Our tour was great. Docent was funny & informative. Refreshments were reasonably priced. Arrive early to find a parking space! We learned a lot about the history of the Buffalo River & surrounding areas. We didn't realize what a key role the city played in the development of the west. Docent kept it light and entertaining. It didn't hurt that the day was sunny and warm as well.

The Buffalo River History tour was absolutely great! The docent was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Buffalo. I saw a part of Buffalo I never knew existed. I would highly recommend this trip to others.
