I had no idea that Lockport had caves! But a visitor wanted to go see something unique and so away we went. It was an appropriate length tour for how much there was to see. Our guide was incredible and knew every single detail and answered tons of questions. I'd recommend it even if you're local so you learn more... More

I was born and lived in Lockport most of my life and it took me 45 years to discover this jewel that Lockport has to offer. It explains a lot about the early years of Lockport and you get to experience it first hand. This is a great family activity and everyone should do this!

visited here with our tow teen sons. Enjoyed the tour guide who was very interesting telling the history of the cave. Wet and dark environment. But if yo like history this is a great experience.

We Usually stay around Niagara Falls N.Y. and decided to go over to Lockport (1/2 hr. drive) and check out the Historic Erie Canal. Kind of a drizzly day so we visited the Museum in Lockport. Very interesting place with history of the Erie Canal. Families will enjoy it. The Whole Town of Lockport is Historic and buildings are photographic.... More

It was a HOT summer day and the caves were cool in temperature- they were okay - a little creepy, a little crowded and scary- walking alongside a tunnel of water on dimly lit narrow paths to a small boat that goes forward and back...it was cool enough- the history is awesome!

Have comfy shoes because there's a lot of walking. Wasn't hard, tho and being a cave, it was dark. We had a fun, knowledgable tour guide who kept us interested & invited questions. Would highly recommend this if you like history

This tour was something different since the cave itself is man made. The guide did an excellent job and was very knowledgeable about the cave, Lockport history and the history of the Erie Canal locks. The short boat ride at the end was fun! There is a lot of walking on this tour and climbing stairs, but we weren't rushed... More

The guide made the tour very interesting and the boat ride was different...this is a man made cave so dont expect fantastic cave formations....just was interesting from an historic angle. There is quite a lot of walking but lots of stops...quite a lot of steps at the end but tour is over by then so can take your time
