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. A meal stop may be made for an additional charge. On the other hand, we can stop for ice cream at no extra expense.

A Recent Review of this tour

If you want to know the true Pittsburgh from an insider George is your guide! This walking encyclopedia on Pittsburgh's wonderful history kept our family of three (including our 12 year old son) entertained on our 1 hr journey for the city center to Fallingwater. George was punctual, friendly and accommodating.
