Scheduled our tour for 5pm. Weather was pleasant. The guide gave a nice lecture about the Erie Canal. Was nice to see part of the "Eighth" Wonder of the World! Very scenic!

We took a ride on a river boat up the Erie canal and went through a lock at Lockport. It was great fun to see how it all works. The boat rises so fast inside the lock. This is a great attraction for kids to learn about the canal.

Nice Visitor center with shop, coffee stand and bathroom, great picnic grounds cool and in the shade next to the Erie Canal....the cruise was informative and going through the lock (twice) was fun...there's a snack bar on the boat.

Cruise along the historic Erie Canal while learning about the constructions and events leading up to the canal of today's time. Enjoy the lifting and lower of the cruise boat at Locks 34 & 35. Must see! I have lived in Lockport for seven (7) years now and have been saying that my husband and I need to go and do this attraction. I remember learning about the canal in fifth (5th) grade and then coming to see them. Brought me back to a great childhood memory. Well worth the money!!! Recommend making reservations online and confirmation of tour time will be made via e-mail. Seamless process. Arriving 15 minutes early was dead on. Gives you just enough time to get your tickets and look around the small store.

The tour of this portion of the Erie Canal is loaded with history, such as, the flight of five locks, that are being restored to their original condition. The tour included traveling thru two working locks. As a kid, I remember doing a project in school where we built a model of the Flight of Five Locks, and now to actually experience this is really great...a must see!!
