We went as a family day trip. It was one of those days you have nothing to do so it was like "o.k. lets do the Caves" We had the best time. We all learned some thing new about our home town. It's dark and cool (perfect for a hot summer day), but not damp or unpleasant. There is a... More

We booked this tour last minute for something to do with my niece and nephew before trick or treating. Our expectations were far exceeded. Not only did Mark have incredible information to share about the history but he is obviously very passionate about the area as well. He was great engaging both kids (ages 6 and 10) and adults- my...

If you want to see locks and the Erie canal, and walk through a cave that was used for hydropower over 100 years ago, this is your place. Paige was our tour guide and she did a great job. We did not see a lock work, but it was described fairly well, so you have a good idea how it... More

We were staying in Lockport to see Niagara Falls. Was told by a local we should check this out. Nice little excursion for the day. Very informative.

We had a wonderful tour guide that was very knowledgeable. The history of the locks and the men who built them is pretty amazing.
