We bought tickets which are good for the Breakers + one of the Elms, Rosecliff, Marble House, etc. and we eventually went to the Breaker and Marble House. A self guided tour with a headset is included in the ticket which I think is the key to the enjoyment of the tour.
There every tourist uses the self guided tour so every one follows the same route. It is also because every one listens to the headset which tremendously decreases overall noise level. I enjoyed the tour so much because the quality of the audio guide was good, which makes tourist listen attentively, and you learn the history much better.
The mansion is very well maintained, and I was a little surprised why it is not more well-known and popular. It shows the history of how one of the wealthiest family in history and their background. I would even compare it to some of the palaces which are world-class tourist destination. To be frank, this is the one I enjoy the most.
If you are going to visit the Breakers and the other mansions, I would recommend visiting the Breakers last, as it is the largest of all and visiting it last gives you better expectation. They also have parking lots for the Breakers and Marble House, which is right across the street.
