Very informative! Always a good idea to take a tour so you know where you may want to end up. We got off and on a couple times for things that we were interested in.

Michelle and Jimmy today were outstanding, I can't believe Michelle can remember all that detail and history on the top of her head and still be entertaining at the same time. I wanted to see Pittsburgh prior to starting work this week and this was the best way to do it. Reasonably priced also. I highly recommend

Showed us a lot of the city. It was a hot day and there was no water available for sale on board. Bring your own liquids for your safety. It's better than the tours of Boston. Not as good as the hop on/off tours of Dublin Ireland. The busses run an hour and fifteen minutes apart. Dublin was every fifteen... More

Born and reared in Pittsburgh, but moved away in 1958. Returned August 2015 for a week. This "Hop on and Off" tour was a highlight of the week. Included 21 stops with informative talk ranging from architecture to history and a lot of humor in between. Double-decker, British bus with just the sky above you. Goes through shopping districts (plural)... More

A very good tour. Covers all the high spots and buildings you've heard of. Crosses the "rivers" several times. Well worth the money.

Excellent way to see the city. Offers the option of hop on/hop off, or for $5 less stay on. Makes 21 stops and explains what there is to see at each. It was perfect weather for sitting on the open top and we were lucky enough to get seats up front so unobstructed views. Narrated with history and fun facts... More

My husband and I had a great day on the bus! We used the Hop-on Hop-off feature and it could not have been easier. We got on in the morning near Market Square (thank you, person who answered the phone, for being so patient and helpful!), and were welcomed by tour guide Michelle, who provided excellent commentary and advice. We... More

My boyfriend and I were in Pittsburgh the weekend of August 9th visiting my sister who recently got a new job there, and we decided to take the Double-Decker Bus tour to see more of the city during our trip! The tour was not only informative, but a delightful and engaging experience. Our guide Damian was entertaining and witty, and... More

This is a great way to see all the sites of the City. While the narrator could have been better all in all the entire family enjoyed the experience and the information provided was interesting.

This is an excellent way to start your exploration of Pittsburgh. Our tour guide, Joe, did a wonderful job describing the various neighborhoods, buildings and points of interest. I cannot imagine a better way to start exploring Pittsburgh.
