My husband, two teenage sons, and I really enjoyed this. Our guide Mark took us all around the city, sharing tons about Buffalo's history and showing us lots of interesting sights and beautiful buildings. A great way to learn about Buffalo and have some fun!

Everything was wonderful. The pace, the length, the itinerary, and the guide. She was well -informed, friendly, warm, and interesting. Also a talented musician! At the beginning and end she took out a violin and played & sang a couple of historical Buffalo songs for us. Luanne was her name, and if you're lucky enough to have her as your tour guide, you're sure to enjoy the experience. Also, the bikes were in good shape and appropriate for the terrain, which is almost entirely flat and very easy pedaling.

This is a wonderful way to see the city, especially since it is such an easy bike. Also, Marc is a great tour guide who really drills down on many of the city's most prominent sites. The highlight of our trip to this great city!

We really enjoyed our ride and learned a lot about Buffalo, especially since this was our first time in the city. Leanne was knowledgeable and friendly. There was probably a bit more car traffic on the route than we expected when we signed up, but the ride was very doable and we loved being outside, getting exercise, and learning about the city all at the same time.

I am a Buffalonian but decided to take my kids (11, 13 and 15) on this tour to supplement the COVID school schedule. It was great. We learned about the history of the city and some of the iconic buildings and areas.
My kids were not enthusiastic about going on the tour but they ended up having fun.
I would highly recommend this to visitors as well as locals.

I didn’t know much about Buffalo NY prior to doing the tour. It was an eye-opener on the richness and depth of the history and culture of the city. Marc is an awesome tour guide. My boyfriend and I enjoyed our time. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to to have a quick and fun history lesson, just don’t forget to bring your sunscreen!

What a great experience! Our guide, Leanne, displayed a remarkable amount of knowledge about the history of Buffalo. My wife and I were in town with another couple for a long weekend (and Bills game). We tried to pack as much fun stuff in as possible and the history tour was right up there. Being able to combine an enjoyable bike ride while learning history on a day with beautiful weather was pure joy. We all learned a lot about the ups and downs Buffalo has experienced over many decades. So great that they continue to trend UP! Great town with friendly people and amazing food. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Buffalo for the first time or the hundredth time.

We had a fantastic ride! We’ve never been to Buffalo and the tour was the ideal way to learn and see so many neighborhoods and corners of the city. Marc knows his stuff and was fun and patient. We especially enjoyed learning the B sides history of Buffalo.

Buffalo Bike Tours was an incredible way to visit Buffalo. We did the Buffalo History tour and learned so much about the history of Buffalo. We could not have done this by foot. Too many places and to much distance to cover. Our group included people over 50 and under 15. All had a great time. The best thing is you can get around without having to climb many hills. Most of the roads we biked were flat and easy to maneuver on. We would highly recommend Buffalo Bike Tours to when visiting Buffalo. Great time had by all.

This was an amazing tour and a "must-do" when visiting Buffalo. My sister and I had just arrived to the area for vacation and decided to take this tour, as it was our first time visiting the city - so glad we did! Marc was fantastic and very knowledgeable about Buffalo and its history. The bike rentals were great and the bike route was also very scenic - easy enough for anyone who knows how to ride a bike. Overall we were very happy with our experience and would recommend it to anyone visiting or living in Buffalo!
