My husband and I took the "Whirlwind" tour this past weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide is an architect for the City of Buffalo and provided an interesting and informative tour of landmark buildings in Buffalo. You don't need to be a native of Buffalo to enjoy this tour -- anyone will appreciate the incredible history and expanse of the architecture in this city. Highly recommended and a great value at $25/person.

We had cousins from California visiting Buffalo for the first time. While we are comfortable driving guests around the city, there is absolutely no substitute for a guided tour of Buffalo landmarks by Tim Tielman. The open-air concept is a comfortable way to travel around and there is no problem with hearing the narration. Our guests were shocked by the bounty of great buildings and came away with a new found appreciation of our fair city. We learned a great deal as well! Looking forward to doing more of the tours now. Why wait for out of town visitors!!

We had a wonderful experience on the "Buffalo Whirlwind Tour" this past weekend. It was a gathering of our 1961 high school graduating class and capped off the weekend. Our guide, Tim Tielman, was very knowledgeable regarding the history, geology, geography and architecture of Buffalo. He was very warm and welcoming with a deep knowledge of the impact of architecture on the development of Buffalo. Being natives of the area, we learned a great deal about the town we grew up near, and it was well worth the tour cost. Highly recommended.

Despite growing up in Buffalo, I learned so much history and toured areas I've never seen before. Our guide, Paul Mcdonnell, was fantastic! He is an architect that knew so much information about Buffalo's history and the men that built this great city. Our tour was about an hour and a half long. The open air auto bus stopped periodically in front of various landmarks while our guide pointed out the architectural details of the buildings, the history of the buildings and what they were used for, and info about the men who designed and built them. Throughly enjoyed this tour, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to those who live in the Buffalo area, as well as to anyone just visiting.

Hosted a customer event on the Open-Air Autobus and our guests were blown away. Tim Tielman was our guide, he was thorough, knowledgeable,humorous and very professional. The open-air concept offers a unique perspective to enjoy all the amazing architecture our city has to offer...
