This 90 minute tour explores Buffalo's historic and beautiful waterfront. We begin with a ground floor walking tour of a massive abandoned grain elevator, a complex comprised of 36 individual silos that could store more than 1 million bushels of grain. Hopping aboard the bus we head towards Canalside with a stop at the Long Shed building. Then we experience the Erie Basin Marina featuring beautiful views of Lake Erie and the Canadian shore. We hop on the elevated Skyway to make our way to the Outer Harbor, eventually returning to our starting point.

Enjoy this rare opportunity to explore the former GLF silo along the Buffalo River. Hear about the dangers faced by grain scoopers as they struggled to scratch out a living during Buffalo's days of being the 6th busiest port in the world.
Go behind the scenes at Canalside's newest attraction, the Long Shed. See craftsmen build a 73 foot long wooden canal boat, a replica of the Seneca Chief--the boat that was here 200 years ago to open the Erie Canal.
Relive the stories of Buffalo's notorious waterfront where cut throats, thieves, sailors, immigrants and people of 'ill repute' struggled to survive in the 'Canal District'.
