Allegheny West Civic Council welcomes you to a walking tour of historic Allegheny West. This docent-led tour will guide you through Pittsburgh's smallest historic neighborhood sharing the rich history of a bygone era. The tour starts at Holmes Hall and continues through the neighborhood visiting six additional homes and gardens. Guests will have their palates delighted with small plates from some of Pittsburgh's great eateries and complimented with perfectly paired wines. Our “Tour & Tasting” event continues to grow as one of the premier experiences in Pittsburgh. Tickets are limited and it sells out so purchase early!  


Continue to check the website for participating sponsors.


We apologize, we are unable to customize food and wine pairings.




Each of the three walking tours are broken up into groups of 15.  If members of your group have purchased tickets in a separate transaction please let us know. On your checkout page you with have a chance to list the the name(s) under which the other members of your group purchased tickets.  Tickets purchased in the same transaction will automatically be included in the same group. Walking tours begin at either 1:00pm or 5:00pm. 




Accessibility


The walking tour takes place over approximately 6 square blocks of our neighborhood and many of the private houses have steps that must be negotiated so please plan accordingly. Holmes Hall, at the start of the tour, is a private home and is accessed by approximately 10 steps. The tour happens rain or shine and will not be canceled for weather. If you have questions the accessibility/suitability of the tour for members of your group please contact our volunteers at tours@alleghenywest.org or (412) 444-8687 before purchasing tickets.


Groups


For each walking tour time everyone will be broken up into 6 groups who will be touring at the same time. We will automatically put everyone who purchased tickets in the same Showclix order in the same group. If some members of your group are purchasing tickets in different transactions, please let us know at the time of checkout if there are other people in your party with seperate ticket orders but who would like to be in the same group. 


Refund and Exchange Policy


We are unable to give refunds for unused tickets. You may swap walking tour tickets between tours days/times by calling Showclix 1-888-718-4253  as long as there are tickets remaining in the new tour.

If you give away or sell your tickets to another party please have them check in under the name that the tickets were originally purchased. We are unable to assist you in giving away or selling tickets, please make your own arrangements.
