George is getting consideration as the best city tour guide ever! How he was able to share the history of Pittsburgh and unique facts and show us points of interest were amazing. Loved how George customized the tour to focus on sports and meet our areas of interest.

Our guide George, enthusiastically shared his knowledge and love of Pittsburgh; his enthusiasm was infectious, We learned so much about the Steel City's past and present, all presented in an easy-going, inclusive style. Others were drawn to his talk, too. Teasingly, I asked George to give us the best tour of Pittsburgh ever. He delivered in spades. George provided an extraordinary introduction to Pittsburgh.

This review is astonishing, perplexing, and disappointing. All three of you said you loved the Tour at the end and you even gave me a tip. You only booked and paid for the one hour Tour, but I gave you two hours as we wasted time when your travel companions disappeared at the upper station of the Duquesne Incline. You might recall you and I were both searching the area trying to find them. I gave you twice the Tour you should have received. I'm sorry you were bummed out, but I certainly don't understand how you can say that.

Great way to learn about the city of Pittsburgh
Denis

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.
