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...

My wife and I had spent the afternoon in Niagara Falls, ON and made the quick 45 minute drive to Lockport Cave. It was certainly worth it to make the short trip over to Lockport for this tour - it was great. I've said a million times before, that any cave is interesting to me. But this cave had the... More

It was a hot day one of the days that almost hit 90. Our guide was great. He knew his history I was amassed at the ongoing work to preserve the history . The cave was great . Its hard to believe how this was all dug out. I would recommend it highly.

Found this attraction while in NY for a weekend. We have been to this area many times and didnt realize this attraction existed. Worth the trip. Very educational and quite interesting. The only downfall was there was a lot of walking however interesting history. I made it so can you. Just something different to do in a town in western... More

We went to the Lockport Cave and Underground Boat Ride tour. We got there right at 11:00, so the 11:00 tour was full, unfortunately. The woman at the ticket counter was very nice and gave us some things we could do to occupy ourselves for the hour. We basically walked around by the locks. There was an Erie Canal History... More

We were the only ones on the tour. Excellent one on one with tour guide. Guide extremely knowledgeable about history of Lockport. Actual care portion wasn't very long. Very cool and relaxing to walk along the canal and then into the cave. Highly recommend if your in Lockport, NY.

I visited this attraction last week and learned quite a bit about the locks in Lockport and the subsequent creation of the manmade cave. It was a pleasent afternoon tour along the side of the locks and very informative. The manmade cave was eerie and damp which created an exciting atmosphere for storytelling. I recommend this tour.

The "cave" was great and very informative. Just so you know - It's really an underground piping system - "cave" is dug out of the rocks with occasional large piping. We started down the steps and watched a boat go through the lock. Saw the reconstruction of the Historic 5 lock system.Underground tour of water powered industries. Nice boat ride... More
