      The Lake George/Ausable Chasm/Lake Placid Tour was Amazing!

      My friend and I enjoyed the Lake George and Ausable Chasm Tour very much. The Lake George cruise on the "Minne HaHa" was beautiful, and I enjoyed hiking and rafting at the Ausable Chasm much more than I expected. We also really enjoyed th...e beautiful scenery that we experienced at Lake Placid. Our tour guide, Vivian, was very good, and so was our driver. We only wished we could have had a little longer time at the rest stop on the way home so that we could have sat down and eaten something, since we could not bring anything on the bus that had a smell, and most food has some kind of smell. I would definitely recommend this tour for nature lovers. Read full review

    Dear Elmer,

    Thanks for your interest at Tours4fun.

    The tour requires that participants purchase any and all admissions from the tour guide for the attractions made available during the tour.

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    Best Regards,

    If we don't go on the steamboat or the water park, can we stay in Adirondacks Park and explore and then meet the tour guide at the end of the day?

    Also, what do we do if we don't go to the chasm and only want to go to white face mountain and lake placid?

    Lastly, how much time do we usually have in the lakes? Can we go for a swim and stuff like that?

You will have to check with the tour guide during the tour if the schedule will allow for a swim in the lake.
