Inside an old-fashioned-style trolley, Lenzner Coach Lines delves into Pittsburgh on its narrated sightseeing tours, with the Historic Neighborhood Tour showing the contrast between the Steel City’s old and new areas and the Heritage Neighborhood Tour exploring the city’s evolution from a fort to a world-class city. With the two-hour Historic Neighborhood Tour, you’ll cruise up the Duquesne Incline to Mount Washington's summit, weave through looming mansions on Millionaire's Row, and shuttle past the stained glass windows of Calvary United Methodist Church. Lenzner’s information tour guides will share the city’s rich history as it travels through the old Allegheny City, where Mark Twain once lost the keys to his horse-carriage. Focusing on Pittsburgh's origins, the two-hour Heritage Neighborhood Tour pauses at the Gothic-influenced Cathedral of Learning and includes admission to the Nationality Classrooms, the Cathedral’s intricately adorned rooms that pay homage to Pittsburgh's rich ethnic background. Gaze at the scenic vista at West End Overlook and the towering spires of the 635-foot-tall PPG Place as your trolley rolls through Pittsburgh's streets.
