What a fun walking tour. Laura is a very knowledgeable tour guide and her choices for the tastings were varied, interesting, and tasty. This is a must do in Buffalo!

This is one of the best tours I have participated in. Laura, our guide and company founder, did an amazing job of keeping us well fed and well informed. We had the opportunity to taste the food at 7 different eateries and tour the beautiful and historic Elmwood Village area. The tour was well organized with the tastings nicely spaced... More

Only in Buffalo two days with only one free afternoon and found the Buffalo bites tour. Booked about 5 days in advance. Got a phone call the morning of the tour saying it was canceled because not enough bookings that day and the tour operater loses money. I do understand the economics of the situation but the days they have... More

Did this tour with guide Laura who did an excellent job. This tour combines tasting lots of different food and beverages and walking through and learning a lot about some historical neighborhoods in the Elmwood area of Buffalo. Very fun time. Excellent value.

I took my mom on a tour as a Mother's Day gift. My three boys (ages 12, 14, 17) also came along. The tour guide was very engaging. Our favorite stops were the Globe Market, the sandwiches are delicious, and Coles, my boys enjoyed the wings and my mom and I had the vegetarian option, the risotto balls. I was... More

Our tour guide, Laura, was very personable, friendly and... More

Buffalo is not the most exciting city in the world. It does not have the best hockey team or the best football team. I have Never been on a food tour before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Our tour guide was great and we had a great time learning about the city. The samples were the perfect size... More

Our family did the Buffalo Bites tour to celebrate my husband's birthday in late December. Really fun day and our tour guide Laura was fantastic. She shared lots of history about the development of the Elmwood area and Buffalo in general including details about the impact of different immigrant groups over the years. Light hearted and entertaining with just the... More
