A Recent Review of this tour

Phil was incredibly accommodating and giving of his time. My daughter and I learned a great deal about Pittsburgh's steel history and how the economy has transformed. With trips to Homestead, the Henry Clay Frick mansion and a ride through the university district we were able to experience a great deal more of the city than we would have otherwise been able to (staying downtown without a car). Phil is knowledgeable and tailors his tour to suit the interests of his guests.
