Great way to learn about the city of Pittsburgh

George was very engaging and wonderful. He made us believers in the value of Pittsburg and showed us the city in a way we would never have seen on our own. He was extremely passionate about Pittsburg and had so many stories to share that kept us interested in the tour. We truly enjoyed this tour, especially and specifically the Duquesne Incline where he shared so much about Pittsburghs rich history. If I could offer constructive advice, please don't state this is a tour in a luxury vehicle as we were in a regular minivan. And if the Duquesne Incline is a part of this tour for everyone (and I highly recommend it), please be sure the cost of the round trip ticket for each passenger is included with this tour. Otherwise, this tour was fabulous.

We really enjoyed our tour. The guide was very accommodating. The only little issue was that the tour was in a car. There were four of us and I sat in the middle of the backseat so the boys could see out the windows the best. I missed some of the things pointed out in the down town area.

George was great at bringing history to life and even got the teenagers engaged! His old school personal style was refreshing.

Engaging teenagers is always a challenge as well as an opportunity. I'm glad I succeeded with your daughters. And I've already shared "Ampelmannchen" with several folks. Thank you and your entire family for so many unique insights and for letting me show you Pittsburgh.. Thank you for the review.

George was a VERY enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We learnt a lot about the city and it’s history and highly recommend this tour with George. Even better with a little cleaner car
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Thank you for the review. I apologize for the state of the car. I wonder if it might be related to the folks on the Tour just before I picked you up (interior) or the intermittent rain we've had recently (exterior). Thanks for the heads-up. I can always do better.
