Tour was interesting and we enjoyed the humid cool cave walk on a 30 degree Celsius day. Lots of walking and a few stairs. I would recomend if you have the time.

Ken (our tour guide), give a unique spin on how to explain the history of the Erie Canal and the community of Lockport. From the beginning of the tour, he walks you back in time and explains the hardships of those who built the original locks (and questionable dealings of the later upgrading). A men made (and children) cave that... More

This tour just gives a cursory expiation of the locks, so I was glad we had gone on a cruise the day before. That said this was a fascinating tour with lots of great information about the town and this eccentric business owner and his businesses. I would highly recommend it.

Out tour director was excellent. She gave accurate history of the cave and was quite entertaining. Great tour for kids four and up. There is a bit of walking but not very difficult. Would highly recommend it.

This was an educational little piece of history about the locks. There was a bit of walking and points of darkness, so it would not be as pleasant for younger children or older adults with any physical disabilities. Plan on getting dripped on, but not soaked.

A wonderful tour of the locks and some tunnels from abandoned factories along the canal. It's about a 70-minute tour that's mostly walking with a 15-minute boat ride at the end. You will get wet, so dress accordingly. It wouldn't hurt to bring a flashlight too. Our guide Nate provided just the right balance of humor and history. If you... More

We went during the day tour and also booked for the night haunted cave excursion offered on a limited basis with a minimum booking. Was raining the whole time, but the office staff and our guide was excellent. During the day tour we were given rain ponchos because some of the tour included a walk along the locks and then...

We stopped in Lockport on our way from Toronto to Finger Lakes. It is a private owned place and available to explore by guided tour. Ken - the tour guide was very informative and nice speaker. We learnt a lot about the history of Lockport and Erie canal. Underground tour was very interesting as well. All 3 generations of our... More

Great tour guide. Fun for all ages. A lot of walking and steps so hard for elderly or real small children. We took our 12 n 2 year old daughters. The 2 yr old was difficult to keep safe n content, but still a good experience
