“Informative and fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Joel's tour of Buffalo's brewery district was a great night out. Having done a number of Buffalo history tours in the past, I was apprehensive of this tour repeating commonly known information. I was very happy to be wrong about that! Joel provided an insight into the city is not very well known. I gained a lot of new information while laughing and having a good time! Take the tour, you will be happy you did!

“Great Tour with Entertaining Guide!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

My husband, sister-in-law and I took the Pub Crawl Tour and had a wonderful evening full of facts, history and laughs. The tour is a perfect way to spend a summer evening and see some of the hidden and well known pieces of architecture in the city as well as learn about the city's interesting past during the early days of existence. The size of the group as well as the length of the tour were perfect. We look forward to exploring some of the other tours Joel offers!

This is a fantastic tour that is enjoyable, fun and very interesting . The hotel itself has much history and it has taken a huge dedicated effort with artists all over the country that renovated this beautiful piece of Buffalo history.

“Fun, educational, and hilarious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We enjoyed, now our second, Buffalo History Tour with Joel. We had a lovely brunch at The Pan Am, and were escorted by the hostess to find Joel waiting in the glorious Lafayette lobby. This was the "Sunday Brunch" tour. We learned so much about the architecture, history and some rather amusing stories about the history of not only The Lafayette, but the area surrounding this gem of Buffalo.

Prior to this tour, we had enjoyed a COMPLETELY different tour a week prior with Joel, a "Buffalo's Brewery District" tour. What a wonderfully fun and interesting experience this was. We toured a couple pubs, walked about the city, taking time to experience pieces of history preserved in time right before us. It was a stop and smell the roses, taste the brews and hear the stories of Buffalo's past sort of night.

HIGHLY recommend any of Buffalo History Tours events. Joel is funny, educated and a sincerely good guy!
