I finally checked out the Cave & Underground boat ride. I have lived here all my life, finally did it. I should have done this a long time ago. Its lots of FUN!! Very informative too. Lots of history of the Erie Canal and Lockport. It is a walking tour for the most part, be prepared to do stairs and... More

Nice tour of the old tunnel used to give power to three factories built above it back in the late 1800s. It is a walking tour and on the way to the underground man made cave we were able to catch the lock opening and a boat coming through the canal. The guide wasn't the most excited, almost seemed bored... More

My husband and I were on vacation in Niagara Falls and decided to make the drive over to Lockport to check out the cave tour. It is mainly a walking tour but it is very leisurely with several stops along the way. The tour guide was funny and did an excellent job answering questions. Was definitely worth checking out. Learned... More

Visited with husband & 13 y/o daughter. Enjoyed the tour. Although advertised as a "leisurely stroll" thru the caves, it ended up being a pretty quick walk. The tour guide was informative and answered any questions asked. There are a lot of steps and walking thru the dimly lit cave. Not impossible, but certainly not handicapped accessible. All in all,...

We loved it!!! Staff is really accommodating. We bought ticket for 4 p.m. as we plan to have a boat tour at 12.30 p.m. and were not sure we can make it in time. But when we came back at 14-30 they switched us to 3 p.m. tour. First, you spend half an hour outside and the guide gave you... More

On our way to the falls for the weekend we decided to visit the locks. It was an interesting tour. The boat ride in the cave was nice and our guide was interesting.

Went on mini-trip to see Niagara Falls, New York and since we couldn't check in till after 4:00 p.m. decided to find an attraction nearby. It was a nice hot, sunny day and the walk and historic info was great. Our tour guide very informative and was so nice about taking the photo of both my husband and myself going... More

This was definitely an interesting tour. Our tour guide was an enthusiastic young man. He was slightly difficult to follow at times because he was such a quick talker. The tour would have been better if we could have learned more about how the locks were controlled and operated. The cave portion of the trip was also very interesting, but... More

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
