We thought it was a little odd when a blind man approached the Banjo Billy's Tour Bus parked in front of the Boulderado Hotel!? When we boarded the bus we realized he wasn't taking the tour, he was giving it! Chris was clever and engaging, telling us the history, rumors, and gossip about the various personalities and landmarks in town... More

The Bus is fun quirky and engaging Billy knows his history and will tailor the "talk" and tour to the age group of the audience. (We were a business group out for an evening fun event and he asked "do you want the G, R, or X" tour- we took R,) He is fun and you really get an "insider... More

If you're looking for something different, yet comprehensive, in touring Boulder, this is the trip for you. Glenn ,our tour guide and driver, is an economics professor who also does improv on the side he has a witty sense of humor which kept us laughing for the 90 minute trip. He was informative and took us to places we wouldn't... More

We really enjoyed our ninety minute bus tour of Boulder. Our driver and guide, Glenn, was as colorful as the hillbilly bus itself. You'll learn lots about whereabouts and whyabouts of Boulder. Do it. You'll be glad you did.

Open air bus with somewhat uncomfortable seating. However, amusing and informative guide. Somewhat annoying to repeatedly ask group if they wanted history vs. ghost information. Covered a GREAT deal including Chatauqua park and the University of Colorado. I would suggest to downplay the goofy data when the audience is mostly all seniors. Make sure you go to the bathroom beforehand... More

This a great fun. The bus is a log cabin on wheels! It's garishly decorated, with a strange assortment of sofas and chairs on board (get on early if you don't want to sit on a saddle for the tour!) The air conditioning system is a treat!! Our driver/ guide was incredibly knowledgeable and humorous and we certainly got to... More

Banjo Billy's Bus Tour is must do when visiting Boulder. The tour guide was hilarious and informative at the same time. Now that is talent.

This was a great way to see Boulder. It was fun and I learned a lot about the history of the town. Glen was our guide, and we really enjoyed his tour. I loved all the looks people around town would give as we drove by. Best way to spend 90 minutes.

What a really fun way to spend 90 minutes! My family and I only had one day to enjoy Boulder, and we absolutely loved Banjo Billy's tour. Our guide was fun, the trip was informative, and we got to see all of Boulder's great neighborhoods. Also enjoyed a beer and fantastic lunch at The Corner Bar (Hotel Boulderado) while waiting...

First the bus is crazy....wooden siding, easy chairs and couches inside......then the guide is blind but he is funny and informative! Interesting drive around Boulder. And on hot afternoon they even had portable air conditioning (spray bottles ). Really fun, quirky tour...highly enjoyable.
