We booked a tour having read about it in the Rough Guide and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It's not the easiest place in Singapore to find as it's a bit out of the way and even the taxi drivers don't seem to have heard of it, but once there it's time well spent.
Tours are by appointment only and are at different times each day, which could be a problem, however looking on the bright side that means that you have a choice of morning, afternoon or early evening. Our guide was first class and was able to answer all our questions and the house itself was beautifully presented.
A possible improvement? - we would have liked to have been able to buy a booklet containing photographs (photography inside the Baba House is forbidden) and at least some of the information our guide gave us. As it is we remember bits and pieces of the history of the house but I know from bitter experience that in 12 months time my memories will be distressingly vague!
