We went on the Whirlwind Tour and it was great. Our guide Paul was amazing with everything he knows about the architecture of Buffalo. I would do this tour again. On it says 90 minutes but we were gone just about 2 hours. Well worth the $25 per person charge.

The tour shows you all the best architecture of the city alongwith its history and fine details which are made very interesting by the vigor, passion and knowledge of the guide. They know what they are doing. They show you the buildings, downtown, churches, canal everything. Definitely recommend. Buffalo is a pretty city with great architectural traditions. At only 25$...

Very upbeat and informative experience. Professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend for visitors as well as those that live here. Either way you will learn something you didn't know about Buffalo.

My friend and I took the Whirlwind Tour with Paul, or guide, yesterday. We came from Jamestown to do so, and it was well worth the trip to Buffalo. Paul was an energetic, well-informed, enthusiastic guide who kept us enthralled the whole time. We hope that these fine tours will continue to be offered.

We (my teen and I) decided to head to the Larkin market, shop, eat, and then go on the tour. It was an awesome outing. I learned so much about the area and really enjoyed finding treasures in an area that I might otherwise just drive by. The tour guide knew so much about Buffalo and I hope his enthusiasm... More

Tour guide was very educated, funny, informed and knew so much about Buffalo's past. Highly recommended!! We would go agiain next year, as... More
