Russell has given me an unforgettable time in Pittsburg. I enjoyed the best views, learned a lot about Pittsburg, saw great places, waved Amish and visited the wonderful Fallingwater. I can only recommend his tours to everyone that is planning to visit Pittsburgh. Ask for an individual tour, especially if you have little time and would like to see as many as you can. Thanks, Thanks, Thanks Russell for the great days and beautiful music

Having never been to Pittsburgh, I was hoping to find an experience where I’d get the most bang for my buck-luckily, Free Pittsburgh Tours delivered! The tour guide was knowledgeable, quirky, and totally entertaining. He was also flexible to the personal needs of the group, which was greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend this tour for any age group wanting to see Pittsburgh from a different point of view!!

Russell was a wonderful tour guide. I learned quite a lot about the history of Pittsburgh from it's early settlement to the present, and I enjoyed the walk around the downtown area of the city. We started at Point Park and finished in Market Square, a great spot to grab a beer and a burger. I will recommend Russell's tour to all my friends who visit Pittsburgh. Absolutely worth the time!

Our guide, Russell, was super knowledgeable about Pittsburgh and obviously loves sharing his passion for the city with others. Honestly, I was a little nervous about the hour and a half (travelling with kids), but the tour flew by quickly. If you're visiting Pittsburgh, I strongly recommend you take this tour to get an idea of what the city's about and to see some really cool spots!

This tour was amazing! Russell truly cares about Pittsburgh and it’s history. For 90 minutes he takes you all the way around the city and shows you buildings if historical importance. I would definitely do this tour again and will tell all my friends that when they’re in Pittsburgh they should do this tour as well!
