Buffalo is my hometown, and there are so much rich history here. This your tells a great story about the Port of Buffalo, it's history, the development of Buffalo Creek. Highly recommend. Then have a cocktail or meal along the river at River Works!

After a few year hiatus from visiting the Queen City we elected to take this trip. Quite enjoyable to learn more about the City we grew up in. Take it. You will enjoy it

Buffalo's river history was presented by "Chris," a very knowledgeable, entertaining young man. The day was beautiful and the boat was well maintained. Great job!
