This mansion was on our visit list as its the movie set for the mahjong scene in Crazy Rich Asians. Loved the guided tour! It was informative, with many interesting back stories and photographs accompanying around the house. Shoutout to the guide (clement?), his explanation and story telling was superbb!

Booked 2pm slot on the same day. Uncle at ticketing booth welcomed everyone who came to collect the entrance sticker with a big smile. Guide Julia was punctual, friendly & was giving clear explanation of Cheong Fatt Tze, his family, the mansion & restoration. Tour took more than 45 minutes which I love. After the guided tour ended, we were allowed to still go back to every room & view everything slowly on our own. That's the time to also take some photos. Tour was mainly in the main courtyard area only, the rest was closed for the privacy of hotel guests. Recommended if you would like to know the story of this man & his grand mansion.
Lovely day, great tour guide

Visited in 2019, forgot to leave a review until now. Best part was the tour guide, I can't quite remember her name but she was a middle aged woman who spoke with great passion about the mansion and very good English. I really do hope she is still working there as I would love to take a tour from her again. The house was so beautiful and it really impacted my 14 year old self.
Incredibile guided tour

What a treat to be guided by the owner of this incredible mansion on a Friday morning - she delighted us with her passion, anecdotes, and deep knowledge of the site, it’s history and conservation (led by her and her husband). Highly recommend! Thank you

Excellent. The tour was worthwhile not only from an historical perspective, but because it highlighted the importance of restoring and preserving buildings of such value. The tour guide was most informative and the restoration of the house reflected the Chinese style of the 1800s. A touch of British ornamentation added to the finishing touches of this ‘grand old mansion’ The tour is a must see for peeps who are interested in history and the preservation of it.
