We've been coming to Pittsburgh at least once a year for the last 10 years and thought we knew the city well. We decided to take a Molly's Trolley tour just because we had already been to all the big attractions. Were we surprised. We learned lots of history and fun information. I would definitely recommend. If possible, ask for... More

The tour guide was the most boring guide I have ever encountered. There was very very little about the history, architecture, or fun tidbits about Pittsburgh. Instead we got details about a home show at the Convention Center last week. she named businesses as we drove by them. Of the 22 people on the tour, at least 5 were always... More

We happened to be in Pittsburgh for a short few hours on an exceptionally nice and warm Feb day, so we decided to take a guided tour. We selected Molly Tours. The lady at the ticketing desk was very helpful and accommodating (we had a rather large party). The tour started on time and the driver was very clear on... More

This two hour narrated tour travels through the South Side, Oakland, and North Shore neighborhoods surrounding the downtown area, in addition to also touring downtown and culminating with the mandatory spectacular ride up Mt Washington to ride the incline with a majestic view of the city. As a long-time Pittsburgh area resident, I found it interesting and accurate in it's... More

This is a two hour tour of the city. The tour guide was very informative, entertaining, and pleasant. I highly recommend this tour upon arrival in the city.

Leave your car behind, take the 2 hour tour, see places and receive informative, numerous anecdotes from the drivers. The seats lack a little padding, but at least your feet won't be worn out as they would be if you had attempted to cover just 10% of where the tour went. $27 well spent.

The tour guide was very informative without being "cute". I downgraded the tour because visibility from the trolley was very limited. Instead of one solid pane of glass, each window had metal bar 2-3" high right in the middle of the window. Then printed in big block red letters above the bar, on almost every window, were warnings "EMERGENCY EXIT".... More

My husband and I were both raised in the Pittsburgh area and have always been proud to call Pittsburgh our hometown. We have not been downtown for decades (except for going to Benedum or Rivers Casino), so this tour gave us a chance to see the updates to this beautiful city. The trolley was air-conditioned which was comfortable on the... More

Took this two-hour trolley ride with a group from a conference. The speaker had an extremely high level of knowledge about the city, especially architecturally. She talked about everything we passed! The trolley's seats are wooden benches so not very comfortable. But it was air conditioned!
