We stopped in at the visitor center before heading out to explore the Adirondack region. The folks at the center were very knowledgeable about the area and very helpful.

You should begin at the visitors center, the front desk attendant (Margaret?) was very nice and provided us with information. We found all of the attractions with no problems.

You most definitely should start your stay in Saratoga Springs by stopping in at the Visitor's Center. The woman that was there on the Sunday that we visited was very helpful. The center has many brochures and posters of what is going on in the city. We picked up maps of the main street and cups to sample the mineral... More

If you're looking for brochures, this is the place. I suspect though that the staff are all good hearted volunteers, but don't really have the answers to your questions

Sis and I in Saratoga for weekend. Thought we'd start our visit with a guided tour, either walking or otherwise, of some area of Saratoga. When I asked for guide, the woman looked at me like I was crazy. No, they didn't have anything like that. Hm. So, we moved on to ask about doing our own walking tour of... More

My girlfriend and I were in Saratoga for Labor Day weekend and found the Visitor's Center and the tour in Congress Park highly impressive. The tour guide on August 31st was an entrepreneur who was filling in for someone else but his exceptional knowledge of the history and geology of Saratoga provided us a unique perspective on the origins of...

Stopped by for directions to the hotel. The elderly woman seemed confused about where the hotel was and how to get there. .. She did manage to explain it and it was fine but I do think she should have been more knowledgeable. I would have like to look at the info but my husband was parked in the street... More

The staff could be more engaged. Once we got their attention, they recommended a tour of the State Park for the spa (mineral springs) that was very worthwhile.

We arrived at the center today around 10 a.m. After walking around and watching the 15 video we were about to leave, then they announced a walking tour. It cost $5 per. No warning that the tour would last ~90 minutes. Regardless, our tour guide, Ray, did a wonderful job pointing out the sights and taking us on a walk... More
