  • Great tour! Easy to book. Friendly and knowledgeable captain and docent. Great time with friend. Will be back!  more »
  • See a part of Buffalo that most people miss and learn a whole lot about the city! Both Joe, the pilot, and Mike, the guide, are very personable and run a great cruise.  more »
  • I've been on the historic grain silo tour many times. I take everyone who comes in from out of town on that tour. The staff is always friendly. The docents have great historical knowledge and can always answer my difficult questions. I strongly suggest this on a bright summer day.
  • Great experience!!! Well worth the cost. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and funny. The staff from beginning to end was accommodating and friendly. Already have plans to check out their other tours but I definitely recommend the Silo City boat tour! Great job!
