My husband and I are interested in the paranormal. When we heard of an evening historical haunted tour we knew we had to go! We went at the 8:30 tour and we're lucky to only have 2 other people in our party so it was very comfortable. The tour guide told us the history as well as different sightings in... More

Went on the night tour Halloween weekend. Actually wasn't too crowded...only about 8 people total. The house tour is about an hour long. It starts with a short video telling the history of the house and shows the Ghost Hunters findings. You can take all the pictures and video you want. The guide shows you other pictures that have been... More

I've been to every house museum in a 100 mile radius and I was very disappointed in this house. I'm a native Savannahian and we have much better to offer our visitors. $20 to see this house in a sad and dilapidated condition was exorbitant but hopefully the money will go towards sorely needed renovations. If you want to see... More

I took a tour of the Sorrel-Weed house during the day, and not the ghost tour at night. The only thing I found scary about the house was its dilapidated condition. The tour guide I had was very knowledgeable about the house and explained part of its tragic past -- two purported suicides occurred in this home. At one time... More

Of the three houses we toured, we found the Sorrel-Weed house to be the most 'intimate'. Not only were we allowed to take pictures, but the guide brought the past history and the recent history of the home together in a personal manner. The home doesn't look or feel like a museum, yet is a fine example of a structure... More

My husband and I have wanted to tour this house for ages but this was our first time ... There WILL be more!! Loved every moment. Our tour guide Christel was a pure delight. We did the day tour but I brought my Ghost Radar App. There was only one green blip in the operating room that said "above" but... More

Felt something weird two steps onto the grounds of this house and didn't shake it until I got back to my hotel. That house has had some bad, baaaad things happen inside its walls and compound. Loved the history of the house and it's family, and the information was great as well as the ability to see and explore. I... More

We paid for the ghost-house & walking tour, $28 per person. The house tour was so boring we left and didn't take the walking tour. First we watched a video of Ghost Hunters' TV show; from when they had filmed in the house. I could have watch that at home. We then were taken into 3 rooms including the carriage... More

We visited the house on Sunday morning, 10/25/15. Our guide, Don, was extremely personable, knowledgeable, and willing to answer questions. I would definitely recommend this tour to someone visiting Savannah!
