Best way to visit Zippo museum from Buffalo, USA

We are planning a trip to the Zippo museum from Buffalo. Driving is not an option so what is the best way to do this trip with the following itinery - Flying from NY to Buffalo, day trip to Bradford and then returning to Niagara Falls for 2 nights? Can't seem to find any day coach tours from Buffalo and have no idea about trains or buses. Can use a chauffeured car service from Bradford but they will charge us $56/hr for the time the driver spends waiting for us. There are 2 adults and 2 teenagers travelling. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

There are no passenger trains into Bradford. They do list Buffalo as a stop. The train website is www.amtrak.com

This bus company lists Bradford and Buffalo as ticket offices, you may want to call them direct fullingtontours.com/fulltours/website/info/t…

Zippo isn't a large tourist destination (like WIne Country or Corning Glass), so direct bus tours would likely not be scheduled. Without renting a car, it's going to be very difficult (and expensive) to get where you want to go.

Driving is not an option 'cos we come from a country that drives on the opposite side to US. The road rules are so different .

I think using the chauffeured service may end up being the best and cheapest way to go - about $ 260 return from Buffalo and then the driver's time on top of that.

Thanks for your reply.
