Great tour. As others have mentioned the tickets sales area is lacking energy, focus and a welcoming attitude. Lady on her phone before, during and after check in. Nasty papers you are to give to crew - with Covid should at least use 1 time use tickets. Crew was fine. Captain on his phone when not talking. Look up steer alittle back to phone. Bench cushions and plastic benches dirty. I really didn’t want to sit on cushions but benches looked uncomfortable for 2 hour cruise. Need some new bright and padded cushions!! At first flag on front of boat was only attached at top. Seems this operation isn’t about the details and injecting a spirit of pride and love of history in its operations. Loved being able to do this but hard to say would recommend to a friend.

This was a last minute trip on our way home from Niagara Falls. Great value! Friendly staff! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and quite enjoyable. Perfect for all ages. To top it off it was a beautiful SUNNY day! Awesome way to end our trip. Definitely one to put on your list of things to see.

We brought our almost 1 year old baby with us in a carrier and had a great time. The walking is not strenuous. The information was great. The cave boat ride was fun and it was great to see and learn about some history of lockport. Brody was our tour guide and he was very informative. (Only complaint: right before the tour I went into the office to grab my tickets and also see if we could bring our stroller in. The guy in the office was very grumpy, barely looked at me, quickly handed me my tickets and said no to the stroller. He was very rude. I'm glad he wasn't the tour guide.)

This is the second time that we've travelled through locks 34 & 35. A great way to spend a couple of hours! The first trip was many years ago, and we enjoyed it very much. This trip comes shortly after buying property along the Erie Canal. The Captain provided interesting information, that I found myself paying closer attention to!! He was also very comical ... which made the trip a lot of fun!! Beautiful weather ... close up views of an engineering marvel. Truly a unique experience!! Go!!
