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 who 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!

Due to our own circumstances we were unable to attend the event. Valentina tried very hard to accommodate us on another day, but we weren’t able to change our schedule around. We feel that Valentina went above and beyond in trying to make this work for us. We are hoping to be able to rebook on our next trip back to Pittsburgh. Thank you again for your kindness Valentina!

We had a really great experience biking the burg! Kane was our tour guide and was super knowledgeable and personable. We were lucky enough to have our tour be a just us as the weather was really windy, wet and cold but we LOVED it! Kane did everything he could to keep us dry when possible and didn't let the weather negatively impact the experience at all! We are SO glad we did this tour and really learned a lot more about the city. Highly recommend if you are into learning while putting in a little work while doing it 😁 Ask for Kane-he was fantastic!

We had a beautiful day for a bike tour of Pittsburgh! Kane did a great job outfitting everyone and leading us through the city. Each stop was filled with tons of historical information and anecdotal stories that brought the area to life!

Val and our guide, Chuck, we’re super friendly. The tour provided a great overview of the city. We’d highly recommend it, and would definitely do it or other tours by Val and Co again.

Kane was by the far the best tour guide Jeff and I have ever had. His knowledge of Pittsburgh and stories were fantastic. He was always smiling and did an amazing tour. Delightful we will now do a bike tour like this in every city we visit because of Kane. Can’t wait to get back to Pittsburgh and do it again. Cheers. Ann and Jeff
