Great walking tour by a personable and knowledgeable local guide. We saw and learned a lot. This was our first visit to Pittsburgh, so we wanted a good overview and introduction on Day One, and we got it. The city exceeded our expectations, I guess I assumed it was a dirty old steel town, but actually it is clean and beautiful.

Callie’s was an awesome tour guide. She really knows her history, sports and architecture. We covered a lot of ground and even went a little over time which was optional but so valuable. She is so knowledgeable about Pittsburgh; she can answer any questions. The time flew by. Definitely worth the time!

Corrie was a great tour guide - especially with 5 people on the tour who don't drink whiskey. She was very knowledgeable and kept it entertaining. We enjoyed hearing about the history of whiskey in Pittsburgh and about all the famous Pittsburgh townspeople (and the jagoffs)! Two thumbs up. The hot toddy to start the tour was delightful and I really enjoyed the coffee whiskey at the end and I'm not a coffee drinker. She pointed out several historic buildings built by Carnegie, Frick and others. We also learned the right way to pronounce 'Carnegie!' I can't wait to come back to Pittsburgh and take another tour with my family. Thanks for an enjoyable chilly afternoon in Pittsburgh! Only bummer was that the William Penn Hotel's speakeasy isn't open.
