I only had a few hours in Pittsburgh yesterday morning, and I LOVE Hop-On, Hop-Off tours. This one was by far one of the best I have ever done. Katie (my tour guide) was enthusiastic, friendly, and willing to answer any questions. Raul was a great driver- courteous and patient. Being a warm and beautiful weekend day (and a baseball... More

My husband and I took my young cousin on this tour. We hopped on and off several times. Our tour guide and driver were very friendly and informative. I felt like part of the family! We purchased a package that let us ride the incline and visit the Aviary. It was a wonderful day. We loved the tour guide on... More

Be very careful if you are selecting a location that is not home base for the initial pick-up. If you do, and you plan to hop off and hop back on, just be sure to get back on one of the buses two or more pick up times past the final pick up. I was not told this at all,... More

The double decker bus tour was great. Both the driver and the tour guide were very friendly. The guide, Katie, was easy to listen to and very informative. We learned a lot about the beautiful city of Pittsburgh. Thanks for the great tour!!!

I am a Pittsburgher who treated out- of- town guests to the double- decker bus tour. What an enjoyable time! Katie was exceptional. She had so many interesting facts. Even though I have lived here my whole life, I still learned a few things about our beautiful city. Such an enjoyable way to spend the day! Our guests loved it... More

Pittsburgh is a great place for a bus tour: Lots of interesting and varied sites, reasonable traffic, and manageable size. We boarded the bus at the Heinz Museum and made a complete loop without hopping off but went back later to stroll along the Strip. Toward the end, we were the only passengers so we had the friendly and knowledgeable... More
