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

Growing up 20 minutes from Fall River, I've always wanted to visit the site where Lizzie Bordon took an axe.....The tour was excellent! Historian or ghost hunter...it's a great tour, the guide was terrific, the house is authentic, the items are open and available to view.

Our tour guide was very knowledgable and engaging. She seemed to really be in to her job and believes that the house is haunted. I personally don't believe in ghosts and haunted places but I found the tour very interesting nonetheless. At one point during the tour we were allowed to take photos on couch that is in the spot...

Staying here has always been on my bucket list and I'm so glad we did! It was fantastic!! The staff was wonderful and the house was extremely clean. We got to explore the house and check out all of the Borden family memorabilia. Plenty of books are available, as well as movies you can watch to learn more about Lizzie... More

Great Tour!! Worth the trip. Gift shop had some funny items for sale. If you don't know who Lizzie Borden was, that's okay, you'll find out. Growing up we used to jump rope to the ditty, "Lizzie Boden took an axe, gave her mother 40 whacks, when she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41." I finally... More

This place is somewhere we just happened to stumble upon between boston and NYC. The tour was very enjoyable. I've been reading a lot about the Borden family in the few days since.
