We started the night with the tour and some delicious bbq. The bus wasn't anything fancy but very comfortable and the guides were warm and friendly.

Kids got us this tour as a gift. We enjoyed the food and the tour included some nice KC history, as well.

Had an excellent time on the KC BBQ tour. Our guide Bethanie was very very well informed and made the tour very interesting. The BBQ at the 4 stops we made was also very good. Especially liked the burnt ends at L.C's. Great experience.

Both the driver and tour guide both worked hard at all of the stops. We stopped at multiple locations and ate great BBQ at every stop. By the end of the day, you are completely stuffed.

I also enjoyed the historic commentary on the city and the fun atmosphere on the bus. LC's was also an enjoyable stop, with excellent fries although the sauce is sweet to my taste. The issue I...
