"One of the Top Ten Cityscape Views in the World" -USA Today


This brief Tour is designed for those with a very limited amount of time who still want to visit Pittsburgh's "Must See" attraction. It is by far the better of the 'Burgh's two cable cars: better view, better exhibits, better gift shop, and community-preserved. I will take you to the valley floor station and then accompany you as we ascend Mt. Washington together. Along the way you will discover that Pittsburgh has no hills (?!?), that the Mississippi River does NOT flow to the Gulf of Mexico, that Pittsburgh was once the third richest city in the world, how that wealth enhances life in the city today, and, to quote John Glenn, "The view is tremendous. "

A Recent Review of this tour

George was a great host. I truly recommend taking one of his tours. Very informative and can let you know about the real Pittsburgh. I have my "Yinzer" magnet.
