“From dates, to style of architecture, to history, the PHLF guide knew it all and was very happy to share it.  . . . We have been into the city many, many times. Yesterday, however, gave us a new perspective and we hope to take advantage of some of the other tours. Keep up the good work.”

“This type of tour is a great treat for those of us visiting from out-of-town.”

“Thanks for the free tour. Will definitely recommend it to others.”

 “The impact of the revitalization of this vital City area [Market Square] surprised us, most pleasantly. Out tour guide was very good both in comments and in handling our group.  . . . You have us thinking of finishing our lives with living in downtown Pittsburgh. . . . Keep those grand tours coming.”

“My wife and I inadvertently happened upon the Grant Street Walking Tour last Friday, and it was the best thing that could have happened to us that day. I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed our time on the walk and how much we learned about Pittsburgh’s wonderful history. It was a special joy to me since my grandfather had a restaurant on Grant Street for many years. . . .”

The guide . . . had lots of pictures to share that added a lot to the tour.”

Fourth Avenue is such a hidden gem, I was glad to have the tour guides show me around. . . . It was also neat to have out-of-towners there to see the buildings “new” again through their eyes. . . .  I will be back for more PHLF tours! Thanks for providing this awesome service.”

 “We are living in South Carolina but spend summers in our condo [in downtown Pittsburgh]. We have taken your Friday noon tours and enjoyed them very much. The guides are so knowledgeable and we are amazed at the history that has been preserved there.”

“Congratulations on the great urban tour of the Allegheny Bridges . . . there are not enough superlatives to describe it and the historical knowledge the guides shared.”

PHLF thanks The Fine Foundation, Alfred M. Oppenheimer Memorial Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation, Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh, and VisitPittsburgh for supporting its public tour program.
