If you are visiting Pittsburgh this is a great thing to do first to help you get your bearings and plan the rest of your stay. I had the "On/Off" option. So I got off to have lunch and explore at one point. Later in the tour I knew that I wanted to see the "Mattress Factory" so I got... More

The tour was awesome, well worth the money. Our tour guide Darien was very knowledgeable and entertaining. There is so much to see and do in Pittsburgh, with this tour you'll see so much and it will help you decide where to spend your time while visiting.

Narration from Damian was top notch and very informative. Got to Stop #1 early to get the front seats. Perfect view and great way to see the city and learn its history. A must do if you've never been in the city before.

A cold, windy saturday in Pittsburgh and we had a blast on the Double Decker bus! The view is wonderful - a quick tour of all the highlights of Pittsburgh with a little comedy thrown in. The inside is warmer, but not as nice of a view. Ask for Damian - He is a hoot!

I love doing a Hop-On-Hop-Off tour when I am a first-time visitor in a new major city. And this tour was among the best!! We boarded at Stop #13 downtown and did the entire circuit. I don't believe we could have enjoyed the experience any more, unless it had been slightly warmer. The narrator/guide did a fantastic job of telling... More

We decided to just to the tour where you stay on the bus as the weather was a little cool and we had a car anyway if we wanted to return to some of the highlights. We started our tour at Stop number 1 as I had emailed and asked about parking and they had responded quickly saying there was... More

Took the bus tour and heinz center combo package. Everything was great! Convenient way to hit all the sites and avoid parking. Darran gave a colorful and interesting narrative of local history and fun facts while Jim navigated skillfully through the streets and construction areas. Definitely a must do!

We picked up the tour at about 1:00 by Heinz Field. The guides, Darien and Melissa were very imformative and interjected many great comments. We did the hop on hop off, and got off in the Strip District to have lunch at Primanti Bros. Having grown up in the Pittsburgh area, I still learned a lot about the city. I... More

Whether you're with your sweetheart, or the whole family this is a great way to learn all about our beautiful city! They are all seasonal though so make sure you check them out in the summer time! Even the fall is beautiful! The ducky tour is the best for kids and soooo much fun!!

Years ago, I had never thought of doing a bus tour. But then, it dawned on me.....what a great way to see the main points of the city and get a complete overview. So now, we do bus tours. Have done Chicago, Philadelphia and Glasgow, Scotland. We just added Pittsburgh to our list. Our driver had a few road blocks,... More
