legally, you cannot use b1 for personal trip
upon landing the immigration officer may ask the nature of this trip for business purposes and approximate time frame of stay required
however, you can always explain that this particular trip is person and be completely honest with the officer
pray and he should get the stay

Does it say B1 or B1/B2 on the visa?
Are there any annotations on the visa such as purpose or company name?

You can use that visa for personal tourist visit. I don't see any reason why not.
