It is recommended as an overview to the city to provide helpful suggestions on just about everything Pittsburgh. A pickup at your hotel and a stop atop beautiful Mt Washington for a walk on Grandview Avenue. You will be returned to your hotel with a clear idea of what attractions you wish to visit again and a better understanding of how to function like a real Pittsburgher.


The exact route will Depend upon where you are located. the tour will include different local city neighborhoods such as: Oakland ( home of the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon), Shady Side, Squirrel Hill, Bloomfield, Downtown, the North Shore, West End, South Side and Mt Washington.
