Great tour of the city

We enjoyed our bus-ride through the city. Thomas, the catholic highschool 'actor' provided interesting and amusing historical stories. It was a great tourist experience!

We were in town to visit Carnegie Mellon and decide if Pittsburgh would be where my daughter would be in school for the next 4 years. We got up early to catch the 9:00am departure of the double decker red bus at its home base. It was a cool Sunday morning full of sunshine. We parked at the Ladel parking... More

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!!
