The house is decorated in antiques similar to the furniture that was in the house at the time of the murders. I had wanted to do this tour for many years and when I finally got the... More

I had been dying *lol* to do this tour for years and I am so glad I was finally able to do it! Well worth the wait and the money. Lizzie Borden is a fascinating story and a very fundamental page in Fall River's history. The house where the murders occurred is now a Bed and Breakfast and the tour... More

We loved the Lizzie Borden House and would consider another stay in the future. The tour that is included for guests staying overnight is wonderful. Tour guide is extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. He listens to guests, allows questions and took his time with us. We explored every inch of that house. The house is very clean, breakfast was very good... More

This is by far the best tour that I have ever taken. Our tour guide, Richard, was well-informed on the history of the Borden family, the details of the murders of Abby and Andrew Borden, and the history of the house itself. There wasn't a moment that both myself and my husband were not captivated! We were both impressed by... More

Awesome tour and tour guide! The house gave me chills right when I when I entered! Thank you, Nick for the excellent tour! Also, he was very charming and adorable so I couldn't stop staring and listening. Too bad I didn't have a picture with him. 😭😳

We have visited our family here for some time now but never stopped in. All I can say is this visit to the house was great. Our tour guide Nick was most knowledgeable. He made the tour and experience like a story. You felt you were back in time and knew the characters. It was great! Thanks for a nice... More

Tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The house and furnishings are beautifully kept. The reproduced furniture in the house is incredibly close to the original furniture in the crime scene. Very impressive.
