Just left the 2 pm tour. Live locally and decided to do the tour for my birthday. My husband and I showed up early to purchase tickets and souvenirs. The lovely Robin was our shopkeeper/tour guide. She made the tour enjoyable and was very knowledgeable. She even let me play Mrs.Borden's dead body lol. Tour lasted an hour and was... More

My wife and I took the tour because we read previous good reviews. We were not disappointed! Our tour guide was Robin and she was great. The tour lasted right at an hour and was both entertaining and informative. I would definitely recommend this tour. By the way, we arrived about 45 minutes before the next tour but there were...

Stopped here on our way back to Pittsburgh from Salem MA. Was a little out of our way, but worth it. Tours are on the hour but since they were busy and had enough people they added a tour on the 1/2 hr. The guide was very informative and the house is beautiful. Take your pictures as you go thru...

I've been fascinated by the Lizzie Borden story forever. Read a lot, saw the Elizabeth Montgomery movie, and saw a play by the Delvina Theater Group. Even know someone who is a relative of Lizzie. Finally made the trip to Fall River. The man selling tickets gave us some background info and showed us interesting photos while we waited for... More

This was a fun attraction! The guide was very knowledgable about both the history and the paranormal part of the home. We really enjoyed the tour. You are allowed to take pics in the house and they provide you with additional information to visit the home Lizzy Borden moved to after the scandal and the cemetery. All very close by... More

We had a great tour of the house even though poor Richard was suffering from laryngitis. He was very informative and kept us in stitches the whole time. The history of the house is very interesting, especially the way it is portrayed through the tour. You will definitely rethink as to what might have happened if you take this tour.... More

Took the tour today. very well done. the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the entire Borden family. Came away completely convinced that Lizzie did it although the guide let you make up your own mind.

Our tour guide Robin was so nice and informative. I thought I knew the story and she told me things I had no idea about! The house was great. Many small details to look at . I think I may try to stay overnight next time so I can get involved in the paranormal discussion/tour they do! I don't think... More

Have known about Lizzie and have wanted to visit for many years. Well, we finally did. It didn't disappoint. The staff is very knowledgable of the history involved in the house. They let you form your own opinions of what happened that fateful day. Its a fascinating house with its many doorways, and stair cases. I found it just a... More
