Begin your private tour with an incline ride to the top of Mt. Washington before passing through the only "front door" to an American City. Downtown Pittsburgh, the North Shore, and Oakland are all included. You will see the sights, learn the history, and share insights delivered in a bright and breezy style. You may even get to see Air Force One if the President of the United States is visiting Pittsburgh.
Your private guide will lay all of Pittsburgh at your feet and take you anywhere you want to go! A typical Itinerary begins with a climb up Mt. Washington on the Duquesne Incline for an unexcelled view of one of the world's most perfect city settings. Next you'll open Pittsburgh's Front Door and stop on the North Shore at the Fred Rogers Statue for a view of the world's second tallest fountain and a drive past the home of the Pirates and the Steelers who made Pittsburgh the "City of Champions". Crossing the Allegheny River you'll enter Pittsburgh's Cultural Disrtrict before stopping at the "Tomb of the Unknown Bowler" at PPG Place. Passing through Downtown Pittsburgh you'll see the sights and hear stories of what was once the world's third richest city. Then it's on to Oakland, Pittsburgh's medical and educational center. In the time remaining you can go to the top of Schenley Park for a different vista or return to your starting point via the Monongahela Valley.About Your GuideYour guide was chosen by St. James Palace to escort the future King of England and has provided Guide Service to The White House, many Fortune 500 Corporations, tour companies, familes, and individuals.
