Party boats & ‘groovy’ buses: new summer tours launch around Boise


It’s likely you’ve seen the Boise Trolley Tours, which has been around for several decades, or group bikes pedaling through the streets of Downtown Boise.

But this summer, there are even more ways for locals and visitors alike to see the City of Trees.

Feelin’ Groovy Tours is offering several different types of tours in its newly restored 1976 Volkswagen bus named ‘Georgie’.

“Georgie’s very gregarious, and everyone loves her groovy graphics,” the tour’s website notes. “She loves her guests to smile and laugh a lot, participate in sing-a-longs if they feel inclined, and take lots of photos.”

Tours include tours of the city, the Red Chair Lavender Farm, or wineries in Garden City, Boise, and Eagle. Costs range anywhere from $59 (for tours available to kids) to $132. The bus can accommodate 2-8 people.

Pedal party boat

Another tour rolling in is Pedal and Pint’s new boat tour on Lucky Peak.

“A pedal boat is a super fun way to get friends together on the lake, just as a bike bar is a great way to experience downtown,” owner Mike Thomas said who also has a bike bar that rolls through Downtown Boise.

The tour hour boat tour can accommodate up to 12 people. The $799 fee (or $65/person) includes a shuttle bus up to the water.

“Lucky Peak is the obvious choice as its the closest body of water to the city center and has a ton of floating docks to stop at,” Thomas said. “It’s only 5 miles from town where as any other lake would require a much further drive.”

The pedal party boat tours are available Wednesday through Sunday.
