I was so excited about visiting the Lizzie Borden house but unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations. Our start time was 12pm but we didn't get started on time because our tour guide was in the parking lot smoking a cigarette so we got started about 10-15 minutes late. I wish I could remember her name but... More

Being a paranormal investigator, going to the Lizzie Borden house was a dream. We took the tour with Rick who was phenomenal! He was very informative, and funny. After the tour, we were convinced to go back and do an investigation. Great time had by all!

My wife and I live in the area and we decided to take her sister and friend from Vermont to visit. Kathleen, our tour guide was pleasant and very knowledgeable with regard to the details surrounding the murders, legal proceedings, and the history of the house itself. We were allowed to photograph (but not video) the interior of the house!... More

Micah was our tour guide. She was dressed as Bridget and was quite knowledgeable about the house and the Bordens. The house was fully restored and was bigger than I imagined. If you have any interest in Lizzie Borden this is a must see! Micah was awesome! She stated the facts but let you make your own conclusions.

This tour is awesome. I always thought I knew the story but our tour guide proved me wrong. She was entertaining, knowledgeable, patient, well spoken and thought provoking. Even my 6 year old grand daughter enjoyed this tour and learned things!

Whilst visiting my friend in my childhood friend Canada we decided to satisfy our passion for ghosts and the unknown by planning areas trip to the states and booking a night at Lizzie's We definitely were not disappointed as not only was the house itself like a step back in time but the staff were fantastic too. Our guide was... More

My husband and I went on the house tour. I was a little apprehensive but it turned out great. Nick was our guide and he was awesome! We learned a lot of new facts. Trying to build up the courage to stay overnight.

I arrived after they had already stopped giving tours for the day but they still have me a tour as it was my only day in Fall River. The tour was very interesting with lots of details about the family and the trial. Very interesting to see the exact spots where the bodies were found and to learn the story.... More

My family and I visited the Lizzie Borden house and received a tour with Richard. He was very nice and knowledgeable on the history. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone and if Richard is your guide you won't be disappointed.
