Comments from 2013 Tour Participants

I work in town for Dollar Bank. I have been on two lunch-hour tours and have so completely enjoyed them. I have lived in Pittsburgh for 62 years and found out so many new and interesting things about our city through the tours. The guides are so informative and nice. I can’t wait for the next one. What a wonderful way to spend one’s lunch hour. Thank you to all the volunteers and people who put these great programs together for the public to enjoy. ––Bonnie Kisty, July 30, 2013


What a fantastic experience for us lifelong city residents to come into downtown and appreciate how lively Market Square is during the afternoon! Our tour guide was organized, efficient, friendly, familiar with all the information about Market Square and the surrounding development. I have recommended the tours to friends and hope to attend the Grant Street tour in the future. I am encouraged to come into town to enjoy the amenities during the day. I also walked over to see the Knit the Bridge and our guide took us to the Legacy Building following the tour and encouraged us to see the artifacts in the Fairmont which I already have seen. The tour helped us appreciate why people would want to live downtown. The brochure we were given is a great source of information. Thank you!––Warren Coax, August 22, 2013


The tour today was great. . . . The guide was so enthusiastic. She makes the tour so much fun. We learned so much. We saw things that we never noticed before. The tour was not too long, although I was getting a little tired, but she made it so interesting we didn’t want to end. I don’t think there is anything you can do to improve your “Downtown’s Best” two-hour tour. ––Gary J. George, August 26, 2013
