More

I have toured many homes and this was disappointing. The guide, Don, seemed distracted and not quite sure of himself. Although there were some interesting aspects to the architecture it was not a great attempt at restoration.

I should have read these reviews BEFORE spending $24 for my husband and I to take this "tour". If you are expecting to see a restored period home, complete with authentic, restored furnishings, and be toured by a lively guide, turn around and go somewhere else. What I saw was a home in the early stages of restoration, furniture that... More
