What people are saying about Pittsburgh

I was initially worried about taking a walking tour (I am very out of shape), but it ended up being a really nice pace. Kane is an awesome guide and made sure we had plenty of time to really look at things along the way. He mentioned a few nearby places to eat and shop as we were close to them, and added in several other tidbits about the city.

Informative and fun with some jaw-dropping architecture and good historical notes. My husband was game but less than enthusiastic about a city walking tour. By the end he was thoroughly enjoying it. I loved it from beginning to end.

Unfortunately it rained the day of our tour, but Corey was still an amazing tour guide. She did her best to find areas where we could be inside or covered from the rain and was just as enthusiastic even in the rain.

Our Guide, CORRIE, was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable, fun and very interesting to listen to. Our group really enjoyed the Walking Tour of Pittsburgh.

our guide was great and carried on even in the rain!
