I followed my husband to Pittsburgh five 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!

My tour guide was Pam, and she was fantastic! Very knowledgeable. She knew both the standard tour information and answers to the things we all asked. It was delightful, and it also helped me get oriented in the city. I definitely recommend going on any tours this company provides.

If you're visiting or new in town, do yourself a favor and book these tours. We had Corrie as the tour guide, and she was extremely knowledgeable, passionate and energetic. The hours flew by and there's a lot more to the city's history than it seems. The places she took us to would be hard to discover on your own and why this is such great value. This is an excellent way of meeting other fellow travelers and learning about the city from a native. Highly recommended.

Dave was our tour guide and he was fantastic! Very personable and told amazing stories about the city. He kept our interest throughout the 2 hours. He brought a thermos of hot peppermint tea for us to have halfway through, which was a nice touch, especially on a late December evening. Dave knew many facts and tidbits that we would not have gotten on our own. He was knowledgeable and excited to share his city with us. Great tour and an easy way to learn about the history of Pittsburgh!
