Was surprised at first to find a free or “pay what you can” tour for my fiancé and I. This was such an awesome experience and gave us more than enough knowledge to walk away with. Saw some of the oldest and historic places in DT and dove into the true spirit of Pittsburgh. Duration of the tour was perfect as well. I would definitely recommend for anyone in the area looking for any type of tour! Russell was very professional and informative the entire time! 10 of 10 would recommend!

This tour was the perfect way to spend an afternoon. If you're looking for a comprehensive Pittsburgh experience then look no further! Russell is knowledgeable and passionate. I especially appreciated the thoughtful answers he gave to all my questions! 10/10 would do again.

This 90-minute walking tour is informative, fun, and a perfect thing to do if you want to get to know this interesting city a bit more. Russell kept the energy up, provided a history lesson, included many fun facts, and took me past many buildings and sights I would have otherwise ignored. A perfect introduction to Pittsburgh. Thank you Russell!

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!
