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 our tour guide/comedian, really enjoy & love what he do — and he’s good at it too!  

Had an absolute blast. First off it is super convenient getting picked up in the flats at Collision Bend Brewery. The Funny Bus staff was warm and welcoming as we got on the bus. The interior was roomy and comfortable. Our small cooler fit perfectly under the seat and the seats even had a bottle opener attached. The tour was informative and the comedian was hilarious. Kudos to the funny bus as this has been long overdue for Cleveland. Can’t wait to book our next trip.

Funny bus was a trip! The bus, staff and tour all clicked. Being able to bring adult beverages was a plus. Would only recommend if you want to laugh and have fun. Going to book the funny bus for our work outing.

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to have a good time in downtown Cleveland.

This tour was fun and interactive – the crowd is invited to dance, cheer along, and answer questions and win prizes! Oh, and did I mention you can bring along your own drinks?

Unique, informative tour of Cleveland like we’ve never seen before. We will be back for another comedian.

We had a great time on the funny bus. The comedian and driver were awesome! It’s the perfect balance of local info and comedy so you get to learn about Cleveland and laugh at the same time. I can’t wait to go again!

The comedian was hilarious, and the tour of Cleveland was top notch. Would highly recommend checking it out.

Great idea! Loved hearing all about the city of Cleveland, playing some games and lots of laugh! BYOB was a nice addition!  Trip Advisor
