I grew up in Lockport and in kind of remember hearing about the caves, but the tour and the caves were like nothing that I have ever seen before The tour guide was awesome and we learned so much. Definitely worth it.

Ken is the man! He was a fantastic guide. The tour is about an hour and 15 min long. Walking portion is easy until the steps at the end. The level of detail on the tour is great. Sufficient to be informative but not boring...More

Definately worth doing. If it is raining be sure to dress accordingly as half the tour is outside and in the cave you will get dripped on. We had a lot of rain during our tour, they give blue ponchos but feet were still getting...More

A very informative tour by our guide, Teagan. Loved the history of the Erie Canal & town there. A wonderful way to spend a couple of hours.

Had no idea there was such "infrastructure" to the whole canal/industries of the time. This was a wonderful walking tour to learn about the canal and its history. Zach was great! Puns and all... It's great that this has been made available to the public,...More

I've lived in the Lockport area a long time and this was something I meant to do for so long. I had worked the Haunted Cave once, but never taken the actual tour. Not only do you see the cave and learn it's history, you...More

The travel guide was friendly, information and funny. A little more walking than I would have liked on a hurt foot but I still managed (so I think it was a very easy walk for most people). The boat ride was interesting and relaxing.

You start up on the ground, then follow a tour guide down to the level of the Erie Canal...the locks of the canal are explained and if you are lucky, a boat comes thru so that you can wait and see that ...if not, you...More

Definitely okay for a 7 year old. As for the cast, we barely got wet.But there is drippings of water from the top of the cave and it is moist inside. So we did get little droppings here and there . Since this is nothing like... More

Yes there is a fee, as stated by others. But don't go just for the "ride". The ride is a fairly small part of the overall tour. Go because you want to learn something amazing about our history. It is a very great tour and... More
