A study in contrast takes you to the old and the new in Pittsburgh. Your tour begins with a ride on the historic Duquesne Incline to the top of Mt. Washington for a spectacular view of Pittsburgh's three rivers and Point State Park where the city of Pittsburgh all began. In 1753, a frontiersman names Christopher Gist led young George Washington to the land of the Three Rivers. Travel to old Allegheny City, now known as the North Side, to Manchester, Mexican War Streets, Millionaire's Row and Calvary Church. Journey past the Carnegie Science Center, PNC Park, Heinz Field and the Andy Warhol Museum. A lunch stop is made at Station Square before continuing on with the second half of the tour.

A visit to the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning and its Nationality Classrooms is one of the many highlights on this tour.
The tour was great and the driver was extremely informative. Only negative-- He drove too fast.
The guide clearly knew the city well and had done his homework! It was entertaining and educational. Cathedral of Learning was the best part! - take the time to go back after the tour and see all of the Nationality Rooms (he only had time to show us a few of them). Only complaint is not enough bathroom breaks, so plan accordingly :)
