I love touring old homes and thought this was very interesting. Our tour guide (Amanda?) was knowledgeable and very friendly. This house has scandal, suicide and murder! I wish you could see more of the house but it seems like they're doing renovations to it so maybe they will open up more as time goes on.

We went on the 9 p.m. Sorrel Weed House tour. The history of the home and ghostly stories were interesting. At first we were put in a room to watch clips from the Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures episodes that highlighted their experiences in the house. That could have been condensed a lot. Our guide was very good and gave... More

Our last night in Savannah we decided to do the ghost tour, mainly because it was rainy and the super moon and all that fun stuff. We did the walking tour where the guide takes you over to the Colonial Cemetery, the Mercer House, and then to the Sorrel Weed house. It really was a lot of fun! I'm not... More

We were interested in this tour because of the recent visit from Ghost Adventures. We were brought into a room, told to watch a video about the house, which was no more than "If Walls Could Talk" episode about the house. Interesting but not worth paying for. We were taken into a couple of rooms on the first floor by... More

We took the ghost tour of the home. We started watching a film in the carriage house and then got some time to tour the carriage house and small yard on our own. We then toured the bottom floor of the home with one back room. Several rooms seemed to be under remodel and one of the widows facing outside... More

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
