We had such a great time on the historic bike tour of Buffalo with our guide Brad. It was part of our 50th high school reunion and would recommend it to any group interested in seeing some of the sites in downtown Buffalo.

This is a new way to see Buffalo. Some history, health (the biking), and some community, while learning (and singing, and hearing a poem) about subtle sites in Buffalo’s history—interesting for citizens and visitors alike. I enjoyed all aspects of it. I’ll be interested to...More

Just had a great time riding with Marc all around town and learning more about the city's past. This tour is special because Marc's sharing his research and lesser known aspects of Buffalo's "alternative" culture of activism. We covered places, stories and art about anti-war...More

Marc is very polite and knowledgeable about the history of the City of Buffalo. His groups are small so you do not have to struggle to hear his presentations. I truly enjoyed the ride and the information.
