The Most Unique Home in the World
Fallingwater stands as one of the greatest architectural triumphs of the 20th Century. Let me take you to its location astride Bear Run in the Laurel Highlands of the Allegheny Mountains. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for Pittsburgh businessman Edgar Kaufmann, Fallingwater provides a "Serendipitous Synergy" unequalled in the world. Along the way you will learn the story of America's First Superhighway : the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
Six hours from your starting point to the end of the Tour. If you are starting from Downtown Pittsburgh, Greetree, or Oakland we will take the Parkway Easy to America's First Superhighway - The Pennsylvania Turnpike. Heading East we will cross over the first range of the Allegheny Mountains to the Laurel Highlands. Then it's down through Indian Creek Valley to the entrance of Fallingwater. We will return via the same route.
The ride will be filled with an extensive narration in both directions regarding Pittsburgh, Western Pennsylvania, and even the history of the highway.
A meal stop may be made for an additional charge. There will be a surcharge for those Tours starting from a point west of Greentree as it is in the direction AWAY from the route to Fallingwater.

A great day with George ! An excellent guide and a very nice man. Thanks a lot for the tour, the very rich narrative about Pittsburgh and the Fallingwater house. We appreciate the bonus : the Pittsburgh panorama and the Simon and Garfunkel's song "America" (we are listening it just right now !). Mille mercis ! Elodie et Bernard
