Our guide was very fun and animated full of facts and anecdotal stories. I think there is a Travelzoo or Groupon for this so look for it to save some $$'s. Its about 40min to the falls if you are coming from the east. Be sure to write your name on the piano outside, bring a permanent marker. Tour runs... More

Cost : 12.50 plus tax. If you are military you can get $1.00 off. You go in tours of apprx 25 people. You do need to be able to walk and go up and down stairs. You probably wouldn't want to take a stroller. With that being said. The guide "pete" was wonderful with a touch of humor. You start... More

Guide was knowledgeable but moved quickly (there were other seniors in the group). Found out a man names HOLLY set up a factory on the banks... More

We took our grandchildren (ages 4 and 7) to visit the Lockport Caves on a Sunday afternoon while they were visiting from out-of-state. We were very surprised that this attraction was so busy. We did not reserve tickets on-line, and ended up waiting 45 minutes for our tour. There were 28 persons in our group, and the group following ours... More

This inexpensive, guided tour was awesome. Its something I've never seen before. Our tour guide was very informative and lasted 70mins. The boat ride at the end was fun, but short. You won't regret seeing this cave! It would be fun for all ages.

This is a nice place to go and fill time during your vacation. Being from Illinois, this wouldn't be a primary destination for a vacation, but it was an interesting and educational stop. I was surprised to learn that my kids hadn't been taught anything in school about the Erie Canal. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining about... More

We were a bit confused when we booked - we thought we'd be riding ON the Eerie Canal, but the tour did not disappoint. It was informative, educational and not your usual cave tour. The price makes it affordable for families. Would definitely recommend. We were fortunate to catch a boat going through the canal locks just as we finished... More

We went on a dreary morning and there were about 8 people in our tour group, as well as a knowledgeable guide. Starts with a walk down to the locks, then a walk along the mule path, guide threw interesting facts and historical info in all along. It was fascinating. Then you go up a wide pipe with stairs to...
