George gave such a great tour with tons of information about Pittsburg. To see someone takes so much pride of his own city is really something special. I would recommend George to anyone for the tour.

Our guide, George, did a wonderful job educating and entertaining us! Shared dozens of facts and anecdotes about both historical and modern day Pittsburgh. My 11 yr old twins enjoyed it as much as my husband and I did. Highly recommended!

Thank you for the review and especially for letting me know how the twins received it. I was happy I could share Pittsburgh with them even as my Dad shared it with me when I was their age.
