Tour was awesome! The guide (Kane) was personable, knowledeable, a great story teller and had a good sense of humour. My sister and I were the only ones on the tour so had the opportunity to ask a lot of questions. Also because we had been in Pittsburgh for a time, already had seen some of the tour features so were able to explore a few places that strayed from the regular route. Thoroughly enjoyable!

Our guide, Ken, is very knowledgeable and well-mannered. We learned a lot about Pittsburgh's history, culture, and current state during the walking tour. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wishes to learn more about Pittsburgh!

We had a great tour with Kane. He knows so much! Told us a lot about the history, the buildings, life in Pittsburgh. Gave us tips where to go, what to eat, what to see... This tour is highly recommended!

Kane was a terrific guide- terrific introduction to Pittsburgh and the amazing dahntahn architecture.

Excellent experience, the guide was very good and we learned a lot. Highly recommended
