“explore the historic Erie Canal Locks”
An interesting, 70 minute guided historical tour through America's past. You will explore the historic Erie Canal Locks 67-71 constructed in 1838, view ruins from an early industrial age, and your guide will rock in the mid-1800's, viewing stalactites, flowstone and other geological formations. You will also see artifacts left behind by the men who build the tunnel in the early days of the Erie Canal. Then you will ride in an underground boat. Visitors are awestruck as they take a ride that has been described as both "peaceful and eerie" as the boat glides through lifeless waters, illuminated only by small, sporadically placed electric lights.
Came here on an historically hot day (summer 2012) so the cool cave was a godsend. Kids enjoyed the boat ride to boot.
Really enjoyed the tour. guide was knowledgeable about the locks and it was fun to see a boat go through. not very many go through though....
A fun and educational tour given by knowledgable and energetic guides. The Erie Canal Discovery Center and Erie Canal Museum at Locks 34 & 35 are just a block away, so make sure to visit those too.
