Overview
Explore Charlotte's most interesting neighborhoods on this 90-minute bus tour with a comedic spin. As you cruise through town, a guide provides humorous commentary on the sights, sounds, and history of the Queen City.  The jokes you hear on the comedy bus are like the ones you hear in a comedy club. They can get pretty 'raw,' so bring your own beer or wine. Sit back and enjoy this hilarious, adult-oriented tour and experience all the excitement.

  • See the city and enjoy adults-only comedy on this bus sightseeing tour
  • Enhance the experience by bringing your own beer and wine on the bus
  • Learn about the city’s history and sights, while laughing along the way

What to Expect
This Charlotte comedy city tour, with multiple departure times, meets at 7th Street Public Market where you’ll get settled and board the open-air bus. This is an adults-only tour, and adults of legal drinking age can BYO beer or wine if they want to sip and ride. You’ll drive through some of Charlotte’s most popular areas, including Uptown, Southend, Plaza Midwood, NoDa, and the Fourth Ward, and take in the views and attractions along the way. Learn cool facts about the city’s history, architecture, and culture. Historical tidbits are given with a dose of mature, adult comedy to get everyone cracking up. There’s one pit stop about halfway through your tour. Please note this tour takes the adult-only content seriously, and no one under 16 is allowed on this bus.

Have to admit I was a little disappointed with this tour. It was not nearly as funny as a tour I experienced some years ago in Nashville, TN. Our tour guide gets an A for effort, though!

We had so much fun touring the city with Dee and JJ! The comic made it fun learning about the city and people of Charlotte while drinking, laughing and engaging with the all passengers on the bus. I would definitely do it again!

I believe there is wheelchair space on the bus, but no lift or ramp was observed for boarding the bus.

They usually slow the bus down to allow for photo opportunities. They don't really encourage coming off the bus as they are on tight time schedule.
