“Loved our afternoon with Buffalo Bites Tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

My daughter and I went on a tour and we loved it! The food was great and the restaurants were very accommodating! The host was very knowledgeable on local history and was a lot of fun with her intern in tow! We had a very enjoyable afternoon strolling Elmwood Avenue area in Buffalo!

“Buffalo Bites..... needs nuturing and developing!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

This tour is new......and it shows. The owner is very very nice and passionate about what she does but there are a few teething problems to bear in mind...... 1) the tour is over-priced - a boat tour on the Spirit of Buffalo will cost you less and is much more enjoyable............2) the food stops are okay - but where is the beef on weck stop? or the stop to try sponge candy or sweet potato fries? - these are after all Buffalo staples!!!!! ask any native Buffalonian........3) the ratio of eating/walking is not quite right with many food stops spaced too close together with large portions of walking inbetween - maybe they could be spaced out a little better?.......4) the owner shlould have back-up tasting venues available as when we went on the tour one stop was not open - this was disappointing and maybe a backup venue should be available??.....5) the owner should consider that some food stuffs are not ethically agreeable to everyone and so offering veal without prior consultation could potentailly upset a few people. Hopefully with time this tour will improve ...... but to be honest there are better tours available in Buffalo including the Spirit of Buffalo tour and Segway Tours provided by the excellent Buffalo Touring Comapny. Think before you book this one!!!

, Owner at Buffalo Bites Food Tours, responded to this review, June 28, 2012
Thanks so much for your candid response. I just wanted to let you know that improvements have already been made and addressed. In particular, the establishment that was suddenly closed on the day of your tour is now closing permanently, which is really a blessing in disguise for Buffalo Bites Food Tours! The good news is I am bringing a delicious Buffalo favorite to the tour - sponge candy.

As you mentioned we are a new business and we will strive to provide our customers with a fun, valuable and memorable experience. As we continue on this journey, customer feedback is appreciated!

“Great Start To An Awesome Idea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

The owner just started this business a couple weeks ago and it is a great idea. My girlfriend and I are new to Buffalo and got knowledge of Buffalo's history and got to taste food at six awesome places. The portions were perfect!

Also, if someone were to write a bad review about the owner, you should skip over it. She is extremely nice and cares about making her tourists happy.

Check this out for sure!
