I love the Buffalo Double Decker Bus Tour. Joel Dombrowski playing Officer O'Toole (think that was his name) was so much fun. He knew so much history that he passed on often in such a funny way that it was a laugh every minute (or second). The rain came down at the end of the tour so we parked under a building and he commended to tell even more stories. Really, you have got to take this tour. You will not be disappointed.

Betty-we needed to improvise when the heavy rain hit, so we parked under the Marriott and it gave us time for some longer form storytelling. Nice to know that despite the deviation from our normal route we still managed to have a good time. Thank you for the review!

Our tour guide was so funny and interactive. We loved the bus and it was a cool way to be able to see Buffalo and learn about it. We booked the one with the tour of the Naval ships. My kids (6 &9) loved it and so did the rest of the family. So glad we didn't miss this one on our Vacation.

We (party of 8 adults) had a great time on the tour, despite it being a chilly and rainy day. Officer O'Connor did and awesome job in presenting the city history and potential future. His enthusiasm and passion made us forget about the weather and focus on his narrative of the city history. His humor is very well received. This tour is appropriate for all ages and any weather. Thanks for the great experience!
