Our Roots

KC Double Decker Tours simply began with married couple, Karl and Bethanie Schemel's, love for their now hometown. Born and raised in Chicago, where he worked on his father's guided boat tour business and entertained stories of his grand father's Chicago Fire Department glory, Karl moved to Lawrence, KS in 1998 to attend college at the University of Kansas. After completing his undergrad, Karl made his way to Kansas City and joined the Kansas City Fire Department. That was when his intrigue with Kansas City began.

Raised in Wichita, KS and with family ties to Kansas City, Bethanie made her journey to Kansas City in 2005 after completing her undergrad at Emporia State University. Since she was a young girl, Bethanie has been enjoying Kansas City and all it has to offer.

"We have had the opportunity to watch and experience the growth of Kansas City for many years. We love being able to raise our family in a big city with a small town feel. Our hope is that each guest will leave the tour with the same love and appreciation for Kansas City that we have." - Karl and Bethanie Schemel
