The Sorrel- Weed House operates Historic Savannah Tours and Haunted Ghost Tours in Savannah. Our purpose is to educate the public on the rich neoclassical Greek Revival architecture of the Sorrel- Weed House and the the famous architect Charles Cluskey who designed it, along with and the cultural history of antebellum Savannah Georgia.

We took the 10:00 p.m. ghost hunters tour and enjoyed the experience. Nick, our guide, was clearly a paranormal enthusiast and a student of the history of his city and this home. Nick is an exceptional storyteller and was very engaging and responsive. If you are a fan of paranormal programs on TV, this is a great tour for you!... More

My husband and I are huge fans of all things paranormal. We were so excited to do a ghost Investigation and they did not disappoint. There was a small group in our investigation and it was perfect. We got to use equipment that we only have seen on shows. Everything was live streamed so our friends could watch too! It... More

Love haunted and historic so this was a tour I was very interested in. The tour guide was a knowledgeable student of historic preservation and it added to the tour to gain that knowledge of the steps being taken to turn the house back into its original state. Maybe not the most influential historic spot in Savannah but wonderful to... More

Lovely old house with history but still in need of renovation. Entertaining guide who knew her history, not the most exciting house to visit but a pleasant hour

Our tour guide was great and the house boasts some interesting history. That said, the house is best known for being haunted, so it was a bit unexpected when she informed us that her tour would be very limited on that front and instead be about the history of the house itself. Her personality made up for it but it... More

I stumbled on the Sorrel Weed House during a trolley tour and so the next day, my husband and I took our 21 year-old niece, 17 year old nephew, 14-year-old daughter, and 11 year old son (was supposed to be a 12 and up tour--we lied). We did only the house tour at 9:30 at night--wanted to do the walking... More

My boyfriend & I went on the 10:00 with Nick & it was awesome. We both had a really good time & Nick was very informative & knew his history. He also made the tour entertaining. We loved that we were able to take pictures inside the house as well. I would definitely recommend this tour to others & would... More

Wesley was a great tour guide and obviously very enthusiastic about what he does. Took my 11 and 14 year old not really knowing what to expect. We did the house and walking ghost tour. We all thoroughly enjoyed it!
