Explore the history, culture, and natural beauty of Pittsburgh aboard a hop-on hop-off bus tour. Loop around the city to uncover architecture, landmarks, and entertainment, and then enjoy breathtaking views of nature at the National Aviary and the Duquesne Incline railway.

Board the bus at any of the stops along the route and set off into the city. The bus begins in Southside and winds its way along the river, up into North Shore, through the bustling Strip District, and then into Oakland, home to the University of Pittsburgh. With 21 stops to choose from, you can explore any number of museums, stadiums, restaurants, shopping centers, and entertainment options. Throughout the day, you're also granted access to 2 of the city's top attractions—the National Aviary and the Duquesne Incline.

National Aviary:
Grab the whole family for a visit to the National Aviary, the largest in the United States and the country's only independent indoor nonprofit aviary. Here, you can scope out more than 500 birds of over 150 unique species from around the world. Get chatty with an African Grey Parrot, marvel at the bright colors of the American Flamingo, and make friends with the playful penguins.

Duquesne Incline:
Experience the wonders of a vintage railway with a ride on the Duquesne Incline to the height of Mount Washington. Tour the exhibit's restored wooden cable cars dating back to 1877, and soak up spectacular, panoramic views from the upper observation deck. The incline also contains a small museum, where you can see photos of the original train and find information about similar inclines around the world.
