George was a great tour guide. His love for the city is obvious and his knowledge of its history is deep. He makes the tour interactive with binders of information and photos. We stopped several times to get out of the car for a closer look or experience. We really enjoyed it and learned a lot about the city. Great tour!

Historic and scenic tour of Pittsburgh

We learned a great deal about the history of Pittsburgh, and saw some amazing architecture. George made great use of pictures to show us Pittsburgh past and present. There was a LOT about sports- but that's part of the culture of Pittsburgh. Just a caution- there was no access to a restroom during the tour, and George was a little impatient when I asked about it.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Thank you for the review. To be honest, I don't remember the conversation regarding the restroom. I can always find one somewhere.

During our time in Pittsburgh, all we could talk about was the tour. We really enjoyed ourselves and soaked in a lot of awesome information about Pittsburgh. George was also a highlight of the tour. The coolest city on earth!

Horrible! The guy George was 30min late even getting to the location to pick us up. He ruined my grandmother's 90th bday

I booked this tour for my grandmother's 90th bday. It was me, my grandmother and my aunt. George, the guy who was supposed to take us on the tour was 30min late even showing up. So my poor grandmother was standing and waiting for an extended amount of time. Then, he shows up in an older model vehicle, not a tour bus or shuttle. We were not getting into a complete stranger's car!. When you run a business, you shouldn't have your customers waiting for you,you should be waiting for them. I would not recommend this tour to anyone!

Loved the stories George told! Learned so many cool things about Pittsburgh! My father has traveled to over 35 countries and taken multiple tours and he was so impressed with George’s thorough preparation!

Thank you for the review, Eleni. Given your father's travels in the past, his compliments meant a lot to me. It was a real pleasure to show both of you the City.

We were taking our 12 year old grandson. The trip to Pittsburgh was his Christmas gift from us and an attempt to share some of my early life with him. When asked what his favorite part of the tour was his response was George, the tour guide. George literally went out of his way to make our trip perfect. Tommy, a Clevelander through and through came away with a great impression and knowledge of Pittsburgh because of George’s enthusiasm, knowledge, and personality. I would recommend this tour very very highly.

Thank you for the review Ike. Glad I was able to contribute to your visit to Pittsburgh beyond our time together. Looked up the USS Trumpeter. Fascinating history. Seeing you traveling with your Dad brought back fond memories of me doing the same. Lucky us.

A Day With George!

I learned more about Pittsburgh than I thought there was to learn! Even my teenaged grandchildren enjoyed the day. George is phenomenal!!! He truly knows Pittsburgh and is very eager to share his knowledge. He was wonderful with the kids and could easily relate to them. I was afraid the kids would be bored but once we got back into our own car, they couldn't stop talking about George and what they learned. He told them that he was going to convince them that Pittsburgh was the coolest town, and he did. So much so, that the 23 year old is talking about moving here!!! Thank you, George.

Reviews like yours make my work so satisfying, knowing that the impact our Tour had on the young people in your Group was similar to the impact my Dad's stories had on me when he would take me on truck Trips around the country. Thank you for asking me to be your Guide and for making my day with the review. Warmest regards to your entire crew.

George DeBolt was a fantastic tour guide. His tour felt like we were on a game show with excitement in every part of the tour. He was so entertaining and enthusiastic, a natural. We learned so much about the city, sports, architecture, and its history. George was truly a special treat. He sincerely puts his heart and soul into this wonderful experience. We will never forget it. Thank you for making our first trip to Pittsburgh so memorable.

Personalized Pittsburgh Tour

We had an amazing experience with George DeBolt during our Pittsburgh tour! We traveled from MA for our 11 year old nephew to go to his first Steeler’s game. We wanted him to see a little bit of the city before the game. George was incredible! He personalized the tour so my nephew could gain a better insight on historical sites in Pittsburgh, phenomenal architecture and the history of Pittsburgh sports and the famous professional athletes from the city. He educated him on “The Immaculate Reception”. He took us to “Yinzers” to get authentic Steeler’s souvenirs. My nephew was talking about George all night, the next day and on the ride home ….”George was a wealth of knowledge”… lol…from the mouth of babes! Do NOT hesitate to book with George, he’s a wonderfully kind man, who loves his city and has so much to share!

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.
