The tour was ok. We found a good deal on Groupon, so it wasn't a bad value. I think it probably is more fun when it is warmer & the windows are down. I'd recommend the individual seats. They use a microphone, so you should be able to hear well throughout the bus.

Fun and funky history and humor tour of a many-storied town. We've taken the tour three times now, and it's a little different each time depending on your driver, but it's always a lot of fun. You can bring the kids, too! You get to see some corners of Boulder you otherwise wouldn't, and I would highly recommend taking the... More

our daughter made reservations for us on the Boulder city tour. Was very nice, and the tour guide was from Michigan whick made it more interesting. Not a real comfy bus, but more hippie-like and something to talk about.

Tour guide was entertaining but the bus was very uncomfortable. Have taken similar comedic tours in other cities this was only moderately enjoyable

Banjo Billy's Bus Tour is the perfect way to get your bearings on your first day/visit to Boulder!! It is an old hippie style bus with the most amazing collection of seats throughout, from a saddle to a full sized couch across the back row of the bus.

We and 5 others had the Boulder tour and it was fun!. We loved the ghost stories, the history and the quaint bus with unique seats. Some suggestions: Provide bottled water. Shorten the tour to 1 hour 15 minutes by being more concise with some of the stops. (It seemed just a little too long but maybe because I was... More

Excellent tour. Had the pleasure of having Bango Billy himself as a guide. Billy was extremely knowledgable of local history which added to the tour.
