  • Great experience. Beautiful day in Buffalo on the water; 88° and sunny! Historian spoke with extreme knowledge for a full 90 minutes. Very interesting. Boat was clean & spacious with plenty of covered seating. Full bar on premises ($2.50-$10.00) with baged snacks available. Would recommend highly.
  • Great canal walk. Great staff and interesting sightseeing tour of the old places. Interesting historical places and history of the guide. Driving under bridges that float overhead. It was windy at the top of the deck, but more interesting. There are tables where you can have drinks. the walk was an hour and a half.
