This is a great way to see the sites. We were did the hop on - off option. It works great if you start early in the day. I would recommend this to anyone staying in Pittsburgh for a couple of days.

Great tour. The only complaint I have is there is a roughly hour and fifteen minute wait if you get off at a stop for the next bust to come so you need to be right on time. No enjoying any longer or wait another hour and fifteen. Most hop on hop off buses come every 15 minutes or so,... More

Best way to see city tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city. I learned so much about the city especially how many bridges and how 3 rivers connected and a 4th river was underneath the 3 rivers. Haunted tour was wonderful. Learn so much about different haunted sightings and history of how the legend of each haunted killings.

The double-decker bus tour offered by Pittsburgh Tour Company is absolutely fantastic. Our tour guide, Tom, was a born & bred Pittsburgher, and really knew his stuff. The information he provided on the different ethnicities and cultures that comprise this multi-faceted city was very interesting and informative without being self-righteous or know-it-all-ish. There can be no better way to see... More

I and my family enjoyed the "haunted Bus" tour, through the city of Pittsburgh at night. The interesting ghostly stories and atmosphere were wonderful. Looking forward with another group of friends & family to ride again. It was a pleasure riding the double decker bus.

But based on the gentleman in the ticket booth at Station Square it must be a great tour. Missed the first bus by ten or fifteen minutes and couldn't stay around long enough to make the second tour, Steve the guy working in the booth shut the booth down and went out on the street to try and chase the...

Wonderful tour of a wonderful City. Our Guide, Katie - and Driver Tim, did a super job in showing us the amazing City of Pittsburgh. We particularly enjoyed hearing the facts and tidbits that only locals would know - the stuff you don't find in guidebooks. We'll be back, and will tour again. Thank you!!

Let me echo another reviewer's comment, Tom and Tim were quite the entertaining duo. We hopped on and off at a couple places so did not get the full T&T experience. With that said they were running three buses the day we went. Had three different guides and all were knowledgeable and entertaining. Lots to see and learn. Only drawback... More

Tom and Tim, what a duo!!! It's not your average bus tour!!! Knowledgeable, witty and engaging!!! We went all over Pittsburgh and found many wonderful spots to revisit on our own. Definitely recommend Tom and Tim!!! We took the 1:06 PM from Station Square after the Incline trip to top of Mt. Washington.
