This two hour narrated tour travels through the South Side, Oakland, and North Shore neighborhoods surrounding the downtown area, in addition to also touring downtown and culminating with the mandatory spectacular ride up Mt Washington to ride the incline with a majestic view of the city. As a long-time Pittsburgh area resident, I found it interesting and accurate in it's... More

This is a two hour tour of the city. The tour guide was very informative, entertaining, and pleasant. I highly recommend this tour upon arrival in the city.

Leave your car behind, take the 2 hour tour, see places and receive informative, numerous anecdotes from the drivers. The seats lack a little padding, but at least your feet won't be worn out as they would be if you had attempted to cover just 10% of where the tour went. $27 well spent.

The tour guide was very informative without being "cute". I downgraded the tour because visibility from the trolley was very limited. Instead of one solid pane of glass, each window had metal bar 2-3" high right in the middle of the window. Then printed in big block red letters above the bar, on almost every window, were warnings "EMERGENCY EXIT".... More

My husband and I were both raised in the Pittsburgh area and have always been proud to call Pittsburgh our hometown. We have not been downtown for decades (except for going to Benedum or Rivers Casino), so this tour gave us a chance to see the updates to this beautiful city. The trolley was air-conditioned which was comfortable on the... More

Took this two-hour trolley ride with a group from a conference. The speaker had an extremely high level of knowledge about the city, especially architecturally. She talked about everything we passed! The trolley's seats are wooden benches so not very comfortable. But it was air conditioned!

This is one of the things you HAVE to do in Pittsburgh. You go up on top of Mount Washington and from the top, there are great views of the city. There's also places to eat at the top and the bottom!

The tour started late due to the narrator being late, however once it got on it's way, it was pretty good. Narrator was very informative and it covered a great deal of the city. The bus bounces you around, so be prepared for a bouncy ride.

We grew up close to Pittsburgh but were curious to see what Molly's had to offer during my sister's birthday celebration. Wow, we were given an extensive tour of some of the neighborhoods surrounding Pittsburgh with a very knowledgeable tour guide (Maureen I think). And we each learned more about the city that we love. The guide took her time... More
