Charlotte Comedy City Tour

Tours Charlotte
$25
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.

This Charlotte comedy tour departs at FIRST WARD PARK (301 E 7th St) by the Google Building and the Rail Road stop. Cross Road is College and 7th and will begin in Uptown, where you'll board the open-air bus and meet your comedic guide.

Cruise along the streets to take in the sights and atmosphere as your guide humorously highlights the history, architecture, and entertainment of the city. As you travel through some of Charlotte's most interesting neighborhoods, including Uptown, Southend, Plaza Midwood, NoDa, and the Fourth Ward, listen to your guide's club-style jokes and commentary.

About halfway through, you'll stop for a quick break. Feel free to bring your own beer and wine on board to enhance your adults-only sightseeing experience.

Please note: Due to the mature nature of the jokes on the bus and the on-board alcohol, this tour is intended for adults only. Those under the age of 16 are not permitted, and absolutely no babies are allowed on the bus due to safety issues (there are no seat belts, and the bus cannot hold car seats or strollers). If any tickets are purchased for children, they will not be allowed to board and no refund will be issued.

Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden General Daytime Admission Pass

Tours Charlotte
$13
Create lifelong memories and reconnect with nature at this spectacular botanical garden. Known as the Carolinas' "garden for all seasons," this garden is set on 380 acres on the banks of shimmering Lake Wylie, and boasts fountains, trails, a visitor pavilion, and North Carolina's only conservatory of tropical plants and orchids. Wander the grounds at your own pace while admiring the wealth of plant life, and relax in the calming, natural surroundings while exploring the multiple gardens.

From the moment they open at 9am, these gardens provide a peaceful escape from the rush of downtown Charlotte. With this general daytime admission pass, you can wander the grounds at your own pace and stay as long as you'd like, exploring the multiple gardens and trails that hug the banks of Lake Wylie. 

At the Four Seasons Garden, experience the symphony of colors and textures that make this a "garden for all seasons," before wandering over to the Cottage Garden with its collection of heirloom plants. Enjoy the gentle splash of water from the fountains inside the Canal Garden, which covers the length of a football field and changes colors with the seasons. 

Rest in the shade at the Crape Myrtle Grove before exploring the Orchid Conservancy, an 8,000 square foot, five-story structure that bursts with tropical plants, orchids, and is Carolina's only glass house. Children will love the tunnel fountain inside the Allee Garden, and the Scroll Garden and Ribbon Garden offer calming, swirling water features that weave through the colorful plants. In fall, over 500 azaleas burst to life in the Enconre Azalea Garden, and the West Garden, exquisite in white, is a popular venue for weddings.

Our professional Guides provide humorous commentary on the sights, sounds, and history. They will keep you entertained as you travel through the Queen City and pass by local sights. Come LAUGH AND LEARN with us!

Your PG-13 comedy tour departs at FIRST WARD PARK (301 E 7th St) by the Google Building and the Rail Road stop. Cross Road is College and 7th and will begin in Uptown, where you'll board the open-air bus and meet your comedic guide. 

Cruise along the streets to take in the sights and atmosphere as your guide humorously highlights the history, architecture, and entertainment of the city. As you travel through some of Charlotte's most interesting neighborhoods, including Uptown, Southend, Plaza Midwood, NoDa, and the Fourth Ward, listen as your tour guide puts a comedic spin on the sights, sounds and history of Charlotte.

About halfway through, you'll stop for a quick break. Feel free to bring your own beer and wine on board to enhance your experience.

Please note: Due to the nature of the jokes on the bus, this tour is intended for passengers 13 years of age and older. Those under the age of 13 are not permitted, and absolutely no babies are allowed on the bus due to safety issues (there are no seat belts, and the bus cannot hold car seats or strollers).
