We had a great afternoon on the Funny Bus! Being new to Charlotte, this was a fantastic way to learn about our new home. Our guide/comedian was Roxanne; she was a blast, informative, and hilarious! We will definitely return with out of town guests. I highly recommend this tour! Thanks for the laughs Roxanne!
Fantastic! JJ was hilarious, the tour was informative (I learned things I didn’t know and I’ve lived in Charlotte for more than a decade) and you can drink during the tour. We had a great time. CHURCH!
Our tour guide JD and driver Dee were awesome! Dee got us around safely and was super sweet. JD was hilarious. Upbeat and very informative about the city. The tour surpassed my expectations and I will definitely be returning to Again. Thanks you making my first visit to Charlotte memorable!
BYOB bar on wheels? Are You Kidding? Sign Me Up, Please. I laughed so hard I was rolling in my seat. Seriously, My cheeks hurt, and had to gently massage them at the end of the tour. I could tell that Brandon, our tour guide/comedian, really enjoy & love what he do — and he’s good at it too!
We did the Rates R Funny Bus Tour and it was definitely worth it. Ill gladly do it again with anyone new who comes to town. I was able to learn a little more about Charlotte in a humorous way. I also loved that I was able to see places Ive never been to before so I can write them down and try them out. Awesome tour!
My husband and I visited Charlotte for the first time last weekend and took the funny bus tour with some friends. We had an awesome time! What a great way to get the feel of a new city… some history, seeing the neighborhoods, and the sports arenas and lots of laughs!! Both our tour guide and driver were great. The length of the tour seemed perfect.. and we also loved the pit stop at the brewery to refresh and stretch your legs for a minute. The Bus was clean and comfortable. Great way to spend a couple hours and get to know the surroundings!
Went on the Funny bus last night. our Comediean was Thomas and let me tell you he was amazing!!! If you go on and he’s working you will have a blast. He was very interactive and we never had a dull moment. Also our bus driver Konica was a great time and very funny as well. Definitely planning on coming back and recommending this to everyone I know!
I went with a friend who was visiting CLT for the first time as well as two other friends that had been here their entire lives. This tour was a blast for everybody involved. I was impressed by all the places we were able to see and learned a bunch of fun facts about the Queen City. JJ did a great job of keeping everybody engaged as well as laughing from start to finish. Safe to say that I will be doing this again.
