Welcome to Banjo Billy’s Bus Tours
Saddle-up for 90 Minutes of Unforgettable Stories!
We have Plexiglas windows and powerful heaters on both buses. Don’t fear the cold!
Banjo Billy’s gives history tours of Boulder and Denver, as well as brewery tours in Denver, from an old school bus tricked out to look like a traveling hillbilly shack. Hear ghost tales, crime stories, and history while sitting on a couch, recliner or saddle as the bus rolls through the core of the cities. You won’t forget this bus tour!
Although the bus follows the same route every time, no two tours are alike. Passengers get to vote at multiple stops for what they want to hear about – whether it’s a ghost story, a bizarre tall tale, or historical facts. The tour is 90 minutes long, but we guess you’ll be hoping for more.

We were totally right.” Whether you’re just visiting Denver on vacation or a long-time resident, you will like our tour.
Denver Brewery Tours
-Tours Start Every Thursday, April 30, 2015! With one special St. Paddy’s Brewery tour on March 19, 2015!
Have you ever wanted an insider’s tour of Renegade Brewing Company, Beryl Beer Co., Lowdown Brewery or Prost Brewing? Banjo Billy is now offering Denver Brewery Tours! Our tour includes visits to 3 breweries spaced out over 3 hours, with 3 pints of beer included. The cost? Just $40. The tour runs on Thursday starting April 30, 2015. The tour depart from the Big Blue Bear at the Colorado Convention Center on the corner of 14th & Stout at 6:00 p.m. . Hop on our bus, learn all about Denver’s brewing scene, drink some beers, and leave the driving to Banjo.
For a very reasonable fee, you can arrange for a private tour in one or both of our buses for 25 to 50 people. After the tour is over, you can reserve our bus for additional time and we’ll drive you around Denver or Boulder. You can do a pub crawl or just enjoy the sites of the city for less than the price of a limousine, and private tour groups can even bring their own cooler along with their favorite beverages on our bus.
If you have a large group, or if you would like to celebrate a special occasion, hold an office party, or just have the whole darn bus to yourself, this is the option for you.
