I absolutely loved Oakleigh! We were lucky enough to take our tour with the manager, and she knew so much about the place. I'll admit I was kind of apprehensive when I got there because the outside is in some desperate need of renovations, but I'm so glad we decided to take the tour anyways.

Very knowledgeable tour guides. A bit too wordy. Tour was basically a Mobile history lesson with a very old home as a backdrop. Worth going once. The neighborhood was beautiful.

We took our 3 and 5 yr old, we thought they would be running or bored. They totally behaved because it was entertaining! A lot of good information, truly knowledgeable tour guide.
