Perhaps it's exaggeration to say Louisa May Alcott's house changed my life, but it did make a huge impact. I've always kind of liked her and her books, but after having a great tour guide who told us about her life, her works, and her family home I was inspired by this strong, independent, creative woman. The house is well... 更多
As with all such tours, your experience will be hit or miss depending on the guide. Our guide was an older woman who clearly loved Louisa May Alcott (she visited the house many times as a child) but she did not do a good job of presenting her wealth of information in any compelling way.

This is a very interesting and worthwhile tourist stop. It's enjoyable for any history or literary buff. The only reason I don't give it full marks is the tour guide and my fellow tourists were less than exciting. But I am definitely glad I went.

This was by far one of the best historical house tours I have ever taken! The furnishings are mostly original and our guide was able to answer every question, which I find very rare.

A well preserved piece of American literary history. Great value and informative experience. Staffed by passionate and well informed people.
The tour was fascinating. The majority of the furnishings are original to the family. This is not just for girls. I think that for anyone who has read the book, the house will seem familiar.
I was a bit concerned that I would not enjoy visiting because i'm not a huge fan of Louisa May Alcott, BUT was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the tour. I learned a lot about this fascinating family! I was especially thrilled to see the painting by May that hung in the Paris Salon Exhibit!! The tour guide... 更多
