I followed my husband to Pittsburgh seven years ago, and saw the opportunity to reinvent myself. Inspired by Michael's entrepreneurial spirit I decided to offer historical tours through Pittsburgh. Since I earned a Master's Degree in Art and Architectural History, and I used to live in Rome (Italy), Berlin (Germany) as well as New York City (all great places for art + architecture), I though this would be e great fit. So I founded Bike the Burgh Tours first in 2015, and added Walk the Burgh Tours a year and a half later. After two years of doing every tour myself, I found some equally passionate and enthusiastic, local tour guides who love this city and also strive for excellence. We love to show off our city, we love our job, and we love meeting people from all around the world! Come join us while exploring the Burgh!

Super fun! We learned about the history of the city but more importantly we had a great time listening to spooky stories and seeing gorgeous landmarks.

The staff is super nice! Even though it was super cold and snowing our group felt taken care of and engaged. It’s a super cool way to learn about the city if you’re visiting, or just wanting to hear some creepy stories!

This tour was the perfect introduction to Pittsburgh! We were able to learn a lot about the city’s history, with a fun and spooky twist! Our host was super friendly and a great storyteller. We were even fortunate enough to experience a light snowfall during our tour, it was magical! My only regret was that we chose to schedule this tour at the end of our trip instead of the beginning! There were lots of stops along our tour that I would have liked to tour, but it gives us the perfect excuse to return to this awesome city!

This was a gorgeous experience. The hours went so fast, because it was so fun. I learned so much about Pittsburgh’s history combined with great stories. Hannah was our tour guide, she was friendly, knowledgeable and prepared, I highly recommend this experience!!!

Do it. A little Pittsburgh history. Ghost stories told in the most intriguing way. Our host, Valentina, was very knowledgeable, prepared (nothing haphazard here) and personable. I felt engaged the entire time. All in all a great way to learn a city full of weird history.

Hannah is a very articulate and knowledgeable guide. We had a wonderful Halloween night walking ghost tour. Amazing stories that even some of the locals didn’t know about!
