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

We visited the Sorrel Weed House, it was $10 a person to tour the house. We were disappointed, we visited 4 rooms on the Parlor level and the basement. Some of these areas had been partially restored, the basement was not restored at all, in fact there was a bar in it. If and when the entire home is restored,... More

I probably should give this house a better rating, but I have been there two times over the course of several years and both times I had to leave the tour. We went for the ghost tour at night and I am fine as we enter the small garden and into the basement area. Once I start up the stairs... More

This really should be a 1 star review. I understand that they're trying to raise funds to renovate the house which I think is admirable, but the bulk of their funds come from the ghost tours and the reputation of being the most haunted house in Savannah. I will tell you that if you visit during the day, you'll see... More

The new owner of the Sorell-Weed Historic House has plans to renovate the entire house back to its original state. Our tour guide was a graduate of South Carolina School of Art and Design. She was extremely knowledgeable and a great story teller. Do listen carefully as she helps you to relive history.

Team Phasma took the ghost tour at 10:30 pm. Although it was hot and rather crowded, the tour guide was excellent. Her knowledge of the house and the reported paranormal activity was amazing. She was patient even with the less than respectful tourists. The tour gave us an opportunity to investigate a bit on our own. Also the tour guide... More
