The name of this tour says it all...

The name of this tour says it all... If you only take one tour of Pittsburgh, this needs to be it. George is awesome! I enjoy tours like this because who's better to show you around than a local? I decided on this tour last minute (one day to the next) & got in touch with George right after booking. He asked questions to understand what sights we were interested in (architecture, baseball, history) & he came prepared to customize the tour just for us. "My task is to convince you that Pittsburgh is the coolest city in the world!" George picked us up from our hotel across from PNC Park; first stop was Duchesne Incline, where he told us the lively history of Pittsburgh. He drove us to various sights, stopping when possible for photo ops. We ended with great food and shopping recommendations and let me tell you, he succeeded in convincing us that Pittsburgh is really the coolest!

Pittsburg Sights and Culture, A special experience!!
, Apr 2021
What a trip!! This journey of knowing and seeing Pittsburg has been a super existing one and one with many a stories and surprises we don’t know about. George, our tour guide is brilliant. He brings you along this Journey showing you not just the landmarks but the rich history behind it. Some landmarks , and history hidden on small memory posts, along the streets of those landmarks. He takes you along the journey of how the city shaped from the early days of a dusty bowl to steel empire of some of the men who made America to what it is now. He also travels with you around the city and it’s cultural history of cinema, theatre and architecture. As we went around the University and Oakland areas, he being a proud Pittsburg resident also pitched why my Kids should make Pitts their University of choice. An unsigned self advocate/ambassador of the Univ and the city.😃 My kids and better half we also immersed in this journey and enjoyed every one bit. We were extremely glad that we we shown around the city by George. Super experience. !! And to top it, even on short notice, he arranged for us things that only he could..and if he is reading this he will understand what I am saying. 😃 - Rajesh, Vrushali, Keya and Neel

George has a wealth of knowledge about his city. His enthusiasm and love for Pittsburgh comes through every minute of the tour. He took us to places we wouldn't have found on our own and told fascinating stories about the city and its history. His tour helped my son decide to attend U Pitt!
Best tour of Pittsburgh!!

George is absolutely the best! The amount of Pittsburgh facts he is able to convey in a couple of hours is remarkable. Make this tour with George a priority if you visit Pittsburgh, your trip will be much improved and more meaningful. Thank you George!!
