Pittsburgh Private Tours
There’s no better way to see Pittsburgh than with a private guide to show you the most interesting spots and share their knowledge about the city. Get to know the hidden secrets and fascinating history lying around every corner of downtown, take the Duquesne Incline up Mt. Washington for the best view of the city, see the old Heinz factory, drive up the steepest public street in America, and explore all the coolest neighborhoods of Pittsburgh! Go to the top of the Cathedral of Learning, the tallest educational building in the Western hemisphere. See Andy Warhol’s childhood home, Mr. Roger's home and studio and visit the former Heinz factory while speaking Pittsburghese “so yinz can fit in n’at.” I’ll tell you how Pittsburgh came to be known as the “Steel City,” about legendary Pittsburghers like Andrew Carnegie and Henry J. Heinz, and how the Pittsburgh Renaissance turned Pittsburgh from a smoky, industrial city into “America’s Most Livable City.”
Philadelphia Walking Ghost Tour
Our tour will take you through Philadelphia’s Old City – home to some of America’s oldest and most haunted buildings, roads, and monuments in the nation. “Old City” refers to the area of Philadelphia that was first established as a colony, an area that saw much strife, war, and hardships as the newly formed America fought for its independence. Old City Philadelphia has been continuously inhabited since 1702, making it the oldest residential area in the country – with some residents never really leaving.
Fire in the Valley- Carnegie Steel and the Town That Built America
Pittsburgh's Steel Valley along the Monongahela River made the steel which built America and fueled the Arsenal of Democracy for two World Wars. It was also the site of the Battle of Homestead 9 July 1892, the most consequential armed confrontation between workers and company-employed strikebreakers in American History.
Italian Market Food Tour - Small Group Walking Tour
Along a stretch of 9th Street in the heart of eclectic South Philadelphia lies the Italian Market, one of America’s oldest and largest outdoor markets. This iconic collection of butchers, bakers, specialty shops, and restaurants has been the backbone of this historic neighborhood since its creation in the late 1800s. Join us for a stroll through the Italian Market, among the vibrant fruit stalls, past the fragrant bakeries, into various shops and unique stores, and peeking down hidden alleys covered in fantastical street art. Along the way, you’ll have the chance to sample several delicious dishes, including cannoli, tomato pie, and tacos! Your guide will also introduce you to other Italian Market staples and immigrant-inspired fare, savoring the flavors of the market as you make your way down this iconic street. Wherever your guide leads you, your senses will be popping as you explore one of the most unique, thriving, and diverse areas of the City of Brotherly Love.
