The profiler will show you which functions are called and how long
they take but it does not show you the order in which they are called.

I think CodeInvestigator tracks the order of execution but I have
never tried it:

And of course a debugger (pdb or WinDbg for example) will let you
follow along as functions execute, but I don't think they will show
you times.
