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.

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.

Informative and fun! Our guide was really nice and bubbly too.

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