When I saw this house on my trolley tour I knew it was the one thing that I had to see before I left Savannah. The first thing I noticed after I bought my ticket and was waiting for the tour was how unkempt the grounds were. There was some trash laying around and random bricks everywhere. The exterior of...

We shelled out almost seventy dollars for a house tour and walking tour on our recent trip to Savannah. We took the 8:00 tour with about 16 people, way too many to truly enjoy the experience. The house tour was really good story telling but not much more then that. The walking tour was a complete waste. The guide Boyce... More

We love visiting haunted houses, the is one of the best. Take both the house and walking tour. The house is gorgeous, and there is a presence, no doubt.

don't expect to see ghost. but do expect to hear amazing stories and fascinating history. the house is absolutely beautiful. but it does have a creepy vibe to it.

You can skip this. It was the most expensive house tour I took in Savannah ($10 student rate) and the least interesting. My guide was shabbily dressed and bumbled over his words. The tour stood in stark contrast to Mercer House, the only other one I had taken at that point. This will be a cool house if the owner... More

I paid $20 for the ghost tour. It was a spur of the moment thing - I happened across it while out for a walk. I'm not a big ghost person. Anyway, the tour consisted of walking around in poorly lit, run-down rooms in the old house. They hand you these "Electro Magnetic Field" detectors that are supposed to detect... More

Ok it is advertised as being on HGTV, etc, so we figured it would be a good place to try. The place is not maintained at all. Seems they are trying to get what they can out of it without putting anything into it. The guide tried to create an atmosphere of anticipation and heighten the anxiety level, but did... More

I took a picture in the basement "Voodoo" room where the slaves were suppose to be and when it was developed, there's a full blown picture of Matilda Sorrel and two children in it, plus a white aura light around the fireplace. In the other room are ghost orbs. See the pictures attached. I didn't know about the ghost picture... More

I think it's hilarious they can charge to walk people around a condemned basement with no electricity and no bathroom. My boyfriend and i made it fun because we made fun of things. Tour guide was a female and was enthusiast but the tour is still a yawn. She hypes up everything ...like that the lights on the stairs light... More

I have always dreamed of doing an actual ghost hunting tour with the devices to use...well I finally got that chance at this tour. Plus, TAPS aka Ghosthunters had been here back in 2005 and had found somethings as well. I did not have an encounter...but I did get a few little light ups on my detector...but they went away...
