Terrific and safe experience!
Dec 2020
Took the Holiday Lights Tour on 12/5/20 with a group of friends. Corrie did a great job as our guide! She has an amazing talent of walking backwards and talking to the group about the history of Pittsburgh, its architecture and holiday displays. I'm born and raised here and never knew about many of the things she taught us about. Really interesting and enjoyable. Highly recommended!!

The day we went on this tour was COLD! Corrie was our guide and to start she brought tea and honey for her customers. Very nice detail. She was very pleasant, knowledgeable and though the weather was so cold she made it fun, interesting. Tour was full of important information and fun facts about Pittsburgh and it’s history. The city is beautiful with all the Christmas lights and awesome buildings. I enjoyed it a lot. Will recommend it 100%.

Simply Excellent!

Corrie was our tour guide for this trip. She was AMAZING! Her insight into Pittsburgh’s history, it’s current development and culture, and what is coming next was superb. Playful and interesting insights from both history and her own story as a local made this tour really special. I’m coming back to Pittsburgh in large part because of how welcome and informed I felt after the tour!

An Interesting Tour
Nov 2019
Though I moved to this city four years ago, but this was the first time when I enjoyed those lights closely. The Holiday Lights in Pittsburgh are really wonderful! I can't agree more. Also, through the tour, I was told about the history, the stories, and even the legends behind those old buildings. That was my favorite part! Recommend this tour, absolutely.
