Myself and two other friends took the late very last tour of the night. We took a tour of the beautiful house, the carriage house and we also got to do a walking tour around the city a bit. We wanted to go at night so we could get the full ghostly adventure affects. I really loved our tour guide.... More

The City of Savannah should be ashamed to promote the Sorrel Weed house as a place to visit. We paid $10 each to see 3 rooms, the first floor and a very small, unkempt courtyard. All of them were dirty, unfinished and although we were reassured by the guide that work was going on to renovate the house to its... More

Interesting facts about the house, but not a great deal to see. House has been used for all kinds of things: residence, hospital, mercantiles, apartments and now museum in progress. Tour was by one of the architects currently working on restoration. Interesting stories about the house. AND the good thing, it's being restored and all the admission money goes toward... More

Beautiful home with a fascinating history. We were allowed to take pictures inside, which is unusual for tours. The tour guide was enthusiastic and knew her stuff. The only downside was that the upstairs was closed. I hope we can come back later when that part of the home is open for touring.

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...
