When it comes to city tours I’ve been on too many to count. However when it comes to city tours I’d recommend, there are only a handful that have been worthy of passing along to others. Funny Bus Comedy City Tour in downtown Charlotte, NC is certainly one of them! This BYOB city bus tour merges the talent of local aspiring comics with the beauty and history of the Queen City all while guest enjoy jokes, fun and their favorite beer or wine they brought along.
Tickets for the Funny Bus are $25 per person. Tours range from PG-13 to R depending on how colorful the content of the jokes are on the tour you’d like to experience. The PG-13 tours run every Saturday and Sunday while the R rated tours run Thursday through Sunday. The bus travels from the 7th Street Public Market and heads throughout the downtown area, showing off sites, monuments, historical stops and great views. The tour lasts approximately 90 minutes with a 15 minute or so bathroom break half way through the tour.
The bus is quaint and comfortable. Each wooden, bench style seat fits 2 people and comes equipped with cup holders and bottle openers! The tour guide on my ride was Thomas, an up and coming comic in the Charlotte area. He was wonderful at engaging those of us on the bus and I loved hearing how he was able to gracefully entangle Charlotte’s history within his comedic talent.
The jokes on the tour were fun but nothing too crazy. I attended the PG-13 tour which departed at 1pm, however there was also an R rated version that would take off at 3pm for those wanting something a bit more “adult-ish”.
The tour featured wonderful views of the city, information about Queen Charlotte, the city’s namesake and other fun facts about the area.
Charlotte is known for it’s embrace of the arts and that was certainly shown throughout the tour.
I really loved seeing all the beautiful art around the city. The murals, statues and architecture was something you don’t see everywhere and beautiful way to color up the city.
Touring Charlotte, NC on the Funny Bus was a blast! Thomas, the tour guide was incredibly funny and very well educated on the local scene and history. He made the tour extremely enjoyable and there were great moments of uncontrollable laughter. If you’ll be visiting the Charlotte area and thinking of a city tour, Funny Bus Comedy City Tour is a definite must!
