Hi! My name is Todd Abrams, and I’m the owner of Barley Bus Tours. I love KC. I was born and raised here, and I love showing off all the best parts of the city.


I started this company back in late 2015 because I wanted to do something that would let me show my love for KC by sharing it with others. And what better way to share your love than to take people on an amazing tour around the city?


If you’re on the fence about whether or not you should book a bus or a tour, please give us a call at 816-533-3090. I’d love to talk with you personally about how much fun our tours are and what we offer!

AKA Chuck Norris stunt double! I’ve lived in Kansas City for about 10 years, moving here from western Kansas and attending KU! Now the only thing that we raise is cane. You don’t need the sun or rain. Just some neon lights saying some ice-cold beer. If you know the reference, you’ll have a great time. I have a passion for old cars and limos. I enjoy the outdoors and good ‘ole country music.

Hey there! I’m a Central Kansas native who has lived in KC for around 8 years. I’m nuts about the local food and beverage scene, and I love that I get to share my favorite spots with you all! When I’m not working my non-profit 9-5 or hanging out on the Barley Bus, I love digging in record store crates and finding hidden hiking gems around the city. Go Chiefs and go Barley Bus!

I grew up in Austin, TX, and have lived in Kansas City ever since I finished my tour of duty in the Army 30 years ago.  I have been married to my beautiful wife Kelley for 26 years and blessed with 2 awesome adult children, Carrie -23, and Joey -21.  We love so many things about this town including the live music scene, the many breweries, distilleries, wineries, and of course The Chiefs, Royals, and Sporting KC! KC is also the only place you will find Barley Bus and grateful to be part of such an awesome team where I get to meet amazing people from all walks of life. Have fun, be safe and Drink Local!!



Hello Explorers! I’m a local girl, born and raised in KCK; I’ve lived in Kansas City my whole life and am passionate about this city! My favorite tours to lead are the History of Kansas City tour and an Urban Murals tour. When I’m not leading tours, or working my other job at Children’s Mercy Hospital, I’m busy in my garden, riding my bike, playing with our new grandbaby, or traveling the world (60 countries visited and counting).

Ready to come explore with me? See you on the bus!



A modern day Madman, I worked at a notable Kansas City-based ad agency and have led marketing for other companies. When I’m not sharing hidden gems on a tour, I enjoy a grilled meal on my patio with a glass of wine, craft beer or bourbon. I’m also a judge for the American Royal World Series of BBQ, enjoy disc golf, pickle ball and riding a gravel trail. My claim to fame is winning a Dolly Madison pie eating contest when I was eight years old.
