Today we saw the City of Pittsburgh from atop an authentic London double decker bus and highly recommend it for any first time visitor. Our guide Damian and driver Raul explained 21 of the most interesting and famous areas of the city. They obviously enjoy the passengers and bring in many interesting bits of information not just reading from a... More

The guides are funny and knowledgeable. We learned a lot we didn't know about the city, even though my husband grew up on the South Side. We stopped and experienced the Incline, then hopped back on the bus to the Science Center and then the Heinz History Center. Finally we hopped back on the bus one last time to return... More

We only had a day in town, and so after drinking in the view from Mt Washington we joined the tour near the Heinz History Centre. It was great to be able to pay on board, when you're on the road in unfamiliar territory it's not always easy to call or get online. To get tickets. We were immediately made... More

We really enjoyed the tour provided by the Pittsburgh Tour company. Tom and Vince were friendly and accommodating. Tom provided some great tidbits about Pittsburgh. Vince navigated Pittsburgh's difficult streets masterfully. It was a great way to get an introduction to the city.

The best way to discover any city is by a double decker bus tour like the one offered here ... Pitt. Our tour guide, Tom, was absolutely fantastic, entertaining and knowledgable. Hop-on hop-off tour may be a bit awkward cause buses run one hour appart and may not give the opportunity to finish your tour where you started. In any... More

Only visiting Pittsburgh overnight so to get best out of it we in the limited time we had we booked the basic city tour. Our guides were Tom and trainee guide Derrian (my apologies if I've got the name wrong). Both were informative and entertaining. The tour covered the history and sights of both Pittsburgh and Oakland and lasts approx... More

We got the hop off/on option mainly so we could get off and walk around the Point State Park area and not worry about the downtown parking, and then finish the tour. They were running every hour and fifteen minutes that day. Our pickup point was almost directly across the street from our hotel - they have a good route... More

Pittsburgh's best kept secret...seriously! I did the 2 1/2 hour super tour while my vehicle was getting detailed on 6/4/15. I could not have made a better choice in how to spend my time today. Our tour guide Michelle was truly the BEST!!! She made the tour fun, and kept all the tourist totally engaged while providing "amazing historical facts"... More

Meeting in the beautiful city of Pittsburgh for our first annual Sister Trip, the seven of us made this our first event. What a wonderful experience! Our very animated tour guide, Tom, and trusty driver, Vin, made our trip atop the double decker tour bus a fun way to see the city, learn the history and stop at places we... More

...although our hop-on-hop-off experience lasted for a full day. The guides are knowledgeable (because they have a great script from the company) and funny (ditto). Seeing this amazing city from the top of the bus is an experience that you could not get otherwise. Highly recommended (which you already know because I rated it "excellent").
