Fun and informative
Carol_M

This was a fun tour with lots of information. Our guide, John, knew a lot about the city and what he didn’t know he looked up. He was friendly and helpful. My only complaint if you could call it a complaint is that I wished the buses ran more often which would make it easier to hop on and off knowing another bus would be along shortly. Because they were only running 2 buses at a time it made me not want to get off at some stops knowing it would be over an hour till the next bus. The buses were comfortable and clean. They have a cute little gift shop and I highly recommend buying a snack and drink there before starting the tour. I should say we upgraded to the hop on and off option because parking in the city is difficult and can be expensive. Also driving in the city can be challenging for out-of-Towners. The tour was well worth the price.

Need a restroom!

Many people who go on tours are traveling from out of town. Restrooms are a must and need. Not everyone is able to walk the equivalent of a block for relief. It seems there needs to be a separate bus for people to hop on and hop off. Guide was pleasant and informative. I think some kinks need working out.

Love to Hop on and Hop Off
Gary_h

We have found over the years that a bus tour early in our visit to a city helps us get the lay of the land and a little background information. We had two guides [from hopping on and off]. They were full of information and hints, funny and enjoyable to listen to. Pittsburgh came to life for us. In the end, we were actually able to hop off very near our hotel.

Tour guide was excellent, liked that audio was clear without the use of headphones. The star of the show was Pittsburgh itself; What a geographically and historically interesting city! The tour was two hours long (!) and there actually was that much to see.

Great tour, but learn correct history
Brian_S

Enjoyed the tour a lot. But our guide said Strip District named for strip mine at that location at one time. Researched to learn more, found out that's wrong info! (It's so named because it's a long, thin strip of land between the river and a mountainside). Still worthwhile, but history points should be checked. Would have been a 5 star review otherwise.

The tour was great. I didn’t realize that the hop on hop off was an option at first. Just the tour was great for my mom who has knees and back issues. The tour guid was very knowledgeable.

I have taken sightseeing bus trips in other cities. This was An enjoyable tour. We had a Friendly bus driver and an excellent guide is what made this a great experience. Our guide had a ‘radio voice’ and appeared to really enjoy his work! As I am a native Pittsburgher, it was great to see the city in a different light. I would definitely recommend this tour to any local. Next time I would venture to take the hop on hop off tour and take advantage of exploring the city in more detail at the designated attractions. The brochure offers other tours of interest that I may take in the future.

Patty the narrator and the driver whose name I don’t recall were both very good in their respective roles. Very knowledgeable and added humor while still allowing time for questions and encouraged exchange of information!

The guide Jim was very funny and has a wealth of knowledge about the city. The Bus Driver Mike was excellent as well. The staff at their building were very friendly and professional. I think the tour is a can't miss experience if you want to take in the city! 5 star experience.

A MUST DO!

My advice is to book the hop on-hop off tour the first day you arrive. You can get off the bus at many locations and explore several parts of the city without paying Uber/Lyft. And reboard every 45 minutes. You can literally use the bus all day long. Just return to the drop off point and on to your next stop. The tour guides are funny and know all the history of Pittsburg. Great way to spend the day!!

Pittsburgh Cliff Notes for non yinzers! Do It!
Craig_P

In town for an extended weekend and college visits at Pitt/Duquesne. We put the tour on our Day 2 plan when we realized how much we didn't know about what's here, where it is and what to do first. The tour was expertly narrated, punctuated with enough local understanding and flavor to make it simultaneously educational and entertaining. We subsequently did the Duquesne Incline, Warhol museum, dinners on the strip and Gaucho Parilla, walking tours of both campuses and we still haven't satisfied a small amount of the interest that our two hours on the roof of the big red bus ginned up. Highly recommended, early in your visit !!
