We decided to visit this house as our previous tour guide had recommended it and we were interested in the history of this family after hearing some background information. After purchasing our expensive tickets, we were asked to move into the library to join the group. Upon entering, we were made to feel unwelcome by the tour guide as she... More

I visited this place expecting an exciting and interesting tour of this house. Instead, I was greeted by an unfriendly guide who made it obvious that we were causing her a hassle due to joining the group late even though we had been pulled into this attraction from somebody who was standing outside the house. The inside was a disgrace... More

We visited during a day tour, we found out so much about the guests that had stayed there, the parties that they had, and the tragedies of the families that resided there. There is so much history to soak in during a trip to Savannah, and this was history that I really enjoyed. The tour guide was great!!

Expensive tour, guide was defensive and abrupt, house was derelict and unrestored. Only 3 rooms visited. We were told to come inside by the ticketing officer outside the house, only to be made very unwelcome by the abrupt tour guide who continually throughout the tour told we were late. Only saw 3 rooms and a basement (with nothing in) which... More

My fiance and I booked this tour wanting to visit the spooky cursed house! The tour guide was great and we learned alot. It was amazing to stand in the same house as the great General Robert E Lee. Now the bad news. From start to finish the house and yard looked horrible. I understand keeping the original look but... More

Its a great house still actively undergoing restoration. Which means they let you sit in period furniture at period tables and take lots of pictures. Our tour guide took his time with the tour, answered all our questions and chatted on and on.

The only thing that 'spooked' us was the audacity of the people running this 'tour'. It was incredibly brief, the house poorly kept, 'renovations' badly done and the 'information' regarding the Sorrel family as put forth by our guide--seems largely untrue. After our tour, I did research and found the story told re: Mrs. Sorrel, the slave Molly & Mr.... More

Like others, we were disappointed. While walking past the Sorrel Weed House one hot afternoon we decided to take the tour especially since Ghost Hunters had been there. We didn't realize that they weren't going to talk about the haunting at all on the tour. The day tour focuses on history and architecture, which is fine, but I think they... More

We went on the paranormal tour of the Sorrel Weed House. The guilde was extremely knowledgeable about both the history of the home and the paranormal experiences that happen there. We learned about the family as well as got to do some ghost hunting. After we completed the tour of the house, we went on a ghost walk around the... More
