About Us

What we do


We offer many different Bike Tours and Walking Tours as unique adventures to 

Discover, Explore and Experience Lockport, NY and the Erie Canal.  

These are historically based and narrated guided tours, that make stops along the way at historic sites and iconic landmarks.

Lockport is THE destination that provides the Premier Erie Canal Experience of the entire NYS Canalway Corridor!


From May when the Canal opens through October when it closes, you can see boats locking through Locks 34 & 35 daily.  Locks 34 and 35 are  "combination locks", where the upper door of Lock 34 is also the lower door of Lock 35.

The entire set of all 5 locks of Lockport's "Flight of Five" Locks are in the process of being brought back to life.  

World famous when they opened in 1825  as the only duplicated flight, we look forward to completing our goal of having our 1842 ca. locks working & complete. Locks 69 & 70 now working, will soon have Lock 68 join them Fall 2018

Reviews

 Thank you!  We had a great time and learned a lot.  You were wonderful guides, fun to be with and full of information.  The pictures will be a reminder, but we have already been thinking how we can get relatives on your enjoyable tour.   We will be back!   Phil M.

The monument by the YWCA. Very cryptic, I’m fascinated. Can you picture the mirror in the indented square. How it would glow. We had so much fun. Thank you!  Lisa P.

 Wow, what a full and complete experience.  Thank you Sandy and Mike for your knowledge and enthusiasm!  Phil M.

Highly recommended tour! Sandy and Mike share the history of Lockport while you stand on the very ground where the events happened.  Lee W.

Tours and Events

100% of the proceeds from our admission sales, go directly back to LHDC and are dedicated to the initiative to preserve the Historical Heritage of our city’s Canal District and restore our entire set of the 1842 Flight of Five locks to working condition.. All of our guests become a little bit of history and help preserve it for future generations. We thank you!

Locks 34 and 35  are among the earliest surviving examples of modern lock design and the only combined lock in the entire Erie Canal!

Be a part of history, be a part of our heritage of NYS.  The Flight of Five locks is the most complete surviving artifact of the enlarged Erie Canal
