We've seen the Banjo Billy bus tours around Boulder for years, and finally we decided to play tourist in our own town, and took the tour. The bus driver was fun and engaging. Yes, the jokes are corny, but it made for an amusing experience....More

We had a great little tour on the Banjo Billy bus. The tour guide had a lot of interesting stories on the history of Boulder. Sit on a saddle, couch or recliner and enjoy the ride!

A unique bus, with equally unique seating, ride across the city, lots of ghost stories and a superb guide. What else is required for a fun trip. And Banjo Billy's certainly had it all. I had loads of fun on this trip.

This was a great way to learn some neat things about Boulder from the unusual transportation option of this tricked out school bus. Miles and Patrick were great and professional BUT fun too. There were nearly all ages on our tour and everyone seemed to...More

Took the tour with 4 adults and 2 teenage girls. Many interesting facts, with a mix of comedy and ghost stories. Our guide Patrick did a great job. The teenagers got a bit bored.
