The bus was comfortable and the tour speaker was knowledgeable and easily understood. The tour gave an excellent overview of the city. You could "hop on-Hop off if you wished and wait for the next bus. This was our first visit to Pittsburgh and we would highly recommend the Pittsburgh Tour Company.

We visited the Pittsburgh area in November for a long weekend. This tour was extremely informative. The only reason I cannot give it 5 stars is because we didn't have the hop on hop off option.

What a great way to see and hear about Pittsburgh. Our tour guide Michelle was a great host giving us good tips and showing her support for "The Steelers" 😄.

We loved this tour. Got a great informative tour of the whole city. We did not hop off as my gf had a broken foot but that's the way to go if you have all day. Alittle chilly on the top. Lol
