You can purchase tickets for our tours 2 ways: online or over the telephone. Buying tickets in advance is the only way to guarantee seating. Reservations are strongly suggested, as most tours do sell out. Tickets can be purchased at the time of boarding if seating is available.
Yes, but only beer and wine is allowed by North Carolina state law. Passengers may be asked to provide a valid ID to ensure they are 21 years of age or older. If you bring a cooler on-board the bus it must fit on your lap. All beverages must be closed when you board the bus and no open containers will be allowed off the bus. You may also purchase beer and wine inside Sam’s Quik Shop.
Seating is on a first come first served basis. If you have a ticket you have a seat and there isn’t a bad seat on the bus. If you have a group of 6 or more, arrive at least 30 minutes before departure time or call the office to make prior seating arrangements. If you do not make prior arrangements or arrive early there is a chance your party will be split up.
No, there are no seat belts on the bus. No babies are allowed on the bus. No refunds will be issued for tickets purchased for small children.
Each tour has a run time of about 90 minutes.
Our policy is NO REFUNDS for missed shows; however, we understand life happens please give us call for reschedules or credits for future rides.
There is no A/C, but there is a nice breeze once the bus starts moving. In inclement or cold weather, the bus does have windows we will close. The bus is heated during colder months, but we always recommend dressing for the weather.
The experience is not ‘hop on/hop off’. However, we do offer a 15 minute break midway through the tour.
Bull City Laughs can only accept service dogs as passengers. Tours are loud, spontaneous, at times unscripted and in your face. Dog’s don’t tend to love it for all those reasons. If you will be bringing your service dog, please call the office to make your reservation so we can make a note about your helpful pooch coming aboard!

We absolutely do! We can accommodate a variety of special requests (family reunions, Birthday parties, out of town guests, corporate, conventions, festivals, parades, grand openings and more).
In general dress for the job you want not the job you have, but for the tour dress for success with the weather; Bull City Laughs is an open-air tour bus when the weather is 60 degrees or above. Windows will be closed if it is cold or rainy. Dress in whatever manner you wish on the bus, and during your entire vacation in Durham!
