Though a chartered yacht is a comfortable way to tour the seas, it can only navigate city streets with the help of hundreds of unhappy pack goats. Tour Buffalo in terra firma style and comfort with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a historic architecture tour of your choice (a $20 value) from Open-Air Autobus of Buffalo. This Groupon expires on September 19, 2010.
Open-Air Autobus tours, guided by the members of The Campaign for Greater Buffalo History, are anchored in affection for the preservation of Buffalo's architecture, landscapes, and other histori-cultural sites. The 100 Years of Bungalows and 'Foursquares' Tour highlights the architectural styles that boomed in the early 20th century, while The Whirlwind Tour, Open-Air Autobus's most popular excursion, provides a fast-paced look at Buffalo's masterworks by Frank Lloyd Wright, H.H. Richardson, Louis Sullivan, and more. Tours focusing specifically on Wright and delving into prime historic-neighborhood pockets are also offered; click here to see complete tour descriptions.
This season's schedule offers tours on Thursday and Friday evenings and Saturday and Sunday mornings from now until September 20. Customers should call ahead to book their narrated scoots through the streets. Purchase up to four Groupons for yourself to ascend to architecture experthood by autumn, or purchase even more as gifts to ogle the sites with friends.
Tours are based on availability. Meet-up locations may vary.
