I was hesitant about a haunted tour but had a great time. Kelsey was very informative and I found the history of the home very interesting.

Visited this old home over Easter weekend...tour guide was very knowledgeable and took the time to give us a good amount of history on the home and the slave quarters. It was only the 2 of us so we really were able to have a personalized tour which was great. Very interesting history~ parts were sad such as the fingerprints of the slaves in the original brick. Mr. Sorrell's bi polar wife is said to have committed suicide and jumped from her bedroom balcony. He was purportedly having an affair with one of the slaves and she caught him. The house was really really musty, so my allergies were in full force and I could barely complete the tour. We only saw the main floors and the slave quarters as the upstairs was closed. Kind of disappointing...The tour was kind of short as we could not see the whole home but for the money, it was worth it. I didn't feel any paranormal activity or presence personally but the house is said to be one of the most haunted in Savannah. I would recommend it if you have an hour or so.

This was an excellent experience! We did the 9:30pm House and Walking Tour, and it was great! Jovi was our tour guide, and he made all the difference! He was knowledgeable and charismatic. He knew all of the stories, and we could tell that he really enjoys what he does. We learned about the different spirits that haunt the different areas of the property. Thanks for a great night!
