I stayed for one night with my cousin and Aunt in a 2 bedroom suite. It was a lovely evening for a tour of the house and to hear the history of what happened there! I would definately recommend a stay there for anyone who lvoes murder mysteries.

As a native of Fall River the Lizzie Borden story was something that was just a part of local history. Moved away in the 70's and never took the tour. We went Monday. I highly recommend it. It was very interesting and delightfully creepy. I admit...I would not spend an overnight in the house..TO CREEPY for me. The tour is... More

We toured the home mid week and our guide Daniel had the exact mix of humor and history to make this a very enjoyable experience. She brought to light many facets of the murders and the family life of the Bordens that have become more legend than fact. Worth the time and money

This was a great tour! The Borden murders were considered the crime of that century and you will hear about the story from beginning to end. The stage of the tour gets set when you buy the tickets; while we waited for the tour to begin, we were shown eerie photos other tourists had supposedly taken showing paranormal activity. The...

My boyfriend and I toured the house along with eight other morbidly curious folks. Our guide was Richard Bertoldo, who did an excellent job of taking us back in time to describe the community and the family relationships at the time of the famous murders. Using authentic photos and documents, he brought the past alive as we walked through the... More

The tour of the Lizzie Borden house was the pleasant surprise of our trip. The nearly hour-long tour kept my 8-year-old entertained, and he's still talking about the experience more than a month later. I worried that this type of tour wouldn't keep him engaged, but he loved it. I would take the tour again, because there was so much... More

Took the tour on Aug 24. Our tour guide Richard was great took the time to explain things in detail and even asked for volunteers to play the late Mrs.Borden so the group could get a realistic view of the discovery of her body by the maid. I posed as the body following the crime scene photo made it a... More

Original location of the Lizzie Borden murders. Tour is about 50 minutes long and the tour guide was knowledgeable, personable, and interesting... covered the main floor and upstairs, including the "scene of the crime" rooms. Even with a full group, there's good opportunity to get photos. Learning the complete story of the murders in the original location is simply awesome.... More

I booked this tour for me, my husband, and our two kids, aged 12 and 16. I have been interested in the Borden story since seeing the TV movie about it starring Elizabeth Montgomery in the 1970s. Our tour guide did a great job of explaining what life would have been like for Lizzie and her sister, Emma. We also... More

My niece and I had the fantastic good fortune to snag a private tour of the Lizzie Borden House, since nobody else showed up! Our guide was Rick, and he was brilliant. Great storyteller, and when he noticed our interest in ghost hunting he brought out some of their spookiest photographic evidence of the House's ghosts and shared his own... More
