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.

This was a lovely house, and beautifully maintained and restored. I was mostly impressed and enchanted with the neighborhood and history of the surrounding homes. I toured this place with my (large) family, and I need to give a shout out to the staff at this place for handling this group very well.
