The first time we drove, they were closing up so we couldn't drive any further than the entry so make sure you are aware of the hours of operation. The only other opportunity we had to visit it was raining but at least they were open. I don't know if it was because it was raining, but there was no... More

For me the greatest attraction was the grove of 300-400 live oak trees that create a beautiful canopy along a road about a mile long. It was beautiful and great for photos. I have not seen anything as extensive as this grove. It was also very breezy walking around and looking at the ruins of the old plantation. The different... More

The site and history of Wormsloe is really interesting. The main point of your visit will be the long entrancee of canopied live oak trees......amazingly beautiful! This is what you picture a true southern plantation entrance. The only thing missing is the magnificent old plantation home. At Wormsloe the one home is a private residence and the original old Tabby... More

Visited here in Dec 2014. The tree lined lane was neat and we had a nice walk around the property. The film was somewhat informative. All enjoyable but seemed pricey at $10 a head.

Very cool place. It was nice we didn't have to go with a tour guide. We were able to just chill and check everything out at our own pace. It was only like twenty bucks. All good

The moment we pulled in I was shocked by the beauty of the Oak lined driveway which is very long. It took my breath away. That alone was worth $10. You can't do much for ten bucks anymore. There's no plantation it's just the ruins of part of the security area around the house. The trails you walk around on... More

If your into Plantations and the history of Savannah, then take this tour. Before you take the ride, you get to see a short movie first. Our guide was very informed and the tour lasted about an hour.

Yes, you have to pay to get in, but after the fairytale drive, you will experience peach as serenity. After. A long busy work season, this was just what I needed. Beautiful scenery, nature, and peace and quiet. Go on the off season in the morning, I'm the only one here so no kids or other visitors. You can't beat... More

What a beautiful entrance!! The 3 mile long driveway lines by its Live-oak Trees with the Spanish Moss hanging, so picturesque. The driveway is walkable but a car park is available at the other end. Nice self guided walking tour around the ruins and the low lands. We all enjoyed the photo ops!
