A silver lining to a recent rainstorm during our tour yesterday-a beautiful rainbow over our city.
Thank you Buffalo for welcoming our service to the city. Just one month into our venture, the reviews have been better than we ever expected.
So far we received a total of more than 90 Google Reviews, all of then 4 or 5 stars.
Face Book users have been generous, we have a 4.9 star rating (out of 5) with more than 90 reviews.
We're fortunate to have some travelers who use Trip Advisor. We have 30 reviews, all of them 5 star. Thank you to all our guests who have taken a moment to share their thoughts about exploring Buffalo aboard our double decker bus.
We were fortunate to invite our friends from WIVB-TV aboard our bus for a sample tour and they were kind enough to report about it on our local CBS affiliate. Many thanks to Kaylee Wendt and Jeff Helmick for telling the story, which is found here.
We are fortunate to have received coverage from our local NPR station regarding the launch of our double decker service.
The piece by WBFO can be found here. I would like to thank Edwin Viera and his colleague for taking the time to chat with us about the new venture. The picture below was taken by Mr. Viera.
A special thank you to Buffalo News reporter Mark Sommer and Photographer Bob Kirkham for sharing our inaugural ride aboard the double decker bus on July 4th. They did a great job of capturing the fun of our tour.
The article is found here. The image is from July 4th when we welcomed guests from Buffalo's Ungerground Meet-up to sample our tour.
We are proud to announce that we are going to begin offering tours starting Friday July 7th. We'll be offering three tours on Friday July 7th, Saturday July 8th and Sunday July 9th. We've been out testing the bus. In this image you'll see the bus at Wilkeson Pointe on Buffalo's Outer Harbor.
The bus looks a little plain because when this picture was taken the bus was not updated with our graphics. We'll post a picture of that as soon as the dramatic lettering is finished.
Now that our 1985 Leyland Olympian bus has arrived and actually works, we're buffing it up, cleaning it out and adding a few new items. Currently we're working on updating the dated seat covers which featured lime green accents (Yeah Baby!). Thanks to all our family members who pitched in to help us meet our July 7th goal for operations.
Now we need to register the vehicle and have it inspected. More updates as they become available. Meanwhile check out the groovy seats, man.
Our 77 passenger authentic British bus is finally arriving tomorrow in Buffalo. We are super excited to greet her as she arrives at our terminal in Buffalo.
The Leyland Olypian bus began her life in the UK and then migrated to the US for mechanical upgrades that allowed her to serve tourists in Charlotte North Carolina. Now she is destined to help you hear the stories of our region and provide the best tours of Buffalo NY.
After months of planning and praying, our double decker bus service is set to launch on July 7th, 2017. There are still a few hurdles but we are confident that everything will be set for that date.
